    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.

    Nope did nothing of that sort reason, did have a long chat with him but being the owner he was very much pleased and satisfied with it and he had put a lot of money and effort into it the paint job and the silencers and the seat the rear tire and he really enjoyed it. i think it is just ones personal liking as he did this to a brand new bike. Mostly nobody paints the whole new bike in most of the cases vinyls are used but this was paint. But at the end wohy baat loog janay apnay piaggio kay saath kya kya kartay hay as they like.

    Default Noise from Rear Brakes and shocks

    The bikes rear brakes were giving screeching sound when applied went to the Ravi warranty center they serviced the brake. First washed the drum from inside then used the blower to blow away all the dust after that used a sandpaper to clean the brake pads and then finally applied grease to the springs and fitted the brake.

    Some chic chic sound which i thought was from the shocks was also there because it only came on jumps but the mechanic told me its not from the rear shocks its from the axle so he greased that also and that sound also went away

    Alhumdullilah its going fine now no more screeching sounds now.

    Took some pics also
