    just my 2 cents .... i hv kept 70cc for years and now i own deluxe 125 ... my daily running is around 32km and frankly speaking, i didn't find any drastic change in fuel expense ... i spent monthly around 1k more which is no big deal for that extra power and comfort ... so fuel consumption comparisons are just for mind satisfaction.... what u should keep in mind is that the bike u r buying should be comfortable, should hv good and cheap spare parts availability, which matters the most ... as they say haathi khareedna asaan hota hai paalna mushkil hota hai ...

    as u r in khi, i would recommend u honda pridor as its a quality product but has almost no resale here so its safe bet to buy .. otherwise any other new honda bike will gonna be theft sooner or later ...

    in suzuki u can go for sprinter or gs 150 but their spare parts are significantly expensive than others ..

    and there's no yamaha as for now ... don't fall in dyl trap ....
    Rise from the ashes,.....

    engine wise both are same only cosmetic changes ... and yes spare parts are expensive ..just read below a fellow member post to get the idea ...

Genuine timing chain of CD 70 is around 350 where as sprinter's around 950 - 1000 (genuine). Genuine ring piston is around 950 - 1000 where sprinter's (not very much sure) might be around 2000 - 2500 (genuine). And GS150 timing chain is around 1200 - 1300. CD70 indicator acha wala costs you around 60 Rs where sprinters cost you around 160 - 180.

    So parts are expensive. Nowadays, local, taiwan aur japanses (not genuine) parts are also available and they are much cheaper then genuine one but the life of these parts are also short.

    You might need to raise your budget till 55K to get a good condition bike any of them be it GS or CG. Buying a second hand GS is not an easy task and only a good mechanic can pick hidden weaknesses where as if CG has an hidden problem it can be rectified easily as compared to GS.

    Suzuki bikes for hardcore users , very Durable parts(But Expensive).
    If you are Going to buy Zero meter bike, therefore No tension for Maintenance.
    Suzuki Raider Is very Good average About 60+ km with Average speed 60-80km.

    If you DO NOT want frequent visits to mechanics then in my opinion Suzuki bikes are ahead. They need less maintanance. Only timely change of oil, oil filter and cleaning of air filter is required.

    Plus they are comfortable too as any other bike in 100cc category.

    Good thing is that genuine parts are available in market and user does not hassel in future and a peace of mind because of longer life or parts.

    I am a type of rider who does not want to go to mechanic every now and will be happy in buying genuine stuff sacrificing a few more bucks.

    yes, you are Right. Previously i've Sprinter for last 2 years and in these 2 years I've visited Mechanic only 2 times for Tunning Etc.
    And in these 2 years,i spend money on PETROL, OIL, BRACKSHOW & 2 Ball Bearing Only.

    bro its the regular maintenance which every bike requires
    that is nothing special to say about suzuki, will you explain how they require less maintenance?
    is there tuning interval or filter cleaning interval long as compare to other bikes

    When I had my 70cc (as per my experience) I had to visit my mechanic more frequently (as of now since I own sprinter and just to mention I always like my bike to be in a perfect condtion as any other bike lover);


    1. to reset carburetor mixture
    2. to re-adjust tappets
    3. to service brakes
    4. to check lose chain
    5. to level battery water after every 15 days
    6. clutch setting




    The above I have mentioned are in the light of my long running per day and in traffic jam where you need to ride in 1st and 2nd gear more often so more heating problem and bike ziada kaam nikalti hai.


    I own my sprinter for 4 months now and during this period nothing has been changed, same long running and even more traffic jam. During this period I tunned my bike only once, only get done once the above mentioned 6 points.


    I know only one thing that parts quality is far better thus much long life.

    I am sorry but i disagree here.

    Its not 'entirely' mind satisfaction.

    With fuel prices sky high, it is a huge concern for some people. Its especially a concern for people who are still in their student life. (me for instance)

    I travel about 55-60KMs daily and i have a CG-125. Because my journey consists of Long "High Speed" patches, fuel consumption is a major concern for me. (Because of High Speed, fuel consumption can increase drastically -- and my bike almost always stays upto 70-90KM/h range)

    From a 70cc to 125cc ... the Maintenance & Fuel Consumption is almost DOUBLE.

