    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.

    Name the title 'All Local Bikes Manuals' so we can get every bike manual in 1 single thread.

    Omer keep a seprate thread for Paiggo specifiacally, as your images are already on pakwheels you only need to show them there in the new thread... because if you made thrread for all local bikes it would mix up with 70s and chondas and would be hard to trace, beside people would search for paiggo and google will find this thread more easily ... if it is named like paiggo user Manual or something..


    just a tip
    My 2 Cents.

    Yes omer I went to Bilal ganj had to search for Front Beam for SilverKnife and BlueHorn beside Clip on for you and SK and Alloy RIMS for Deluxe of han ...

    macrocks told about a shop with lots of round front lights but unfortunaltly he was unable to come to Bilal ganj but I and Han traced out shops where we did found round lights but in very worse condition or with plastic lens and non justfieble prices.. I talked to Bllue horn he said drop the idea to buy them its better to go for some other options..

    then we searched for alloy rims we found a best deal or RIMS + tubeless-tyre (with good tread and condition) + complete rear disc breat for deluxe and Han was quite happy ..


    Then the Last thing was the Clip On Handle Bars so look below what we found (not a single handle was matching other handle in piles and piles of clip on in different shops in market... believe me han and mespent hour to make one succesfull pair .. but failed ... ) the shop keeper told us that people are buying even spreate handles to make a pair and we have run out of stock now ...:
