I just want to upgrade from my 110 Sprinter. After doing lots of surveys, I have cut down the choices to CG-125 and GS150. Below I am writing down some comparison which I have experienced my self by having discussions with experts and lots of test rides. My two cousins, one owns GS and other one owns CG (both are in stock and in perfect conditions). So I just want to get feedback from my dearest PakWheelers especially Xarak and BlueHorn brothers as they look to me die hard fans of bikes and know the technicalities good.
I found CG is quite quick at the pick-up. GS lacks at the sudden pick like CG but later on it accelerate better than CG.
I found GS much better in road grip as it is heavier.
Bike Control at High speeds:
GS has more control due to its better road grip, less vibration (which eventually vanishes as you pass 90km/h mark).
GS has certainly very less vibration and very smooth. There is no doubt about it.
Due to sitting posture, weight, and suspensions, GS found more comfortable. Less comfortable for Pillion rider.
High Speed Riding:
Please please note that I am not claiming any of these bikes top speeds here. I was able to reach 110km/h on both bikes. CG gives me more vibration, less control, lesser road grip where as GS had no such problems. It was still calm, less vibration and very good control.
Hence there is no comparison at this point. But it is good to have oil filter. Longer oil life, engine gets cleaner oil every time. A good feature to have in your ride in my opinion.
Gear Weird sound:
GS has this sound when you release the accelerator suddenly. I asked many, they told me that it is not harmful but just disturbing.
Economy (with well tuned bikes avg speed 60 - 70km/h):
CG with 124cc gives you 35 - 40km/lit. GS gives you 45 - 50km/liter.
GS has advanced technology as it is an OHC with auto adjustable tappets, auto adjustable timing chain. This is one biggest plus of GS over CG.
I have no issue if it is decade old tech or modern. If it is good, good enough for me.
After doing surveys, I have found both bikes equally reliable and tough. So both wins here.
Resale Value, support, spare parts: I have not discussed these because I live in Karachi so I have issue with these. I can sacrifice resale value over other advantages.
At the moment I am inclined towards GS-150 due to the facts I have mentioned above. But I have equal intent towards CG if one give me good reasons.
Dear Xarak, BlueHorn, I would love to see your feedbacks.
