    Default Best bike available in budget of 1.2Lacs

    1. Honda Cd 200
    2. Honda Cg 125 deluxe
    3. Suzuki Gs 150

    Which of the above will be best suited for the following points:

    1. Comfort for Rider
    2. Comfort for Pillion
    3. Cruising for up to 2 hours
    4. Average fuel Consumption
    5. Spare-parts availability
    6. Mechanic Availability

    I will be using it mostly in city, Daily use mostly is 5 km but on weekends is 50 km. My height is 5'8" , i weigh 95 kg.
    Previously I have used Honda Cd 70 for 6 years but now it has become very uncomfortable for daily use, I feel tired after 2 km.

    I am still open to recommendations because i will be buying it after EID-UL-FITR, this bike would mostly be used by me in Islamabad.
    While living in Islamabad will there be any problem regarding parts or mechanics
    I have also read some good reviews about Cg 125 the new euro 2 version , is it worth all the hype. i know its mechanics are plenty.
    I knew you will end up in these too... from here it will be purely your own choice, you know in detail knowledge of both bikes... I would suggest to visit and have a look in real to both bikes.. it will help making a good decsion ..

    If it has to be used in Rawalpindi/Islamabad then RP 125 will not be a very good choice, there are no good Ravi mechanics in Pindi/Islamabad + Parts will be a pain in the a$$.

    You won't be having any difficulty regrading the parts and mechanic of GS150 in Islamabad/Pindi.

    CG125 Euro II

    1. It is quite faster than the non euro CGs. (Easily beats the non euros in a drag)
    2. Has better looks/graphics.
    3. Comes with faults like; Clutch box sound, low quality shock absorbers.
    4. Very uncomfortable just like the previous ones.

    I own a CG125 Euro II. And i would recommend you to NOT purchase it if you want some comfort.

    Go for GS150, you will not have to sacrifice anything.
    Go for CG125, you will have to sacrifice the comfort.
    Go for RP125, you will have to sacrifice the Power, Speed, parts and mechanics availability.

    If i were in your place, me aankhein band ker ke GS150 le leta.

    Gs 150 vs RP 125 . I Guess displacement won
    My uncle just purchased a new Gs 150 a month back. I will visit him in a few days and take a test drive.
    By the way can a properly restored Honda CD 200 be a good choice because i once rode it and it felt like it was the best available small displacement Commuter and Long touring bike. Also i might add i might be doing some long routes every month from Islamabad to Lahore

    I have been riding bikes for six years. I started with Honda Cd 70 2007 model first owner. And have also ridden Cg 125, Cg 125 deluxe, Sprinter, Cd 200 and an altered Cg 125 with capacity of 150 cc It`s performance was comparable to Cd 200.
    So i have some experience in riding bigger bikes.
    I don`t want to own a bike with intent of having to visit mechanic every now and then.
    My main problem with Cd 70 is comfort, there is none available for rider or pillion. However i would opt for Gs 150 if only issue is the pillion seat, if seat could be changed to provide better pillion comfort then this would be best otherwise i still have option of RP 125.
    BTW Is there any news of Ravi launching their 150 cc bike, because then i would prefer this because myself and pillion found it very Good for our 240 kg weight

    @vickytulla bro no hard feelings....its simple mathematics...Allah karay aap 3 minutes mein 50 kilometer kar lein, mujhay kya...but doing 50 kilometers in 20 minutes means a speed of 150 km/hr, u agree or not

    50 kilometers - 20 minutes
    100 kilometers - 40 minutes
    150 kilometers - 60 minutes = 1 hour

    so please tell me where i went wrong even if u did on ur roadmaster or headmaster, i m really happy for u, but trust me bro, to do an AVERAGE of 150 kilometers per hour.....thats a LOT actually

    if u did 47 kilometers in 24 minutes, that comes out to be an average of 117.5 km/hr

    just lighter part bro...dil par na lein.....remember u r talking to a hypermiller who gets 16 km per liter with AC on within Pindi on his 1.3

    PS : i m a telecommunication engineer from NUST. please grant me this much that i know maths a LIL bit

    Hyper-milling uncle from NUST, LUST, whatever, first tell me how you are hyper milling?!!

    Uncle, no hard feeling but Pindi roads are not like motorway where you can keep steady speed, you will need to apply brakes and slow the car down every now and then. Either you drive at 20km/h and hence dont need to use much brakes or you simply go 'annay waah' and hit everything on the road and even the sidewalk
    Besides, at 20km/h you will just be a MAST graduate who got educated but had no ethics or manners and was hence holding up entire traffic behind him

    Also, uncle, 3 wheels section is not for boasting modest hyper-milling figures of cars. So i think you need new glasses. You are member since last 7 years, you should know the posting rules by now
    Btw, i think some cg125 guy cut you at speed while you were busy doing hyper-milling. This frustrated you and forced you to do the only thing you could about it ... and thus you became a keyboard warrior in 3 wheels section

    And uncle, when you get new glasses, ask someone to show you what speed a 250cc bike can achieve, they can be as tamed as xl250 (top speed wise) or as wild as an inline 4 fzrr

