    Post My Ravi Piaggio Storm 125 - 2012

    Assalamualaikum To All,

    Although i had posted a few pics already of my bike, i am starting this thread a bit late after buying ravi piaggio storm 125 just to share the experience.

    Previously i owned a Honda Cd 100, Bought Cd 100 in 2006 and kept it for 6 years till 2012, It was an excellent bike and never gave me any kind of trouble for the whole 6 years really went well and even now was in very good genuine condition.

    Then after reading many reviews of different bikes on P.W. and looking at different bikes available in the market i went for Ravi Piaggio 125 and bought the bike on Nov 1st 2012. Then sold my Cd 100 to a friend the next week after i bought Piaggio 125.

    Here are pics of my bike


    My Ravi Piaggio Storm 125  2012 -1206119

    My Ravi Piaggio Storm 125  2012 -1206120

    Some Initial Problems which i had to face.

    1. There where noises from the front wheel bearing at just 200 K.M.
    2. When the bike was just driven 300 K.M. the speedometer cable broke
    3. The tappets adjustment was not good and there was engine noise
    4. Spark Plug quality was not good
    5. Noise was coming from the speedometer

    Solutions To the above mentioned Problems.

    1. The front wheel bearings was easily changed by piaggio warranty center under warranty and they are working excellent now
    2. Speedometer cable was also changed under warranty from warranty center and is operating fine now
    3. Tappets they said would be adjusted at 1000 K.M. first service and not to be adjusted before that.
    4. Spark plug would also be changed at 1000 K.M.
    5. The speedometer was touching key hole so they adjusted the speedometer and moved it a bit away from the key hole the noise went away

    Overall Experience

    The overall experience of the bike went really well if i had any issue the problem was resolved by the warranty center and any faulty part was easily claimed. Its an excellent bike specially if we see the styling and comfort and there is no bike like Piaggio 125 currently in the Pakistani market and i really enjoy the ride of the bike.

    Its quite different from Cd 100 as Cd 100 is completely different then 125, the bike is smaller in size lighter in weight and of course 100cc 4 gears while ravi piaggio has 125cc 5 gears. When i drove Ravi piaggio and then when i drove Cd 100 after riding piaggio for about 5 days i felt like riding a very small and uncomfortable ride with much less road grip and power.

    Its a complete different experience with both bikes but i enjoyed CD 100 for 6 years and i still like it, now lets see how it goes with Ravi Piaggio 125.

    Many congrats!
    M.A.
    But to be honest, I didn't like ur mods much... stock is stock yaar!?
    Look at that head light? Totally not going with the bike... and its original round one looks so good! Why waste money on that?

    Rest is good! And good luck with her... R.p. surely is a good bike!

    Walaikumusallam, Yup of course i remember you, yes i did check the speed it went to 110 Km/h, but to reach at this speed you really have to pull the bike to the max RPM in 3rd and 4th gear specially then it goes to this speed and don't worry you have a brand new bike InshaAllah the bike would be OK.
