    We are moving to Malta this month, and I want to get a bike over there.

    I've taken a shine to the cb300r honda. I think it looks great, the engine is plenty for an urban runabout and Malta is only 20km from ocean to ocean anyway.



    But... There's none secondhand yet and 5,995€ (registration tax is apparently pretty high so new and used vehicles are expensive) is a lot to spend on a 300, and if the roads are as badly potholed as I hear, I finger it may not be the right key for the lock.

    This sounds like the badger... But they aren't exactly pretty.

    What bike do I need? / recommend me your bike.

    Nothing over 650cc, nothing that you can't find for less than 6,000€ on www.maltapark.com

    Eww, 2t

    Not gonna lie, a Grom has crossed my mind at least twice. Good news is they don't have any MOT/inspections for bikes so mods is a free for all. MSX181 4v anyone?

    Unless you're going somewhere quiet, driving is bloody dangerous in Malta these days Last time I didn't bother with a car we just caught the bus everywhere
    The roads are awful, gridlocked and its every man for himself when it gets busy

    I'd get the bus for a while until you see what the traffic is like. Sometime its OK but around Silema and Valleta it can get pretty snarled up at peak times
    (the buses are good and go everywhere, plus they have aircon when its too hot to ride)

    Dont get me wrong, I love the place but 2 years ago it was barely recognisable compared to 20 years ago

    Never been to Malta, but if it's like anywhere else on the med it's all Transalps and KLE500's.

    I like the Honda Neo Sports Cafe range, they've really gown on me and the 300 is quite smart.

    I think life is better if you stay out the brexit thread.

    What about one of those odd Honda external framed scootery type things? Zoomer?

    Added: Zoomer, yes. Any for sale in the link, no.

    If they did them as a 125+ maybe, but they only made a 50. I guess if you could find one you could fit a Chinese 180 scooter engine.
