5 things to consider when buying a motorcycle

Honda shares these motorcycle shopping tips


Shopping for a motorcycle can be daunting. There’s a wide variety of brands and models to choose from, so many considerations to factor in such as its weight, comfort, and convenience…

To help you with your motorcycle shopping, Honda Philippines Inc. shares these five key elements to consider:

1. Determine your experience

Some motorcycles are meant for more experienced riders who are used to road challenges. So before you go to the shop, try to determine what you can and cannot do when riding a motorbike.

2. Identify your needs

Why do you need a motorcycle? Why do you even want one? Think about whether you’ll be using it for out-of-town travels, city driving, or zigzagging traffic. Always look for a bike that will cater to your needs.

3. Know your options

Motorcycles have become incredibly diverse now and riders have numerous options to choose from. It is important to know the different options available so you can pick the one that suits you best.

4. Choose a good fit

One of the most important factors when riding a bike is balance, which you will struggle with if your feet cannot reach the foot pegs or if the bike is too heavy. Here are a few other parts to consider: seat height and cushioning, engine heat and vibration, and weight.

5. Budget

Motorcycles are great long-term investments and you shouldn’t only consider the price of the bike. There’s also the cost of fuel and maintenance to look at.

Fit for everyone

Honda recently launched the all-new AirBlade150, which boasts a powerful 150cc SOHC liquid-cooled engine for prime acceleration superiority in stop-and-go situations.

In addition, this bike comes with a front-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS), which prevents wheels from locking up. The bike also packs other features like an all-LED lighting system, smart key with answer back system, anti-theft alarm, a digital meter panel, and a spacious 22.7L utility box.

The AirBlade150 is available for P109,000 in three colors: Matte Galaxy Black Metallic, Candy Caribbean Blue Sea, and Candy Ross Red.
