    Default Help me choose my next bike

    Aoa brothers!

    Ive had my sprinter for more than a year now (13775 KM), and while it has been a trouble free bike and is still serving me well, ive gotten rather bored of it. So its time now to choose a new bike. :-)

    Choices: Piaggio 125, Deluxe, GS150

    Piaggio: a lot of goodies come included in the price, especially the updated version is very good value for money

    Deluxe: well built but expensive. I love its sound but the cost is way too high

    GS150: good power and a very comfortable machine. But has too many mechanical issues even when new, for me its not worth the headache especially jab mechanic sirf aik hai pindi men iska

    Give your thoughts on these 3 and help me decide:-) thanks brothers!

    Jazakallah

    every ride has its own pros & cons!
    its u who have to choose between ....once u like a ride then all other factors are ignore able.

    like piaggio is a best value for money if we see what we receive after spent bucks imo but its after sale service is not good at all thats y its nor recommendable for especially bz bees .

    but if u like this bike then managing these things is not a big deal.one just need some patience plus a healthy pocket for its expensive spares & that too in case of their need. other wise quality products didn't often need spares.

    if bigger tye then you will lose power/speed down to same as dlx/rp then you will need RIM too ? then front RIM as well :/ ...
    and then Sure one days after suicidal escape you will realize you need brakes as well ... I love GS150, it has a whooping paower and a realaible engine from suzuki... its a best choice for any humble biker/tourist but if you are hard on throttle you will definitely realise you should have invested more on brakes and road Grip.

    Everyone's going nuts over spare parts and sale and service issue.

    As per me it has to be me; totally pissed due to spare parts issue due to my long tours. But i have faced any problem yet.

    So you guys need a certificate of assurance about Ravi Piaggio reliability??

    Here it goes:

    If you think Deluxe is expensive than do consider Super Power SP-125.
    Its a deluxe clone. Same specs but quite cheaper.
    One difference is that of the silencer....... not deluxe silencer but the louder CG silencer.
    Bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory.

    you are advising him to buy a cg classic or a deluxe if classic its the most uncomfortable bike and he is looking for power and he already used sprinter. cg are you mad bro a healthy sprinter will smoke a cg very easily
