I have put feelers out there, but as of yet, I don’t have any solid leads on obtaining a motorcycle. But as you know from my Motorcycle Gas Mileage article, not only can you save a lot of money getting a motorcycle, but you learned how highly I esteem the Honda brand of vehicles (that was thrown in here for free ).
|Motorcycle Gas Mileage Payback Calculation|
|Price Per Gallon of Gas||$4.00|
|Your Current Car/Truck Gas Mileage||25|
|Your Prospective Motorcycle’s Gas Mileage||60|
|Your Average Miles Driven Per Month||1,000|
|Automatic Calculation Area|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 6 Month Payback||$560.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 1 Year Payback||$1,120.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 1.5 Year Payback||$1,680.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 2 Year Payback||$2,240.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 2.5 Year Payback||$2,800.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 3 Year Payback||$3,360.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 3.5 Year Payback||$3,920.00|
|Price of the Motorcycle for 4 Year Payback||$4,480.00|
So given the default values, if you spend $560 for your motorcycle, the gas savings that you will receive will pay for your motorcycle in just 6 months! If you spend $1,120 on your motorcycle, it will be paid back in gas savings in just 1 year, and so on.
I came up with this example in order to see what the top price would be that I could spend in order to get paid back around 6 months to a year.
