  2. I THINK IT HAVE NOTHING AT COMPARE TO YAMAHA FZ-16 AND TVS APACHE RTR …..
    LOOKINGWISE ITS SO ODD……..
    I AM NOT AGREE WITH THIS GSR150

    Lol Rounak,

    When you say “it have nothing” no one is even going to read your post!

    And who are you that people will consider your opinion??

    So what if you say “I am not agree”, of course you are not agree, you are rounak!

  4. Hi Pramod, I strongly agree with you. You cannot compare FZ with Suzuki Gs 150. Suzuki GS 150 does have a good pickup , 6 gears, very good and smooth Engine and Gear box. Good shox, Good LCD meter and good Back Break lights and Indicator.
    Its an All rounder. Where as Fz lacks in pickup, mileage and its not at all a family vehicle. In looks no other bikes can beat FZ.

    But You cannot purchase a vehicle just for the looks.
    Suzuki is known for their Engine and gear box quality which is main for any bike.

    Thanks.

  5. we are looking to purchase a new bike we have shortlist two bikes fz s & suzuki gs 150 we want a performance oriented bike what will you recommend

  6. Hi shakeel, both the bikes are performance oriented bikes. If you are a family person and drive with a pillion. Then the GS would be better. Its comfortable for both driver and pillion. Even the FZ digital speedo looks like a toy meter. too small and not visible properly. I hate the Front number plates too. They could have given an LED brake lights too. I liked the look of FZ and the fat tyre.
    If you see the GS on road even the pulsars looks smaller. Wait for more GS to come on road. You will know the difference.

  7. Simply blaming the GS is not a good idea.Suzuki is always known for its durable engine. FZ is looks like a sporty bike.Riding comfort is less.Hunk milege is nearly 40kmpl, my brother has got one hunk.Appache & pulsar no engine durability.Presenly unicorn is very good in 150 CC categary.Smooth engine and good milege. Only suzuki GS can challenge unicorn because it has got silky engine,good milege and overall a cute meter console.Sure all can see more GS on road like Suzuki access replaced Honda activa.

    Hi Aravind, If you are considering a smooth engine and a very good riding comfort. I would suggest you to buy a Unicorn or a GS 150. Both the engines are very smooth and riding comfort is too good.
    Apache is like a sports bike. It has good power but no riding comfort. you have to lean a bit front. hence back aches will occur. Lots of vibrations and engine is not that good.

    I own a GS and an Access. I have rode the GS150 for about 2050 kms. Even finished second service. The bike is very comfortable to ride. It should suit you. Test ride both bikes and check yourself.
    Suzuki are known for their comfort and durability. The enginee too should be good as I have owned a Suzuki Samurai for almost 11 years. I have also rode Fiero of my friends.

  10. hi Frnd..My name is vicky…i lve in ahmedabad…i want to buy a 150cc bike and after doing a bit research i have found hunk unicorn and GS150 R as the suitable ones….but am confused amongst the above three….as written above suzuki is the best bike but being a foreign company will i b facing ne problem regarding parts availability and servicing in future??? hero honda is best known for its after sales service….for me after sales service is as important as features….could u plz guide me as to which bike will b most suitable….

  23. Hi People,

    I would suggest SuzukiGS150R as one of the best bike in its class, price and power. Yes i agree it does not have instant pickup but as soon as you are on the way.You go smoothly on the hispeed (thisis same as like Royal enfield). Very good option for who want Style ,comfort, value for money, and ofcourse with Suzuki-NO PROBLEM.

    Pratap
