Its a good and truthful comparison. I have planned to buy Glamour PGM FI. When I taken a test drive I feel like driving a 100cc vehicle, pickup and power is less. Shine gives different feel that it smooth and gear shifting is very good and also good pickup but its not good for tall guys.

I have something to say about this ranking. If you keep popularity as one of the factor to determine best bike of the lot then you are compromising with overall quality (built, engine tuning, value for money, after sales service etc). I own an Yamaha SS125 which is very easy to handle, low on maintenance with an average mileage of 63 kmpL.It is 2 years old (19000kms).

I am confused B/w 4 bikes wch one shall I go ?
1) TVS Starcity 110 CC
2) Bajaj Discover 100 T
3) Bajaj Discover 125 ST
4) TVS Phoenix 125
By on 26-06-2013
Go for either Bajaj Discover 125 ST or TVS Phoenix 125.
Both bikes hold their own qualities. If you consider power and performance, I prefer you to choose the Discover 125ST. Well, if you want a newly designed machine, the Phoenix might be you choice.

And just hold on, these two bikes aren't the best in the class. If you could, consider Hero Glamour and Honda CB Shine.

Honda Stunner is the best.. Some say that Hero Igntor beats Honda stunner.. Surely, they gets bribe frm Hero( a bloody bicycle compay).. Hero just tries to follow the footstep of Honda.. But never succeds...

125cc mean commuter class bikes.. Honda stunner, ignitor and 125st bajaj got a better engine 'performance than its peers' mentioned above.. But I would say its the Honda shine that easily outshines in terms of complete package bike.. Good mileage and smooth tough engine..economical and was to maintain than any..don't jus trust me..try it will earn your trust itself..cheers!!
