Why choose Direct Bikes?

Direct Bikes may not be one of the most famous names in two-wheels but it is a surprising bestseller in the UK, with more scooter registrations than any other manufacturer.

As ever, that translates into lots of quotes for Direct Bikes scooters on The Bike Insurer.

Direct Bikes’ success

The reason for Direct Bikes’ success is not complicated with the brand’s extremely low list prices for its scooters, as well as a delivery service that sees your new scooter get delivered to your door, its major selling points.

Scooter riders are generally young, with low capacity two wheelers extremely popular with 16-year-olds and those new to the road.

And with 16-year-olds not being famed for their large bank accounts, the business model is one that’s worked for the brand since it launched (something that’s helped by the fact that Direct Bikes are also cheap to insure as well).

Direct Bikes deals exclusively with 125cc or 50cc models, ranging from typical sporty-looking scooters to other more retro, Italian-inspired models.

Direct Bikes RETRO DB50QT-A
I am very pleased overall with the bike particularly storage capacity (along with the top box) very well made and appearance. The only downsides are the speedometer... I am very pleased overall with the bike particularly storage capacity (along with the top box) very well made and appearance. The only downsides are the speedometer being in kilometres and the poor quality of the screen's fixing nuts chrome which is rusting. Having to register the bike was a bit of a pain but all the information was there to be found and the price made it all worthwhile.
