NAZA Premira Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor for Aprilia bikes in Malaysia, launched the latest edition of its most versatile bike yet – the 2013 Aprilia Caponord 1200 ABS, at Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre during the NST-Maybank Car of the Year 2013 (COTY) Awards.
Nik Danial Nik Mahmood, Vice President of NAZA Two Wheel Division was present to launch the 2013 Caponord 1200 ABS. The launch of this latest addition brings the total number of Aprilia models available in Malaysia to 9 models which include the RS4 125cc, Shiver 750cc, Dursoduro 750cc and 1200cc, Mana 800cc, Tuono V4 1000cc , RSV4 R 1000cc, and the Superbike World Champion the RSV4 R Factory. With the introduction of Caponord, Aprilia’s range of products is more extensive and can compete in almost every segment of the big bike market.
“This latest addition to the Aprilia stable of models will further increase the sales volume of Aprilia in Malaysia. Over the past six months of 2013, the registration volume of Aprilia has surpassed that of the whole 2012 volume. We expect to close the year with more than 400 registered units and a share of 7% of the big bike market – the best performance ever. We expect to further increase the sales of Aprilia in 2014, of which 25% is expected to be contributed by Caponord sales. The biggest volume will come from the popular Shiver 750,” commented Nik Danial.
