    Red face My new CG Classic... (automotorsport_lover)

    Updated: Bought Honda CG 125 Classic on 31st May 2014

    My new CG Classic automotorsportlover -1430374My new CG Classic automotorsportlover -1430375


    Ride & Impression:
    After riding Yamaha Junoon for 4 years, CG feels quite different.
    Its not smooth or refined as Junoon but surely is brute raw power! Tourqe at low RPMs is good but at 6000-9000 Rpms you can feel the best acceleration!

    I'd describe CG Classic as: Simple, Robust, Reliable & Raw. A work horse.


    Build Quality:
    Build quality of Honda is indeed good, nice paint & chrome finish along with a crisp sounding engine. Another thing that I have noticed in Honda is that it does not need much running/break-in. I have driven her below 50Km/hr for the first 500Kms and after that I felt she had broken-in enough. I started slowly increasing speeds & lately I have also touched 90 km/hr but no signs of her getting annoyed or something. Did't even feel her heating up... this makes me think that either Honda bikes have better engine fitting or these come half broken-in from the factory... Im not sure though.

    I also noticed that the user manual of my Honda did not stress that much on the break-in process as much as my Yamaha's did. I now frequently cruise at 70-80Km/hr and she never minds!


    Flaws:
    There are no major flaws a.k.a. factory defects in a CG. Yes the rims needed allignment (well that goes for all new bikes) but I don't mind since I had to get the rims and mudgaurds compunded anyway, so getting them alligned as well wasn't something that bothered me. The whole job was done expertly and neatly by a local shop and they charged only 350Rs.

    Yes the front tyre is a little defected as it wobbles, the wobble is not that much so for now I am ignoring it but I might go for a claim if company allows claim on tyres.

    As claimed by some of the PW members that new CGs have these problems:
    2nd gear khatak sound - is not present!
    Khee Khee sound - is not present!

    Patakha Sound from exhaust while DECELERATING through engine braking IS present in all new Euro 2 Models. Some have more, some have less.

    Update: First detailing after purchase pics on page 11

    You are right. But it is also a fact that your commute is quite long and you could have benefited a lot from the comfort offered by GS/RP.

    Bought a CG?I thought you despise that ride.
    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.

    @ammarzahid
    Haha yes i know man... dilemma is there no doubt, again id say... what is ur need?

    If u have a spare bike at home, then go for Suzuki/RP from any reputed large showroom... (since if it breaks u have a backup ride)if u want reliability then cg125 classic is the best...

    When i say reliable i mean no major defects.. small problems might be there but those are in all new bikes such as:
    Misaligned rims/ a fused bulb/ or ur odometer might start to mess up. but these are problems which are not big and does not give u any tension... specially in a honda cg/cd classic bike bcoz mechanics/electricians/tire shop guys are so trained on these bikes...!

    So sit back, relax and calculate ur risk taking ability.. u can go risk averse like me, or take risks and associated rewards...

    Yehi batein soch k mene Dlx nikalwaya tha k sabse mehnga a yeto a
    sai hoga? But usme bhi blunderous flaws dekh k i went for cg classic...
    khota bike!

    *sigh Let me ask this question. Apart form the usual "vibration, spare parts, broken tail lights or indicators etc issue", how many times did you hear of a major engine fault in GS150 or RP125? People say that Self Start is unreliable which is why AHL does not include it in its bikes.

    So Automotorsport_Lover, when you say "keep a spare bike, incase RP/GS breaks down", you are clearly mistaken. Engine wise, all of these bikes are equally reliable. And i have not seen A SINGLE CASE where it broke down. So "reliability wise" all of these bikes can "finish a journey", just like your CG125. (Heck @Silver_Knife have done long routes on his RP125, and GS150 have climbed mountains) And there is still this dilemma that only AHL bikes are reliable.

    A while ago, someone was facing "Starting issues" in his brand new GS150. Big deal. Minor electricity problem or a faulty rectifier. Making a big fuss about it like other bikes never faced this problem.

    Once again i'll urge you to clear up this confusion of yours, that honda is the only brand reliable. You chose a CG125 because of spare parts issue ALONE. You have not even started to face any issues with this bike, and when you will (which you most certainly will), then i'll ask you to COMPARE these issues with your previous Junoon (plus the cost involved). THEN, if there is little honesty left in you, you will notice that CG125 is not only expensive to maintain, but it also demands "MORE" number of maintainence rounds as compared to your previous bike, and most probably "on par" with rest of the bikes in its category (like GS150 or RP125).
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    Haha...

