Most of these small displacement bikes in UAE are imported from India and Philippines. The one i rode was with carb. And we are going to get the same model but with some bells and whistles. Performance of these bikes is not the main concern because these bikes are designed for one purpose only that is Urban Commute. This model has enough punch in mid level revs that it can easily cut through traffic and take the rider from point A to point B. The main concern is rider's comfort and the features we never got before with reliable after sales service.
Ride a CG 125 for 100 miles and then take the return trip on a Ravi 125 or Suzuki GD110. You will know that riding position and comfort will be more important than acceleration and top speed. These bikes are designed to travel at 70-80kmph max. but people here push their bikes is pursuit of speed.
YBR 125 may not be as quick as CG125 but it certainly clicks all the right buttons for its class. It is more comfortable than CG125, more modern and stable. CG125 is a reliable platform but it was designed in 70s and thanks to AHL nothing has changed since. Major upgrade in CG125 was in 1992 when the engine was upgraded to CDI system. Other cosmetic changes dont count. YBR125 is a major leap forward for Pakistani riders.
