    Default First bike



    Greetings

    First of all I'll like to apologize on this overasked question...

    Pardon me for that

    As I know now isn't the best timing for bikes due to the increment in coe prices

    But would still like to question,
    Among my preference of R15, RS125, duke, RC200,

    Which one has the most value for money...
    I know I'll be upgrading in the future (rc390 or sth along that line)
    so would like as on user experience on these bike and the better one of the list in terms of prices and parts...

    Thanks a mil

    IMO
    I would go for the Yamaha R15. I am lazy to top up 2T oil so would not go for RS125. Duke and RC200 are expensive but their resale value is still there...
    But I think Yamaha R15 maybe a little under powered but well value for money and not much loss when selling.

    Thank you sir for your reply,
    Was leaning on the r15 too but I know there's slightly more to pay for the sport bike...

    What do you think of the MT 15 that was released recently
    Also any dealers have the best pricing?

    If you'll definitely upgrade to 2A bike, then just go for the cheapest option or even no bike till 2/2A. No point bleeding money in 2B.

    A bit hard to practice for your 2A and class 2 without having something to gain experience on. Even a cheap hand me down kapchai about to be scrapped is better than nothing.

    Ok!

    Thank you for the replies
    I'm guessing that it's better to go used R15 rather than new MT15

    Most prolly will buy from dealer and change every consumable on it

    Got no biker kaki

    I advice against buying from dealerships especially used bikes.

    Many used bikes sit around not being used longer than brand new on-demand bikes and the carburetors get clogged up, requiring cleaning. Tires get dry and brittle and require replacing, including some other rubber components like the fuel line. Batteries will be dead (most of the time they will replace for free though.)

    If you want to buy used, try and check Carousell, since if you buy from direct seller, more likely the owner is still currently using it and the bike is operated regularly.
