Ever wondered about some great motorcycle products made here in good ol’ Malaysia? Here are some good examples to give your motorcycles that extra oomph!
With so many motorcycles available in our Malaysian market, it is not a surprise to see some people taking the opportunity out of the demand and passion to deliver some awesome products to further enhance your riding experience.
Some local folks not only took this as a prospect to provide exceptional motorcycle parts and products to the local market but managed to break into the international scene to make some of them best sellers in their own respective categories. We know that there are a lot more but here are some prime examples of locally-made products from good ol’ Malaysia.
1) Racing Boy
After rebranding to the name Racing Boy in 1998, Mr Lee Meng Teck, a humble mechanic from Bukit Mertajam, and his brothers managed to score a deal with a Shanghai’s OEM (original equipment manufacturer) to start designing, developing and producing Racing Boy products. In 2002, they became the first ever local manufacturer to offer coloured rims to these small capacity motorcycles.
With great response from riders and customers for their aesthetics as well as product performance, Racing Boy broke into the Malaysian Cub Prix scene in 2004 and like magic, the teams sponsored by Racing Boy started to win races. Till this very day, Racing Boy remains as one of the major sponsors for the Malaysian Cub Prix.
With wins comes more acknowledgement and then it was followed by bigger capitals gains and expansions. That led to more Racing Boy products and in 2007, they started exporting to other South East Asia countries as well as Greece in 2010.
To this day, Racing Boy has won several awards including “2nd Asia Success Award” from the International Organizing Committee, “Super Golden Product” from Asia Success Inc. for their motorcycle rim products and finally the “11th Asia Pacific Top Excellence Brand” by the Asia Pacific Excellence Entrepreneur Alliance.
If that does not impress you, Racing Boy is also one of the sponsors for the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP squad with Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales. CLICK HERE to know more about Racing Boy.
2) Tune Boss
The brain child of two computer engineers back in 2011, Tune Boss was developed by FSR Technology and their two founders, Mr Farhan and Mr Suffian. Focused on building real-time embedded control systems, Tune Boss specializes in aftermarket ECU products for fuel-injected motorcycles.
Everything about Tune Boss has been developed in-house by these two geniuses and results have been pouring in. With their latest products catering to increasing performance for Honda and Yamaha bikes, their products are currently being used actively in the Malaysian Cub Prix and also the Malaysian Superbike Championship under the 250cc category.
Their ECUs are so good that they have exported their products to countries like Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and even European countries as well as Mexico. These are possible due to the fact that their ECUs are of the ‘Plug and Play’ variant and require no extra complex wiring to install.
What makes them even more special is that the ECUs are Bluetooth ready that can be set wirelessly via the Tune Boss app using any smart phone. Through the app, one can obtain ‘keys’ to unlock the extra features such as the quick shifter for race use.
