This 28th to 29th July 2018 weekend is the most hectic for us than ever before, as motorcycle events are stacked on one another, albeit at different locations.
That means you are spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what to do over the weekend. Here is the list the events by region for your easy reference.
Karnival Bikers Gen Blue Yamaha (Yamaha Gen Blue Bikers Carnival) is happening at Stadium Batu Kawan, Penang on Sunday, 29th July 2018.
Touted as the largest gathering for Yamaha motorcycle owners, the event includes the launch of a new Yamaha model. There will also be activities for the whole family, besides convoys to the event, best custom Yamaha competition, stunt show, gymkhana, service campaign, rock concert, fun and games, test rides, motorcycle showcase and lucky draws.
The Karnival Bikers Gen Blue Yamaha begins at 10am and ends at 6pm. Entry is FREE.
Suzuki Malaysia is opening the Suzuki Direct Shop in Penang on Saturday, 28th July 2018.
To commemorate the opening, there will be a convoy for Suzuki big capacity bikes from Suzuki Assemblers Malaysia’s HQ at Prai at 10am.
Additionally, the company is organizing a test ride event at the same venue which is hilariously titled as “Suzuki Test Ride @ Penag (sic)” on their Facebook page.
The national superbike racing series returns after a hiatus since mid-May, and it’s worth the wait. Round 2 will be held at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC).
The latest news has it that Malaysia’s current Moto3 rider, Muhammad Adam Norrodin, will contest in the SuperSport 600 class; the Asia Talent Cup will also join the party; as well as the addition of the TOC Desmo Cup for Ducati riders.
Grandstand viewing is free, but spectators may purchase special paddock passes to view the action up close.
Action starts today (Friday, 27th July 2018) for the qualifying sessions, Race 1 on Saturday (28th July 2018) and Race 2 on Sunday (29th July) for all classes.
The Art of Speed (AOS) is the largest gathering of custom builders, retro, ol’ skool and artists for everything automotive.
But that’s just part of the story because there’s always something for everyone in the family at AOS. There are art shows, toy displays, lo-riders (customized bicycles), concerts, and a lucky draw with a custom motorcycle as the grand prize.
Motorcycle manufacturers large and small will also be present, and the likes of Ducati and Kawasaki will use AOS as the platform to launch their latest models.
AOS has prepared the event thoroughly to make your visit an unforgettable experience. They’ve organized shuttles to transport you and your family from the parking lots to the exhibition halls, for example. Or conversely, you may choose to get there by MyCar who are offering RM3 off the total amount by using AOS2018 promo code.
The 7th Annual Art of Speed 2018 powered by Petronas will be held at MAEPS MARDI, Serdang on both Saturday (28th July) and Sunday (29th July).
Down south in Johore, KTM Malaysia is organizing the first stop for the KTM Malaysia Orange Carnival 2018.
Held at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) campus at Skudai, Johore, the carnival is a one-day affair, filled to the gills with a heady mix of activities for KTM owners, bikers in, motorcycle enthusiasts and the general public and families.
Planned are test rides of the latest KTM models, a fun-hana (gymkhana), service campaign, lucky draw (stand to win a KTM Duke 390 as the grand prize), stunt show by Gabit Saleh and much more.
KTM Malaysia will also launch the latest KTM 200 Duke Evo on the day.
