Choosing a commuter for travelling to your college is very important. Investing on fast bikes will drain your wallet out of money and on the other hand choosing a bike which gives the best mileage possibly might impact your social life in college. GoPUC.com has decided to give you good tips on how and which bike you should choose.
Step 1: Figure out your budget
Even if your parents are extremely rich, it still doubts the chances of you getting your dream bike even if they can afford it. The reason for this is that parents don’t want to spoil their children. And even more important is because of safety precautions. Trust me. When you reach your parent’s age you would also have the same things in mind. SAFETY STANDS FIRST.
Step 2: Pocket money!
Depending on your pocket money that you might be getting every month will be determine on how much fuel you will be ready to spend on your bike. FUEL PRICES NEVER REALLY FALL .
Step 3: Distance to college
On the other hand, if you live really close to the college you can budge on the mileage. You must also do good research on what kind of traffic you can expect. Whether you have to travel on a highway or by Bangalore’s annoying traffic. There is no point of having a Hayabusa when you’re always stuck in traffic.
Step 4: List out options
It is best to do at least 5 hours of non continuous research on your bikes before you actually buy one. The internet is a good source for this kind of details, but it is always best to go to those automobile outlets and test drive the bikes yourself. Once you have done your test drives, prepare a list of bikes that you fancy and write the following details for each bike.
- Price of Bike
- Mileage (Petrol consumption)
- General servicing charges for that bike
- How many gears
- Top Speed
- Engine CC
- Looks/Appeal (Rating 1-5)
- Your feel of the bike (Rating 1-5)
- Company’s review Rating
