Best Delivery Bikes To Use In Nigeria
If your clients or customers live in areas with poor road networks, a motorcycle will likely arrive in record time and deliver the package.
We don’t need a prophet to tell us that a dispatch business will suffer without good motorcycles. A good motorcycle contributes significantly to the quality of your delivery process because it ensures that customers receive the package or service they requested.
To maintain a good reputation, a dispatch company must invest in the right motorcycles for its dispatch riders. Here are the best motorcycles for dispatch riders in Nigeria:
- Price – ₦450,000 to ₦700,000
Sinoki Supra is widely used by dispatch riders in places like Lagos. This is because the task force will not bother you if they see you riding a Sinoki Supra. The Lagos State Government has recommended a 200cc bike for dispatch work, which a Sinoki Supra perfectly fits.
The Sinoki Supra is powered by a 200cc V4 engine that produces 425 kW; 570 hp at 9,000 rpm (redline) and 540 Nm of torque. Because fuel consumption is low, you won’t have to worry about spending too much money on gas as a dispatch rider.
Qlink Legend 250
- Price – ₦400,000 to ₦800,000
The Qlink legend 250 is one of Qlink’s most popular motorcycles, and it’s ideal for delivery services. The Qlink Legend 250 is ideal for dispatch riders due to its ease of handling and manoeuvrability. It also has excellent fuel economy.
This bike is powered by a 200cc single cylinder, four-stroke valve engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission capable of producing 14.70hp. The customized motorcycle is also liquid cooled and has a fully automatic CVT transmission. The bike has front and rear disc brakes, as opposed to the drum brakes found on other bikes in its class.
Dispatch riders are not required to be bored while driving. They can take advantage of some technological features with the Legacy 250, such as an integrated audio system with FM radio and a USB port. The USB port, which is located under the seat, allows the rider to play downloaded music on an iPod, MP3 player, or memory stick. The audio system controls are located beneath the handlebars.
Honda CB 125
- Price – ₦480,000 – ₦750,000
The Honda CB 125 is one of the most convenient bikes for commuting. The CB is simple and lightweight, with seating for two. It is also simple to maintain and handle. The bike has excellent dexterity for manoeuvring through tight intersections during traffic jams and is extremely stable on the road, making it an excellent choice for dispatch riders.
The model is available with both front and rear disc brakes. The tank capacity is approximately 13.5 litres, with an average fuel consumption of 95mpg.

The Yamaha AG200 possesses qualities such as resilience and dependability, which are required for a successful delivery. You don’t want your bike to become stuck on the road for reasons you don’t understand. The motorcycle must be resilient, especially when a dispatch rider must traverse rough terrain.
This superbike has a powerful 4-stroke engine with a single cylinder. The chassis has an upgraded telescopic fork front suspension system and an additional front drum brake.
As previously stated, the type of motorcycle you use will determine the quality of your dispatch business. If you cannot afford to purchase a brand new motorcycle, the Tokunbo models of the motorcycles mentioned above are a good fit to make you comfortable and help your dispatch business thrive.
Alternatively, if you can’t afford a bike, Kwik runs a KEEP (Kwik Entrepreneurial Empowerment Program) service where we give you bikes to kickstart your dispatch journey and the bikes become yours after 1 year of service.
