So, was spending a couple of days procrastinating on what type of bike to choose. Standing at 186cm, I've decided to go with touring bike.

Did some research on 2B touring bike and stuck between the following choices.

-CB150x

-CB190x Tourism

-CB190x Fight Hawk

-CB200x

Wasn't able to find much reviews on the CB150x and 200x and was told that CB190x has a notorious reputation for their engine.

Really need your opinions on these. Thanks in advance.

Cb150… or any of that has water coolant.. dun go for air cool bikes.. 100% regret.. unless we are winter country then can go with air cool..

Tbh, with your height, you are able to ride any bike applicable in class 2B. In my case, I'm standing at 155cm and have to modified my bike front fork and rear shock loader to fit my height to feel comfortable.

 

Better to just try test out each brand and model first too see which bike suit you.

First bike would recommend to get a second hand bike, so the 150X and 200X being new in the market don't think will have second hand so fast.

Personally I had 2019 CB190X tourism as my first bike for 1yr+ till I change to my current 400X after getting 2A, no issues even for long ridings west to east in SG. Also entered JB once, but the engine is really no power lah, full throttle in msia meter only maintaining ard 116, downslope 120, GPS speed is about 10km less. My colleague having the CBF190X FH close to 4yrs usage having no issues with the engine. Thinks it's really a luck thing about getting a bad engine. But better to get a friend who know about bikes to view second hand bike.

Size wise 200X is the biggest, almost same size as a 400X. Will look best suit your height. But the engine is the same old 184cc engine in all the cb190 bikes. Then again if you are into biking and planning upgrading to 2A or even 2, get a second hand one, not very worth for new with the current COE price.
