Dude I never heared or read from any piaggio owner that it is not reliable bike. Ask from piaggio owners ur self man. Check Ravi site for the tour and pics of some guys there who went to northern areas. Ask vicky and silver knife and ask those who went to northern areas. No one here lie with you at least not me. Whatever bike you buy bro none of us will get any single penny from any company nor these will be our loss.
To be honest after reading your new posts I will suggest you go for Ravi Piaggio Storm with close eyes. Nothing can be perfect at least in our local market, same goes with cars situation.
Piaggio is not perfect too but its near the perfection when we compare it to other bikes available in same CC class and price, it seems a very good option. Every product have it's own pros and cons.
Piaggio is stylish beautiful, almost same fuel average of 70cc, got disc brakes, self start and many other features. What else you want?
Regarding suzuki sprinter/raider buddy remember suzuki buyers buy original parts from 5s shops. Original parts are always costly either you buy suzuki or honda parts. Visit market yourself and check honda bikes spare parts + prices you will find many variety different prices different qualities. CG125, CD70 original parts are also costly.
And yes I am not an owner of Piaggio. I own 2 bikes Eagle Firebird and Metro both Chonda's. Previously owned 2x CG 125 Pointer and CDI.
Another suggestion for you is if you can compromise on looks then go for Suzuki GS150. Power, comfort = Beast
Now its up to you. Good luck for the bike hunt.
And keep in mind one thing dear whatever you buy Suzuki Hayabusa, Honda CBR, R1 or any bike/car you have to take care of your ride. If you will not care and don't maintain your ride, it does not matter whichever ride u have 50k one, 1 lac or 13lacs one it will be destroyed.
@Those who says Piaggio is not available in market these days, let me make a correction here. Yesterday I visited McLeod road lahore. I saw 3 piaggiao's in one showroom and some in others. It seems Ravi is improving.
Pardon me if I hurt your or someone feelings.
