Driving a car is an awesome feeling, but riding a motorbike on the asphalt with the wind in your face is a thrilling and an exhilarating experience. Whether you are an adventurer or a daily commuter, motorbikes have come a long way since their invention.
Bikes are an integral part of the roads these days and hence, there are many different types of them available for sale in the market.
In fact, we know a lot of our applicants are looking for motorbikes as well as cars, so we have put together our favourite bikes for 2016. What’s more, car owners need to watch out for these bikes as they overtake them this year – in popularity, as well as on the roads! Similar to car financing, motorcycle enthusiasts can also opt for motorbike financing, even with poor credit.
Honda Africa Twin
This motorbike is an award-winning adrenaline booster that will surely satisfy your cravings for an adventure. Also known as the Honda CFR 1000L, it is based on an older bike that was manufactured by Honda during the 1980s to compete in the Paris-to-Dakar Rally.
It offers an automatic transmission, 12V connectors, heated grips, crash bars, panniers, superior ergonomics, powerful engine, and an excellent grip on- and off-road. It is perfect for adventurers and globe-trotters, but can also be ridden by regular road commuters.
Victory Empulse TT
If you want efficiency and power, then the Victory Empulse TT won’t disappoint you. Powered by an AC induction motor with a permanent magnet, this electric bike consists of a 6-speed transmission which is quite bizarre for an electric motorbike. It produces 54 horsepower and torque of 61 foot-pounds. A single charge allows you to travel up to a distance of about 100 miles and the bike’s top speed is a bit over 100 mph.
Based on the older SV650 which was a big hit in 1999, the new 2016 SV650 sports a retro look, an improved engine, lower body weight, and the same body frame as the original. The motorbike produces 75 horsepower.
This street sports bike is an excellent choice for daily commuters who want to travel in style, but appear tough at the same time. It boasts an inline engine of capacity 806 cc and has a high rev of more than 12,000 rpm. Though the bike weighs 500 pounds, the engine is more than capable of propelling it to high speeds.
KTM Duke 390
KTM has always been at the forefront of racing bikes and street bikes and the Duke 390 is no exception. Featuring a powerful 373 cc engine, it is responsive, fun, and light; the weight of the street bike is only 300 pounds.
