One thing which i learned after A LOT of time ... is the FACT that Atlas Honda is providing us with bikes which can run in Every Condition. Can't say the same for a CD-70, but lets just talk from a 125cc's perspective.
Both the Classic and Deluxe ... dont you think they REALLY are offering you the best bikes for a middle class person, which are able to run well in every weather condition and almost every terrain without giving you much trouble, especially regarding engine?
Okay so they are not cheap. But they do have their valid reasons to charge you more ... i.e. Their Quality is still much better than other bikes available in Pakistan.
As for this Deluxe changed... MARK MY WORDS. This wont even move to a change in upcoming 10 years or so.
Police people here have mere 125cc and 250cc. Dont event think for a second they will make bikes upto 125cc which would be able to beat these police walas.
Bhool gaye wo waqt jab Govt. CG-125's ki production per BAN Laga rahi thi?
This so called "new" Deluxe is no different.
However i still consider this one helluva ride for a middle class person. But ofcourse, its not "Value for Money" and it certainly isn't cheap.
They CANNOT change classic. Its famous for a very good reason ... its Classic Look and its Acceleration. Making a change in ANYTHING will drop its sales and might improve the sale of Deluxe.
