    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.

    Yup these mods are not for speed, yup if someone wants speed there are other options even in this bike also besides going for other bikes and yes gto and rx no compaison in speed but you wont get these looks with gto or rx, rest waqar bhai or han1911 would better inform you about performance loss in deluxe

    1 - where Dlx takes ~10secs to reach 100kmh with stock engine + alloys it required 15+ to do with Alloys and Disc setup of FZR (hans bike is using FZR250 Rims). and in 15 (giving aproximate idea these are not 100% corect figures)

    2 - With pillion rider bike ka engine higher rpm per zor ligana perta hai .. (sounds like rickshaw engine trying best to get the bike rolling)

    3 - Speedy Engine Decay, engine gets exhausted and heated up sooner then expected ..


    even Hans Engine was upgraded, we felt direct loss in power to mass ratio, and a friend non PW from sialkot placed rims in 2010 paiggio got his piston blown and clutch plates exhausted after 6 months.


    I am very sure it effects the same on paiggio too, your bike is brand new so thats why its making it less noticeable but remember engine its doing double work right now and will get tired soon or if you use it non racing style then its ok no problem. .

    I remember when placed alloy wheels in paiggio, the orignals were 8KG rear and 5.5 front total= 13.5 including rear brakes, where as Disc Setup and Allyos wight total was ~24KG including BRakes and Clipers and fitting stuff. (this is almost a little less then the total weight of its own engine... )


    I think best is to find light wieght Alloys of actuall 125cc Class bikes they will not put any pressure...


    PS - figures are not 100% accurate but to give an idea about the difference b/w them

    Didnt I told you all the prioces on fone.. well here you go ..
    70cc= 5k
    100cc= 7k
    125cc= 15500
    150cc= 25500 (Chopper 5gear engine with dual exhaust Pipe)
    150CC= 28k (Single Pipe mezan rickshaw eninge with water body)
    200cc=33k sazgar aircooled
    200cc= 33k NewAsia Watercooled
    200cc= 38k Stahlco Comando water Body.


    Their were many other options in CHnise rickshaw engine closely priced.

    Where as 200cc 5-gear Quad Bike engine was 40k in almost brand new.
