buying a bike or a scooter

Today, there are a lot of variants and new models in the scooter and bike segments hence it becomes very difficult to make the right decision. You have a plethora of options but, this is where the problem arises. Some scooters look identical, some have the same displacement and some have the same price. But where there is choice, there is confusion. While buying a commuter scooter or a bike, one should always consider buying a perfect fit for oneself, because the vehicle isn’t an FMCG product. As a result we should always select a perfect fit according to the needs and conditions as well as the purpose behind buying a particular scooter. Choosing a scooter is the perennial confusion in the market. So, today we make things easier for you. We give you a checklist that you should consider before buying a scooter. One should always consider a checklist including various important points such as weight, storage, mileage, height, durability, style and colour, service centre, availability, spare, resale value and budget. When you actually go to a showroom before making a decision you should always go through a variety of options considering your main purpose. Making a right decision before buying a good vehicle is the most important step in this process.

The following important points from the checklist can be referred in detail in this process.

  • Weight

Weight is one of those important points that should be considered while buying a vehicle. According to your strength and your control on the vehicle, a vehicle with a suitable weight should be considered. Women should really need to take care of this point, nowadays there are lightweight bikes available but it is extremely important to check the weight of the two-wheelers for a safe and comfortable ride.

  • Storage

When it comes to buying a vehicle mainly for transport, the storage element becomes the most important part to be considered. A vehicle with a good amount of storage becomes a lot useful for storing a lot of things in a single go. A vehicle with a sufficient storage is more useful for the college and office going crowd.

  • Mileage

KitnaDeti Hai? Is the most common slang used before buying any type of two-wheeler. The mileage should always receive due consideration. A vehicle should always be pocket-friendly when it comes to fuel expenses. A good two-wheeler should give you a mileage of 35 to 40 kms per litre. It is preferable to consider mileage in the city and not that of highway as most of the travelling happens in the city traffic and in narrow nooks and corners of the city streets.

  • Height

While buying a vehicle, the height of the rider should be considered. For a short person, a vehicle with lower seat is more comfortable. When the height of the rider is in proportion with the vehicle it become easier for him to control as well as balance the bike.

  • Durability

A bike should always be a durable one as it should be able to withstand harsh weather conditions and adapt to all types of roads. A bike should not be vulnerable to damages. Check out the review of the bike before buying it, because it doesn’t make sense to make a hasty decision and settle with a wrong vehicle which can prove to be dangerous to your life, literally.

  • Service Center

The location of your service centre should be within your reach. In case of any emergencies, you should not spend time, traveling long distances for repairs and services. The service centre should have all the facilities to get a proper servicing for your bike.

  • Availability of spare parts

The spare parts should be easily available in case of emergencies. One should avoid waiting long periods for some necessary spare parts as it may cause any unforeseen mishaps.

  • Resale Value

Resale price totally depends upon the brand, year and current condition of bike. A branded bike could give you better deal as compared to unevaluated two-wheelers. If you are looking for any short term investments, a bike with a good resale value should receive due consideration. A bike with poor resale value leads to unnecessary losses.

  • Budget

Budget is a crucial element while investing in a bike. A budget should be set so that you can have a lot of options and reduce confusion. You can buy a good two-wheeler within a budget of Rs.60,000. If you are ready to pay a little more, new launched bikes with extra features and colours can also be part of your cart.

  • Style and Colour

There are lot of variants to choose from numerous styles and colours. Selecting a good colour and smart style is always better as it adds to your style while riding it. Hence you should always consider all the colours which are available within a specific model that you have already selected.
