I was running out of time, so I felt to create this new thread to get a quick feel of fellow TAI
members on my new bike decision
After reading some 1000 reviews by now, I decided the following
My height 5'10"
Requirement - new 100/110/125cc bike
Mileage - decent
Reliability - should be good
Long term usage - 5+ years
Specific things required - good seating position, low engine noise and refined, good built quality and fit, reliable company, no rattlings, very good suspension, should be a budget one.
Budget - Max 60000/-
After lot of Test drives and visits to show rooms, I have narrowed down to the following
Honda Shine - A proven horse
Honda Dream Yuga - New entrant from Honda with 110cc and found good any every thing
Bajaj Discover 100 4g - Good in everything, but doubts on reliability in long term usage, rattlings, Bajaj bad service, cheap built, but price and mileage was attractive
Hero - All old boring models and with thin tyres, some how not convinced when I look at their bare hero emblem
Yamaha - No such good bike in that cc segment, SS125,SZ-S/R looks be heavy to hold and out of budget and pathetic Yamaha service
TVS - Not very reliable for long term usage and less resale value
Suzuki - Do not want to touch after burning with Slingshot
I hope I covered everything and really looking for your advise to choose from Honda and any other great one if I missed out !!
I need to buy one on 1/8/2012,so quickly give your opinions
