Bangladesh Honda Pvt Ltd (BHL) is giving away FREE REGISTRATION OFFER with the purchase of every Honda Wave Alpha from their respective dealers point in Bangladesh.
Honda Wave Alpha is a moped or cub motorcycle which was based on the most famous Honda motorcycle of all time, Honda CUB 50. It was launched on March last year & was given to BikeBD for long time test ride review. We published a full on Test Ride Review of Honda Wave Alpha on our website.
Wave Alpha comes in Bangladesh from Vietnam in CBU (Complete Build Unit) condition. It is a very popular bike in Vietnam. It is a motorbike for all age riders. It is small and nimble and easy to ride in huge traffic city like Dhaka & Chittagong.
Though it is a small bike but the engine is a masterpiece, with auto clutch to assist the 4 speed gearbox the engine produces 6.8 BHP & 7 NM of torque and because the bike weighs 98 kg & have very thin tires it accelerates from 0-80 km/h faster than many 125cc motorcycles.
The brakes are good for riding under 80 km/h, one of the biggest strength of the bike is the engine braking, due to auto clutch it is very effective. Build quality of the bike is fantastic but the biggest complain I have it the fuel tank, which only holds 3.5 litre which isn’t enough if you are thinking to ride on the highway. Also due to low ground clearance the under belly hits on big speed breakers.
Motorcycle registration is compulsory these days & the cost of registration in Bangladesh is very high compare to other countries. To make Wave Alpha affordable to the bikers in Bangladesh BHL are giving away FREE RIGISTRATION OFFER with the purchase of every Honda Wave Alpha.
So in general you are saving around 19,000 BDT (Only Bank Deposit for the free registration is the FREE OFFER, extra service charge is not included it needed to be paid by the buyer itself) for the purchase of Wave Alpha.
In most countries the bikers buy the motorcycle and after registration they bring it out from the showroom, a practice which should come forward in Bangladesh motorcycle industry as well. Hope that this initiative of BHL for giving Free Registration Offer with the purchase of a Honda Wave Alpha is the start of regulation.
