O bhaiyo. Relax. You are doing exactly what i am babbling against. Criticizing ONE thing and tagging other as fine. The issues you are describing are also present in AHL's products as well. Yes i do fully agree on the point that AHL's network is widespread due to which it definitely has a upper hand on it. But from where i see it, you are never going to move forward with this attitude. And i bet you that AHL's monopoloy will NEVER be able to break this way.
As for me, i am done with supporting AHL, even with all of its advantages. I'd gladly accept other bike's issues if it gives me a satisfaction for NOT supporting AHL. You know why? Because even supporting AHL and its products HAS NOT kept me from general zalalat with its products.
As for buying a Piaggio, i have mentioned it before and i am mentioning it again. If i were to buy a new bike (if i could), i would've done that long ago. AND if I were to purchase a new bike for any of my siblings, it'll most certainly be a Piaggio.
Oh and thanks for the offer @angel82, but I'll pass.
There are lot of people who purchased GS150, spend a little more money on solving its issues and now they are like "living happily ever after". Before you bring in the argument "its a brand new bike, i just spend 1 Lac on it and i shouldn't need to spend more" then i hate to pop the cherry but EVERY new bike today (even if its AHL's product) require that ... in the form of new tyres and rims. Ofcourse not changing them will still work okay, but then it'll also hold true for the other instance i mentioned.
