    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.

He also told me it was an easy fit and no mods were done to the frame the total cost of everything was around 30K.

    CB250 is a tour bike (cruiser type), while cbr250R is a sports bike
    although both have 250cc engine but engine technology is completelety different
    CB250 ab nahy ata production closed, cbr250r is still in production
    baqi jo cruiser aur sports bike may differences hotay hay shape, handling aur styling may wohy hay dono may

    This is a very nice deal do share the pictures because raised on bars itny ki milni ka matlab hai you literly stealed the shop keeper, naseer_Jan (pakwheeler) visited bilal ganj few days back and had a really hard luck and couldnt find it even he was willing to pay 4k for the raised Bars then he went to chitta but didnt liked the quality and finish and returned empty handed to gujrat..

    it seems this is your first ever post to PW, do keep in touch.. ride safe ... waiting for hot pictures with new bars..

    that is possible most bikers do that and its has a legal process.

    CB is a commuting engine made for city Bikes (CB) and is a inline two Celender where aas CB"R" is a racing engine with inline 4 cylender makes double of what the CB250 makes ... and is not suitable for tiny 125 bikes frames like we have.

    thanks @omer @vicky it was the last pair because we cudn't find any other pair and we searched for 1.5hrs... he was asking for 1800 for handle bars but we managed to bring him down to 1300... i also ned another L-key nut because one of the handles was missing its -key... as for the chain cover i went to a market behind chitta denter and i bought it new for 120rs its very light and flexible but i saw it fitted on a piaggio before buying so it should fit snugly with a little maneuvering

    as you can see one of the handles is missing its L-key nut... this was also the last pair in the market we searched every shop for around 1.5 hours then found this pair... the guy there wasn't coming down from 1800 rs but then me and my cousin persuaded him and finally closed the deal at 1300 rs... i bought the chain cover from a market behind the chitta denter and i saw the same thing fitted on a red piaggio so i thought what the heck its only 120 rs but its light and flexible...

    MashAllah Dr Sahab. .. very good choice of putting raised clip on bars..

    the right bar looks bended get it repaired before fitting, get in touch with Omer, he can guide you, I and omer fitted the bars on paiggio our self. not a big job. the chain gaurd is of metal ? put rubber washers between chain gaurd and frame because metal Chain Gaurds vibrate and give ratalling sound on reving the bike.

    -Happy Riding.
