    Default Help Needed in buying New Bike..

    Hi Guys.
    I am from karachi and wants to buy new bike, but i am confused which bike to buy..
    i am currently using Soharab JS70 2003 model currently and wants to change a bike / better bike.
    as much as local market is concern m not much more interested in china bikes..

    I have few option in my mind like:
    1. Honda CD 70 or CG 125.
    2. Ravi piaggio Storm 125.
    3. Suzuki GD 110.
    4. any other good option.

    I am not "main tey honda lesa" type of person, & not a fan of honda or 125 madness.
    i want a good bike having these points in mind:

    1. karachi's circumstances, as hondas are on hit list of snatching. so a bike thats not on this hot list.
    2. a good built quality bike with reasonable acceptable features, comfort & looks / design too.
    3. a bike that give me more years on road with availability of its parts.
    4. a bike that can be maintained easily by me & mechanics as well.

    personally m confused in Ravi piaggio Storm & Suzuki GD 110. both have almost same price tags.

    So Guys please kindly help me & guide me what to do, I want a bike in a month or two.
    looking forward for your helpful guidance & replies.
    Thank you in advance..

    If you are willing to put up with parts availability issue then you can go with RP.
    It's a killer in looks and features both in reasonable price.

    Else GD will be good option with Suzuki network support. And consider GD110S if you can extend the budget a little.
    You are spending 1 lac+ on a bike. Might as well get one with the self-start.

    @gull_s_777
    Thank you for your quick response.
    I personally like Ravi Piaggo Storm more than GD 110, & love to have electric start as well, but the thing is i want a better bike at every aspect bcoz m not going to change bike in coming 7-8 years.
    m already a part of suzuki network, bought new suzuki swift DLX 1.5 years back from naseer autos, & m much satisfied from suzuki people.

    GD110s is good, i can raise budget upto 1.22lacs but i dnt like the alloys suzuki is giving, world wide black powdered rims are in..
    these are silver not much appealing & design of rims are too good as well.

    But i've heard that there is no authorized dealer of Ravi Piaggio in karachi? whats the truth can i have arability of parts in karachi or would it be a headache for me?

    I wanted to get a bike as well but I've decided to wait till Yamaha comes out. I suggest you do the same.

    i like GD 110 looks more better than GD110s, because silver rims are not too much appealing they should be black powdered, design of rims not good also. Unique UD100 has good designed powdered rims..
    2dnly rounded headlight of GD110 is attractive as compared to GD110s covered headlight. only benefit is self starter. in my opinion.
    lets see what experts say..

    I havent seen both bikes..
    but in pics, piaggio storm looks bit higher and the back part above tail light is more elongated.
    GD110 is bit lower & has better back part.. in my views..

    so guide me over all wht to buy?

    Well you have A 2003 model bike, it mean that you are not early changer, matlab bike 3-5 saal tak tu use karni hai aap nay. As already mentioned by a member if spare parts can be sourced by you then go for ravi otherwise Suzuki GD110 is a good option. The only bike of which i have not heard any complaints. Plus i know their spares are little overpriced but if you keep the good care of your machine i.e. no delays in routine maintenance work then Suzuki is fine

    If you want to keep bike for a long while then go for honda deluxe or a suzuki raider. These are bulletproof bikes with minimun hassle of maintenance. Gd110 is a good option but its relatively new so we dont know how it holds up in the long term
