Yar pridor is a good choice but no one likes a downgrade in displacement..FOr a daily 150km trip 125 and above cc displacement is recommended as they can sustain 90 km/hr speeds with ease..Pridor is a comfort ace in Honda's lineup not even CG can match its comfort..I would recommend you to buy a new or used GS 150/Piaggio as it fits your routine bolt on.
There is no bike in 100cc category that matches Pridor in comfort.I am 6 feet tall and it compliments my height
You can ride a pridor continuously @ speeds of 80Km/hr.If you are ok with that then i see no reason in not buying it
But still for long distance 125cc is a bare minimum for hassle free easy commutes
- How is this bike when specially comes to ride as my daily routine mileage is 150kms
Havent tried 150 kms but my longest trip was 80 Kms.The bike does not tire you out and is very comfortable
- Fuel Gauge, can I get that option by installing previous CD-100 fuel tank and speedo meter
It is possible but not recommended.It will spoil Pridor looks as there is 10/20% variation of aesthetics b/w pridor and cd-100's tank.Pridor is a fuel efficient bike the conventional reserve will bode well for you as it gives me 50+ avg on speeds of 60-65 km/hr..Just make sure you have enough fuel.The 800ml reserve is good for another 35-40 kilometers.
- Replace its rear tyre with 90/90-18 for better grip
I am riding it on stock 2.75 service tyre.The bike does not require an upgrade wrt tyre tread/rims.Bike performs well on stock tyres.People change the tyre tread for superstitious mental satisfaction(in case of pridor)
- Handle grips and the handle itself replacement
Pridor's handle is designed for a conventional straight up position.By installing clip ons you will have to let go comfort for sporty looks(strained wrists @ long journeys and you will tire out soon).Stock handle is perfectly O.K
- HID installation, because it has poor visibility!!
Well HID is an option for nights,but it has a detrimental effect on incoming traffic,Replace the headlight bulb with a high wattage imported 1.
- Any other pre cautions ?
Has low bending ratio.So be careful at corners.Do not treat it like a 70 :p.
- or should I used public transport instead of buying it
A motorcycle>Car>Public transport for within city commutes.
Agar app pindi main hotay to meri bike lay jatay aik haftay k liae try kartay phr apna decision letay..I would still advise you to try out pridor extensively before buying(kisi dost k pass to hogi)
Agar family walay 100cc say upar nai janay day rahay to GD-110 try kar lein..Its good when it comes to power and speed but as you are 6'5 dadoo lago ga uspay.its a chuni bike
