    Default choice between storm 125 or gs 150????help needed

    Asalam o Aliaikum fellow pakwheelers
    ive been visiting this site for upto three years now as a guest ..i had an account but it got lost in translation....any who the members who regularly post here seem pretty decent and knowledgeable lot

    And i am in need of advice
    i want to buy a new motor bike ...and the two choices to which i have narrowed down to are the piaggio storm 125 and the suzuki gs 150

    Now here is where the confusion lurks ....although the piaggio is much more stylish and has disk brakes to add ..but ive read oof it having some chain noise problems and a few other defects....and the gs 150 has no disks and to add to that it looks like an antique in the mueseum also adding low quality of parts in the new model ...now this is all that ive hear d....please help me clarify and choose the better of the two

    your contributions will be greatly aprreciated.thanks

    Default hello

    go for storm all the way, it has few problems i agree but once chain is adjusted properly , it doesnt give any issue ,i have one , i was previously using gs 150 and switched to storm after selling it , it has a warranty of 10 months , and gs gives only 6 months, plus u will not find and difference of top speed or power btw storm and gs , and control of storm is far better than GS due to Disk brakes and wider tyres of rear 3.25 and front 2.75
    where as suzuki has rear of 3.00 and front of 2.75

    Go For Storm i am using this bike 1.5 year and it is giving very good performence no issue at all far more stable bike available in the market .its top speed is 120 to 130 if mentained properly and road grip is excelent, pick is also good. but dont forget to change the rear tyre with delux because it has no grip in rain and become very dangerous. but overall it is unbeatable

    I will suggest you to go for GS150. casue:-

    - Brand Name
    - Country wide acceptence
    - Resale (better then storm)
    - Comfortable to ride.

    Please keep in mind GS150 is not a racing mechine, its a crusing mechine with a smooth ride.

    Plus I hav'nt seen this Storm125 in Karachi -- why is that. Where as GS150 is seen all over Pakistan.

    Installing a Front Disc brake in GS is not a problem in Karachi, a few extra hundreds can get a disc on her.
    I am only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand..

    well Gs -150 dont have better resal4 than storm , i clearly know what u get when i went to sale my GS 150, they cant even give u the half price of the new one after two or three years
    where as storm is having far more better response in market. btw here are the pics of my bike

    there are a lot of service centres for piaggio in lhr and all over the country, plus spare parts of all type are availabe on local antenna shops and u also get a warranty of 10 months , or 10k kms

    Thanks for clarifying my friend....and Alhamdulilah your bikes in good shape...when it was new...hope its still in tip top form.....now im beginning to dread that the one that id ge may be red too....coz serioulsy yar weve got a lot of that color on oUR ROADs....and it isnt even healthy....scientifically its supposed to make you hyper ...maybe thats the reason the honda 125s cant keep their front wheels down.

    You are asking about two very different bikes, people can only tell you which one they like, not what you may want.

    Please be clear what kind of bike YOU want, tell us that and then ask the question.

    If resale is important to you, go for CD70.
