Be seen! What should Singapore motorcyclists be wearing? Find out.
At Budget Direct Insurance we like to focus on money-saving tips. But when it comes to motorcycle gear we decided that it’s okay to splurge a little when it comes to combining style and safety.
Here we have teamed up with Motoworld and Motorwerks to bring you the latest, coolest gear to keep you looking sensational on Singapore’s roads.
Here are our top picks.
Selection from Motoworld
You get what you pay for. And our advice is never scrimp on the helmet. The RPHA 90 is said to be one of the most compact modular motorcycle helmets in the world. It’s not just good-looking, it's plush on the inside too which makes it extra comfortable for long distance riding. If you’ve had it in the neck with heavy, bulky modular helmets, then check this one out as it’s the lightest modular in the premium helmet class. Price: $550
Want to look good on AND off the bike? This one’s for you. Sporty features combined with classic style. It also offers great protection and ventilation to keep you not only looking cool but feeling cool. Perfect for Singapore motorbikers. It’s a bit pricey at $210 but its timeless appeal and quality fabric will last you a lifetime.
These waterproof boots are great come rain or shine and will keep you dry and cosy even in one of Singapore’s worst torrential downpours. They look very heroic too. The accompanying press release describes them as boots that “will undoubtedly make you feel like a fireman who just ‘untreed’ a litter of kittens in Hugh Hefner's yard.” Whaaaat? If that doesn’t do it for you nothing will! They come at a sturdy price of $300
These are said to be ultra-comfortable whilst at the same time offering lots of protection. The fabric combines strength and stretch particularly at the knee area where it also contracts depending on your movement. Reflective prints increase your visibility. Its casual street style means you can use for everyday wear while it functions as your riding protection. Price: $160