    I dont know what makes u say that so confidently..! I have seen numerous engine related issues on all other bikes... honda has the least amount of those!

    bdw.. would u every time come and try to defend suzuki/Rp whenever id say something about them?
    Salam ha apko... what a patriot!

    no use trying to change my perceptions... we shall agree to disagree, mera point of view mere apny experiences ki base pe yehi ha k CG is more trouble free bike than suzukis and Rps...

    I have owned a small brand for 4yrs, faced and resolved all issues it had... have got khuar for getting quality work done for it(going up to 20kms away from my home)

    and even had the chance to talk to kharadias and mechanics about it... i tried to obtain most unbiased views from them...

    the fact is... honda sells many hundred thousands of bikes each year and yet u never hear it had some serious problem... suzuki and Rp sells a few thousands or hundreds... yet u come across sad owners quite frequently...

    do the math.. the ratio....

    what i want to say here is... theres a 50-50 chance of getting stuck with a bad Gs or Rp... so be prepared, dont risk all u have saved up to buy a Gs or Rp... at least own a spare bike for a few months after purchase... until u get sure that ur piece doesn't have any problem...
    Sell afterwards...

    What im saying here... can be easily understood by a working person...

    Suzuki/Rp with a blunder engine/chasis wont sell easily... and would really create trouble for u... however even a badly accidented Honda CG can be sold in the market openly within a few mins...


    Mashwara amanat a bhai? Men kiyun kisi ko pareshani men dhakelun? Sari profits ki game ha... Smaller companies make several decisions each day to increase their profits which affect end users in a bad way just to ensure their survival... bigger companies dont have to that often.

    Quality control ki sari baat ha.. and QC best honda ka he hai... its a fact! Yes i do agree with u to the extent that a perfect piece of GS/ Rp can have equal reliability and long life than a honda.. or even better...
    But my argument is... how many of those bikes exist? We would have to consult owners... and many of them are angry! Not happy...

    Read a recent thread about different grades of suzuki bikes sold... what u'd say about it?

    Anyways... U cant change me(should neither try to) and id hold my stance so lets be happy like this!

    The main problem is that after riding a Suzuki bike for more than a year my senses have become accustomed to a vibration-free experience. That coupled with minor things like ignition kill switch, spring-operated indicator stocks, and the quality of customer service (once u get it) is really unmatched on the current honda bikes. I want a bigger and more powerful bike now which has all of the above, and only GS fulfills that criteria. Am i prepared to take the risk? Yes, i already did when i bought a brand new Sprinter(which was discontinued after a few months). What im not prepared for is big problems like misaligned chassis/handle. These sorts of issues which cannot be repaired, im prepared to go thru some hassle of making the bike perfect. Owning a sprinter i can say that this is probably the most reliable bike engine in pakistan (no tuning, just oil and oil filter changes). maybe next to YBs, cd70 and cg125. Piaggio is off the table.

    Make a topic, "Sport bikes in Pakistan"

    Everyone will come and post. "We need sport bikes, we need change, its time to say good bye to those 80s bike"

    And when time comes to buy " dekh bhai ye honda ki bike ka spare parts ka issue ni, puncture lagane wala bhi iski complete tunning karleta hai, or upper se is ka meter utar ke or tappay wagaira change karke to ye gxxr ko 4th gear me pakr leti hai, bhai apni mehnat ki kamai me zaya thori karunga"

    People still doesnt know difference between Honda and Atlas Honda. Implement koi ni karta, bus pakwheels pe pakistan ke adhey se ziada tajzia nigar bethe hein.

    SK bhai I agree but so called jo change ata ha its so expensive that people don't bother looking at it...

    I still remember the days when Piaggio 150 was discussed here 1/2 years ago.... people were like ye kab ayegi etc etc....

    And now as it's launched, everyone's disappointed to see price tag. Including myself. I had 99% chances of buying it but only if it was 2lac or near.....

    So we're left with no other choice, local craps....

    I'm personally fed up of AHL. What they're doing is complete non sense. Iske parts usko, uske parts isko, thode se graphics change, new meter and here you go, a new model or you can say A NIGHTMARE Ofcorse ....

    I feel the need to change bike, but I don't find any quality one except for Piaggio storm

    @Automotorsport_Lover ! Not everytime I'll come to argue Only when i see too absurd statements like "keep a spare bike before buying brand new". And NO, i am not at all here to "change" your views. You are most welcome to act as retarded as you can :p (j/k)
    @ammarzahid! Currently "PBC" has a major GS150 club, and they also have close ties with the company (can get you discounted prices and so on). So i'd say before buying, talk to them (ask malikg115)
    Riders on the storm ... literally.
