glamour and yamaha gladi are good looking bikes, didnt wanted to spoil them by adding a side box!!! (side box is a very important requirement for me)

the thought of disk break came into my mind because i shall be driving the bike at around 60 to 80 kmph constantly. but dont mind it any more.

Atlast I feel that suzuki heat is my pick. Didnt find any other vehicle which has better VFM, considering its a 125cc, good torque and a 5-speed tranny. also the side box looks good with this one.

P.S. talking about side box, i think the only other bike i can think about is super splendor or a used Avenger!!!. Met a guy who is a friend of my friend, he works for a vehicle recovery company which seizes the two wheelers of the guys who dont pay their EMI's just got to know that three weeks ago he sold of a 6 month old karizma for 51,000/-!!!, shall see if i could get a avenger less than a year and around 40k. Its going to be a bit high on my pocket on the FE side, but its an avenger!!!.....(already drooling over it)

As I am mainly looking for a 125cc bike. How do you guys rate yamaha enticer when compared to the above mentioned 125cc bikes. I know it is a cruiser style and also i have to buy a used, if i have to buy it. But I would like to know is it a good bike. It suits all my requirements.

As I have never driven a yamaha enticer, i would like to know the seating comfort. I am 6' 2'' tall and average built. I guess the seating will be slightly better than eliminator or avenger, because it has more height than them and also being of shorter wheel-base, it would be easier to drive in the city.

Also I would like to know about the after sales service and the availability of the parts for yamaha enticer.

In that case I don't think it will suit you. I find it quite cramped and I am 5'11".

Raj, as discussed last evening that you plan to commute daily 65km-70km so average and comfort would be the most important parameters. Hence, choose any of the good known bikes from HH stable ( like Passion Plus, Splendour + etc). It covers both these important parameters including the service parameter ( which is quite widespread and pretty decent) that you seem so concerened about.

Avenger, Enticer are cruisers and cannot meet your daily commute requirements.

I have not really used the cruisers much, but i always thought they are more comfortable for long drives.

May be they are a little bit of a pain in the city stop and go traffic! An enticer/avenger owner's feedback may help!

I did not think the reasoning behind disk brake not required for 125CC is correct. Dude, its very essential and for people who are used to it, drums just dont do. The dealerships might be under pressure to get rid of Suzuki Heat from showrooms since they hardly sell. IMO, the best suiting bike for you would be Suzuki Zeus and Super Splendour from HH. Zeus is better for highways since it comes with 5 gears.

yes buddy, was planning for the avenger initially, but decided against it after a test drive. i found only one problem, the rear break wasnt easy for me.

yes, suzuki zeus is the bike, I have finally decided upon. The need for a 5th gear was much felt on a trip to ananthagiri hills(total 180kms trip) with a biker group while I was driving a ind-suzuki.(2 stroke 100cc)

funally, bought suzuki zeus on 12th. Its grey-sliver metallic dual tone limited edition version costed me 45,600/- . it comes with out electric start and alloys!!!!, whats so limited about it ... well its just the color combination. Well thats the only reason i bought it. but had to pay 2000/- extra.

went to buy the basic model for 43,500/- with drum brake, ended up buying the one with the disc brake option as well. just for the sake of the color.

there is nothing much to write about it as a great vehicle. (will upgrade further a year later to karizma) only special thing is its a limited edition. Anyways, will post a detailed review on it later in the evening.
