    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.

    Lets hear from SK and Omer about wet condition/cornering performance of these tyres.

    actually servis has a veryy similar design to Dunlop, and servis itself is very poor in wet conditions because the tread design donot allow fast escape of water under tyre and causes a lose traction...
    Omer can explain also here that how is the handling of his tyre at corners and wet conditions too... because we all have 18'RIMS so we can share our knowledge.
    Alhumdullilah the tire i am using is good in wet conditions also have driven it in rain also and alhumdullilah never slipped yet, Cornering is also fine, i had that slipping problem specially while cornering in service tire but with this tire haven't had that problem. The service tire used to slip from behind if rear brake was applied with force but if applying the same force on the brake this tire dosen't slip.

    its well explained by vicky bhai about water escape

    Yup they come in many variants like 125CC and 150CC then you have different variants with different options in both 125cc and 150 cc bikes. They have 3 different models in both 125cc and 150 cc
