5 essential motorcycle upgrades


The rise in numbers of motorcycles on the road has been continuous since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only deemed convenient, motorcycles are also considered, reliable, practical, and safe especially in this time of pandemic.

With more motorcycles on the roads, some owners are urged to make their motorcycle standout by customizing their bike’s appearance and performance. Correctly modifying a motorcycle will not only make it more personalized, this will also improve a bike’s riding experience

Guiding you to some of the essential mods you can do to your motorcycle, Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) listed some of the essential motorcycle modifications that would make your riding experience better, safer, and more convenient.

LED Lights. One of the reasons why most people hesitate to ride motorcycles is because riding such small and quick vehicles can be dangerous, especially in the dark. LED lights bring outstanding illumination rivaling even that of cars. It has broader and brighter beams, which helps other vehicles be aware of your presence on the road.

Anti-Theft Alarms. You can have numerous ways to protect your motorcycle from theft, like using chains to secure the wheels or attaching a disc lock on the front brake disc to lock brake and throttle controls. However, motorcycle thieves are still equipped with the right equipment to crack these security measures. Try installing an anti-theft alarm on your motorcycle so that your bike is safer from theft. 

Utility Box. Yes, your motorcycle already has a bag hook and trunk space to carry your belongings. However, these may not always accommodate your needs. Installing utility boxes on your bike will address your storage problems and may even do away with the need to carry anything on your person! These boxes come in different sizes that allow you to carry small items to even something as big as a full-sized helmet.

Brake Mods. You can only go as fast or slow as your brakes allow you. Suppose your motorcycle can accelerate as quickly as a moving train but cannot slow down fast enough without catapulting you through the air? Always check if your motorcycle’s stock brakes are adequate to allow the right acceleration and deceleration for better safety and peace of mind.

Suspension Mods. Suspensions are the foundation of a vehicle’s performance, even on motorcycles. These come in different types depending on the riding style and the terrain the bike drives on. Finding the right suspension for your motorcycle drive will significantly improve its riding comfort as well as its safety and security on the road.

Looking for shops that will help you modify your motorcycle to have these essentials can take time and might be expensive for your budget, but these mods’ benefits will be worth it.

But some motorcycles come with these essentials right out of the factory.
