    Default Honda CG 125 Euro 2 OR Suzuki GS 150 ?

    To be honest I love the way A Honda Vrooms off the asphalt, but then again I don't like seeing tail lights too much, only in my rear view, if you know what I mean ....
    So can you guys assess the pros and cons of both these bikes, those who have actually seen how these two NEW models (2012) perform .
    How is the pick, sound and top speed, build quality of the new Euro 2 machine, any improvements, or draw backs, if any ?
    And although I have never owned a GS 150 but I really am in the mood to own one, I'd like to know about similar features regarding this machine as well, rumour has it that the breaks aren't all that great (true ?), plus the 411 on GOOD MECHANIC AVAILABILITY within ISLAMABAD CITY.
    Your Time and Opinions are always appreciated,

    Regard,
    Khan .

    Brother Gul, you are a blessing for me man!! Yohoo Bless you mate How about checking up if self start can be added to it? Only an electrical Engineer can provide an expert advice about it. I am repeatedly asking it because I prefer assigning simple repetitive tasks to automation - make life lot easier.

    Brother Gul, your opinion please.

    Kind regards

    I've seen a man who got self start installed in his CG125 Classic. It was a restored Pointer 80s model...

    Installing self start in deluxe won't be a big issue then

I would recommend that you go for GS150 as it has self start and most powerful engine available with local bike manufacturers. You can then put on things like disk, handle lock (in ignition) and fuel gauge.
    Can you post the pictures of the Fuel Gauge you have installed and its price . Also the price disk brake setup.

    Bro ​Gul, although I am still couple of weeks away from making final purchase; I want to utilize this interim period for data / resource alignment for my would-be new purchase. Kindly advise me on "nips & tucks" for the new Honda CG 125 Deluxe. From "nips & tucks" I mean improved alloy rims & tyres (size and country of origin?) Reliable dealer in R.Pindi / Isloo (if known?) Any advice regarding Company fitted spark plug? Or any thing that comes to your mind like engine oils etc, I shall be obliged.

    1. Good & Tireless Runner - should not get tired of running at high speed in traffic on a hot day
    2. Good Quality Manufacturing
    3. Fuel Economy
    4. Bike with Height (as I am heavy and tall - my pillion rider too; both 6 feet and each around 110 kgs)
    5. Comfortable Seat (both driver and pillion rider)
    6. Comfortable Stable Drive
    7. Self Start
    8. Handle Lock placed at ignition
    9. Fuel Gauge in speedometer
    10. Low noise levels
    11. Disk Brakes
    12. Complete After Sales Service
    13. Universal Availability of Genuine Spare Parts
    14. Universal Availability of Qualified Mechanics

    SUZUKI GS150 does not fulfill my needs listed at serials 2, 5, 6, 8,11, 12, 13 & 14. Now that is 57% less fulfilment of my NEEDS - that too at a dearer price!!! If we assign value to my list of NEEDS then I find SUZUKI GS150 missing critical needs. That means the value of difference ratio of 57% gets compounded!! (Mind you, I have not included resale aspect in this analysis!!!)

    I believe cost benefit ratio will creep towards equilibrium if SUZUKI drops GS150 price by same percentage. That seems unlikely. Therefore, this product seems to have become a liability - even for SUZUKI​. These calculations are for my personal use only. However, since you all are contributing with sincerity and empathy therefore, I felt it imperative to share my workings with you good lot as well Please see that results will be different for every person because of our unique preferences.

    I tend to go with bhai Gul Sb. as he has actually used a product and has first hand experience. However, I keep every opinion in high regard. Many thanks again.

    Kind regards
    M
    @poster: except point # 8 and 9, gs150 full fill all yr requirments. so it means its already 80% of yr given list .
    point # 11 only if u really ride on high speed all the time other wise bike brakes are not bad upto 80-90km/hr

    i believe u have riden only 70cc bike till now and u are new to 125cc + bikes, so bro be prepared to have deeper pocket for such bikes.

    why dont u look for a well built honda cd185 or cd200 twin, convert it to cdi 12v and u got a excellent bike for yr self.

    kind regards
    Help others so that u can be Helped

    Alloy rims are heavier and will cause noticeable reduction in bike's performance, so not advisable. Deluxe comes with proper size tyres already, so no need to change the tyres also. I am riding it on stock tyres, and don't feel the need of bigger tyres.
    Engine oil is still a mystery the more you discuss, the more you get confused. So use any engine oil you like, just keep changing it at 1000Km interval and it should be fine.

    Brother Gul, many thanks for your prompt participation. Here are two pence from my side regarding engine oils & lubricants. I have experienced following oils useful: -
    1. LIQUI MOLY (LM) - (German) - Available from LM authorized distributors in I-8, Isloo
    2. Mobil - (USA) - Available from Mobil authorized dealers in I-10, Isloo
    3. Havoline - Now a well established and well reputed brand in Pakistan
    4. ZIC - Another good name
    5. Remaining oils & lube brands in Pakistan

    Each oil has different grades to be used according to weather as well as engine condition. Newer engines will need thinner oil where as older engines are better treated with thicker oils. Hotter weathers require higher SAE numbers (as those are thicker.) And vice versa for colder weathers.

    Kind regards

    Dear Brother Archon, many thanks for an important reminder regarding fuel economy. However, our Pakistani manufacturers have yet to begin offering custom built bikes. Therefore, I will have to bear greater fuel expense - but for me time to market is important. That means greater speed with added load. So I had no other option available therefore, I accepted a little compromise for now.

    Nop to see the reality go to the Pak suzuki self managed showroom in rawalpindi and see the newly purchased bike standing in line awaiting to be fixed in warranty claims. believe me even the mechanic was frustrated that too much bad quality as soon as the suzuki got grip in the city auto market mostly engine and handle column problem a very cheap quality for a very costly bike. i own a gs 150 2012 and i regret it fully, it was good in long ride and fuel average but now after a year its feels like gonna fall apart in the middle of the road worse paint quality now the rust is visible in major section of the frame. Those who are willing to buy GS 150 , please don't or you'll suffer i thought i was the unlucky one but then i realized i am just one in hundreds who are in more pain then i am. and there are no mechanics for this bike. bike is still good in speed and pickup good fuel average but everything else ... well don't wanna use curse words. cheapest quality then a local made bikes or may be even worse.

    One more thing i'll add here, GS has engine type OHC (Over Head Camshaft) which requires more maintenance then CG which is OHV (Over Head Valve) . in Pakistan you can see only OHV can be successful. its easy and requires less maintenance.

    Sell your gs and buy a honda cg125 the solution is simple.
