    Here is the complete news! Vespa scooter was also made by this company

    Euro-II 125cc bike to be launched: MoU signed



    Italian auto giant Piaggio on Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding with a local motorcycle manufacturer here for launching of the first-ever Euro-II 125cc motorcycle in Pakistan and setting up an international standard service centre in the provincial metropolis.



    Speaking at the signing ceremony of MoU at the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Piaggio Senior President Riccardo Mastronardi said that the Italian auto giant would bring European technology to Pakistan which would give a big boost to the motorcycle industry in the country.



    He said that Piaggio was one of the leading motorcycle manufactures in the world and Vespa scooter was its masterpiece.



    Piaggio’s coming back to Pakistan for joining hands with a motorcycle manu-



    facturer made the point that Pakistan was known as an investment-friendly country in Europe.



    HKF Engineering Chief Executive Officer Haroon Arshad said that the Euro-II standard motorcycle would be launched on August 14 this year in collaboration Piaggio.



    LCCI President Muhammad Ali Mian said that auto industry was one of the important sectors of economy which was not only providing direct jobs to more than half a million people but also contributing to the national exchequer in a big way.



    He said that Piaggio would benefit from investment because Pakistan was a rapidly growing market of middle class which had registered growth of about 7 per cent in yester years outpacing its neighbouring countries.

    Name of the bike is Ravi Piaggio 125cc

    Friday, June 27, 2008
    By our correspondent

    LAHORE: A leading European company has signed a deal with a local entrepreneur to produce 125cc Euro-II motorcycles in the country, challenging the monopoly of Japanese and Chinese bike manufacturers.

    “Italian auto giant Piaggio has decided to introduce European automobile technology in Pakistan,” said the company’s Senior Vice President Ricardo Mastronardi after signing of a memorandum of understanding between Piaggio and HKF Engineering at the Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

    Ricardo said “Piaggio is one of the leading motorcycle manufacturers in the world and the first two-wheeler scooter in the world Vespa is its masterpiece.”

    He said Piaggio’s comeback to Pakistan and joining hands with a leading local motorcycle manufacturing company HKF Engineering showed the Europeans had faith in Pakistan’s economy.

    The phenomenal growth of motorcycle production in Pakistan had impressed European automobile circles, he said, adding “they now realise that growth potential of this country is much higher.”

    He hoped bike-lovers in Pakistan would appreciate the difference between the technology being introduced by Piaggio and the existing one.

    Speaking on the occasion, LCCI President Mohammad Ali Mian said the auto industry was one of the important sectors as it was not only providing direct jobs to more than 500,000 people but also contributing to the national exchequer in a big way. He said Pakistani entrepreneurs would learn a lot from latest European technology in the wake of the MoU between the two big organisations.

    Under the agreement, HKF Engineering will launch its first joint product Ravi Piaggio 125cc motorcycle, the first Euro-II motorcycle in Pakistan, followed by many future products. HKF Engineering Chief Executive Officer Haroon Arshad said the motorcycle industry had been registering a 25 per cent growth for the last five years. He said the first European technology-based motorcycle would be launched on August 14 this year.

    Piaggio make only scooters, they haven't yet learnt to make a bike so don't expect anything too great. Scooters are not liked that much in our country and sure enough Piaggio will soon realize its mistake.

    I think scooters are not the only kind they make, as I was going through the following link.

    http://www.piaggio.com/default.asp?lng=2


    Wiki shows the following brands under Piaggio & Co. SpA

    Products

    Aprilia
    Derbi
    Gilera
    Ligier
    Moto Guzzi
    Piaggio
    Vespa

    check out the link yourself

    http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piaggio

    It will be really interesting what they produce for Pakis.

    @ all
    EURO II is an environment polution safety standard it means the bike which they would launch would be lesser on emissions and more on engine efficiency....It surely means it would be a 2 stroke scooter with euro II environment friendly standard....honda city in pakistan is being made on Euro III standard it has low fuel consumption and more milage and speed....Dats all about Euro standards
