Riding a motorcycle is more than just an exciting way to get around—it’s also incredibly fuel-efficient. Americans have a love affair with cars and bikes, but with gas prices prone to fluctuation without notice, it seems like having a fuel-efficient vehicle available would be a wise investment for anyone. While some people will opt for incredibly unattractive hybrid cars, others go for something with a bit of style that is actually fun to drive. If you are in the former group, are you ready to sell your car and buy a motorcycle?
Let’s take a look at some of the incredible benefits of riding your own motorcycle, or taking advantage of a motorbike rental in Las Vegas.
Low fuel costs
The simple fact of the matter is that two wheels beats most four-wheeled vehicles when it comes to fuel efficiency. On average, your typical bike is going to get between 40 and 60 miles to the gallon. Sure, some hybrids can do that, but at what cost? Bikes are light and agile and don’t have the weight of even lighter-end cars. Not to mention that bikes look really cool while getting great gas mileage.
Low ownership costs
Today, your average hybrid or electric vehicle is going to set you back $30,000 or more. If you ask us, that’s a lot for a car that is supposed to save you a ton of money on gas. Motorcycles not only save you about the same on gas as a pricy electric car, but they are also naturally cheaper than a run-of-the-mill car. Did we mention that they look way cooler, too? Maintenance is also much less expensive than it is on a car. Not only are there fewer systems to worry about (A/C, heating, power locks and windows), but the parts and labor costs are less on average, as well.
Bikes get a bad rap for not being as versatile as a car, but it’s really more about how they are used. Many full-time riders can do everything they need to—from grocery shopping to running errands—without a car or truck. In the instances when they actually have to rent or borrow a car, they are still not spending as much money as they would if they actually owned the car.
What’s more, bikes are lots better in heavy traffic. Depending on the laws in your state, a bike can cut lanes to get where it is going, while car and truck drivers are stuck wishing they had bikes. Sure, you probably won’t want to ride in the snow, but all other types of weather require nothing more than the right gear and a little extra caution.
These are just a few benefits of riding a motorcycle as your primary mode of transportation, but a motorbike rental in Las Vegas has some added benefits of its own. For one thing, renting gives you the opportunity to try out a bike to see if it’s something you want to invest in later. Contact Escape Eagles for rental information!
