To own a motorcycle (Versys) where I live it will cost you annually:
(If you average about 10,000km per year.)
- Registration and mandatory 3rd party insurance: 300e (+15e for green cart)
- One set of tires: 200-250e
- Two oil changes: 50e X2
- 450-500l of fuel = 600-700e
To put that in some perspective that is around 3,7 average monthly paychecks or 5.2 monthly rents for small family apartment.
Or to put it bluntly - it's bloody expensive!
Bikes are also more expensive to buy (used or new), more fragile, have more frequent service intervals, more expensive parts and more expensive workshops. There is also motorcyclist gear witch is expensive.
I'd like to know how is it in other parts of the world on a personal level.
