    Default When Ride Comfort is the priority -- Help Required!

    As Salam o Alaikum. I've been searching & reading a lot of threads these days, however I couldnt find a specialized thread focusing on riding comfort.

    Actually I am willing to purchase a new motorbike & my choices are amongst GS 150/Pridor, please help me understand amongst these which is the most comfortable daily commuter as I have to cover a distance of 70kms on a daily basis on khi roads.

    Please guide w.r.t

    1.Suspension (Shock absorption ability)
    2.Rising Posture (leaning on front/sitting straight)
    3.Seat & Seat width.

    Anticipating your expert replies Thanks.

    Pridor all the way.I know GS150 have the best suspensions but its seat is very hard.Overall i think pridor is more comfy than GS and is fuel efficient.

    Pridor is great too
    depends upon your budget and what economy you want?

    Btw, y dont u add both economy & comfort, you will get 1 extra thing : Power in GD110

    Default A bit more elaboration required with a vote of thanks :)

    First of all thanks Shaffin619 & Malikg115 for your replies

    I have to add a few things here to ask:

    1. Does the riding position of Gd 110/Prodor is good for long rides? As I have to travel 35kms & it takes me at least 45-55 minutes to reach my office which during rush hours expand to even 70-75 minutes.

    2. Do we require to lean forward while riding GD/Pridor? Because GS riding position is very upright & rider sits straight to grab the handle rather approaching for it.

    3. Yes surely maintenance & economy are major factors, but I consider them secondary as for such long durations commuting on daily basis gives one hell lot of headache & backache

    Please elaborate these grey areas for me, I shall be thankful for the offered help

    GD's seat & suspension is much much better than all, riding position is best in Storm only i believe, most of others are same. but when u count all above, GD wins.

    2. Do we require to lean forward while riding GD/Pridor? Because GS riding position is very upright & rider sits straight to grab the handle rather approaching for it.

    well, wat i remember the GD handle has little more height to balance such issues. plz note GS150 is biggest available amchine here, but does not mean its latest in design etc. Infact GD is used these days in same shape in diff countries and Pridor has same engine being used in India etc, again it is not very latest in design nor very old. the good thing is its size & suspension.
    Most of the tourist use GS for its good power to weight ratio, size, grip, no vibration. it does not mean its very Comfortable, infact i personally had 2 chances to ride Sponsored Storms, 1ce for 700kms in two days, n found it much better than GS in comfort & grip.



    3. Yes surely maintenance & economy are major factors, but I consider them secondary as for such long durations commuting on daily basis gives one hell lot of headache & backache

    I think GD has oil filter, a good air filter, no Tappet adjustment every month, so as its better in Comfort i count it better in maintenance also.

    I have only used gs150 and cd. Gs150 is good enough for me, seat is comfortable, suspension is superb, it's smooth over bumps. Don't know for pridor.

    According to a General Manager (who i know) said that Pridor is the best production unit they have at Atlas Honda.
    Heard many quality issues at Suzuki GS 150.
    Go for Pridor

    Will suggest GS150 ---- the comfort of this bike is level above than others, for 70km daily it will be perfect babe for you.

    Pridor is comfy but for 70km and above she will not be comfortable cause of the seating order.

    The experience of member Sulaiman saheb for GS 150 doing a 4000KM tour & suggestion from Kamran Aslam shall be considered seriously.

    Thanks a lot for your replies Talha, Kamran & Teeboy, I am thankful for the kind suggestions I am getting.

    Now I dont really see the equation shifting to one side, few suggest pridor while others are suggesting GS can I have a clear winner here?

    I would like to add another point here that I have a height of 5.6" & weigh 80kg so in order to ride my current Sp 70 deluxe I have to approach the handle bars & the suspension of a 70 is menacing

    So relating to these facts any further comments?

    Go for GS

    But don't just depend on the opinions here, go to showrooms and at least sit on the bikes and check the posture/riding height by yourself.

    Thanks for the response Gull, I am planning to do just that, but none could replicate the treacherous bumpy conditions on the road unless we take a ride I believe you would agree

    Both offer good comfort in bumpy conditions, so i guess you won't have to worry about that. GS has the advantage of adjustable shocks.
    GS seat isn't very comfortable, so you might wanna get it cushioned up a little.
    That leaves the seating height/posture which you can check at the showroom.

    Thanks for the suggestion waqas, can you please relate to the fact that due to inclining forward as a riding posture, would the GD suite long rides on daily basis?
