    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 decision yet, round original headlight has much better light and HID can be fitted in the light, the current light which i have fitted gives a much modern and street bike look with a different styling but its light is not much as compared to the original and HID cannot be installed in it. So still deciding either to go with stock better light or cosmetically better light which i currently have installed

    by the way I did saw a piaggio with a 250cc WaterCooled CRF250 engine (chinese replica) but he was too quick for me to catch that rider I deadly wanted to meet him that how did he do that and where did he found that dual came 4 valve engine.. (the CBR125 and CBR250 are also equally applicable).

    its a pitty I had a slow ride and he zoomed into disappearance as soon as the signal went green ..

    Its a normal CG 125 in shape of Paiggio (the international model last of the latest incarnation of CG) and I placed a Road Master 200cc 16Hp engine using photoshop .. lol ..

    CD185 (17HP), CD200 (16HP) and CB250(20HP) have identical size and build only major noticeable difference is in the Head and Cylender bore and piston size.

    not talking about CBR but CB250 ...yes that is true and the Plus is that Paiggio/deluxe frames are strong enough to tackle the 20BHP of CB250 too...

    Stay tuned you will be seeing one in few weeks from Han1911 soon ...
