    Thumbs down Alarming situation of Ravi Piaggio latest model users-Buyers

    This thread is to Update motorcyclist that there has been a important information which must be shared and spread to any one who is looking for buying a new ride.

    I don't know and I am not aware of all the bikes which are offered in Pakistani markets but as I had owned Ravi's 125 model specifically Storm 125 which is sold under a flagship of Piaggio Italy, so lots of people have been following and buying 125 given the peoples experience shared by me and many other riders.

    I have been constantly contacted by many Latest model RP users who bought it this year (2014) which is going to be last year in couple of days and had some problem in there bike which was coming under warranty so they made a claim and are still waiting for there claim to be furnished un till now there warranty period's have started to expire.

    As per users claims that the Higher Officials from Factory and claim chain are making lame excuses to every other biker who is trying to reach out.

    One fine example which i know for sure is Mr @faizandawood007 who claimed mandatory faulty parts likt bad Seat, faulty meter and a cracked front light in initial days after receiving his bike but now his Warranty period is about to expire but his claim is still not furnished he even talked to there higher management but went all in vain.

    So he reached out to me that what should be done, we can always have a workaround but this is very Disappointing, this is a very good bike but it will badly fail buy the people who are importing it.

    So My Advice is :

    1 - if you really want to buy a Storm - make Your mind - there is no after market support or you will have to adapt for alternatives to manage it on the long run.

    2 - Most people look towards me that I also own a old Storm if i can maintain it then they can too... Please remember The Storm you guys see under my A$$ has only a feul tank and frame of Storm nothing else belong to Piaggio or Ravi.

    Recently I remember Suzuki motors, specially GS150 was sent in market with large number of fauly peices even frames were bent or misaligned and some body did reached out to consumer courts.

    It all depends you are already bearing a pain after having a bad experience with your ride and how far you wana take it or shove it off.

    This is called a helping hand to the members here and around, giving correct and accurate information to friends, not being biased and forwarding the truth.


    @vickytulla : Thanks for sharing an active news for bikers.

    here is my two cents, that all who are victims should file a suit against RP on a proper forum which is Consumer Courts! and don't delay this as Law only helps those who are vigilant about their rights.

    Bro no need to worry, Consumer Courts r functional in every district of Punjab if ur dealer or Manufacturer showed cold shoulder/deaf ear than simply serve them a notice through registered Post/Courier service and if ur grievance still left unheard then file a simple application in Consumer Court , feel free to ask any further details frm me if need be , will help u out

    Nice initiative @vickytulla. Very good step towards spreading awareness. Forget about warranty claims, they even don't have parts to sale as well. My bike is waiting for a new mud gaurd from many months. They are digging a big grave for their flagship product. Don't know what kind of business strategy (if there is any) it is. Taking 4 bikes in their neighbouring institute is making fool out of people is easy way, but maintain your after sale is difficult.

    I do not understand why are Ravi people doing it. I am afraid this bike will soon be confined to the history books (if such a thing exists)

    I posted a complaint on official website and also followed them on their fb official page. As expected, I am getting following pathetic and senseless replies.

    So here is my story
    Bought RP125 at the end of july and had its meter and headlight claimed at the beginning of august and now its ending of december and still nothing, all i got was
    shipment a rai hy
    shipment pohanch gai hy
    shipment open ho rai hy
    shipment lahore a rai hy and so on and on
    in the mean time had some more issues, but i thought once i get new meter and headlight than i will get these things claimed but after a looooong wait had to get those things repaired or changed from my pocket. For example
    Flickering Headlight - Due to faulty bulb, the light used to flicker at high revs got it checked and changed the bulb.
    Seat Issue - Seat cover had waves in it, seat was covering tank.
    Fuel Gauge - The fault was actually not in the meter but the gauge inside the tank had some issue took the mechanic around 3 hours to get it fixed
    Rear Brake Switch - Stopped working within a month got it replaced with Cd 70 switch.
    and a few more and some faults were discussed in my thread too ....
    The point is my bike haven't completed 3K and i,m already visiting mechanics and have spend more than 1.5 K while my bike is still under warranty.
    And ravi officials are like, seat is not under warranty, meter is not under warranty, electrics are not under warranty and headlight is under warranty and even ravi officials are't able to find one.
    For the first time now i'm suggesting everyone to either wait for Yamaha or go for GS150 and being an owner of rp my words does mean something to everyone who ask me about this bike. This is one hell of a bike, i,m in love with this bike, i love to ride it, it looks soooperb, its gadgets makes it fun but ravi is ruining every thing.....

    Exactly this is very sad... and I same case isd with me...I love this bike but I am totally fed up with the importers ...RAvi!

    Please visite there facebook page and see what Abdulrehman and me started there... Ravi officials have replied there and are willing to serve on priority basis if you follow there instructions to apply for claim online.

    I hope you get help this time.
