I went out today and had a look at both bikes.
I believe that the authorized dealer for the Piaggio that you were referring to was Al-Furqan traders on Mcleod road. He had the bike in all four colours and was asking 80,000 for it. However, he only had four bikes (one in each colour) and they all looked a little roughed up. Not necessarily because he was trying to pass off used bikes as new, but because of product placement.
One bike had been sitting on the main road (literally), another one was on the foot path and two were inside the shop. The bike looks great but those four bikes didn't leave me with the impression that they were hot out the oven. Maybe they just needed a wipe down. Dunno. I think he should have kept all bikes inside the shop and been careful with using them as display pieces.
I also queried him about their service centers and he said that a complete list of locations is provided. He mentioned that one of them was just up the road.
I also saw the Honda 125 Deluxe and the Honda CD(i?) 100. Both looked really great. I was actually surprised because I had written off Honda from the get go. The bikes actually looked to be built of superior quality material. That is just how I felt. I am not a motorbike expert.
Seriously, if you guys had 108,000, and you wanted to make one long term purchase, what bike would you go for?
