Yamaha YZF-R15 V1 in Malaysia at GTMax?

Yamaha YZF-R15 at GTMax

GTMax has updated their FB page with this picture of a YZF-R15. Usually they post the lineup of the bike that they are selling. Based on the comment I have read on the page, the price for this bike is said to be at RM14,000. Not sure whether it is true or not. If it is true, then we have more choice for 150cc bike other than its similar sibling in naked style, the FZ-150i from Yamaha. BTW, this R15 is 6-speed yo.

Modenas Dinamik 120cc 2-stroke is back?

This picture if Modenas Dinamik is posted just a few hours ago by Syamsul Azwan Adry Azem on his FB. It got new orange livery which looks quite good. This 6-speed bike has been released long time ago but has been out of sight for many years, but there some rare occurance where I can see them in the Malaysian road. If this bike is coming back in production, it will fight nicely with Yamaha 125ZR.

The Modenas Dinamik 120 price is RM5,749 which is cheap considered it is equipped with front and rear brake, 6-speed transmission and monoshock suspension.

I don’t whether this is true or not, I’m sharing what I know to you all and hope you can share your valuable info too.

Scorpion Exhaust for KTM Duke 200

A quick move by QBEE Motor to introduce the hand crafted performance exhaust from Scorpion to the KTM Duke 200. There are 3 variant to choose from that is the Serket Taper Carbon Fiber, Brushed Stainless and Titanium. Power will definitely increase and at the same time you can enjoy silent sound if you want to with the application of DB killer. Also, the slip-on is lighter compared to the stock muffler.

After knowing that the Ninja 250R launched in Malaysia, we, riders are definitely happy and can’t wait to see in our own eyes (I know I am). Before doing that, let us see the features and specs and that leaves us all drooling.

 

2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R came in a design that is edgy with lots of dynamic lines that exudes the sense of speed and style. On the side, the fairing with the black ‘spacer’ in the middle makes it looks less heavy that the previous version of it. It now look lighter now. One of the most interesting visual here is the new wheel. It is a 5  ‘Y’ spoke design is thinner bar and gives a fresh modern look for it.  Continue reading “Gallery: Kawasaki Ninja 250R 2013 features and specs – RM22,589 basic price – topspeed 167km/h”

New Ninja 250R and Z800 2013 has arrived to Malaysia! 250R – RM22,589 & Z800 – RM47,989

After being launched in Indonesia, then brought to Thailand, it is only logical that this 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Z800 should come to our ground too. That that time is now. Kawasaki Motors Malaysia are now bringing the new bikes to Malaysia with the launch ceremony at Sunway Convention Hall. The pricing is not known yet, but will update as soon as we got the info. 

UPDATE I & II: Just got to know the confirmed price:

2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R price is less than RM25k RM22,589 (not OTR)

2013 Kawasaki z800 price is less than RM45k RM47,989 (not OTR)

UPDATE II:

The Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Z800 is considered as ASEAN CKD. It is being manufactured in Thailand. Compared to previous Z750, it is considered CBU since it is made in Japan. The benefit of ASEAN CKD is that the tax supposedly lower than CBU. I’m not sure how it works in details, but it seem that the price is right for the Ninja 250R.