    - While a 70cc can do upto 55KMs easily (even in rough conditions) ... a 125cc can barely do 40KM/L. (which in worse conditions may drop to 30 -- Fact!!)
    - A 125cc needs more engine oil means more expense because of that.
    - Incase of an Accident, Parts for a 125cc are more expensive (comparatively)
    - Tyres/Tubes ... incase of some major damage or wear & tear ... they cost more.

    ... these are just some highlights.

    However, In comparison to "the benefit" a 125cc offers, yes you may call it (the expense of 125cc from 70cc) "not much". (Benefits may include better road grip means lesser accidents & better brakes - No fear of bike shut down in rainy weather, where almost all 70cc fails and refuse to start -- etc etc ... And i did say "in comparison to a 70cc)

    Sprinter 110 cc Vs Honda CD70
    Fuel Average :
    60+/- Both .
    Speed and its Impact on engine .
    CD70 ---? if drive 70km speed, engine works on 100% Capacity (Due to 70 cc) Require more maintainance and Performance Reduce very soon .
    Sprinter ----? If Drive 70km Speed, engine works on 65% capacity (Due to 110 cc) Require less Maintainance and Not put load on engine .
    Air Filter :
    Cd70---? Change Once in a month
    Sprinter -----? Only Wash .
    Oil Filter :
    Cd70 ---? No oil Filter use .
    Sprinter ----? use Oil Filter (means better protection of engine ) Change Oil Filter after 5000km.

    i would expect around following mileages in real world from worst to favourable conditions

    CD70-------- 50-60Km/L (talking about CD70 only, not Chonda 70s)
    Junoon------ 40-50Km/L ( Chonda 70s also come in this catagory)
    GS150--------- 30-40Km/L

    I have personally used these bikes and i usually ride hard, so these are about lowest mileages you can keep in mind while making decision. That being said, even if you are conscious about fuel economy, i will strongly suggest to go for 100cc at least. I have heard good things about Pridor/Raider fuel efficiency.

    Thanks for the advise, now i am definitely going to purchase 100 cc or 110 cc, these bikes are in my range, I won't go for 70 cc now. Weather it is Pridor or Raider or Sprinter, do give me advise on which one will be best among these bikes, i do not care about the looks of my vehicle i just care about its performance and quality.

    Waise maine bhi Suzuki kay baray mein suna hai k after sales mechanics kaam hain aur charge bohat kartay hain choti choti chezon k liye. Honda ka network bara hai aur charges bohat economical hain

    i have a suzuki sprinter, i bought it a month ago roughly. aik baat hai k suzuki bike letay huay sai dil rakhna parhta hai because it will disappoint you in many strange ways (the disappointments will go away themselves )

    The fuel consumption of my Sprinter was 40KM/L for the first 150KM. After that it gave a continuous 50KM/L. After the first tuning at 1000KMs, it is still giving me 50KM/L. The mechanic told me to visit the showroom once more so the fuel mixture can be optimally set by observing the fuel consumption

    The front suspension is hard. The handlebar wobbles badly on bad roads. I hate this thing. Shayad meri bike main hi koi masla hai

    The performance of this motorcycle is very good. It goes to 80 on third. For better mileage you can just leave it in 4th and drive at 60-70. Do not try to over rev the bike in the first 2 gears.
    @gull_s_777 kal Pindi main Suzuki ka camp lag raha hai apparently japanese mechanics will also be there, you coming?

    Go for suzuki sprinter
    I have two sprinters 1 for me and other for my brother.
    Genuine parts of suzuki are expensive but they dont wear out and last long.
    I have suzuki for last 5 years and used if for long tours of northern areas, bike always performed well.
    Ride is smooth and gripy. You cannot compare it with any 70 cc bike.
    I am fully satisfied with this bike. All i do is to get tune up bike from suzuki workshop after 1000-1200 kms
    Fuel avg is varies from 50-65 kmpl.
