Cost to own car vs motorcycle

I know smart ass will probably say cost... your life. Ok got it.

So what is the cost of comparison from a car to a motorcycle exclude parking. Title, licence, insurance, car check......

Insurance is cheap 5-8000 per year, check ups are neglible. But cars are relatively more expensive than the US (about double) and license plates are hard to come by (long waitlist and ~150,000).

Motorcycles are relatively affordable, even nice Ducatis can be had for 70-80k, but license again is about the same as cars. You could try to get by with a "C" license. Officially only recognized for travelling around Pudong, but most people get by riding around Puxi as well (police rarely give a ****). License for C (~30,000), regular A license plate more than 100,000 (I think 130,000 last I checked).

Hi there, it depends upon which bike or car you have.
