Looks like we have about the same views on riding. I'm sure that any type of motorcycle is better for the commute in your city. You are right about the possible wheel damage with bad roads. Funny that you mention that, not long ago a member on the PCX forum shared that in Thailand they swap in 13 inch wheels onto their Honda PCX, so that they can fit fatter tires with more side wall, that way it can handle the bad roads. The Honda PCX comes with 14 inch wheels from the factory.
