    In this day and age when you can buy anything from a forty-rupees-nail polish to a diamond necklace worth lakhs online with just some clicks, buying yourself a new ride should be easier than pie. And it is, but how will you make the right choice? Many people would say that buying a vehicle online is not a good idea because like shoes, you need to give it a test ride to know that it’s right for you. This may be right, but you can use the internet to narrow down your choices a lot, and also to make the final purchase. After you have narrowed down to a few bikes, you only need to take a few bikes for test rides.

    According to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), almost 77% of India's vehicle market is controlled by two-wheelers. Buying a two wheeler is not a difficult task. As long as you have a decent job you should be able to get one of the many loans with very low down payment and other attractive features. Not to mention the tempting promotional offers. With so many options, there is good chance you will be very confused. So we are providing you with some guidelines to go by when it comes to choosing your bike online. First do your online research thoroughly. Read as many reviews as possible.

    Here are some parameters that you should consider when looking online.

    1. Usage

      The first thing you need to consider while selecting a two-wheeler is the purpose. Why do you need a bike? Is it for general commute? Is it for cruising long distances or is it for sports? This should help narrow down your options.

    2. Budget

      There is no point looking for a bike way out of your budget. Figure out how much EMI you can spare each month, after all your other expenses. Then go from there. Look online for the best deals.

    3. Mileage

      There are so many options for bikes with great fuel efficiency. Look online for reviews, analysis and comparisons. The mileage under test conditions is not what you will get on the road, so don’t expect what you hear from the seller to be extremely accurate. Fuel consumption will depend on the riding style and maintenance.

    4. Body Features

      Durability is something that we all look out for when we buy anything expensive. However, make it a point to keep your style in mind when you make your choice. You want a bike that will compliment you. Keep an eye out for headlight styling, safety features, storage space, body graphics, seating comforts etc.

    5. Maintenance and Servicing

      Don’t make the mistake of ignoring this important factor. Maintenance and service will take a lot out of your pocket in your future with the bike. Go for a manufacturer who has extensive network of service centers around the city. They should also be able to provide spare parts easily.

    6. Ease of Handling

      Generally you will not be the only person using the bike in the house. Chances are other members and friends will also use the bike. So, go for a bike that can be handled by everyone.

    7. Type of Roads

      This is an extension of the first point of bike usage. A two-wheeler that is great on city roads might not be a good choice on rough roads. If your travel includes such routes, you need a vehicle with better suspension. Go for a two-wheeler that has a reliable shock absorbing mechanism for managing longer bumpier rides.

      Two-wheelers that are made for city roads may not fare well on long, rough roads and vice-versa. Choose two-wheelers with shock absorbing mechanism and better suspension for longer bumpier roads.

    8. Resale Value

      Look for a bike that has a decent resale value. Factors like service center network, miles run, maintenance etc can help make your decision.

      After considering all these factors, and doing your research well, you should be able to narrow down your options. After which you can test drive the few you have chosen. Buying can be done online for best prices and deals.
