We researched at MBI ourselves and discovered the top 3 most reliable motorcycles. Fewer failures and fewer surprise bills! It is very good to evaluate a bike on factors such as appearance or economy (sometimes we make this mistake with partners!) but what about reliability?
When it comes to reliability crunch can provide a great satisfaction and save more money in the long run than the economy. Reliable two-wheelers can retain their value even when other bikes are heavily worn, so if you’re buying new or used, choosing a reliable model or brand can help you have a stress – free cycling experience and leave more money in your pocket to spend on your arrival-on time!
We did some research to find the most reliable bikes, so here are the top 3:-
1. Yamaha MT-01 (from 2005)
Now it’s a high performance bike to a current 1670cc, so it won’t compete with most 125 models on fuel, but it will look (and sound) better in traffic and will be a lot more fun on the weekend. The build quality is high. A big engine and a good sound can mean vibrations, so keep all those nuts and bolts at bay and she will rarely come on a date.
2. Honda vt125c Shadow (from 1999)
a great low cc intro for cruisers (seems the part, but easy to drive) the only downside will be when other great cruisers leave you on club rides. You can leave early or be late (at least, however, you will be able to shake all the glitches that happen to you on the road!)
3. Honda C1100 X11 (1999-2002)
This larger Honda also shines in more ways than one. It is known for its reliability and apparently the oil comes out almost clean in maintenance intervals! Another high quality construction bike from Honda. The reports are that it’s not that great about cornering manipulation, but let’s face it guys, those who buy reliably will slow down to save tire wear!
So it is clear, just like in the automotive industry, that the Japanese names are at the top of the charts in terms of reliability and what we love here is that none of these bikes look like your uncle’s old hand drill, they are all elegant and pleasant with a lot of merit. As a rule, you pay more for a reliable Jap bike. Parts and repairs also get more expensive when things go wrong except that this is usually not the matter. We can also benefit from the fact that so many foreign manufacturers have chosen India or are now choosing India.
It makes sense that if a manufacturer does not provide many spare parts, if you need something, it will be more expensive. This is a simple matter of economies of scale and also applies to maintenance. It also makes sense that good engineering, metal and machining / fabrication costs more.
We’ve all heard other owners brag that the reason they mount a” XXXX “is because” the parts are so inexpensive “our question should be” How do you know?”it’s like the story of the faithful brush .. “Only three new handles and six new heads in 20 years!’
Breakdowns can mean costs, lost work (even the loss of a job), security risks or even a missed opportunity for the family, not to mention all this embarrassment on a ruin club trip, so it’s worth considering reliability when buying a motorcycle.
