I have just shifted from karachi to lahore and i need to buy a bike asap for daily day travelling. I am stuck between ravi and Suzuki 150 as i am not aware of the market dynamics in Lahore. I owned both Suzuki GS150 and Ravi Piaggio in karachi and i faced the following issues :
1) With GS 150 i always found its brakes to be below average and its skinny tires not providing enough grip in slippery conditions.
2) With Ravi every thing was perfect except lack of its spare parts issue in karachi , yes i know you don't need engine parts on a daily basis but its cosmetic parts are the ones you need more often as majority of the mechanics and general public handling in open parking's will cause them to break. I sold my beloved Piaggio in karachi after getting irritated with broken cosmetic parts and temporarily gluing them again and again:(.
If Ravi spare parts is not an issue in Lahore i would definitely buy Ravi but if its not the case then i would have to opt for Suzuki provided i can get a disk brake and some reasonable tires installed .
My travelling would be around 60 km per day as my office is in gulberg 2 and im most probably be shifting to bahria town so you all can get an idea that i need comfort and hassle free travelling.
Any help full advice (specially from piaggio owners) is badly needed and will be appreciated .
(Its a humble request to all Honda lovers please don't suggest to buy a CG-125 as i owned a cg as well but my choice is limited to GS150 and Piaggio)
