National motorcycle maker, MODENAS held a grand event celebrating the two Pulsar models.
Many activities were carried out throughout the day.
Main lucky draw prize was a brand new Pulsar NS200.
Speedway PLUS Karting Circuit, 23rd December 2017 – There’s little doubt that the Modenas Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar RS200 is enjoying brisk sales and popular following since its launch earlier this year. It’s therefore high time Modenas to call for a gathering, called “Modenas Pulsar Power Test.”
The event kicked off with a Modenas Pulsar Owners Club (MPOC) convoy from the Modenas Emos headquarters in Glenmarie, Shah Alam to the circuit (more popularly known as the “Elite Circuit” or just “Elite”). More than 400 participants had started congregating there from 7am. The convoy got going at 8am and reached the circuit at 9am for the start of the event.
There were even more participants who went straight to Elite circuit, bringing the total to nearly 1,800 participants judging from the serial number of registered participants. While the majority were from the Klang Valley, many had rode all the way in from all regions in Peninsular Malaysia, including Penang, the East Coast, Johor, et al.
Modenas has set up many activities throughout the day. Modenas had also prepared 20 new Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar RS200 just for this event.
The main event was the “Power Test Ride” whereby existing owners and interested parties had the opportunity to test ride both the NS200 and RS200 on the track itself. Safety was the main concern and every test ride participant must wear the proper riding gear in order to be allowed onto the track.
The test ride was conducted in groups and a Modenas Cub Prix rider led them out on the sighting lap before waving the participants through to ride around at their own pace.
Outside the track, Modenas has set up special booths to service the customers’ bikes, while also offering service parts to owners such as engine oil, oil filter, spark plugs, air filter, and battery. Owners were also offered the opportunity to have their bikes’ electronic systems checked using the special diagnostic tester.
The slip road next to the booths were cordoned off all the way to the roundabout to form a straight-line acceleration test and slalom course, called “Power Time Attack.”
Up the little slope, an area was designated for stunt performance where the stunt riders performed wheelies, stoppies, burnouts of every sort.
Next to the stunt area was where the “Power Corner” demonstration and trials were carried out. The Modenas Cub Prix riders demonstrated the ability of the Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar RS200 could turn in a tight circle given a confined space, besides how stable the bikes were when leaned all the way over even at slow speeds. The riders did their circles with their knees fully planted onto the tarmac!
It wasn’t only about the motorcycle per se, as Modenas had called upon a few food trucks to provide sustenance to the participants. Here, a band played some great music, led by a girl with amazing vocals.
Prominent motorcycle luggage, riding gear and accessories manufacturer GIVI was also on-site with their event bus, displaying the options available for the two Pulsars. GIVI has also loaned full faced helmets to the participants who took part in the test rides.
Modenas carried out lucky draws throughout the day, giving away some great prizes. The last draw of the day was carried out at 5pm to determine the lucky winner of a brand new Pulsar NS200.
It was a great event from Modenas and we are happy to see the national brand thriving.
