Bulatan Bazarena, Shah Alam, 14 May 2017 – Bulatan Bazarena came alive with lime green livery, great music and various Kawasaki motorcycles circulating around a specially prepared course as thousands showed up at Kawasaki Malaysia’s “Always Close to You” Test Ride Roadshow.
Kawasaki Motors (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (KMSB) had put together this roadshow to allow the general public to sample their latest offerings, including the Versys-X 250, Ninja 650 ABS, Z650 ABS and Z900 ABS, besides the J300 maxi scooter, KLX150 enduro, and Z125 play bike. All attendees had the chance to test ride every single motorcycle.
All participants walked away impressed by their experience, but more so the Versys-X 250 as it was lightweight, nimble and easily accessible.
The course was specially prepared by Motack Motorcycle Gymkhana purveyor, Harris Iskandar Taib and his organization HIT Communications.
Each attendee received a test ride ticket upon registration and will in turn stand a chance for the lucky draw to win Kawasaki goodies.
Other attractions included a Kawasaki ZX-10R which “replicated” the factory machines ridden by WSBK Champion Johnny Rea and his teammate (an ex-WSBK Champion himself) Tom Sykes.
KMSB also offered motorcycle servicing free of labour charges. The servicing was conducted by trained specialists from KMSB’s Exclusive Kawasaki Service Centre in Glenmarie, Shah Alam.
Additionally, RK-M Malaysia and Sinar Puncak (official distributor of Shoei helmets and Alpinestars products), Bridgestone tyres, AEON Credit Services, Tokio Marine Insurance and Nestle Malaysia were on site to provide support and brighten up the carnival even further.
KMSB has planned for many more such activities in the near future, at a location “Always Close to You,” so stay tuned.
