I live in Thailand. And I want to purchase a bike for personal use.
I wanted a 200cc above bike and was confused between tiger 250 rs and honda
Is honda 200cc a better buy in terms of
1. better reliability of wear and tear(engine, gear box, controls)?
2. better service?
3. low maintainance?
4. better mileage
They are different styles of bikes; the Phantom is a cruiser/touring style bike and the Tiger Boxer 250RS is a sports style bike.
Both are reliable and have good parts and service backup. Fuel consumption i don't know but the Phantom is about 20 kg heavier.
Servicing and parts would be about the same. I think the Phantom is no longer being made but there should be plenty of parts around for a while.
Really the only decision you need to make is which feels better for you to ride.
Although there are many different cultures, races and religions in the world, there are only 3 types of people; those that squeeze every last drop out of a toothpaste tube, those that don’t and those that think they do.
