    Arslan check out both bikes in showroom inspect calmly & take final decision
    what you feel is best for you and suits your requirement & needs
    Yamaha YBR125 is all about style an complete modern bike with all features
    on the other hand GS150 is the most powerful bike engine wise looks are not
    attractive and quality of Suzuki is not good as well but its definitely gives you
    more power as compare to YBR

    Regarding maintenance both these bikes needs sensible mechanics hands

    I will go for YBR, its modern & fresh with good quality as well
    but i will prepare my mind for its performance there are many
    users who reported & my personal experience with two ybr's
    of friend's this bike has top speed 100km/h don't expect 100+ easily

    GS150 engine is very good but rest parts are of low quality and
    many cases has been reported for its poor quality

    Hmm bro I have seen some people who have clocked 125 km/hr.... maybe ybr 125's some models are underpowered but not all...

    And yeah GS 150's parts can be a big headache

    amjad dont you think gs 150 is easy to maintain than ybr?
    as parts are expensive, if someone who is willing to keep it for more than 2 years he will face issue

    Although both bikes are very different but in the given situation I would go for YBR because by sacrificing extra 25cc I am getting overall a better package, better quality and a lot of goodies.

    In my opinion GS does not deserve its price tag just like Suzuki Mehran. If the price would be lower then it will be fine.

    I think YBR justify the price tag for what it is offering as a complete package as compare to GS package.

    Hope that helps.

    Default 125 or 150

    hi
    if you travels more in the City and short lengths under 30km Go for YBR125, if above then 30km then go for YBR G and if Longgg then go for Suzuki 150.

    what i'v found that you personally liked the YBR (looks comfort etc etc) but you want the engine power of Suzuki 150.

    so go as above mention or wait like me for the Yamaha 150.

    I have GS 150 and my friend bought YBR after selling his GS. He gave me his YBR for a week for testing because I was too thinking of buying one. Not only I dropped my plan of buying YBR but my friend is buying GS again. YBR is a good bike but IMO, very underpowered. It did go to 110 km/h but it takes a while and the acceleration and torque just isn't there. GS has massive mid range power and is much much more fun to ride. Parts are cheap too. The only good thing in YBR was the disc brake. YBR's quality is better as well but comes at a steep price. Comfortability wise both are almost same. GS is just a much more joy to ride.

    @arsalan_1

    For what I know there will be no 150cc until the 2017 and 2018. YBR-Z 125cc (simple classic version) is expected in the mid/end of 2016 or in the beginning of 2017.

    Btw YBR and YBR-G I would pick G variant.
