    List of GS150R owners

    GS150R owners list

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ok Guys finally got my baby today, and hence this thread. I hope to see quite a few people here owning this worthy machine by Suzuki. I have been following with xbhp and other reviews for a long time to make a decission and xbhp really helped me to choose wisely.

    It was a gruesome decisions as I was really confused between various offerings, following is my story....

    First of all let tell you the foremost reasons I was looking for in a bike.....

    The top most was : Ride comfort, smoothness and driving pleasure

    2. Decent Millage 45-50
    3. Decent Power, pickup and last
    4. Techno Equipped

    Following were the contenders in no specific order

    1. CBZ-X
    2. Apachie RTR
    3. Unicorn
    4. Pulsar 150
    5. FZ16
    6. Suzuki GS150R

    Out of the above I was almost sure not to go for P150 as it is too common a bike and I did not find the ride comfort at all specially at high speed, for the rest 5.........following is my personal experience.

    1. CBZ-X : Was the most ordinary in looks. Even the new CBZ-X with a gradient shade over black and better style handle was just ok in looks. But CBZ was a prime contender when it came to ride comfort. Despite of ordinary looks and no GAS shockers CBZ-X was giving utter smoothness at 60-70 mark. Pick up was decent and it was perfect for my sitting posture as well.

    2. RTR :now this bike has created huge ballyhoo and hoopla among bike lovers for its shear power and pickup and I wanted to
    have a good test drive for atleast this bike. Thankfully the sales person at showroom in Ghz was cool enough to let me have a long drive and that to alone, so off I went with RTR (FI was out of question as it was very expensive....72000)...so off I went with RTR and the very first impression was.....this bike has the most peppy pickup of the lot......remember RX100,
    something like that (though RX100 would still beat the crap out of RTR in 0-60 Pickup) anyway awsome pickup at 1st and 2nd, 3rd was ok
    4th and 5th... decent, but trust me after taking a good ride I felt this bike is bit over hyped (now dont you RTR fans come bashing at me.....personal opinion....:-) ) No doubt it was good but........is power the only thing you look for........may be for some.......but for me RTRs comfort level should be under some serious questioning........
    The very first very noticeable glitch were the vibrations, I was clearly feeling them at high speeds (and I hate vibrations)
    Second is the awkward sitting posture,..... To give a sports like appeal, designers have given a sitting posture very much like a 500CC racing bike, (you lean forward quite a bit) good for couple of dashes but not at all comfortable even for some small long rides. Maybe it was intended for a different target audience.......not for me. :-)

    3. Unicorn : I loved this bike, but the only reason I held back from this one was similar to P150.... too old and common and
    I was getting better ride comfort from the latest in the market.. :-)

    4. FZ16 : Another bike that has created big..... I mean BIG ripples among bike lovers and I seriously hope it lives up to its expectations. If you ask me Yamaha I guess have completely concentrated over how the bike looks and less on how well it should perform, and I do agree we have a huge percentage of bike lovers who would simply go for looks and would compromise on the rest..... specially 16-25 age segment.....A couple of oohhs and aaahs from girls and a complete knockout posture with "gaugs" and gals cuddling with you on this beauty looking machine is ALL youngsters would want....... and FZ16 fully justifies this reason....... sadly I did not feel bike performance as justified as the looks. Here is my take......very good pickup for 1st and 2nd gear, only second to RTR but looses out badly in all rest transmissions. A practical example.....While on test run......I was driving like on 45 and ahead of me was a truck which was on 65 may be 70. I wanted to overtake it with a
    varoom punch....you know what I mean and to my surprise when I pumped the throttle the bike just dragged from 45 to 70,......... :-( no body was coming from the opposite side else I wouldnt have been able to overtake..........which I did eventually but it defeated the very purpose of overtaking on highways........I was disappointed.....poor 3rd and 4th shifts.......average ride comfort and Vibrations.....less than RTR but still more than CBZ-X.

    5. Suzuki GS150R Now coming to this dream machine........First of all few professional snaps and small overview of the specifications








    I will post real live images very soon.

    Suzuki GS150R was almost perfect in everything, top class ride comfort, engine extremely refined, better than Unicorn at high speeds, below 60 there was no difference between Unicorn CBZX and GSR but at high speeds things were different. Engine sound at stand still neutral and below 60 was best (by best I mean least and refined) in CBZX, at high speed not much of a
    difference between UNI and GSR but GSR ride smoothness above 60 was impeccable, absolute butter, and I was blown away from GSR's 3rd gear variance or scope and pickup, 40 to 70 was a pleasure and even 70-95 was effortless (which quite lacked in FZ16 that I mentioned before) I could not go beyond 95. But I could feel the bike would easily do 115. I will test its limits
    after the 1st service. So ride comfort was not at all a problem....my prime critaria met.
    Then came the power, what else can I say better than FZ16 and CBZ, atleast in mid range speed bracket. less than RTR ofcourse.....I am not sure about P150. UNI does not even come in to the picture.
    Milage 55-60 is what is claimed....I will verify that after a couple of weeks, but heck even if its like 50-55 what else can we expect from a 150CC bike. My Ambition used to struggle to give 45-50 with 135CC engine.
    So milage criteria was met as well. Last was the Techno Equipped and GSR does not fail even in that. Best console I have seen in the current bikes.



    Comes with a neat digital speedometer and a shift over to two modes namely Power and Eco mode. Technically I don't think they have done anything to differentiate except that in ECO mode if you pull the throttle there is a controlled fuel flow and you wont get a peppy pickup at all gear shifts and there is an indicator that would let you know the best time to shift the gear.
    This would obviously save fuel and you would not get a varoom pick. Power mode has no such indication and fuel flows with it full capacity. Apart from that, console displays fuel level, trip meter, time, and gear position. RPM indicator is kept analog which adds to the impressive design.

    I think I have covered almost all aspects of the bike, and have given a decent comparision as well. As I said I will soon

    post some of my personal pics as well,and would keep updating the thread as and when Km increases...... till then any

    questions queries from people interested in this bike are most welcomed

    Regards
    Sammy

    Thumbs up

    Congrats Sammy , I think you made a good decision.

    Do post on how is the bikes suspension / handling / engine heating etc.

    I too felt FZ was not good at 3rd and 4th...the pick up or even the tourqe. Couldnt make out much differece from any of the other 150's, not sure if it was problem with the bike I took test drive. But its fun riding/handling in small twisty street roads.

    Have Fun.. Ride Safe Do post some pics too .

    Congratulations....

    I read in your review that you went upto 95 kmph, its not good to rev new motor this hard atleast till first 1000 kms.

    Finally a bike has come up to beat our beloved Unicorn, it will be interesting to see Honda's reply on this.
