Power bikes are favoured for their great mobility and affordable prices. In this post, we present comprehensive lists of prices of power bikes in Nigeria, covering the most popular models in Nigerian market.

1. Why power bikes?

Admittedly, when put next to motorbikes, cars seem to be more useful with their spacious room for both passengers and cargo. However, their price tags do not suit budgets of all. And sometimes when their bulky bodies get stuck in shabby, narrow Nigerian lanes and corners, you realize you need something more compact and flexible. That’s why power bikes or sports bikes are here to stay.

Since one of the pioneers in this vehicle line appeared – Honda CB750, power bikes were soon associated with bold youngsters for their expressive appearances (you might check naked bikes or streetfighter versions). Its formidable speed compared to other kinds of motorcycles also adds up the formation of this norm. Hardly might one think he would buy a power bike for family transport but that scenario is commonly seen now.

Give it a try and your family members may fall in love with it from the very first ride!

If you are a “speedoholic” or want to fully enjoy the nature, there’s no reason why you miss out this motorcycling technology. Rev up to 300 km/h, let the wind glace through hair while manoeuvring over the crowds. That’s a one-off experience no automobiles can offer.

Power bikes also have a vast range of options from mainstream products to supersport bikes (aka superbike, hypersport and hyperbike), catering for your personal style and requirements regarding pricing or specifications. Sport bikes from Yamaha Motor Company, Kawasaki, Ducati, BMW, Honda or Harley-Davidson can all be found in Nigerian market. However, some can be acquired brand new like Ducati Superbike while others (eg: Suzuki GSRX series) are available in Tokunbo or locally used units. For those who have serious intention of acquiring one of these dynamic vehicles and are looking for prices of power bikes in Nigeria, read on, because this article is for you.

3. Comments on the utility of power bikes in Nigeria

Thanks to its minimized design with just only 2 wheels and no frills nor luxury equipment like in cars, the lightweight frame of power bike greatly facilitates rush trips, flexibly moving through traffic crowds or unfavourable terrains. It is the mobility and flexibility of power bike that makes it popular in our nation.

One more thing is about its speed limit. As there aren’t official laws related to speed limit or safety of riding power bike in the country, adventurous drivers might challenge their own boundaries while running their motorcycle.

Regarding its strength, power bike adopts two-stroke or four-stroke combustion engine options, in which the latest Lid cooled Revolution X™ V-Twin engine from renowned Harley Davidson Power Bike can produce up to 29.5 FT-LB engine torque.

3.1. Collection of praises for power bike

  • Incredible speed: As mentioned before, a power bike can reach 300 km/h, no less than top speed of some cars in local market. You may easily see Hollywood actors driving a sport bike as fast as hell with jaw-dropping lean angles to travel through a crowded street but everything is totally under control.

  • Durability: It’s undeniable that power bike is among the most durable vehicles for roads in Nigeria. Even the earliest forms of sport bike were designed with carbon fiber, let alone tuning versions of modern models. No matter what weather conditions or tough challenges on the route, this two wheeler can successfully drive its owner through.
  • Performance efficiency: Having a power bike definitely costs you less than having a car as it has higher fuel mileage. These motorcycles can also travel miles within a similar amount of time.
  • Safe choice for adventurers: Paradoxically, power bike is meant to be adventurers’ companion as its mobility can bring you to the furthest end of the Earth. However, its possibility of accidents is very low as it possesses an amazingly balanced frame. Also, the combination of specialized suspension and effective braking systems (disc brakes/ radial calipers) can guarantee safe and sound operation even on rough tracks.

3.2. Summary of concerns around power bike

Due to its distinctive features, power bike is not suitable for some classes. First, though most power bikes are cheaper than cars, some reputable ones cost much higher than their 4-wheeled counterparts. Second, riding power bike looks great for small-sized family only, maybe just 2 to 3 members at best. You surely don’t want an overloaded ride of 4 or more people on a bike, right? The last thing that makes some frown upon buying a power bike is its limited stores for bike components. Once a part gets troubles, it’s quite hard to replace it with a new one in the vicinity of your commune.

Given all the possible drawbacks, power bike has impressive durability. And you don’t need to worry that much about the repair shops which are omnipresent throughout the country. Make sure you know how to drive and how to care for your two-wheel motor vehicles, everything will stay above right!
