Lockdowns, social distancing and the overall effects of the Corona virus have forced many businesses to close in 2020, and the transportation industry is just one of the industries that has been affected. However, most of us still need to get from one place to another, and as a result more people are using Honda scooters and motorcycles instead of a car or public transportation. Using public transport means a greater risk of the virus spreading between people, especially of course if they are closely packed together. Honda bikes have several other advantages over public transportation, in addition to the safety aspect:
Motorcycles Can Save You Money
Many people were forced to try to live on a lot less than they were used to during the pandemic, when a lot of operations and companies were forced to close. And many of us are still somewhat reluctant to use public transport, despite the fact that it has begun to open back up in many areas. It’s just about impossible to observe social distancing when you’re on a crowded platform or bus stop waiting for a train or bus that’s probably going to be equally crowded. Add to that the fact that using public transportation can be costly, and it’s no wonder that more and more of us are looking at Honda scooters and bikes as a safe and affordable method of transportation.
Motorcycles Save Time
If you are used to taking public transportation to and from work, you know just how slow it can be at the best of times, as well as overcrowded. This is especially true in the morning and late afternoon, when rush hour can often see traffic at a standstill. Having a motorbike means you can navigate slow or standing traffic easily, and this can save you valuable time. Saving time on getting to and from your job is especially important if you have several different jobs.
Freedom and Flexibility
Choosing a scooter or a motorcycle over public transportation also means you aren’t subject to the schedule that’s set by the bus or train company. You can simply get on your bike and ride to work, the office or a friend’s house as and when you need to. This freedom and flexibility appeals to an increasing number of people who have opted for a Honda scooter or bike instead of being at the mercy of public transport schedules.
