i think class 2 advantages is the smooth engine and the power to accelerate when needed.. also better braking?

 

when wud u need power? most of the times, its the avalability of power that puts us into the problem.

I feel the absence of power will avoid you being in those unfavorable situations in the 1st place.

class 2 sportsbike definitely not recommended for everyday riding.

 

only class 2 bike i feel worthy of everyday riding is the NC series.

Honda NSR150SP: 2012-2015

Honda RVF NC35: 2015

Triumph Daytona 675: 2015-present

SYM GTS 200: 2016-present

there are alot of unfavourable positions that im talking about, ie behind 2 big trucks but they are not going too slow for you to overtake easily. This is just one of the many situations. Bigger CC bike is to your advantage if you know how to control necessarily. cheers bro

As long as you are a safe rider, a bigger cc is always better. You will never know when you will need the power.

 

totally agreed. im riding honda nm4 after switching from 2b bikes. i feel more safe now when im riding.

wat speed wud those 2 big trucks be on?

anything within the speed limit, even my fat & heavy phantom can easily overtake them.

Of cos u feel safer with more power... like being a superman vs a computer geek. n my point is that a computer geek will know better than to get himself into situations where he needs to use any strength let alone super human strength...

 

talking in sg context of cos, as the thread title states.

 

regardless, riding a bike is more than just what makes sense.. is it abt enjoying the ride itself, so class 2 is the way to go!

Agree, the feel of riding a class 2 bike is totally different from class 2A and 2B. Safe or not is other story, it's rider habit.

I'm looking for a class 2 bike for daily commute. Low maintenance cost and low fuel consumption.

Was told NC750 is good for daily commute with low fuel consumption.

Any others bike to recommend?

definitely agree.

 

have experienced riding Class 2B all the way to Class 2 and I can say with 101% guarantee with chop, there are tons of scenarios where you may suddenly need the extra power just to get out of a sticky or potentially sticky situation. a small bike's power isn't enough for you to accelerate away from it, and neither is the braking power on it to stop you from riding straight into it.

 

as for the extra power getting one into trouble in the first place, well.....i will quote what a friend of mine riding a 1000cc sportsbike told me when i was still on my 125cc...."the power is all in your right hand".......

Fuel consumption better than super 4...

Eng oil change I believe it's same.

Runs cooler than revo

Acceleration lose to revo a little but more than enough.

I believe it's almost the same price brand new?

 

Another point about a bigger CC bike... It usually comes with abs and much better braking power... With more tire contact to the ground.

 

If I were to get a 125cc, I'll be looking at the tricity for Singapore riding... :)

My drz is so much more powerful than my Versys.. Sigh... Only place it looses is on highway cruising.. Miss it a lot when riding in sg..

 

simply change lower sprocket ratio, drz design for dirt road.

if u want higher cruising speed change to a smaller rear sprocket,

eg. if rear sprocket on ur bike is 45 teeth than use 42 or 40 teeth rear sprocket.

the effect increase cruising speed, decrease in acceleration (pickup).

 

ps;

fc will increase due to heavier load.

can't wait to get a class 2 license! I think it's better to go for class 2 regardless if you're gonna get a class 2 bike or not. Not only it gives you the flexibility to get a class 2 bike if you want, when you're overseas and the only available bike for rental is the 1000cc tourer/cruiser, you will wish you'd have the class 2 license! Totally agree on having more power on a bike than having lesser. I feel much safer on my gsr 400 than on my vespa as a lot of the bros pointed out, gets you out of sticky situations fast~
