    Default A good looking bike?

    I am looking forward to buy a new bike within the next two months! No, not a heavy bike. Just a simple one for around 1 lac or a little more. I was thinking about getting the RAVI PIAGGO as it has a decent shape and looks good. It's going to be my first and I seriously don't care about the top-speed. I just want a smooth and a good looking ride. (do mention the prize!)
    I will have no plans to resell it any sooner!

    edit: Also please consider and tell me about the durability of these bikes, the price of repair parts and mileage
    edit 2: my current location is rawalpindi

    Deluxe & Pridor are two great options for you
    no problem of spare part or qualified mechanic
    atlas honda has very vast network spread in whole country
    Deluxe is 125cc machine so it is not economical but you can expect 40km/lt & above
    Pridor is 100cc & so its economical you can expect 55km/lt & above
    Both are brilliant looking bikes & provides very good comfortable ride

    My Recommendation is go for Pridor
    Its simply a beauty & provides comfortable smoothest ride

    As per your decent budget I will suggest you a Honda 125 Deluxe with front disk-brake. In Black Colour

    *Durabilty: 100%
    *Mileage: Very Nice as compared to others.
    *Parts: Availabity not an issue through out Pakistan

    Paiggo Storm a nice bike -- but did not catch the market cause of the parts avialabity and poor marketing. else its a nice bike with lovely ride.

    Since you going for your 1st Ride -- take a Honda Start, God Forbids if Honda gets scratches or parts replacement it will be done easily else for others you might get tough time in repairing it.

    Good Luck for the Bike purchase Plan --- All the Best.

    Piaggio is nice bike, but for your first bike it will be better to go with Honda.

    Pridor is cheaper option but if you want to go for 125cc
    than my advise is straighty away eyes close go for honda 125 deluxe in black color
    man this is your first bike so its better you choose honda
    deluxe is brilliant looking robust sporty bike sounds great, has very balance looks
    and provides excellent driving position & most important
    this bike has the best honda engine the most reliable

    I see ur in Lahore no worries are going to be faced if you with paiggio storm in any case as warranty centers and proper mechnics, body modifiers all are here. and beside all its the hottest hawty in bikes horizon which is also proving its reliability as the market is getting ripped but let me mention it doesnt have the DUG DUG sound if you like it you will miss it on storm.

    but again I would not recoment it to you decide it your self because its you who will be rinding right ... Please go through this thread this may help you. (I tried putting every problem I faced using this ride before I handed over to my younger brother, might be of ur help)

    as for the poster then the best proportioned production bike in pakistan right now is the Honda Pridor. But i'm not sure about its engine, PW members like mr amjad have had a good experience but if it's your first bike then get the Honda deluxe because it has the proven CG engine. in my opinion the front visor + headlamp of the current honda deluxe does not suit the bike.

    yep, that mean this sunday .. Suzuki M50, GSX 1300 AKA Haya bausa and 250cc Inzuema are rumored al around but I am off the hook not to believe untill I see them in show rooms.. Pak wheels are going to make them a Surprise for spectators in Lahore Show at Liberty and TDCP and Jashen e baharan Fest is on the |Top and they are sponsoring the vent too .. I am expecting a big Fest. this Sunday... PBC is also offically invited by Suzuki now.

    hmm.. a marketing person i met at suzuki's showroom here in RWP also told me that Suzuki will be launching bigger bikes soon, although i just dismissed that as common marketing rubbish. The only bike i'm excited about if they do launch the mentioned bikes is the inazuma! looking forward to this sunday

    Good looking?

    Must go for Piaggio or Deluxe, still want more good then modify these two bikes in decent way instead fairings and 250R logo.
