" Backpacking by motorbike has now become an even hotter trend among the young community. With just a motorbike and compact backpack, you can go everywhere, explore many parts of the country. To have a perfect motorbike ride, you need to prepare more. Firstly, you need to understand about choosing best adventure motorcycles for beginners.

What kind of motorcycles should you choose when travelling?

In terms of vehicle types, there are 3 most popular types of vehicles such as scooters, gear motorbikes and clutches. With gas vehicles, you will be convenient in arranging luggage as this vehicle is large in size. However, the downside is the ability to climb a low hill, not be proactive in increasing or decreasing the number of vehicles. If unfortunately, it is damaged on the way, the repair faces many difficulties and the cost is often quite high.
The second type of vehicle is a geared vehicle. This type of vehicle gives you the flexibility to increase or decrease the number of vehicles when needed, making repairs simpler. However, the gear vehicle has a small trunk or a motorbike without a trunk. The lights of this type depend heavily on battery power, so the gaslight is strong to light up. In difficult roads, requiring light, the strong station can not do as desired. This is what the throttle has more advantages because the lights are always on.

As for the clutch, as the name implies, the increase or decrease in the number of cars is controlled by the clutch. The advantage of having a clutch motorbike is the large fuel tank, which can store more gasoline than other vehicles. However, instead of a clutch, the motorbike consumed a lot of gasoline, so it could have been equivalent. In addition, tapered motorcycles usually have no trunk or small trunk. You will have to carry extra bags and to drive this vehicle, you need to familiarize yourself with some complex techniques to handle situations on the road.

Choosing the best adventure motorcycles for beginners

The popular, easy-to-drive motorbikes like Wave, Future, Dream, Sirius, ... are the motorcycles that are rated as the best backpackers. Because spare parts are easy to find, easy to repair even you can fix them yourself. At the same time, these motorbikes also have low consumption of gasoline, which is very beneficial during the trip, helping you to save costs and save time to stop the motorbike to recharge it.
In addition, there are also a number of cross-road motorcycles that have been trusted by the riders to choose such as Minsk, Honda Win 100, Yamaha ... These are mostly "old" models, the advantage of being able to adapt with complex types of terrain. To be able to travel on these vehicles, you need to learn the basic skills or lessons to be able to repair yourself.

A few notes before starting the motorbike excursion

- Before starting the trip, you need to check carefully. Pay special attention to the brakes and tires as these are very important parts during the journey. Motorbikes must have 2 mirrors. The helmet you wear during the journey should be of good quality.
- To deal with situations that occur along the way, you should prepare some necessary items such as raincoats, basic motorbike repair tools, protective gear, ... Remember to bring your vehicle certificate, driver's license and other documents needed to use during the trip.

so there should be no more work or tooling involved basically.
Bent steel tube in the case of trellis, and welded pressed forms in the case of aluminium for the most part AFAIK.
Machine finishing a cast would certainly be more work than welding up a frame. You can cast the main housings readily enough, but then there's all the tooling operations required to clean mating faces, cut gasket beds, drill and tap bolt holes... the list goes on.

Again, as I'm thinking about it now though - if those steps aren't being performed in the manufacturing of a traditional engine, then the capacity to is still there as it would likely still be less work than machine finishing engine block castings. "

Oh
ok- you were reffering to the scooter.
Agree with you on that.

Very different load profiles between scooter and streetbike performance.

I'd be concerned that the proposed 'chassis' design would be overly stiff - granted we're unlikely to be pushing them to superbike levels but a certain bit of flex is still desirable (The original SP2 proved that point quite well).

Substantially less work involved in bending and welding extrusion or tube, than there is in finishing cast components.
That being said, and now that I'm thinking about it, Nissan's EV drivetrain is entirely built into cast enclosures so if they were going to go that route anyway then, yeah maybe there's a reasonable 'why not?' in there alright. "

A 4 piece battery box vs. a 4 piece frame ( 2 inside welded to 2 outside frame parts). Everything else is same on any bike, attache headstock, forks,engine,swing incl. backwheel and dampers, seat and fairing...
Ok integration of battery, charger and controller etc might be a little more fiddly but batteries usually need boxing up anyway.
Just wondering where you see the difference.

Ok- it would be expensive for sure, simply because it would be made by bmw but other than that?

There is a video of the C-Evolution being manufactured in BMW's plant floating around. The aluminum casting that encloses the battery pack seems very complex to me and the construction of its power train looks heavily automated. It just looks a lot more costly to build for a low-volume vehicle than bolting stuff onto a steel tube frame, as BMW does with some of their other motorcycles like the new F850/750 models.

In the video I was very impressed watching the robots do their thing when building up the scooter's aluminum box chassis. Then it occurred to me: I wonder how you could get to those batteries inside their welded-up box if you ever wanted to replace on of the modules? But I agree that it seems to be a good structural design as long as you don't have to ever get into that battery cage. "

" Cute, but the last thing I heard about Elon and motorcycles was that he thought they were a device of the Devil and said that he would never have anything to do with them.

My guess is that he probably wouldn't even use one as ballast in his next big new rocket test flight. "
