    Default Piaggio storm, Honda Delux, Hero Prince, which one?

    I am going to buy a bike which can serve me for long distances like 200 km which I have to cover fortnightly. As I am acquiring it from CSD, above are the available choices. Which one should I go for if I need a sound ride?

    I think deluxe would be a good option given the three. I have not had the pleasure of riding a RP so I cannot say anything about its comfort factor. But considering the long journey you have to cover, the bike would need a bit high level of maintenance and Deluxe would have parts available easily along your route.
    In the end, it all ends on what are you willing to compromise on. I just made a small 100 km trip today in the morning cold. Had my trustworthy GS150. My bumm was not tired at all. Had a 70 and a AHL125 before it and I know what torture it can be on the long drive. My downside is that in the rush of city traffic, the longer wheel base and the weight makes it not that maneuverable compared to other bikes.

    Thanx Saad...obviously comfort is the first priority. Frankly I m more inclined towards piaagio because of features and sporty look but I don't now how durable its engine is..I am not much fond of sudden accelerations.

    Comfort? Engine durability?

    stay away from hero shero buy deluxe its spare parts are easily available in cities
    ravi piaggio is good bike but no after sales service so if you gonna keep it like baby
    than buy it. engine from experience of its users here at pw its engine is durable

    my bottom line is out of three deluxe is good option

    if you can think about other bikes than there is good option of GD110S too
    its very expensive bike but would be really comfortable to drive its 110cc
    but you can expect very good power from it bike is silent & smooth
    so if you don't like noisy bikes than its good option for you

    and there is another bike honda pridor very good bike for comfort & smooth
    riding experience costs significant less as compare to deluxe & storm

    Dear Amjad brother, Thanks for your valueable advice. I already have Pridor. In my opinion Pridor is a comfortable choice for local use. But travelling 150 or 200 km is like killing it. However one of my friends is asking me to wait for Yamha. God knows when this Yamaha is coming!!

    Honda Deluxe, Durable and good option
    as myself using it on daily basis covering 110kms daily for the university using highway and the tutor inside the city, no issue at all reliable economical and perfect after sale services each and every part available mechanics available so its the best option out there. Please don't waste your money on PRINCE or other chinese
    Ravi Piaggio has just one flaw no parts at all no after sale services and no re sale value
    @for others giving various options CSD doesn't offer Suzuki or other bikes

    if you can pass 6,7 months more with your pridor than wait
    news regarding yamaha bikes launch is pretty strong but still
    i can't 100% confirm so depends on you if pridor is no more bearable
    for you than change the bike and enjoy your new ride as waiting is also difficult
