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.

If you want to learn more about what it’s like to own a Direct Bikes scooter and ride it day in and day out, read our rider reviews to get a real insight into Direct Bikes ownership.

Direct Bikes VIPER DB125T-32
The bracket that holds the front mud guard on the bike sheard off and had to have it welded back together. Since day one going over bumps makes a huge rattling sound... The bracket that holds the front mud guard on the bike sheard off and had to have it welded back together. Since day one going over bumps makes a huge rattling sound somewhere located on the front end of the bike and the most dangerous thing is that the actual head lights randomly turn off and either by switching indicators on or high beam it turns the lights back on but apart from that it's a nifty little Chinese bike done around 2000 miles as it's used every day top spead have gotten 70 but never again mind you. Overall it's a great first bike for my son
