Deluxe is a "long term" bike.
Ravi Piaggio isn't that durable.
"ALWAYS BE GOOD TO OTHERS,RESPECT ELDERS AND LOVE YOUNG ONES--ALL WILL LOVE YOU THEN."
i bought the classic cg125 because people told me its fast and comfortable and my main goal was to reach my university in time and on low budget. for that i had to go to defence road and the road i took was shaukat khanam road. Now if you have an experience of that road you may know that its a straight and wide road with very little traffic. hence i drove at that speed and sold it because i thought its better to spend more and reach safely.
recently i have completed my studies and i'm quiet sure i will land a job within city for which i got deluxe becasue of two reasons againt classic it is good for environment and it is a little technologically advanced. For this i went for deluxe becasue of the above two reasons and because main reason against classic its ridiculously old thats it
hope the confusion is clear on this part my brother

Yes I also Agree CG 125 normal one is an old Push rodder with carburated fuel system which is pretty shame for a company like honda.
But I like the way this old bike performs on the road :-D and because it has smaller chassis and low seating its a best choice for shorter hieghted people which is good for Pakistanis :-D, lastly its high maneuverability it has rigid straight back shock which give very strong control over high speed cuts which are not possible on STORM nor on DELUXE. those new high tech bikes are more tended to comfortable ride so they are not liked by young people or saturday night rider, one wheelers .. ask any one wheeler a best choice and you ill have the answers
Deluxe is great for cruising, I must say. I like to drive slow and enjoy the night air.
bhai u have had 125 classic and now dlx
so tell us about the differences between the two. also i want to ask if dlx headlight is brighter than classic?
Syd Bhai! Congratulations on your bike
Furthermore, i laugh hard at those people who say that CG-125 is a comfortable bike loool. (not referring to syd . some other person said it. I dont remember who.)
Deluxe is a good bike. But the ONLY reason i hate it ... is the friggin price tag. I mean comon, using 25 year old engine and just giving it a beautiful look ... just does not make it the best available bike. Also, i seriously dont have to mention how expensive its spare parts are. And if i were to take 'good care' of THAT bike, i would happily buy Piaggio as it has got better specifications. And now i am seeing that MANY people are buying Piaggio. Increment rate is SLOW as compared to Honda Sales, but its sales are definitely increasing day by day.
Syd also mentioned that why he didn't go for Piaggio and i agree with him on this. Well everyone might know the reason behind this. Its obvious for a company like Ravi.
Anyways ... I go to my college daily on my CG-125, nearly 50 kms daily. I know how uncomfortable and how dangerous this bike is. Uncomfortable because of its rock hard rear suspension, and dangerous because of its drum friggin brakes. To be honest, i do think of getting a Deluxe or a Piaggio DAILY. Not even a single day goes by without this thought passing in my mind. But i just do not want to sale it and get anything else. Why?
Well lets just face it that no other bike at this timeframe give you every 'good' thing you desire.
So if i were you, i would just stick to a CG-125, decrease its Fuel Mixture to a safe level, and cruise around it and enjoy it ... easily getting 45km/l fuel average and incase of any unexpected accident, much cheaper spare parts compared to any other bike of the same category/class.
Unlike Deluxe which drinks fuel like we drink water in summer lol :p
I am not disgracing any other ppl's judgement or purchase, but its me who dug DEEP before making any decision.
my brother abobobily is absolutely right on almost every point except the fact that for people getting froma car to a bike its like cruising in free. but for those getting from 70 to deluxe its a whole lot of difference.
one thing more as for ashfaq. i recommend this bike over cg125 deluxe in order to appreciate the advancement and environment protection but only if you are living beyong punjab university. If some one lives in samanabad or iqbal town or wahdat road no other option but to go for piaggio. i recently rode it a year old one of my college fellow and its like the same as deluxe in cheaper cost.
and for headlights i would say equally crappy when compared to cg125 because one thing i hate most when driving is concentrating on the speedometer and you have to do that becasue the light is not at all consistant.
"i Would like to ask a question to experts or anyone who knows. Can i install a self start on my deluxe, after market one? i really am very bad in kicking the bike it usually takes me four five tries and embarraces me"

@ abobobilly - i didnt know that dlx drank more fuel than 125 classic. is it considerably more? and what u said about daily thinking of getting a better bike, i agree 100% with that. My daily travel is around 50km as well and 125 classic is very uncomfortable. i agree about cheap parts but accident might happen once, but i have to travel daily. u are also right about the cost of the bike. though dlx is good, it is not worth 110,000.
@ syd - why do u mention that people living in wahdat road or iqbal town should get piaggio? i live near those areas. and how much fuel is ur bike consuming per litre? i really like dlx because it is very comfortable. cg125 is just not bearable for daily travel. when i first bought it i posted so many threads on pw and aksed so many mechanics as to why it vibrated so hard and they all said that it is how all cg125 classics are. u rode both of them so u will be able to tell me if dlx vibrates in same way or does it have less vibration? also i have heard piaggio members complain that their fuel gauge starts dancing at speed, does dlx fuel gauge act in similar way or remain stable like car fuel gauge?
Congratulations on your new bike, syd.
I think I'm going to take the stickers/graphics off my bike.
Regarding the fuel economy of a car running on CNG vs. a Honda 125 deluxe, which one is more economical?
there isnt a major difference between fuel average of deluxe and normal cg 125
same engine architecture and a little bit more weight of deluxe , difference will hardly be 1 to 2 km/liter more on cg then deluxe
thats the luxury deluxe owners get(kick start) and they have to live with it
to ur other problem piaggio also has the constant light like cars , its all speedometer and headlight operates through battery and i love it
coz wen i had 70 cc i always race up the engine at night to see the speedometer , i also have the same habbit like urs
29000 saving means 29000/76=381 litres of fuel
381 litres x 55 km/litre average = 20986 kms of free running
20986/100 (km/day average run) = 209 days of free running.
Now thats amazing saving over honda.
note: i definitely feel it would vibrate may be less than classic but will do so when driven on high speed
"as for why i drew line between areas is that fact that there is a large shop of Piaggio on wahdat road near butt sweets i saw it three days ago. one other reason is its easier access to mc loed road."
"I am a marketer and believe me only thing wrong with ravi is proper segmentation. if some one from Ravi reads this thread do argue with your marketers you should have targeted developed and suburban areas instead of Mc Loed road but thats my thought and i'm open to arguements" this is text book marketing and one fundamental mistake in my opinion

one quick question
tank and other material is it available in market like classic or not i would like to go for more sober look next month.
most of my friends have joked on the green color on the bike (stickering)
