    Default A New Ravi 70 2016

    About couple of months ago, I started a thread asking for opinions of respected PakWheelers for non-honda 70cc bikes as I needed a small bike. Even though I had the budget for 75K for this purchase but I was curious to find out how our Pakitsani manufacturers are doing and what they are producing.

    Here is my referenced thread:
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/gen...ikes-super-bad

    However, due to awfully busy schedule, I couldn't get the time for it but today, I finally did it.
    I purchased the bike on cash and today's price was 43K.

    First Impressions:
    I drove the bike for like 5 km or so from showroom to friend's home where I parked my bike and went home on car. I'll get my bike tomorrow .

    So, the bike is silent, smooth, no vibrations so far as I drove up to like 50 km/h speed.

    Observations:
    People who live in Rawalpindi might thought that why I didn't go to a big name like "Motorcycle Plaza" guys for this purchase and the reason is that I wanted to see all the bikes by myself and wanted to inspect them before actually making a purchase so I reviewed Super Star, Union Star, Zimco, Ravi, Honda, United & Unique. The dealer had all the bikes. My experience with this dealer was good as he answered all of my questions with smile.

    I personally find Ravi's quality a bit better in terms of handlebar controls, tail light, battery compartment, shine, overall quality, etc. The worse quality I found in Union star and Zimco. When I slide my finger over Zimco's tapa's sticker, it started coming off. WoW.

    Anyways, I then opted out for the Ravi Humsafar Plus with 78cc engine.

    I purchased this bike in evening so pics' quality is bit low but I'll be sharing better quality (day time) pics on weekend, perhaps, Sunday.

    So far, I think, it's a good purchase if I keep in view my expectations which I mentioned in detail in aforementioned referenced thread.

    Now, I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU TO @salmanrasheedpsh for creating following thread that I was silently following:

    Thanks. Yes, your thread was very helpful in helping me decide and after checking all the bikes, I still believe that Ravi is good brand in the 2016.
    So far, there is absolutely no vibrations up to speed of 50 km/h as I'm doing running by keeping the bike between 40 and 50 km/h.
    Today is the second day of my ownership of this bike and total running is 15 kilometers.
    I'll keep this thread updated as I bought this bike out of curiosity to see how Pakistani manufacturers are doing.

    Ok, the Ravi bike is about to complete 1000 kilometers (current meter reading is 913 km) so here is my review and experience:

    Initial Running:
    From first 200 kilometers, my average speed was 45 km/h (that means 40 to 50 km/h was the speed bracket)
    From 200 to 500, average speed speed was 50 (that means 45 to 55 km/h was the speed bracket)
    Oil changed when odometer reading was 326 to zic 20w-40.
    After completing 500 km, I pushed the bike with very, very slow acceleration to 70 (done only once).
    After completing 500 kilometers,
    going to 50 km/hr speed was without any trouble then bike asks for a pretty wide open accelerator to go beyond 55/60 km/h speed.
    up-to the speed of exact 50, there are no vibrations.
    After the speed of 50, I started noticing kir-kir sound from engine and vibrations starts to build up. At the speed of 60, vibration was pretty noticeable.
    After completing 700 kilometers, my average speed was 60 (that means 55 to 65 speed bracket).
    After completing 800 kilometers, my average speed was of 65 (that means 50 to 70) - vibrations that starts to build up after 50, now starts to build up after 60. At this point, I notice no vibrations up-to the speed of 50 and unnoticeable vibrations from 50 to the speed of 60. After 60, vibrations become very noticeable.

    Fuel Economy:
    Initial tank fill was of 10 liters (half liter from the dealer and 9.5 from the petrol pump).
    First refill was of 8.21 liters when odometer was on 466.3 (average: 56.80)
    second refill was confusing (I think, I got ditched but I'm not sure).
    Second refill was of 7.23 when odometer was on 868.7 (average: 55.67) costing Rs. 470 (when I saw the meter of petrol pump) but petrol pump guy has charged me 570 - when I asked him to show the meter, the other guy was already started filling other bike - he then he got confused so I'm not sure what's the average of second refill. If actual petrol fill was of Rs. 570 then it means the 8.83 liter was poured into the bike that makes the average of 45.46.

    Vibrations - @salmanrasheedpsh, it's for you, buddy.
    Initially, vibrations starts to build up at the speed of 45, after few couple hundred kilometers, vibration starts on 50 then on 55 and now vibrations start at the speed of 60

    I'll update my review again after the first service and then later after completing 2000 kilometers on this bike.

    Top Speed:
    After completing 850 kilometers, I tried to achieve the top speed with with normal acceleration (I mean, throttle was not 100%) and I managed to push the bike to 80 km/h. Then I open the throttle to full and then the bike goes to 82/83 km/h.

    Question about OIL Capacity & Quantity:
    I used to buy 1 liter of oil when owning GS150 & YBR but for this bike, owner manual says the oil capacity is 0.8 liters and in the market, I can't find any oil which comes with 0.8 liter box. Most of the oils comes either with 0.7 or 1.0 liter.
    So, if you know any oil that comes with 0.8 liter box, please mention.
