Yes all very well....bla bla bla..... so how does it compare with the Wave, we were getting 204-206 mpg when we tested ours when new. We paid 34k baht for that......

 

Different tank that's all....

Uh oh, somebody has been anal enough to check mpg figures on a stepthrough. An underbone. A Wave...:cheesy:

That is tastefully done and the builder has got an eye for good lines. He's done the seat and rear end particularly well, especially when you look at the stock bike.

If I was a 17 y/o Thai kid I would be proud as punch to own a bike looking like that.

I am 64 and would be happy to be seen on one .I wish i had my BMW/R80RT   back again mind ,but it will do for now .

Yes.....totally agree. I've looked and a lot of these that have been customized and this is the best. As you say .....a good eye for lines. When you look at some of the abortions out there that are none the less, the apple of their owners eyes , it makes you wonder how some people instinctively ' have it ' and others who obviously don't. A bit like people here who paint there houses pink and green :bah:

 

Only things I would change  are the red HT lead and the yellow shocks.

Possibly a slightly bigger front mudguard ( 2-3 inches ). The front forks look to have been replaced with upside down ones. Gaitered might work just as well and be cheaper considering it's not going to be that fast.

 

 The second best one I saw was this. Not as good but with a change of exhaust , also nice enough.

This one is up for sale in Chiang Mai. Quite nicely done.

There's another one near me with super-fat tyres which looks quite funky.

This model is only out 2 years or less .

....and?

 

I said I tried one out a couple (a couple is 2) of years ago......when they first came out.

 

I wanted to be impressed, I like the top tank styling, but wasn't. It felt like a bike made in Vietnam and I have ridden over 1,000km and a Vietnamese built Honda, so I know the feeling.

 

On that basis what has this got that the more powerful Stallion hasn't apart from MPG, if that is what you are looking for it has to be a Wave?

 

I always check fuel consumption when I buy a new vehicle, a couple of tankfuls, that's all. Just curious to see how it compares with the published figures. I don't see that as anal....I always thought that was something completely different, but I will bow to your superior knowledge on the subject of "anal" Guzzi.:saai:

You have me beat.  I only got 199 point something when I was running my 110i in.  Annoyed me at the time.

Yes we get it.  If you don't own a big four stroke by some failed European manufacturer you are not a real man.

 

Measure, tweek, fettle, balance.  Fix the stripped threads and oil leaks.  Yada yada

I confess i havent ridden a 113 cc GD  , nor checked its fuel consumption. I wont ride a wave. I once checked the KM/L on a Lifan 200cc x-cross dual-sport under normal road cruising conditions. 42 MK per L. Thats 118 MPG. Interesting , but has little effect on my wealth or buying decision. I mentioned the Stallion as id be tempted to go for this. The modified red flat-tracker / bobber / board racer style looks great. IMO.

Whatever.

Indeed.

 I've never ever known, nor cared, nor checked mpg figures in any vehicle I've ever owned. Inc 2 stroke performance bikes in my youth. It is what it is.

Oh, except one, that was a Jeep Chieftain or summat, either way it was permanent 4WD with a 5.7 litre motor, 3 speed slush box and was so expensive on juice it had to go. Quickly. Well less than 10 mpg, but flooring it was addictive.

 Bikes though, no, mpg figures - who gives a f##k?

  yada yada.

5555 comparing a Stallions with a Suzuki. Nothing ages faster than Stallions. They even look used when they are supposed to be new.

Yes they are different bikes the GD110 is a slow, economical, rather dull, commuter bike, the large  number of Stallions I have seen about look a whole lot of fun with a great soundtrack to match.

 

I made the comparison for one reason, the Suzuki is made in VN and the Stallion also has a Japanese designed engine.

 

When I looked at the GD110 in the show room, it was parked next to a Japanese built Vanvan and the build quality difference was quite apparent.

 

On the subject of mpg, I guess if the benchmark is 10 anything is economical.

Hey, my pollack buddy from Buffalo, NY painted his house an electrifying shade of aqua/turquoise/teal.  He did have a Thai wife, or two.

I resemble that remark.  Interestingly, I was a mechanic at a Suzuki dealership in the US for about a year in the early 70's.  I went to Thailand in 1977 and bought a ... drum roll ... SUZUKI!

>>the Suzuki is made in VN<<

Apparently its made in China under Suzuki supervision .Then each bike is brought to Japan on completion for quality control  .Thats according to that movie clip linked earlier .
