    Assalam u alaiqum!
    Can anybody give me the feedback of Suzuki gs 150 about its performance,mileage,parts availability and maintenance cost etc.i just need a rough estimate as i totally rely on a bike for travelling.

    I have a honda Cd 200 Road master but now i need a change so what would be the better choice in bike?
    I need a bike who should be fast enough though in pak usually bike above 200cc are hell expensive to cant think about these sports bike ryt nw.
    I had a CG125,CD70,CD100 in past so what do u guyz suggest to opt for amongst the following

    2.Suzuki GS 150
    3.Suzuki GS 125

    Is it really worth buying Suzuki over Roadmaster cd 200?

    your advise will be appreciated.

    Buddy GS150 is a good book with good petrol average. There are some members who can guide in this perspective. However according to me the bike is comfortable and suitable for long trips, the only issue that it faces is braking. Otherwise good bike

    Yes, the company fitted rear tire is not as good as it should be. It is because of government restriction that all motorcycle manufacturers in Pakistan should use as much of Pakistani parts as possible.

    But after you purchase the bike, buy imported tires yourself and exchange your tire with that and pay some money. You need a tire like this..

    Buddy you have to install disk brakes for the purpose and for that you have to firstly install alloy rims which will cost you around 12k and further 4,5 K for disk brake.

    Oh! means i will have to spend around 17k to just solve this brake issue.
    i have not taken a ride of it so its brake are really useless or it can somehow be made useful?
    I have been riding for around 9 years on karachi streets and have kept CG,Roadmaster so even then it would be difficult to handle this bike in terms of brake?
    I cant spend 17k on this bike so whats the JUGAR ?

    Braking is not as much bad. Its good. Even a jugar may cost you around 5-6K. The braking is bad in terms you are riding at speed of about 90+. Otherwise you its good

    yes brakes are bad when the bike needs sudden braking at 90km/hr or more .else they are fine. no need to install alloys coz they are quite expensive.u can get rx115 disk brake and hub and get it installed with the spokes.This is the most sasta option which even im planning to do

    it looks that gs150's brakes are good only if u ride below 80 km/hr,, so if u think u wont be going fast then this on roads which needs immediate braking then go for it,,
    it is not just that it has drum brakes and they r unreliable,, its only that it has narrow windowof saf operation inn certain situations,,,

    and btw i would recomend u to look at other alternatives,, either cg deluxe or piaggio,, which has a lot of goodies such as self start(sulf start,, hahahaahahaha),disc brakes...

    well i had a CG in past and as i have told right now i have Honda raodmaster so who opts for Delux over Roadmaster?
    I need a brand change.I am confused between ravi piaggio and suzuki gs150 but i dont go for look.i am more intrested in power,comfort and reliability along with less maintenance.
    i am more leaned to buy a suzuki gs150 now after reading positive responses.

    apart from petty issues with both there is no major issue with them,,gs had cdi issue,,
    and gs has been in local market for quite a long time,, its good bike and has much better carb,,

    if u want power gs isthe weay,, at least engine,chasis will not give any problem for a very long time,,,

    had i been u ,, i would have gone for it,,
    initially i wanted to buy it myself in 2009 but again i had to use it a lot and due to fuel prices i settled on 70cc chonda, my bike had to had to travel more then 70 km back then daily,,so a 70cc was a nice option,, fuel was above 85 rs to a litre back then..

    Exactly the same case with me. I wanted to buy it back in 2009 but due to extensive traveling (70km daily), I chose Suzuki Sprinter Standard (110cc) which is also a fantastic bike in terms of mileage and strong body and chases.

    Now last month, I sold that Sprinter to a colleague of mine and bought myself a GS 150. It is awesome.
    Braking is not a total failure, it works.. pretty good at daily commuting speeds (up to 90kmph). Even at higher speeds, if you use a combination of front and rear brakes, you'll have a reasonably good control over it.

    I have still not installed Disk Brakes, just changed tires (it costed me Rs. 6,000/- to change both tires) and brake performance has increased pretty much.

    lalay its not a matter of ifs and buts .. u must use both front and rear brakes.. guess what.. front brake provides 70 % of brakiing power and rear brake only 30 %.. and thats reason that if a bike ever had to have a disc brakes it must be front.. never seen a bike with front drum rear disc..
    because disc brakes provides much better grip...

    and this is contrary to peddle cycle braking rules..

    and above all the front brake pad of drum brakes out last the rear breaks by three times.. i.e. for every three changes of rear brake pad front needs only one change..

    100% True! Although, it is a trend here, people avoid pressing the front brake, instead they press the whole bike against whatever comes ahead..

    That too is true. It is said, that pulling is easier than pushing. when you apply rear brakes, momentum of the motorcycle and rider pulls ahead the rear tire hence brake is less effective.
    Whereas, when front brake is applied, the momentum of the motorcycle and the rider has to push against the front wheel, tough thing to do.. ehh..

    Take good care of your front brakes. Keep them tight..

    if you want style, power and comfort with good fuel economy then you should defiantly for GS-150. Brakes are pretty good if applied using both brakes i.e. front and rear. no need to care about engine at least about 03 ~ 04 years if properly lubricated. aur kya chahyay?????