    Not everyone is stingy enough to drive at 20km/h just to save a few hundred rupees. Allah karay ke aap 100km/l ke average attain karain par road par logon ke roz galiaan sunna at least mera toh shauq nahi
    Now, kindly use the power of a calculator and demonstrate that you are able to use it (just like a 5 year old) and proceed to amuse me on how much rupees I can save by 'hyper-milling' and pissing off everyone on my way to work each morning

    p.s. No one here gives a damn if you graduated from Nust or Lust or Mast. Just stick to topic which is about 'Best bike available in budget of 1.2Lacs'
    Rest assured, your attempt to amuse us with your calculator skills has FAILED

    RP 125 vs GS 150
    Which one has better build quality, because i was hoping not to face any initial problems like wheel bearings, Tyre rim Quality,
    Frame, Meter not functioning properly
    Also gull_s_777 brother i have read your threads. And seeing as you have owned both Gs 150 and CG 125 deluxe, which one do you think is better option.
    Also why did you go from GS 150 To CG 125 Deluxe and then back again to GS 150. What was the problem

    well i came back to GS after using both, so my opinion is obvious

    Also why did you go from GS 150 To CG 125 Deluxe and then back again to GS 150. What was the problem
    No problem, it's just that I got the deal of selling my GS for 98K, so i thought why the hell not. It's the chance to try something new, so i went ahead and avail it. But soon after "new bike's shouq" was over, i started missing GS so got one again.
    So my choice would be GS.

    Initial problems like
    1.Paint quality
    2.Meter fluctuations
    3.Chain Cover Noise
    4.Tyre quality
    Did you face any of these problems
    Also do you think disk brake of Deluxe is better than drum brakes of Gs 150 OR both have equal stopping power

    Initial problems like
    1.Paint quality
    Paint quality is better in Honda bikes.

    2.Meter fluctuations
    The smaller adjustable odometer was inaccurate in GS, so i got the meter replaced in warranty. No meter problem faced in Deluxe.

    3.Chain Cover Noise
    Didn't faced this issue in any of these 2 bikes.

    4.Tyre quality
    No problem in tyre quality of any of these 2 bikes. It's just that GS comes with 3.00-18 tyre which isn't enough for a bike of this power and weight. So one better upgrade to 90/90 or even 100/90 size tyre. (bigger tyre need bigger rim also, so replace the rim with Deluxe rim if you are going to put bigger tyre).

    Also do you think disk brake of Deluxe is better than drum brakes of Gs 150 OR both have equal stopping power
    Deluxe disk brake is much better than any drum brake. No comparison.

    What was the main reason you came back to Gs 150 from 125 deluxe
    was it because of the vibration at high speed, because of better fuel economy at high speed, better stability, or because of personal preference.
    I am asking this because i am slightly edging towards buying 125 deluxe because of it being a complete package, Complete package meaning it does not have to modified in any way , it does not come with any initial problems.i was hoping to buy a brand new bike so i would not have to go through hassle of checking used bikes with mechanic
    IF i buy a Gs 150 i would need to change the rims , not because of need of bigger Tyre but because many buyers say it punctures the tube and there might also be other quality issues

    vickytulla would RP 125 be a good choice against CG 125 Deluxe ,
    If RP 125 did not have self start would you still choose it over CG 125 deluxe

    Yup vibration at high speed was one reason, fuel economy is same on both bikes, GS is more stable at high speed.

    I am asking this because i am slightly edging towards buying 125 deluxe because of it being a complete package, Complete package meaning it does not have to modified in any way , it does not come with any initial problems.i was hoping to buy a brand new bike so i would not have to go through hassle of checking used bikes with mechanic.
    No doubt Deluxe is a well finished package. You just buy it and use it. Quality control of Honda is better so it is very less likely to have minor initial issues.

    IF i buy a Gs 150 i would need to change the rims , not because of need of bigger Tyre but because many buyers say it punctures the tube and there might also be other quality issues
    I never faced the puncture issue. I have changed the rear rim with Deluxe rim, and put the stock rear rim at front. No puncture till now.

    This is a matter of personal preference, now that you know the pros and cons of all three bikes.

    But i would choose between GS and RP.
    Deluxe is buy and use type bike. While GS/RP need some care and love especially in the start. Once minor issues are cleared in warranty, you'll have the bike "zara hatt ke" with better stability and more riding pleasure. Self-start would be another big plus. so for me totally worth the hassle.

    Thanks Brother gull Your Experiences have helped me to the see the differences between Deluxe 125 and Gs 150.
    I have seen and examined both bikes very carefully and it is hard to differentiate between them , both have self start and both are almost equal in weight.
    If both are equally stable at high speeds, and have almost same speed with max 10km difference then i might buy RP 125 as compared to GS 150, mainly due to disk brake.

    Brother gull and vickytulla is RP 125 be as vibration-less as Gs 150 on high speeds of 80 kph to 90 kph. If RP 125 is better option than Gs 150 then i might buy it, otherwise i would go for GS 150.
    And finally do you think that any Honda 150 or RP 150 would launch because if it might launch in august then i would consider to buy it, especially the RP 150, as i have had chance to carefully examine it. The exhaust, digital speedometer, self start, disk brake, raised sporty handlebars, sports Tires on it make it an excellent eye-catching package, which could be used as a daily work horse or a casual highway cruiser.
