Knight | 6 years ago | Reply I want to share my personal experence of bikes in Pakistan I own a cd70 bike and a car too I have experenced the CD70's Breaks are so useless some times i pray to God let my bike stop before hiting car in front of me because CD70 is technology from 1970's what can you expect from them. Car and bike assemblers are lotting people by selling outdated technologies, on other hand car can stop very quickly if you hit your breaks but biker who is behind you doesn't have disc breaks if your car has ABS it will make it stop even quicker. From my point of view if you try to break too hard on CD70 or CD125 which has outdated drum breaks can either get out of control and slip on road or you will hit car in front of you. now a days yamaha and suzuki has better breaks but its too expensive for poor people.
