    Review About RAVI PIAGGIO 125CC


    Quetta - Khujerab Pass- Quetta



    Dear its been great pleasure for me to Ride such a long distance on RP125cc, Its been very marvelous friend an reliable companion in all the way, As in total journey of almost 4500KM it never stopped anywhere due to any technical Fault( except Tyre puncture), 1st of all i was traveling on it with almost 35kg of load, it was superb in speed as i started from 80-90 km/hr to Maintained speed 115-120 km/hr. so no missing no heat up issues, amazingly i drove it continuously 12-15 hrs, no where felt that its exhausted now, even after heat up it was running more aggressively,

    bike control was really wonderful on 120 km/hr no vibration in handle, even was so steady that i was driving and taking pics with single hand was very comfortable, front shocks and Disc breaks make a combo, in high speed used both breaks it stopped quickly, no skids or slips any where, very good at sharp cutting roads or swings, even on 100 km/hr took many turns very easily due to sporty Tyre extra grip. even on wet roads after rain was very good, not felt single slips,
    petrol average was good on maintain speeds, given 41km/l on high speeds where high winds and heights. almost 51-55km/l in cities on slow speeds, took average Tank full then tank full divided by KM done.
    i was little nervous about muddy heights and snobs of Babu sar top and Other areas like that, but it was really amazing at those areas too, never stooped in 3 ft rushing water, not slipped single time in any mud, but even was more comfort able on off road drives, after some 20 hr drive felt little hard on seat so adjusted some extra foam.
    Well interesting fact when coming back from Khunjerab pass towards passu. some Cg 125 guy passed me and given some accelerators, i unnoticed him he again came and given some accelerator i also let my bike to go, he was sharp in 2nd and 3rd gear when i shifted to 4th gear we were side by side, and when i changed5th gear and given accelerator and after some time i saw in back mirror he was almost a KM left back. well not disgracing any CG 125 just sharing experience.

    Well one major point is also Fuel tank capacity of 14 ltrs vs 9.5ltrs in Cg125 so again very suitable on long routes specially where petrol pumps are not easily available
    Well over all as i have kept many Bikes/ Vespa/ Trails in my Opinion its very Beautiful/ Power full Reliable Bike on Long routes for a comfortable drive.its Engine is powerful on any rock solid or muddy height or wet surface,
    I thinks Driver is also very important, so it depends how u drive,

    Well in my whole journey except of some GLIs Corollas have crossed me . other then no car or bike did cross me

    I will give rating out of 10
    comfort 9
    power 10
    looks 10
    economy 7
    Reliable 8


    Well Every one`s opinion is important and may differ to each other.

    Wonderful performance, Masha Allah.

    I suddenly feel respect for RP125. I used to think it was a inferior quality Chinese engine which would not be reliable and durable. But your endeavour on this machine proves it's a tough machine with good build quality.

    I also want to do a road trip on bike. Any groups in Lahore who go long routes?

    Shazim bhai, I followed your original thread on this trip.

    Can't find a suitable word to describe it. Awesome, simply awesome!

    You and your machine have done a marvelous job!

    You have had me confused in buying my next bike. Before following your thread, I had finalized Suzuki GD 110. But now I cannot help myself from wanting to get my hands on a Ravi Piaggio 125.

    Dear i expected atleast 45-50 km/l from it. as from my small tours i am getting 45-50l average on Piaggio.
    well good thing was also petrol tank capacity of almost 14 ltrs.

    As i want to ad one thing more, many people asked me that did bike decreased oil level, as i changed oil almost every 700-800km so dint notice the reduced gauge,
    Secondly i noticed after heating up means after 5-6 hrs continues drive it was more aggressive, as heating pick was more better as initially took half throttle or full throttle for 100-120km/hr, but after heating up it was like just touch of throttle and it was reaching 100 i dint understand this phenomenon.
    as i have not did my tuning yet just changed oil, yesterday after Ziarat tour went to Mechanic, he checked and said bike is OK, if u say i will give tuning or other wise its 100 % ok, just chain is little lose so tighten that, well planing to go tomorrow to mechanic and recheck everything,

    so some one asked for tappets or everything else,
    i think as brake leather should be finished. need to adjust chain (given oil in all the way countinuesly afet every 500-600km)
    air filter thoroughly cleaned on every oil changed and when ever felt is needed. tires are in perfect condition, as my bike was 0 meter just 1700km driven before this tour, so i think it dint broke anything, man this tour was really for men not for children's,
    luckily dint got any big trouble like current shortage or any part damage, even wet conditions were there,
    so planning to change brake leathers, will check chain, other things are OK, no tappet adjustment required.

    Nice clicks :-) Wish I could be a part of one such trip.

    Bro vicktulla, I was already confused between Suzuki GD 110 and Ravi Piaggio 125 after reading this particular thread. But finally deciding to go for Suzuki GD 110 due to its advanced (OHC) engine which is more powerful, economical, smooth, vibration-less, and quiet :-)

    Long Riders from Lahore, please start a thread if you are planning a tour after Ramazan. By then Insha Allah I would have bough my Suzuki GD 110 and I would love to go on a long route on it.

    Even if I do finalize my decision about Piaggio, I'll keep my cg with me.

    hamza I don't think it would be a good Idea for you to go for a paiggio .. I usually never recommend a paiggio who has spent some age with CG... it doesnt matches his requirements .. I mean it.
