Best current buys in new MCs


The Sly Fox

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in some opinions on best value MCs at the present time. Something around 125cc, under 50K Bt. To be used mostly by average sized TG but sometimes by me (big assed farang) no long distances as I have a car, so it'll be mostly short trips.

 

auto Vs semi-auto Vs man? What are the main points I need to consider when shopping around?

 

Alternatively does anyone know a site along the lines of SiamNewCar where you can see current prices for all models and compare prices & features.

 

Many thanks in advance.

I bought an auto Click 125 for 46,000 baht, the basic wire wheel model. It goes very well, good acceleration and braking but the single shocker makes it a bit "bouncy" on bumpy roads. I find lowering the tyre pressure at the back helps. I am very happy with it but it is a fair bit higher than mates Yamaha MX 125cc so that could be an issue if the thai is small in height.

These past couple days I've been looking around Pattaya MC dealers and I've got to say I'm coming across the shittiest service I've encountered in LOS. The people I find working in these large MC businesses don't give a fuck, and are not interested in answering questions. I walk into a store and see the staff fiddling with their smart phones. There are hundreds of various MCs on display but none have any prices or information on them. So I need to keep asking these disinterested staff...How much is this one? How much is that one? I'm kinda giving up on the idea of buying a new MC and think I'll just hang onto the old one I already have and ride that into the ground.

I've rented Click 125i and found the same jarring ride when going over moderate to large bumps. Then rented one with a YSS shock and the handling was transformed, making the bumps barely noticeable. Overall, a nice bike.

Every hole a goal.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
