GPX is a Thai motorcycle manufacturer. They produce the frames, bodywork and other parts of the motorcycle except for the running stock. The engines are built in China, but GPX stations their Thai and Japanese engineers at the production plant to monitor the quality closely.

The manufacturer is now the 3rdlargest selling brand in Thailand by volume. They are active in organizing rides and special events for their customers, such as the mega gathering at Hard Rock Café Siam Square in Bangkok.

GPX Legend 150 (from RM 8,XXX available from April 2019)

The Legend 150 is a retro model for those who like simplicity and customization. Indeed, the Legend is bare-bones in its stock form.

This model is already doing very well in Thailand, its country of origin. The customizers in that country have shown off a number of awe-inspiring customs. The long bench-seat and fuel lends that classic 1950’s look.

As such, it should bode well for motorcycle fans in Malaysia who wish to own a motorcycle which reflects their own personalities, instead of owning something which you could find anywhere.

The Legend 150 is powered a 150cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. From our observation, the powerplant looks solidly-built with fine finishing.

The chassis handled by a pair of telescopic forks and a pair of shocks at the rear. The frame is a welded spaceframe which utilizes the engine as a stressed member.

GPX Gentleman 200 (from RM 10,980)

The Gentleman is GPX’s café racer in the lineup.

The model has a number of interesting features:
  • LED running lights and taillight.

  • LCD instrument display (meter).

  • A shapely fuel tank with Monza-style fuel cap.

  • Stitched seats, rear seat cowl.

  • A large round airbox which kind of looks like an intake for a turbocharger.

  • Sculpted subframe and tailsection.
  • Upside-down forks.

  • Monoshock rear suspension.

The Gentleman is powered by a 200cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. The quality of the components can readily be seen.

This model is also very popular in Thailand and hundreds of owners will turn up for convoys.

GPX Demon GPR 150 (from RM 9,XXX available from February 2019)

Mini-Panigale? You bet!

The Demon GPR’s styling takes after the already gorgeous Ducati Panigale with a number of differences.

For example, there are also LED running lights sited in where the air intakes of the Panigale are.

  • Aggressive raptor fully-LED headlamps.

  • LED taillight.

  • Full-fairing with which has slats and vents.

GPX Demon GN 150 (from RM 8,XXX available from March 2019)

The Demon GN is the “naked” version of the Demon GPR. It takes the look of a streetfighter.

  • Fully-LED taillight.
  • Split, sporty seats.
  • Upside-down forks, monoshock rear suspension.

The way we look at it, the Demon GN

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
