a week earlier i bought new gs150 in metalic color paid 114500 pkr,
previously own 2010 model in red color but my nephew liked it so have to gift that 1 to him.
i compared the previous model with newer 1 and this is what i found.
1) better rear light
2) carrier at rear.
3) euro 2 device
4) softer seat
apart from this nothing new all same.
same issues found which where present in 2010 model.
1) plug coil underneath fuel tank have poor clips
2) poor front and rear brakes adjustment
3) same slim rear tire.
4) faulty speedo meter cable
frankly i didn't find any thing else wrong with the bike.
all these problem where solved within hours of taking the delivery of the bike. how? because i know what problem are there in this bike.
also told suzuki reps abt this but according to them bike come from factory like this and they sell them exactly like this.
i agree with all of u that suzuki should keep good eye on their assembly line.
i am not a fast rider but some time i do ride fast.
front and rear brake are easily fixable u just need a good mechanic to fix them for u, mine works like charm.
reason behind this all talk is to me i still find it cheap and effective bike which can run for longer time without any problem if we just take little care abt it.
every day i see lots and lots of rider here in karachi doing circus on road, guys with hids but with fused tail light, without turn signals, without brake light, without rear view mirrors, riding on fast tract with complete family of 4 kids and a wife on speed of snail,
most importantly without helmets.
people just don't like to spend on important stuff but will go for altering the bike engine in order to beat other rider on the road.
this not only seen on old bike but in fact on new bikes too.
so do suzuki see or any other bike manufacturing company see people in pakistan care abt safety on bike, BIG NO.
so why should they bother improving their items.
once i went to buy new car and i ask do u have air bags in it and they said no sir we have abs in this car but our top of the line variant do have air bags, so i asked do u think person driving in this car have lesser value of the life compare to person riding in top variant and believe me they said if u care abt yr life so much buy top variant. damm
i went and bought my self a used jdm.
take care and kind regards
