Things to Consider while Buying a Two-Wheeler


In the century that we live, there are a few things, which are utterly unavoidable. They will happen to you, no matter how hard you try to resist. Traveling places is one of them. The pace at which technology evolves and the rapid strides with which the world today glorifies, having a mode of transportation is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.

Having an appropriate two wheeler insurance plan becomes a must.

The booming rates of commodities today is not a surprise, contorting to which, people who enjoy the luxury of four wheelers are less in number, compared to those who hurtle on two-wheelers. In this article, we shall discuss a few points one must keep in mind before hitting the showrooms to get the obvious necessity.

Points to keep in mind before buying a two-wheeler:

  1. Scooter or Motor Bike?
  • Scooters are generally preferred by people who travel and stay mostly in cities,   and these machines are gearless and support greater maneuverability. They offer a natural sitting position seat which is convenient to use when driving in the city premises.

A Scooter is also, more economically feasible compared to motorbikes and provide a handy two wheeler insurance policy scheme.

  • Motorcycles are known to rule the kings of mountains and hills.  They are equipped with a gearbox and are preferred by people who like to ride with power.


Though more expensive than a scooter, they promise to offer much more comfort and speed which becomes a necessity in our day to day lives.


  1. New two-wheeler or a second-hand two-wheeler?
  • For people who are stepping into the driving shoes for the first time, it is always advisable to buy a second-hand two-wheeler, which can obviously be upgraded later on as one gets more confident and expertise in driving.
  • Also, while buying a second-handtwo-wheeler, one must always be careful and remember to collect these documents from the owner:
    • Collect the originals
    • Collect all the payment receipts
    • Collect the registration certificate
    • Collect the insurance papers
    • Collect the pollution certificate
    • Collect all loan-related documents
    • Collect the two-wheeler insurance
  1. Model and mileage?
  • Model, perhaps, makes one of the most important requisites which are present on the list. One should be able to maintain the balance on the two-wheeler while driving and must also be able to stop the vehicle and apply brakes.
  • Mileage decides how economical your vehicle is.. This is one of the most looked up factors while buying a two-wheeler and an average bike delivers a mileage of about 80 kilometers/ liter respectively.

Having  good mileage becomes a must when one is using the two-wheeler for traveling long distances and frequency of usage is another criterion which helps in estimating a two-wheeler which delivers good mileage.

  • It's always advisable to get two-wheeler insurance regardless of the model and the mileage of the two-wheeler.
  1. The final decision

At the end of the day, what matters is one’s own decision to purchase the two-wheeler. Some important things that must always be kept in mind before you make the final move:

  • Visit multiple dealers. This helps in choosing the best price.
  • Don’t accept anything in one go.
  • Always take a test ride.
  • Bargain.

The important points to keep in mind before buying a two-wheeler have been discussed in brief. Also, do not forget to get your two-wheeler insurance before it’s too late.
