riding a class 2 bike in sg


Recommended Posts

Usually people have a 2B as a sidebike, upkeep for 2B is quite cheap while the class 2 bike is rarely used.

 

If you can afford a car, you can afford 2 bikes, cars on the other hand are retardedly expensive.

i donno which is worth to get super 4 or fz8... T_T

 

DoubleV,

I suppose this question is a fairly straightforward one?

if your are talking "worth", then its the CB400SF. Hands down.

As you may already know, it is a very common bike here, maybe the 2nd most common in sg.

the advantage of being "common"? spare parts and servicing easier to find. prices also lower, somewhat.

its more that enough for our sg roads as someone here pointed it out.

 

I've ridden my PB1 + a 45 liter givi (the old boxy ugly one) + my humble battlax to Pahang, in-between my service intervals.

rode it in wet & dry.

wore only jeans, sports shoe, the "engineering" jacket & half face helmet.

without the fairing head or belly pan. No problem.

of course, you cannot compare the power of the yammie la...

 

 

just my $0.02 :angel:

Goodee hor hot goodee... Mat witz sebastian! :p

Save lor. I did do some analysis last time and if I remember correctly, the petrol saved by not using the class 2 is almost enough to maintain a cheap class 2b.

dont forget the maintenance cost. the higher the usage the earlier the wear n tear.

 

so having a cheap2 low cost 2b bike for the everyday run n a class 2 bike for the luxury run its actually a good idea

actually I been there done that

 

been using hayabusa as the main bike for 5 years.

 

then comes wear n tear cost which actually could buy a class 2b bike.

 

Further more... repair cost does not add value to your bike.

 

so use cheap2 class 2b bike as the main bike

 

then a class 2 bike as the luxury run...

 

try to sell the class 2 bike within 2 years so wear n tear and depreciation is minimal.

hi, need guide Honda Deauville vs ST1100?

ST1100 look appear better n bigger cc but we dun need such big cc on the road or maybe the ride feel is different as compare Deauville?

Deauville power 650cc sound good enough for class 2 i guess

 

If you're planning to ride in Malaysia, get the ST.

na, not for touring. st1100 look nice but seems over powered for me

what about chopper?

 

riding a chopper is comfortable if you are riding long distances, with straight-ish roads.

in city riding? not comfortable because of handling.

dont worry. I learn that too.... my 2005 busa manage to sell at $4k only. pathetic. so I quickly dekit n sell off cheap2

 

so if u think the aftermarket $3k rims. brembo pumps n monoblock calipers will add value...

 

well u need to wait to find that buyer.

 

coz reality is accessories is not covered in the insurance.

 

so its best if leave the bike stock. if gonna overhaul. recount the budjet. if possible sell.

 

a custom bike will only make it even harder to sell...

Does anyone know the difference for super 4 servicing price and fz8 price? is the range similar?

 

Basic things like oil change etc are the same. Problem is cos super 4 requires as much engine oil as most class 2 bikes. Of course parts would be cheaper for the s4 and it should be slightly more economical in terms of fuel. Road tax and insurance should be slightly cheaper. Tyres should be same if if it's spec 1 onwards. I used to think my s4 is enough, but thinking of buying a brand new s4 meant if I spent abit more, I could buy a brand new class 2 too. Also 400cc 2 up, box, spore mad traffic, just didn't cut it for me. It's still hard to pull away from traffic into spaces.
