    Default My New Ride

    AoA All !
    After waiting for Honda 150cc which never launched sadly i opted to go for Suzuki GS-150.
    Though i did endless research for RP-125 in Karachi but it all went in vain!

    Finally after consulting through some close friends and relatives i decided to purchase RP-125 from lahore .....
    I purchased it for 99k from Mcleod road and freight charges by karakoram train to karachi were 2k.

    I know i'll be having spare parts issue in karachi but then "shok ka koi mol nahi" hence the only thing im expecting is that it can compete with honda deluxe which i sold in terms of power and comfort.

    I'll reveal its performance to u guys in a few days .....
    @vickytulla this is for ur eyes only My New Ride! -1273321My New Ride! -1273327My New Ride! -1273326My New Ride! -1273324My New Ride! -1273322My New Ride! -1273335My New Ride! -1273323My New Ride! -1273325My New Ride! -1273334My New Ride! -1273333My New Ride! -1273332My New Ride! -1273331My New Ride! -1273330My New Ride! -1273329My New Ride! -1273328

    yea it is hard and on Long trips it is a very good Idea to take air pillow to keep the a$$ away from passing out..
    but in city limits it works fine...

    Yes it is hard as compared to deluxe..... and the seating posture is also different due to muscular fuel tank!

    Oh that is one very bad negative point about piaggio storm
    they should improve it as comfortable seat is what provides comfort on long drives

    and Venom brother i don't think piaggio storm driving position would be as good as deluxe
    Deluxe really provides the best driving position among all local bikes excellent driving position
    to drive bike it is very easy to drive deluxe due to this you can zig zag and take turns comfortably

    Paiggio's fuel gauge issue was resolved back in 2011.....havnt heard of this problem in the newer stock
    Infact, a friend of mine got a brand new piaggio last month n I got to test ride it when it was barely 20-30 kms driven.....there was no fuel guage or chain cover issue

    i think it should be there where your deluxe's air mixture was in carb

    but if you find the screw i would strongly suggest do not touch its settings

    and bro i don't think there is vibration in deluxe at slow speed
    deluxe starts to vibrate after 80km/h till that speed its vibration free too

    No not at all .... There was no support from Ravi neither did I contact them after what happened while searching for RP in karachi!
    My relative visited Tariq Autos at mcleod road and told them he wanted a box packed bike which needs to be transported to karachi .... after much bargaining the final deal was closed at 99k with 2k charges of train to karachi !
    I didn't go to lahore myself .... Yes the transportation and stuff was all done by them !

    To date cost is:
    Bike= Rs. 99,000
    Transportation= Rs.2000
    Misc. Charges= Rs.500 (chai paani at station and truck driver)
    Registration= Rs. 2500
