When cities grow, so do the number of people on the road. Large urban areas like the Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Bahru all have similar issues related to a growing population, traffic congestion and lack of parking. While a handful may have the luxury of being chauffeur driven to work, the rest of us have to deal with this on a daily basis.

One way to beat the traffic and get out of this dreary and sometimes monotonous daily grind is to unleash your urban warrior and choose a sexy, sporty two-wheeler that will make your ride to work more fun.

Here’s where sports bikes come in, two-wheeled vehicles that get you from point A to point B in the quickest time possible. Their high-revving nature and nimbleness taking inspiration from GP winners such a Mick Doohan, Valentino Rossi, Nicky Hayden and Marc Marquez who conquered the track and brought to life for you and me to enjoy on the road.



My Way or the Highway

Good news for urbanites as Honda Big Wing has outlets in the major cities mentioned above. Of course now the choice boils down to what you are looking for in a sports bike.

With choices that range from naked bikes to full on top speed bikes, these made for speed and exhilaration bikes will never fail to put a smile on your face. Let’s face it, for the same price as a regular sedan, you get a lot of street cred that you will never get driving those sedans. Think of bikes like the CBR250, or if you like a naked bike, the CB650R all the way to the Fireblades of this world. And while your main intention might be for you just to get to the office and back, if an outstation trip beckons, just fill up the tank and you are on your way. Best way to enjoy all the clutch action is on the highways and long sweepers some rural towns are known for.



On Your Mark. Get Set…

Before you zip-up your Alpinestars jacket and grab your KYT helmet, maybe it’s time to schedule a visit to your nearest Honda Big Wing centre in Setapak, Petaling Jaya, Georgetown or JB to get better acquainted with your next Honda motorcycle.

Riding a highly powerful bike can be enormous fun but as usual do your due diligence, get it checked by Honda Big Wing’s team of experts whenever you feel somethings amiss. Your high revving piece of machinery could need some valve clearing or could be misfiring due to fouled plugs and of course who better to diagnose your issues then Honda Big Wing’s highly trained staff.

Don’t worry if it takes too much of your busy schedule, as they can provide same day service so that you can get back on your trusted steed as soon as possible. Big Wing members get 10% discount on original parts and service. If perhaps something does happen that is covered by your warranty just get it claimed too.
