    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.

    Minimum 110CC required Pridor won't cut it.
    OP needs to add GD/Raider into options as well.
    Well then is GD good enough to maintain 90 without falling apart & giving optimum comfort?

    GD can easily maintain 90+ without any vibration and noise....
    People with high ego and unnecessary attitude deserves the standing ovation of the tallest finger..

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions

    Well I've been reading a lot about gd in past few days, but there are few issues like fuel consumption equivalent to GS.

    So what do you guys suggest about Raider? its ride comfort? As i know its powerful.

    of the two (GS-GD) would be better at maintaining a solid 90/100.Cd can also maintain 90 Km/hr but you wont fell comfortable at all.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Raider is not known for its comfort.
    But it sure has "powerful yet economic" tag on it.
    you'll have to compromise somewhere, can't have everything in one bike

    I have similar plans for my GS150 as well
    If Yamaha rolls out Y25(250 cc) then straight into buying that but if R15 then it will a blast also
    But only if these bikes are manufactured locally by Yamaha
    Let's see and pray

    Well gull, I had the opportunity to take a ride of raider a day ago it was very very agile & powerful but I was unhappy with the seat design, too narrow perhaps overall the shock absorbers worked fine for me

    Well Aqil brother, its not about initial budget, I am willing to invest more in the beginning its just the running costs that I consider I have ridden a Raider very recently & somewhat I had to reach for the handle & the seat was too narrow otherwise it is an excellent machine, suited to my requirement
