Buying Motorcycles in Singapore Tips and Myths (Interview with Reezal)



Purchasing Motorcycles in Singapore can be sometimes confusing to some and there are also myths going around. In this video, Reezal and I will talk and share about loans more in depth and to let you understand what you are going for. This video is meant for educational purpose only and it is not meant to discredit any business or people. Do also note that the COE we shared in the video is on that amount at the time of the filming. COE price will vary depending on when you view this video.

Apologies for the amount error in the aftermarket exhaust amount after interest part. It is $1360 not $1450.

  1. You missed out another loan type that many people might not be familiar with, is credit union loans. A bit like bank loan, but if you are already a member of certain unions, the interest rate might be better, with better terms.

  2. Also some shops will charge u for a high early settlement fee that wouldn’t make financial sense. Then u will have trouble selling your bike 😬 unless u ask someone to COI which is another risk all together.

    If not u will be “force” to “trade in” your bike at the same shop in order to upgrade and repeat this loan process all over again. 🙃 forever locked in…
