    Default PW Members & Piaggio Owners Invited to RAVI Piaggio Factory In Lahore

    Hello Everyone!

    Taking the initiative of interacting and communicating with the "end user", the management of RAVI-Piaggio invited PW members and Piaggio owners to their manufacturing facility in Lahore on Saturday, July 23rd 2011.

    Initially around seven members responded to the invitation but three of us were unable to join due to different reasons. Four of us paid the visit to the factory on the morning of July 23rd.

    Stay tuned for the details.

    Mods: Apologies if this is not the appropriate section but since it is regarding bikes and most of the bikers roam around this section, posting here. Hope it is okay.

    Love thy Parents.

    While reading the review, I am really impressed by the customer service of Ravi guys... It means they actually care for the customer & give worth to the suggestions unlike other local manufacturers e.g.Toyota, Honda, Suzuki..... Hats off to their dedication & spirit.

    I am planning to buy Storm but still I am not sure if I should go for it or I should wait for another couple of months. Moreover I am worried about faults in it as many friends pointed out here in this forum

    We were warmly received by Mr. Umer Khayyam who heads the Quality and Mr. Nauman who is the manager of production and assembly. We were taken to the training room that had a tiny door to it. There were three Piaggios and a Moped parked there along with a couple of 70cc Ravi bikes. The Vespa Moped was a 125cc and looked very nice. It was an automatic stylish looking scooter with a digital watch in the speedometer.
    hope they got that RED light off in the meter that I accidently switched on and we couldent turn off

    Me and SMARTDEVIL had a very good experience with the fuel average of the bike, both of us had seen it doing 65kms in ONE litre. However, seenforu and umer009 had a different story to tell. Their bikes were only doing 40kms to a litre. When this question was put up to the gentlemen, Nauman told us that in one shipment of about 300 bikes, the the jet of the carburator was faulty and after it was fitted, there was an issue of backfire and poor average. A chinese representative of Piaggio China was called and he stayed in the factor for a week but was unable to UNDERSTAND the issue. Then another 6 or 7 members team came from China after Ravi sent two of their guys to China. That team understood the issue and those jets were then replaced.
    Now Im not sure if some other shipment alos has some sort of faulty carbs which were not caught and are giving low fuel average.
    After some hands on experience by a fellow rider from PakistanBikersClub I can now say for sure that poor milage can be improved by replacing the Jets in the Carb for better performance or milage.
    people have been found geting the entire carb or the jets replaced with those of a Honda.
    but cant vouch about their success.

    You know i was sitting at the Ravi piaggio dealers shop in rawalpindi and a person came shouting, well later i come to know that his bike was doing only 28kmpl , well isnt that really pathetic rather than being funny????

    yes bro pathetic would be the decent word to use.
    YES get it replaced in Waranty as i did.
    althow my bike gave a black smoke of unburnt fuel for which my mechanic said its the carb that needs to be replaced and I got it changed in waranty.
    my bike did round 40 to 43 with the previous carb and now its a sniffer :p

    Wait bro !

    take your time analize the market situation.
    check if RAVI would continue this lineup of Italian bikes or not as they are surely short on SPARE parts for 3 months now

So if some1 can help in this matter i would really appreciate it. Thanks

    Hey bro !
    30 is bad but for sure that poor milage can be improved by replacing the Jets in the Carb for better performance or milage.
    people have been found geting the entire carb or the jets replaced with those of a Honda.
    but I cant say for sure if this will be the solution for you but it sure has helped many.

    it seems to me that the electrical system is setting in and making less trouble as the time passes


    the first time the head light was not working ... the next day it came on.... and is working eve since


    i am willing to drive to the factory if i can get theses problems fixed .... IF they have the facility there ....IF they just dont put the bikes together blindfolded and send them to the market
    The factory definetly has the setup but they do not entertain complaints just like that.
    as your bike is in waranty go to your dealer and ask him to arrange a complete electrical checkup and file a waranty claim if something needs to be replaced.
    if your dealre does not have the appropriate settup then he should make arrangements for you to visit the factory for the same !

    it was also because of the numerous cuts on the wiring of this bike.

    but if u want 100 % precision than go with 100 ml method
    after that those users who claims their average is 65 km/liter should get their bike checked with this method for correct average and if their average do come which they claim then im also among the one who got the faulty carbeurator coz max i got is 42-43 frm this bike
    also it seems too much unrealistic for a 125 to give 65km/l . a chance could be tht they might have faulty speedometer so it shud also be tested before taking average
    Man I agree but would just state that mine has improved in milage as I have both experiances with bad average on old carb and excellent avg with this new one and on the same spedo
