    Default Motorcycle suggestion needed, considering economy, power and maintenance

    Respected members,
    I have checked most of the reviews and posts related to motorcycles' recommendations.I need your kind suggestions and advice in selecting a motorcycle.

    Currently I have Eagle-70cc. Fuel average is ~50km/l (at 50-60km/h).
    I face problems with pillion riding...i.e..less power...engine sound changes etc.

    I am looking to buy a new bike which has enough power to carry 2 people occasionally.
    My daily commute is around 40kms. Once in a month or 2, i have to travel around 200-300kms on bike (pillion riding), so i would be needing a bike which has enough power to do the job.
    My fuel average preference in ~50km/l (not less than 45km/l in any condition).
    Kindly guide me about following bikes and other options (if any) considering fuel average, power, comfortable seat for pillion riding and MAINTENANCE COSTS (including spare parts availability).
    Currently tuning+oil change+filter change after 1000kms cost me around Rs. 500.
    (I have no issues about style or resale)

    My choices:
    Suzuki GD 110. (heard suzuki bikes engines are better than honda bikes', more reliable, but costly maintenance, less spare parts availability)
    Honda Pridor. ( heard its not as powerful as other 100 bikes, and my mechanic discourages me to buy pridor)
    Suzuki sprinter eco
    Yamaha Junoon.
    Piaggio storm 125
    ...
    I would have considered honda 125 but its fuel average is max 40 or 42 i heard.

    Thank you all for brief comparative review of all options. What I got is:
    Build Quality: Honda Pridor or Suzuki GD110.
    Long term use: Suzuki (any bike)
    Fuel economy: Suzuki
    Load: Suzuki (also due to more CCs)
    Service/Maintenance: Honda Pridor
    Comfortable ride: Honda Pridor
    ....
    Am I right?
    Kindly brief me about suzuki sprinter's seat (rider's postion) and suzuki GD110's fuel economy...I will pay more if I get reasonable fuel economy with comfort and power. Is it worth paying around Rs.23000 more to get GD110 instead of Pridor?
    - And does 'khataak' sound still appear in pridor? or it was a problem in older models?
    Thank you once again for responses.

    Well I think Both the GD & Pridor can give u 50KMPL average & considering Comfort & riding posture the GD 110 is more fun to ride. Among these two Honda Pridor have an advantage of being common brand all over the country while GD shud offer more reliability, comfort & power. As far as resale is concern bot are out market bikes

    Dont think GD110.
    1. spare part expensive
    2. economy 45KM
    3. low clearance,
    4. back fender issue.
    go for any honda .. NO for GD110..

    If suzuki sprinter's parts are little costlier than that of pridor, they are worth it. If i were in your place, i would have gone for Raider this time.

    Yes, both are OHC but Suzuki's engine, in my opinion, is better partly because it is supported by a very advanced carburetor!!

    But remember, do properly analyse b4 u buy. After all its your money. Best decision is which has both 'dil' and 'damagh' involved. Look at me, i went for Piaggio despite knowing the problems attached to this luxury(for me).
