2, the body color affects the temperature

The summer motorcycle has experienced a long time of exposure, the gasoline in the tank of the black motorcycle is more likely to volatilize to the carbon tank, which is easy to cause the vehicle to start badly, and many owners have encountered similar failures.

In the summer, wearing light clothes will feel cooler than wearing dark clothes, so the same principle applies to motorcycles. A team has done a professional test: After several different colors of the same model are exposed to the sun for an hour, the temperature of the tank cap position of these vehicles is measured with an infrared thermometer. The test results show that the green body is 40.2 ° C, the pure white body temperature is 41.7 ° C, the silver body is 46.7 ° C, the red body is 48.6 ° C, and the highest temperature of the black body is 49.8 ° C! Of course, this result varies with the amount of gasoline in the tank.

So it seems that light-colored motorcycles are more resistant to summer.
