Benefits of commuting on a motorcycle
According to the RAC, the average commuter will save up to 3 hours of travelling per week compared to those who travel by car. That’s nearly 20 minutes more in bed in the morning and 20 minutes quicker going home every single day. You also don’t have to organise your life around a bus or train timetable, you can leave when you want.
NO MORE TRAFFIC JAMS
You can weave through stationary traffic and even use bus lanes to escape the terrible traffic.
SAVE MONEY ON FUEL
Say you live 20 miles away from your workplace:
SAVE MONEY ON TAX AND INSURANCE
Road tax on scooters and 125cc motorcycles is only £17 per year with the biggest engine bikes (+600cc) coming to only £78 per year. Insurance also tends to cost less for motorcycles than it does for cars
SAVE MONEY ON COST
As well as being cheaper to run, motorcycles have also proven to save money on general cost. Prices for a new Honda starts from as little as £1999 with used bikes being cheaper again and with finance options available, it is a lot more affordable than a car. (We will have some offers on Facebook and our website during April, making them even more affordable)
According to geton.co.uk, you would also save money against public transport. Monthly train or bus passes would cover the repayments on a fairly decent new motorcycle and definitely a used one.
ENJOY YOUR DAILY COMMUTE
According to MCIA, riders tend to rate their commute as more enjoyable than other transport users. Motorcycles allow you the freedom to avoid major traffic jams, go when you want and not work on a timetable and get a little excitement on your normally boring ride to work or school.
EASY TO LEARN
Learning to ride a motorcycle is a lot easier than learning to drive a car, requiring a lot less time, effort and money. You can ride up to a 125cc with L plates by doing only one test – your CBT course. This course costs as little as £180 and is your stepping stone to bigger and better bikes. However you MUST have a CBT before you can ride any motorcycle – it’s the law.
We have a certified instructor with a great success rate who can discuss your options with you and put your through the tests – click here for more information.
