    100cc will be fine for a solo rider.
    But for doubling, 125/150cc are the way to go.

    125cc is recommended. But 100cc can also pull the job. Go for pridor its a good bike

    In my opinion, Suzuki Rider/Standard Sprinter is more suitable. Less bulky, more power, better acceleration, better road grip, strong build. The only issue is of spare parts availability and a mechanic who knows Suzuki bikes.

    @ OP - 100 cc wouldn't not be suitable to northern areas and as the height increases you will find yourself pushing the bike as it will refuse to go on. I had a friend who became adamant about travelling to lake saif al malook (in kaghan valley) on his cd70. He did manage to reach the lake but that you cannot say that he rode his cd70 there. At many places he had to drag the weight of his bike, especially around slopes.
    So if you are looking to do a bike tour of northern areas where you sit on a bike then you should take minimum a 125cc bike. Else, if you plan to part-ride-your-bike and part-push-your-bike then even a cd70 will do the job.

    I personally feel that the best bike for tours of northern areas in Honda CG125 because:
    - it has the best power to weight ratio in today's locally available bikes
    - it has the best spare parts and mechanic availability in northern areas
    - it is extremely light weight and so very easy to maneuver around rough tracks

    Before I get accused of being a cg125 fan, you should know that I own a cg125, a gs150 and gs500. And I have also done many trips. I feel that a trail bike is best suited for such areas, but since such bikes are not yet available locally (fingers crossed for qingqi) , the best bike for now is cg125 (for reasons stated above).

    CG125 is best option but its front wheel is prone to leave the ground quite easily this is the negative point, but not for one wheelers.

    There are many negative points about cg125 and if I start mentioning them here then it will be a more than 1000 words essay
    But for the time being, I do not see a much better bike for northern areas than cg125. We have quite a small and limited bike options in Pakistan to begin win. Woh kehtay hain na 'andhoon mein kana raja'

    @ BlueHorn, have you taken your gs500 to northern areas, how does it climb. I am talking about it's performance on road, not off-road. Will you prefer gs500 over let's say cg125 (other than fuel cost)?

    If I was going to ride on mountain areas where all roads are paved then definitely gs500 would be better suited. However, the roads on northern areas start to become an off road track the higher you go. Some roads are too narrow (so turning is an issue) while some are just a slush (mud + water). For such areas you need a bike which doesnt only have power but also very light and easy to maneuver. For such places a trail would ace. So if you like to visit northern areas frequently and have the money for a bigger cc bike then trail is the best option.

    I have visited Neelum Valley (AJK) with my friend on Junoon and it didn't let me down anywhere. We rode it till the end, didn't have to push it at any place. Rode continuously from Muzaffarabad to Taobat in one day.
    So basically if 100cc can take 2 riders then single rider should be piece of cake for it. anybody else have any experience with 100cc in northern areas???

    Comfort:

    Pridor is more comfortable due to its long jumps thus more space to absorb jerks.

    Raider is also comfortable, the front shocks are good and rare too. But it has big drawback, rare wheel distance to mud guard is very less. And you need to adjust the jumps according to load, in double case, soft position wont work as tyre will touch the mugguard easily. Plus due to less distance there is less space to absorb jerks.

    Mileage:

    I own sprinter standard 2008/09 (NON EURO) model. Currently it is giving me ~70kms/lit and I am telling you this honestly. My daily route is well build plan roads but with heavy rush of traffic.

    It can be resolved easily by adjusting the jumps to littler harder position. It will work good in double case and remain comfortable but not in the single case as jumps gets harder.
