    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.

    One of the best Piaggio I have ever seen, the more I see the bike pictures the more I am willing to buy it. Awesome literally awesome work and I think you should stick with stock engine.

    Omer Masla Speed ka nahi hai I am using a Fat 18 as u know and its a well used engine.. it still goes above hundered ... the real down side is the intial Pick and Accelration which is gone more bad...


    If you remember your same very same bike smoked the two drag races with hafiz sahab's CG125 after putting irriduim, ignition changes and 17 Aluminuim RIM... Try it now ... I think you got it. so now you need more Horses to push all the added new wieight.


    By the way Inline twin swap is on the way will be updating about it soon ..

    Really, well did you put it against CG or just considereing it to be the same ? because I tested hans Dlx after Alloys RIMS there was about ~40% power loss (now this is BIG LOSS) but it was not very noticeable when riding with no other ride around..

    How would be the performance of Deluxe if we put same tyres/rims? Omar you are right speed is not everything if some want must go for GTO or RX.
    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.
