    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.

    No doubt mirrors are mouth watering and really looks good with the bike.. Glad to know that my review on R.piaggio helped alot of people.. Every week i came across peoples PM asking for my contact no to have some discussion about bike.. And i gladly help them as its kinda brotherly atmosphere to help out each other..I have been to many online forums. You name it and iam there.. But the love and affection i feel on PW is unique

    Thank you, I hope I can be help ful.

    1 - Handle : You have two choices Clip -On or Short Size Handle but in both cases remeber what you are gaining and what you are losing this is very important, because if you put these handle and remove original, you seating Style would Become aggressive and more leaned over the fuel Tank and you will get much more load to front giving you more control over the bike with very agressive manuverablity (jisay hum yahan per Cuttain MArna kehtay hain),

    Now WHAT you will lose : THE most important featue : COMFORT because you are in aggressive mode now and half of you chest wieght is on you shoulder just like heavy bikes and you will be tired or become muscular from shoulder very soon , now you know why Heavy Bike riders are always Body Builders ...

    2 - FAT TYRE :
    I have heard Mixed reviews from Riders as I have'nt done it with my own bike, but people who added Tyre maximum to 100/100/18 the experiment went super well,, but those rider who went beyond 100/110 have very bad experience and according to them bike loses its Thrill completely, even on 110/100 according to SK bike has decreased almost to 5~10%

    Solution For Fat Tyre Bad performance : Last day I called bilal autos to ask about Duct Tape used on silencers for Hidalgo, and discusion went long and Hafis gee (the main mechnic there) told me that if you dont want to lose performance and want to enhance the grip and put a fat tyre, then switch to 17 RIM instead of 18 and you will see the magic I hope thats what you also wanted to hear.

    3 -Alloy: NOT a good Idea Simple. Bike becomes a Petrol Drinking CD 70


    Hope it helps.

    omer bro, how is this korean tyre in grip as compared to stock servis???
    Its much better one can feel the difference when riding specially at high speeds and braking also. its better then the stock service that's why i changed it because i saw the same Korean tire in another piaggio in Rawalpindi also and the brother told me that he has been using the tire for quite some time he had a 2010 model piaggio and was very satisfied with it.
