Features That Will Make Your Motorcycle Riding Experience More Comfortable
Date posted on October 1, 2020
movies where the protagonist hops on a motorcycle leading to an epic chase
brings a feeling of joy and excitement that you know only a motorbike can give
you. You don’t only see it in movies, but also in your daily commute as
motorcycles buzz around traffic getting ahead of other vehicles.
You want to feel that rush and freedom you decided to
get a motorcycle for yourself and experience the joy of mobility that
motorcycles bring to their riders. You strapped up and hit the road as you got
yourself a new bike, but only to realize you find it challenging to ride, and your
body starts to ache.
Little did you know that the motorcycle you got yourself was not the perfect match for you since it was too fast and powerful for you to balance and stop, and it was giving you a crooked posture making it impossible for you to use long-term. Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, gave some tips on what aspects of a motorcycle would make your motorcycle experience more comfortable.
Antilock Braking System (ABS)
Speed can be attractive, especially when arriving at
destinations on time, but it has nothing to do with the motorcycle’s
reliability to beat traffic. The size and maneuverability of motorcycles are
enough to help you craftily beat traffic and arrive at your destination without
stress. Focusing too much on speed can be a bad thing or lead to unwanted road
ABS will be valuable to stay safe and ride confidently
on the road because it will keep the tires and brakes from locking and skidding
if you brake too hard. You’ll be more likely to over-apply the brakes than
worry about not using them enough when you are in a panic situation or riding
too fast for your own riding ability.
Smart Key with Anti-Theft Alarm
theft will most likely be one of the biggest worries any rider can have when
they are out riding. You can have numerous ways to protect your motorcycle from
theft, like using chains to secure the wheels or attaching a disc lock on the
front brake disc to lock brake and throttle controls.
these items, however, can be a burden to riders needing to lighten the load
they carry each day. Installing smart key and anti-theft features on your
motorcycle can increase the security of the motorcycle at the same time remove
the burden of bringing additional load on your journey.
One thing to keep in mind is the seat height and how
it impacts your posture. When you reach a point where you need to stop and put
a foot or both feet down, the seat height will need to be high enough for your
legs to reach the ground and help you balance the motorcycle. A seat that’s too
high will cause your ride to lean, which can be difficult for a long time.
Like seat height, handlebar height affects your
posture, which in turn, affects your comfort level while you ride. You need to
be able to reach the hand controls easily when seated on the motorcycle. You
shouldn’t have to reach nor lean too far to use the controls. Your elbows
should be slightly bent when you sit on the motorcycle and reach for the
controls, which will allow you to stay comfortable and alert as you ride.
Never Forget Your Road Partner
A fantastic motorcycle ride will always be
unforgettable experience, and like many owners, you would also want your
motorcycle to be incredibly reliable. HPI heeded this call and provided riders
