News: SUZUKI OFFERS POUND-SAVING PRACTICAL SCOOTERING

Here’s the latest commuter news regarding Suzuki’s congestion-busting and fuel efficient Address scooter as it’s now available with low rate 3% finance over three years, with a minimum £300 deposit.

Suzuki have shared the following regarding their Address scooter with MotorMartin recently: Achieving over 130mpg is easy on the 113cc A1 licence-friendly machine, meaning over 150 miles between fill-ups with its 5.2 litre fuel tank. Zipping around town is also easy thanks to a slim design and light weight, yet there is over 20 litres of storage for excellent practicality. A full-face helmet can be conveniently accommodated under the seat, while two pockets up front provide additional storage. Security is also bolstered with a magnetic ignition cover.

In addition, the Address also comes with one year’s free road side assistance, Datatag MASTER security system and 3 year warranty as standard from Suzuki, and can also be ridden on L-plate with a valid CBT certificate.

The low rate 3% finance offer, available until 31 March 2019, means you can save time, spend less and smile more with the Address for £54.44 per month with the minimum £300 deposit and no end of term final payment.

News: NEWBIE RIDERS: TIPS FROM IAM ROADSMART

As a lover of all things motoring it was a surprise that MotorCycle news articles were not present from the start of MotorMartin and yet, like the two wheeled content of the MotorMartin garage, two wheeled news is increasing at quite some pace. One such news article that arrived recently up on the top floor of MotorMartin Towers was especially important if you’re a new member of the two wheeled family.

After getting a motorcycle licence things can sometimes spiral out of control if you are not careful; from the costs of the bike to the actual kit. The one thing that remains priceless and you do not want to risk is your life. This week’s tips give advice to new riders from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards, Richard Gladman and are well worth reading.

Get the right gear. British weather changes very quickly and you can often find yourself wet, cold or hot which isn’t ideal. Invest in a four-season kit and keep an eye out for the weather. Invest in the best rated crash helmet you can afford and don’t be tempted by unknown second hand ‘bargains’

No headphones. The temptation to listen to music whilst riding will always be there but it is important to hear what is going on around you. You need to be aware of other traffic and other road users for your safety, and in this day and age – security

Sat-nav is becoming commonplace on touring bikes now but be aware that it still poses a distraction threat; the screens tend to be small and in sunshine or rain can be hard to see. It helps to have an idea where you are heading and if you are unsure, pull over safely to check

Keep it safe. We recommend locking your bike on something that is fixed and not moveable. If your bike is to be kept outside and you have a suitable area consider fitting a ground anchor to lock it to. Even a really expensive lock is cheaper than replacing your bike 

Remember that maintenance is key. Whatever your riding plans, commuting in winter or touring the countryside during summer, regularly cleaning and servicing your bike will help keep it in good condition and allow you to spot any potential problems early on

Richard shared with MotorMartin recently that: “Choosing the right bike is vital. Do you really need a big tourer or a superfast sports bike for the daily commute? Take a little time and advice from a good dealer to make sure you choose the bike that’s right for your level of skill, experience and budget.”

Wise words and ones which for all are well worth taking note of and following.
