KSR la
it is ready upgradable from takegawa or kitaco
and can also use many modenas kriss parts...
also the accessories terlalu banyak..
good for your creativity
can also do DIY

economical also.. 1 liter petrol can go 55km (standard engine)
and its made by KAWASAKI so very reliable engine
ive been riding the KSR to work for 3 years + now... all ok

this is mine

KSR 110

It fulfils your 3 requirements, plus it trumps the other 2 candidates in terms of looks (my opinion) an moddability (fact).

Being something other than an automatic scooter it also gives you the opportunity to develop yourself to be a more competent rider, instead of someone who just turns a throttle. You'll be more engaged with your ride and this I believe will have you enjoying the feeling of riding your bike for longer compared to riding the other two choices.

+ on the resale value, I've been watching the trend, KSR prices have consistently gone up in the 2nd hand market in past 2 years, and I believe even more in the future due to its relative rarity.

Doesn't matter if you just wanna ride it around the block or to the shop. if you gotta ride, do it in style wink.gif

From the factory it's designed as a single seater, although you are able to purchase and install an aftermarket second seat, or a long seat. Anyhow I do agree that it's quite too small a bike to comfortably seat two people on longer trips.

Actually i hv thought of Naza GTR 150 at 1st. But $8.5K, i think is over my budget n pricey for a taiwan bike. i put KSR at my poll bcoz it look different fr others n mod exhaust caught my eyes on it, and scooter coz it look stylo than kapchai n cheaper(can save around 2k+, about 1/3). nvr think of driving long journey(unless got join member go konvoi la...) coz got car. I dun need to hv top speed till 130-150kmh. coz the fastest i speed my pug 150kmh oredi feel like floating...hehee... go to work less than 6km

obiwankedah, where u got tat headlamp? nice headlamp....

the headlamp is from KTM duke.. i DIY it on my KSR

you can get so many after market head lamps..

here
http://www.myksr.net/shoppe/

every month also can change the apperance of ur KSR...
maintenance also cheap , basically just like kapcai or modenas kriss...

just tukar minyak hitam , spark plug and oil filter only... about RM50 or less
every 2000 km...
