Moreover, with your experience with bikes, how would you compare this with deluxe or GS125 (not saying 150 to stick to a category)? You had a GS150 if I am not wrong, how are the front brakes and what made you sell it off?
Well, 1st thing is that if they r even importing some parts (as many top co.s in Pak import Chinese parts but 4 a few parts like Carb they stick 2 Japan) from china n the specs n standards (the most important thing) r 100% as per given by Piaggio Italy then I think no 1 shd hav any concern.
And if it is so, then my views r:
This bike has a blend of style, power, a good biking experience etc etc. I have driven a dlux but consider this only for 1- style, 2-disc brake bcoz it lacks power as per its weight etc etc., and old ngine like CG125, above all fuel economy as compared 2 Storm.
I hav a GS with me n consider this for 1-weight/grip, 2- powerful ngine, 3- ngine of max Japanese parts, 4- a good biking experience. But lacks style (not that much like a CG125), and now the new model is lacking again many attractive things of GS, above all fuel economy as compared 2 Storm.
SO U CAN SAY STORM HAS MANY THINGS, AND IF IT HAS POWER HOUSE LIKE A GS THEN I DON THINK V SHLD LEAVE THIS OPTION, IN STYLE ITS ABOVE ALL, CHECK A FEW THINGS (TANK COVER/OPENER E.G.,), IT GR8 IN STYLE, HANDLING (I THINK), AND PERFORMANCE. N IF THEIR STANDARD IS ITALIAN (NO MATTER PARTS R CHINESE MADE, EVEN THEN CARB WIL B ITALIAN) I DO THINK IT CAN B A FLOP, 1 WILL HAV 2 BUY IF HE IS A TRUE BIKER (NOT WHEEER) N KNOWS A GOOD BIKE.
N y me selling: bro, I belive that I shld change with time. No serious issue, the pleasure I hav got is not less than of ma GTO125.
IF PARTS R Italian standard then wat do u say? If they r as strong as Italian then wat do usay? Don make this an issue when every big co. is getting manufacturing done from China.
N belive me I think if they import 100% bik from italy u ll not pay them n prefer 2 buy a car.
N 1 more thing standard, is wat u guys set?
Don u think that the stanrad of a 125 is same as they were b4 10 to 15 years? U r buying the low stanrdard n accepting low standard n so they r giving u.
N all plz understand MAX PARTS IN MAX TYOP BIKES R CHINESE NOW OK?
Max Carbs r Japanese
Plz understand this.
Do not degrade this storm n upgreade ur 125 or gs or anything
