Although purchasing a bike is easy but maintaining it is not. You need to take care of it properly. You need to keep a check on engine oil, greasing the chains and keep its body from getting rusted. Apart from this if you are willing to invest in your bike more then you can invest in making it smart and eco-friendly. Some basic changes and your bike will become smarter. So, here are some ways that can make your bike smarter and more eco-friendly.
Install Mobile Holder
Installing a mobile holder on your bike’s handle can be very beneficial for you. Since everybody has a smart phone, you can start the map on your phone that would navigate you to your destination without any miss direction. The navigation on your mobile phone also tells you the direction that has lesser traffic that can save your time as well as fuel.
Since the mobile phone is mounted on the holder and you won’t be breaking any law that would attract legal action against you. You can purchase the mobile holder online as well as offline and mount it yourself.
Get Bike’s Emission Checked
Bikes run on petrol and release harmful gas that affects our environment. So, it is important that you get your bike’s emissions checked regularly. If you found your bike’s emission crossing the permissible limit then you can get the exhaust pipe cleaned and get the engine tuned. It is also advised that you keep checking for the mobile oil as well as a spark plug that can help in reducing the emission.
Like this, you can help in keeping the environment clean and your bike in good condition. Ride the bike at the allowed speed limit, if you drive aggressively then your bike not only consumes more fuel but also won’t be able to stay in a good condition and you will have to take your bike to the garage every other day.
Smart Grips for Handle Bar
This is one of the most amazing accessories for a bike. You can install smart grips on your handle-bars that can get synced with your mobile and GPS through Bluetooth. So whenever there is a turn coming up, the grip on that particular side will start to vibrate and tell you which way you need to turn.
This way you won’t have to look down at your mobile phone again and again to keep a track of direction.
Bike Performance App
There are many bike manufacturers out there selling smart bikes as well as have mobile applications that you can install. The app will provide you the information regarding the bike’s performance, fuel consumption, next servicing due date and when to get your pollution under control certificate. This helps you to stay informed as well as keep the bike in good condition.
If you own a bike then you must be aware of the motor vehicle act that makes it mandatory for you to at least have a third-party liability insurance policy. Since this plan only provides cover to the third-party in case of an accident, you can purchase a comprehensive insurance policy that can provide you overall cover in case you or your bike sustain any damage or loss. Purchasing a two-wheeler insurance policy can be very beneficial for you.
If you have a bike then it comes with duty as well, a duty to keep it in good condition that directly affects the environment. If you do not keep your bike in good condition then it will harm the environment and if you do then you are doing your part in keeping the environment cleaner and healthier. Since it is necessary for you to keep your bike insured, it is advised that you purchase the policy online because it is cost effective than purchasing it offline. You can also compare different plans as well as calculate the premium rates of the plan using online premium calculator.
