Since the day one of introduction of Ravi storm 125, its marketers have always tried to lie on the question about:
Where its engine and other parts are imported from?
And the answer is like this stated on their website:
Ravi Piaggio 125: is it 100% Italian, Imported or Local Assembled?
The Ravi Piaggio 125 or Ravi Storm 125 is designed by Italian Engineers. Its 80% parts are imported and 20% parts are manufactured in Pakistan. Being as an OEM standard manufacturing concern we are also manufacturing 10% parts in our factory (Ravi Automobile). The bike is then assembled in Pakistan.

Ravi Piaggio 125: is it 100% Italian, Imported or Local Assembled? | Ravi Motorcycles
somehow, they always forget to mention that they are OEM of ZPFM China and not of Piaggio Italy. The same abhorrent policy has always been applied by their supporters all the time even knowingly that what they are claiming is a lie.
It has always remained a debate on Ravi Piaggio threads but the stubborn headed persons have always refused to admit that its a motorcycle coming from ZPFM China.
In the past mamehmood and sbrana of Ravi motorcycles also tried the same policy on their forums, but they could not withstand the proofs provided by the Pakwheels members and eventually agreed on that its a ZPFM China product. One of the oldest Ravi Storm 125 thread was closed at the request of mamehmood who could not withstand the questions of its buyers.
In recent days, some members are again lying and boasting about Ravi storm 125 as not being coming from China.
These so called fans are trying to proof that this motorcycle is either being manufactured in Pakistan with the collaboration of Piaggio Italy, or its engine or other parts are coming direct from Italy. But the things are opposite to it.
Though most of the guys know its origin, and they have always bashed the liars, but still some of the marketers always try to make others fool, and even ridicule the honest riders which hurts a lot of people.
I am making this thread so that every body will once and forever know whats the truth. I think I have enough proof to claim that I am right. I will also ask my fellows to support me with valid links and information so that we could proof that right is always right.
