According to Motoservices.com, more than 150,000 registrations of two-wheelers were registered in 2017 in France: motorcycles and scooters continue to seduce and constitute an alternative to the sacrosanct car. It must be said that they have many assets to assert in relation to the automobile. Here are 5 good reasons to opt for a motorbike or a scooter, when motorbike credit rates are more accessible than ever (from 0.75%!).
1. To save time
Who has never been frustrated with the idea of getting behind the wheel of your vehicle to get stuck for long minutes (or even hours) in endless traffic jams? On average, motorists lost 23 hours in traffic jams in 2016 according to Inrix, a figure likely to increase considerably when you live near large cities (65 hours in Paris!). Converting to two-wheelers is like escaping this type of inconvenience.
2. Lower initial investment than a car
It is impossible to acquire a new car without investing sums of several thousand USD. Unless you choose a particularly luxurious model of scooter or motorcycle, you will be able to take the handlebars of your new two-wheeler without jeopardizing the financial balance of your home! Especially since the low rates of motorcycle credit favor the purchase of a two-wheeler : with a loan of less than $ 10,000, the average figures are 1.03% over 12 months and 2.90% over 24 months according to Isolde.
Depending on the bike you choose, you can opt for a motorcycle loan with the credit rates quoted above and if you opt for a second-hand model not exceeding 2,000 USD, a loan staff may be sufficient to finance a two-wheeler .
3. More attractive operating costs
Favoring two-wheelers also means enjoying substantial savings on your insurance contract and the maintenance of your vehicle, which will quickly offset the costs inherent in the purchase of a helmet, gloves or a jacket. If the energy performance varies depending on the model, the fuel consumption of a two-wheeler is also always lower than that of an automobile.
4. Easy way to park
Thanks to your two-wheeler, you no longer have to waste your time looking for a suitable parking space. Those reserved specifically for motorcycles have been increasing steadily for several years and proportionately much easier to find than a parking space for cars.
5. For the pleasure of driving
Taking the handlebars of a two-wheeler means enjoying real driving pleasure and connecting to your surroundings. When you travel, you will therefore be able to enjoy the smells of the seaside, the mountains or the countryside.
