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.

The windscreen attachment arrived with a huge scratch across it. It meant you could not see through it. The wing mirrors snapped when I tried to screw it onto the scooter and then the screw broke when trying to screw the mirror on. The broken screw then got stuck inside the nook and I had to take it to a bike store for them to drill it out. No spare screws were provided so i had to purchase new ones.

What is even worse is that i contacted the seller to request for replacement parts (windscreen, mirrors, screws) and they made me send them photos as proof. After i sent the photos of the damaged goods (which they couldn't deny) they ignored my emails for two weeks and then finally said they would not replace the damaged goods as the windscreen was only a freeby and I on signing for delivery was accepting all accountability of goods (damaged or not). They then said as a goodwill gesture they would send new screws (which never arrived). I tried to contact them several times thereafter by email (it is not possible to contact anyone by telephone or in person) and they plainly stopped responding to my emails.

I have had my scooter for almost 1 1/2 years and not ridden it once (catching cobwebbs in the garage). It was the worse product, worst service, and the company seems to be extremely dodgy.
