I went to TUNE my RIDE at Ravi Paiggo claim center at Mcloed ROAD and I was shocked to hear this:
I just learned from a HKF ravi claim center couple of days back a very strange and rather Disturbing news regarding HONDA 125.
from decades back PAKISTAN ARMY and PUNJAB Police tenders for bikes are won by ATLAS Honda AHL or in some cases suzukis 2 strokers.
But claim center owner told me unfortunately 2011 tenders of 5000 bikes of 125 cat. opened by Pakistan Army is handed our to the HKF Paiggo Ravi 125 namely (STORM Bike).
The guy I met at claim center told me that the army inspection team rejected honda 125 and selected storm 125 pointing the latest equip and tech found in Storm (and better priced) and made a special note that they are disappointed by the ignorance of new standards by Honda and such a high price.
I actually argued with the claim center owner that why no knew storm 125 are comming on road , he explained the the manufac. facilty of HFK is small and has a less through put, even Ravi 70 production is on halt after they won the second tender of 7~8000 bike of Punjab police, they are focusing more on completion of consignments with Govt.
I am not sure about this just heard it as a rumor before but now i have seen the sample bikes my self I am seriously doubting on AHL, I just saw army sample 125/150 (not sure it was which cat.) on the claim center parked inside he couldn't let me in, or i could have took pics but you can check picture of army storm bike on paiggo threads pictures are already on PakWheels (H).
This is now seriously alarming for AHL Honda
they need to do some thing.
