If you too are considering purchasing a two-wheeler, it is advisable to keep in mind certain aspects. Following are six things to keep in mind while buying a two-wheeler.

  1. Budget

Determine your monthly expenses, your post-tax income, and savings. Do not spend more than what you can afford. If you buy an expensive vehicle, you will have to pay higher Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs), which may lead to financial strain in the long run.

  1. New or pre-owned bike

The decision to buy a brand new or a second-hand bike depends on not only your financial capability but also your comfort while riding. You may purchase a second-hand bike if you are a first-time rider. If you are buying a pre-owned vehicle, it is necessary to make sure all the paperwork is in order, such as registration certificate, Pollution Under Control (PUC), and bike insurance, besides others.

  1. Needs and purpose

Individuals have varied purposes of buying a two-wheeler. While some purchase a bike for cruising around, some purchase it for the basic need of transportation. It is also necessary to consider whether you will be riding through lots of traffic or travel long distances with the bike. Make a choice based on your needs.

  1. Model and mileage

With numerous brands and models to choose from, it becomes quite difficult to narrow down your options. Opt for a bike that is latest and within your budget. Take the two-wheeler for a test drive to get an idea of the riding experience. Another important aspect to consider is the fuel efficiency of the bike. Note that the mileage is generally influenced by the maintenance and the style of riding. Also, keep in mind that the mileage offered while riding on the highway differs from that on city roads and small roads.

  1. Bike features

Different bikes come with varied features. Examine the body graphics, seating comfort, storage space, and headlight styling, besides other features. Also, check the safety features of the bike. Choose a two-wheeler that is durable and comfortable.

  1. Add-ons

An advantage of purchasing a two-wheeler is that you may customize it based on your personality and riding needs. You may invest in a custom exhaust, saddlebags, illuminated lights, windscreen, and backrest, among many other additional features.

  1. Service centers

Your two-wheeler will require regular maintenance and servicing. Therefore identify those brands that have their local service centers nearby so that in the case of an emergency, you do not have to travel long distances for repairs and services. Furthermore, make sure that spare parts are easily available at such service centers.

Consider the aforementioned factors and select the model you wish to buy. Visit numerous dealers and shortlist the one offering the best price. Once you have made the purchase, ensure that you get all the necessary documents like RC book, invoice paper and most importantly, insurance papers. Two-wheeler insurance is a must as it provides your bike coverage against accidents and other dangers. An insurance policy also offers you risk coverage towards physical injury and third party liability.
