Hi,

 

I'm new here.

 

I'm new to the biking scene, haven't taken 2B license, but did some research about bikes to get.

 

My main intention of getting a bike is for travelling from point A to B. But I hate the fact that the moped is the way for me to go because its fugly.

I dun know much about power yet because I haven't ridden a bike (been a pillion though) but must be 4 stroke engine.

In terms of the looks I like, leaning towards sport bike looks, but since I'll need a bike box, prolly will end up with a naked bike.

Actually, I'm eyeing the pulsar like what you recommended.

Any comments? Good FC bikes are much appreciated.

 

BTW, budget is

 

Thx in advance for any advise...

try a second hand YBR. its really comfortable, and newbie friendly. Your insurance might blow your budget into the sky, though.

Hi friends.

 

I was just wondering if anyone could help me out here. I'm new to biking, just passed lesson 5 and applied for the PDL. I'll take my first lesson 6 the coming tuesday!

 

I'm was wondering if there's any model in the market that's light weight and small? I'm female and am rather short. Are the seat heights on all bikes adjustable according to preference when you buy the bike?

 

Hope for responses! I want to start saving up for a bike already and need something to work towards, thus some reccommendations to start me off cause I'm pretty clueless. =/

 

hey...i saw u on np thread...i tot uve alreadi got urself a sonic in sept...but nw, onli taking pract 6???o_Oo_O

Sept' 08 - ??????? - HONDA NSR 150 SP (FU *** H)

Hi guys........

Still you won't decided that which bike is suitable for you.

Before buying a bike it must be considered the following points-

1-whether it is Economic or High performance

2-whether it is Two stroke or Four stroke

 

if you want to buy Economic bike then you go through HeroHonda or Honda.

Other wise you go through the Yamaha, Bajaj etc.

I forgotten to mention that a manual clutch is a must. I heard that one of the kup with clutch is sonic. U guys know of any other kup with clutch?

interesting thread... really useful, though quite brief...

to new license holders or soon to be license holders, read up on the various bike reviews on the bikes u are considering.

 

i know the search function in this forum isnt the best since most of the posts are in short form and the search engine only search for long words... but dont give up, scroll thru all the pages coz chances are, whatever ur looking for has already been brought up b4 and the past threads usually have more info then recent ones.

 

decide on a few choices then take a trip down to any bike shops for test ride on the bikes u wanna know bout once u get ur license. just take care not to be swayed by their salesman coz they can really talk up a storm.

 

for info and updates on the prices of various bikes, just look thru the used bike section of the forum for a rough gauge. (from own exp)

 

 

prices are affected by alot of things.

 

year of make,

eg. 2008 rs125 = 13k

1998 rs125 = 1.8k

made in where

(eg. made in japan or made in thailand, some bikes like sp are made in two countries. japan and thailand. MAY be wrong bout this.),

diff in displacement

(eg. daelim roadwin has the normal 125cc version and 140cc version called 'x5', diff in price is 1k)

number of owners

types of accesories included

types of mod included

years of COE left

months of road tax left

visual condition

(dents on the tank, scrape marks on the fairing etc)

 

 

these are just some of the things to take into account when pricing of a bike is concerned.

 

but if u think a bike is too cheap to be true, it probably is and thats is when u should come down to the forum to ask for advice.

 

 

o ya, add to the list of sport bikes,

 

cbr125

r15

roadwin r125

derbi gpr125

nsr hornet 125

tzm 125

 

and to the list of naked bikes

 

pulsar 200

xcd 135 (new model from bajaj, saw it in my carpark, body is like a pulsar 180 but the headlights are abit diff, model name may be sala..)

yamaha fazer 150

 

to the list of scooters

 

daelim b-bone (loads of ways to customise)

yamaha fino

 

scramblers

 

derbi (not sure of the models, but derbi has come up with a few 2b class enduro, supermotard, trail-like bikes. derbi is from barcelona if im not wrong)

racing in traffic...

:cool:

Ah, so this thread is still alive, huh.

 

The bajaj xcd135 looks to be an outstanding dispatch bike. Small, lightweight frame pulled by a 4 stroke 135cc engine that boasts of a fuel consumption of around 90km/l, with a tank of 10l, 900km of milleage. i am a little cynical as to whether thats really true, but it has the all important kicckstart and enclosing chainguard.

 

The new bajaj pulsar 180 v4 boasts of an outlook that is similar to the current pulsar 200, and clip on handlebars. I dont like it much, since it doesnt have a kickstart to fall back on, and its chainguard is now an open type. i am still using the same chain for almost 3 years now, and i would reckon its because of my enclosing chainguard, and regular lubrication with expanded engine oil.

 

@krusty why not? Its a good bike. Might be slower then other 200cc bikes, but with a large wheel base, its sure to be really comfy.

i assume you'll need to top up insurance and coi your brother's bike? Thats a good idea. You're brother will have a load off his shoulders, plus he gets to see his darling in good hands.

Hi Frens

 

First time buying scooter, need some advice from you guys.

I just got my 2B this month, interested in scooter for transport and some light delivery.

I was introduce Grand Dink 150CC(2nd hand, 7yrs COE, $4k OTR), and Suzuki AN125CC(new, $5100 OTR), can anyone advise me which is better?

Or any other scooter to intro,i'm rather short(156cm), i really need help, my budget, about $4k, if new scooter abt $5k is ok. I would prefer a 4 stroke scooter.

I am an Old Man riding a Nuovo 115 for 5 years now. It's a good bike, easy to ride, but the storage space is not big enough. Thinking of buying a new scooter (flat base) for putting Marketing stuff at the footrest. Could anyone recommend or suggest any model for me?

The problem with using import bikes like Bajaj is the some of the specialised parts i.e. fairings and engine parts MAY not be obtainable from LBS. Hence purchasing these parts can be a real hassle, not to mention prices may be a little expensive
