Hi all. I'm getting sponsored 2B license by my company (not doing delivery), so I'm considering getting a bike for casual transport.
It's now a toss-up between the following:
- getting a 10+ years old wave for 5k with 7.5 years COE left
- getting a brand new wave or street bike (looking at one of the Honda CBR bikes)
- getting a 4 years old 200cc KTM Duke from a colleague/friend with 6 years left (price still discussing; market price is close to 10k)
I was on the fence about getting a bike because it was either the very old wave or having to deal with the very inflated COE. The third choice seems perfect.
I'm concerned about the fuel consumption, cost of servicing and availability of parts. I'm leaning more towards a street bike than my original choice of Wave because I'd like to ATGATT, and it'll look less weird on a bike like the Duke.
Any advice guys?
