    Default A good looking bike?

    I am looking forward to buy a new bike within the next two months! No, not a heavy bike. Just a simple one for around 1 lac or a little more. I was thinking about getting the RAVI PIAGGO as it has a decent shape and looks good. It's going to be my first and I seriously don't care about the top-speed. I just want a smooth and a good looking ride. (do mention the prize!)
    I will have no plans to resell it any sooner!

    edit: Also please consider and tell me about the durability of these bikes, the price of repair parts and mileage
    edit 2: my current location is rawalpindi

    buying deluxe, you'll face almost no issues regarding spare parts availability and mechanics...

    But it's a little over priced...
    It lacks the additional features that Piaggio has...

    Buying Piaggio, you'll have spare parts and proper mechanic issues, it has stylish looks, self start, dipper, gauges (as mentioned by Silver_Knife bhai)...

    In looks, Piaggio looks more modern.
    Performance wise, deluxe and Piaggio both are almost equal. Piaggio is getting common here in Lahore too


    So, I'll suggest you go for Piaggio

    One point that I would like to raise is that Italians are notoriously bad when it comes to reliability! Look at Alfa Romeo, Ducati's histories and you'll get my point. So sayiing that a bike has italian tech is actually a negative point sorry if I offended someone, just want the poster to know everything

    I dont agree with your point of view.. Why dont you quote the example of "Vespa". The most reliable product by Piaggio here in Pakistan. And asking about reliability.. ??

    I'm not talking about the R Piaggio! It must be a very reliable bike because vicky bhai and you have testified for it. I'm just talking in the general sense.. Italians have a bad reputation when it comes to reliability. Just a little fact i thought i'd share.

    I don't think that would be an issue because it's built according to Pakistan standards.

    its true, they never exposed there racing secrets... and Italians are leading racing motor manufacturers u name it ferraris ? Ducatis.. bennellis ... lot of them ...


    but let me clarify some thing here its not a Italian bike (Ravi Paiggio) its a re-Branded Chinese ZongShen Bike which is design in Italy but its complete chain and back up is under chine, the only reason it emerged strong is that Quality control (still not better then Japanese) but far ahead in quality then other local manufacturers..



    paiggio is far better styled the Deluxe, and if you are planning for your Young happy Hot looking bike you can go for it being a new bike it will not go down next half a decade if used decently (remember its not a racing bike and it do not beats CG unless modified) and last its second better choice if you talk about quality 1st choice is honda, other japanese like suzuki is not good in 125/150 class.. as far as I see people around.

    Have to agree with you on the R Piaggio's styling It went past me yesterday aur aisa laga tha k something much expensive than R Piaggio has passed.. it has presence and people notice it. Maybe i'll get one! Looking at the CG currently laken i really hate the handle bars on it and the way all the buttons/controls have been cramped into one control panel, looks cheap. Even my sprinter has better handlebar controls

    I will suggest before buying test drive both of them in the market so you can get better and clear idea which bike you should go for.

    Piaggio at its price provides far more value for money than Deluxe at 116k Rupees.

    Even if Piaggio starts costing the same, it'll be still hell LOT better than what Deluxe offers.

    The ONLY reason i like Deluxe is because of its Riding position. Gives "YOU" control over your bike.

    Don't get me wrong. Piaggio has a great riding position too, makes the rider PART of the Bike Itself, giving it a bit more ... sporty look.

    BUT thats not what "I" want.
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    dont get confused affan you now know the pro/cons.. now swing to market have a test ride of GS/CG/DLX/Paiggio ... then you will not chose the bike ... "THE BIKE WILL CHOOSE ITS RIDER ITSELF" you will never be able to make a decision let the bike do it for you ... I am very sure the main competition will be in CG and Paiggio ... because Kaaba meray pechay hai,kalesa meray agay ... after tiding you will be more confident what you really want..

    PS. you will be really pissed by no beat and tone of Piaggio.. its a completly mute bike in comparison to thundering CG.


    for spare parts and those things you can get in touch with @omer85 he also live in Islamabad and has a good knowledge about it..


    -hope it helps.
