    Default Better Seating Posture? GS vs RP

    Those fellows who have fair experience of riding both RP previous model and GS, could you please tell me which bike has the better seating posture in a longer run.

    In future I might be switching to one of these two so doing some sort of survey. My daily travelling is around 55 - 60 kms and I'm around 5'10''. Technology wise, spare parts, quality issues, I have a fair amount of idea by now reading forums here.

    Ignoring everything else here, I am purely asking for the seating position as I want a comfortable bike with best seating position. Deluxe is not in my reach being a Karachitie.

    @ammarzahid, @dongiovanni, @saboor73, @rizwan4340, @bike_junky, @vickytulla, @waqas18

    If I would conclude this discussion a bit then there should be no surprise that I might go for GD even I didn't include it in my list at the start of this thread. And this is the real beauty of this forum. Much thanks to all....

    Few reasons are,

    Seat:
    Clearly outclassed, best among all. Really helpful in minimizing the bump effects.

    Shocks:
    Efficient in working and do the job nicely. Very good shock observers especially the rare ones are. There will no tyre - mudguard gape issue and even there is a space to switch to 18 inch wheel for better fuel economy.

    Seating posture:
    Both rider and the pillion have a relaxed / comfortable seating posture.

    Handling in rush hours:
    GD handling is way easy than GD or RP. I mean its obvious but the point is that GD handling is more suitable to me under the road conditions.

    Acceleration and Top speed:
    I know acceleration is quick / brisk and I do not know what is top speed

    Recent updates:
    As we come to know that alloys and self start is coming so it will be a big plus.


    There is one hurdle left now which is the recent rumor about that very much expected launch of Yamaha 125ccs. I can wait for May or June 2015 and will see if the launch is promising.

    according to khurram autos page the yamahas will have an expected price between 120K 130K so it might be worth waiting.

    Best is to have a test ride of GD, RP and GS150. And opt one which seems u most comfortable. I hope bigger engine and heavy weight of GS150 will give you peace of mind. You will not feel it under power and bumpy.

    Please surf on internet. If your seat it too much soft it will make you more tired on long journey. Because soft seat tends you to sit/sink in a same posture limiting your blood flow. One have to change his riding riding posture after every 30 mints to have better blood flow.

    Please read the motor cycle seat portion of this link:
    Long Distance Motorcycle Riding Tips: Part 2 (Comfort)

    Seat of GS150 is not too much soft as compared to GD. According to this link GS150 seat is good for long journey. Also GS150 is heavy it will more smooth on small and big bumps as compared to GD. I never rode GD but these are just my reviews may be i am wrong.

    The problems of GD that you've mentioned, I've never faced a single problem in my GD-110 till date. Just my observation.

    I agree with Ammar. I am evaluating GD and GS only from the comfort standpoint and this is clearly mentioned in the start.


    Rahi baat issues ki tou mene bohot say logon ko dekha hai sunna hai Sprinter ki bhi buriyan kertay howay. 2006 mein sunta tha k China bikes k engine saal bhi bari mushkil say nikaltay hein lakin meri Star ajj bhi sealed hai sirf ring change howay hein.

    Top speed discuss ho chuki hai pehlay bhi bohot bar.

    Sprinter mujhe regularly 68 kms / liters petrol avg de rahi hai...

    GD ka average is lye bhi kum hai k us k tyre 17 inch k hein aur Sprinter say behter accleration deti hai. GD chalanay ka maza bhi isi lye ziada hai is ki cutting aur traffic jam mein mazay say nikal jati hai.

    So again any bike is a champion in one aspect than the other and one need to evaluate them according to his needs.
