  • As part of their recognition of Harley-Davidson owners and groups, Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya plays host to their rides and activities.

  • The latest group to congregate at HDPJ was Kingz MG on their ride to the East Coast.

  • HDPJ supported the ride by providing technical support and Lucky Draw vouchers.

The setting of Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya (HDPJ) has truly benefitted Harley owners. As part of a service to owners, HDPJ played host to Kingz Motorcycle Group (MG) as a stop on their wide-ranging ride over the Malaysia Day weekend, from 14th to 16th September 2018.

The ride is part of a larger event called Eat, Travel, Ride International 2.0. The program is sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, among others. The ride covers Kuala Lumpur, Pahang and Terengganu.

Kingz MG’s riders began the ride at the KL Tower and proceeded to Muzium Negara (National Museum) for a photoshoot and rode to HDPJ afterwards for another round of photoshoot.

HDPJ supported the ride by providing a support truck and technical personnel in addition to Lucky Draw vouchers for the ride’s annual dinner when the group reaches Kuala Terengganu. HDPJ Assistant Director, Chris Ruxton presented the group a plaque as a sign of support for the brotherhood.

It was a straight shot to Cherating for lunch before hooking up with Iron Head MG in Kemaman, Terengganu. The group stopped for the night at Marang.

Other activities planned for the ride were stops and photoshoots at unique attractions in the East Coast such as the Masjid Kristal (Crystal Mosque), Pantai Penarik, lunch at KT Durian Burung, an orphanage, Pantai Monica, all in Terengganu.

The total ride distance is 460 km, return. There were more than one hundred participants, not counting those from Iron Head MG.


  • Harley-Davidson of Petaling (HDPJ) called upon Harley owners for a “shop talk.”

  • The talk covered technical, features of the 2018 Softail range.

  • The talk included the brake service campaign, introduction to the new engine and bikes, and Motorclothes.

Knowing you’re riding the best motorcycle is one thing, learning about what makes it tick is quite another level altogether.

Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya decided to impart their knowledge of the brand to owners by holding a “shop talk,” where they interact with Harley-Davidson specialists about their bikes, myths, service campaigns and new products.

The event got off to a start with the presentation of the brake service campaign. As we reported earlier (please click here for the article), the Motor Company had decided to recall 2008 to 2011 Touring, CVO Touring and V-Rod models with ABS to have their brake fluid replaced. Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya (HDPJ) has received the new Platinum Line Brake Fluid and is set to get the campaign rolling.

HDPJ’s Technical Specialist also informed the owners that a motorcycle’s brake fluid has to be replaced every 2 years, regardless of mileage covered.

If you own any of the above models, please get in touch with HDPJ’s Service Department to determine if your Harley is affected.

HDPJ moved on to present the new Milwaukee-Eight engine and 2018 Harley-Davidson lineup. Presentation was first carried out on the screen before being moved to the new Fat Bob and Street Glide on display. Those present had the firsthand view of the new features on the new models, such better suspension, brakes, styling. Harleys are truly much more refined these days, without losing their identity.

Do note that Harley’s Shop Talk sessions aren’t one-way traffic; owners were encouraged to formulate their questions when the invitation was published. Therefore, there were many questions, a few myths and concerns that were raised. HDPJ addressed them expertly and professionally.

Lastly, HDPJ presented the 2018 Motorclothes lineup. Motorclothes is Harley-Davidson’s official range of rider wear which consists of everything a Harley owner could think of, plus plenty of Harley-Davidson paraphernalia and merchandise.

Seeing that the owners adjourned feeling elated, they must’ve gained some new knowledge of their trusty steeds from the shop talk.


  • The new Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya is offering great ways to those who want to get into the Harley lifestyle.

  • Costs of ownership and maintenance are now more viable at HDPJ.

  • HDPJ has waived the localisation fee for Harleys purchased via parallel importers.

Owning a motorcycle should be a great joy to anyone but owning one from a brand steeped in history and heritage is extra special. It’s through this heritage that the look, feel and sound of the bike, how it rumbles to life and down the road with the wind in your face flies in the face of convention. Additionally, the lifestyle, camaraderie among the owners and convoy experiences are priceless.

But how much does one need to “relinquish” for a “membership?”

We’ve heard great things about the new Harley-Davidson dealership, Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya (HDPJ), and decided to snoop around.

What we found was HDPJ is attracting more riders in Malaysia to experience the world of Harley-Davidson, through more attractive financing, lower costs of ownership and professional aftersales service.


  • Non-discriminatory policy towards all Harley owners, regardless if the bikes were purchased previously through official channels or parallel importers.
  • No “localization fee” for “recon” Harleys and all owners will enjoy the same labour rates and parts prices.
  • The showroom is fully stocked but the workshop is extensive as HDPJ is focusing on aftersales.

  • The previous hourly labour rate was too high, so HDPJ reduced it accordingly.
  • Parts prices are also lower than before despite the high USD-MYR exchange rate.

  • A Harley-Davidson Standard Service means a 24-point check all around the motorcycle for functionality and safety, which includes lubing the cables, checking the battery and electrics, electronic diagnostics, inspecting if all fasteners are properly torqued, inspecting the drive belt and pulleys, inspecting the brake pads and discs (with proper tools), etc. etc.


  • A minimum price to service a Sportster 883 complete with the 24-point check, standard replacement of washers, Harley-Davidson engine oil, and 1.5-hour labour charge adds up to below RM400.

  • Compare that to this Editor’s personal experience of servicing his Kawasaki ER-6f (at non-official workshops). Two liters of fully-synthetic engine oil, oil filter and two sparkplugs already cost in the vicinity of RM380 – without the 24-point check.

  • Besides that, a stator coil for the ER-6f is nearly RM1,300; compared to the stator coil for the Harley-Davidson Softail is RM1,400.


  • HDPJ has also priced the new Harleys more “realistically” by 5% to 25% lower across the board.

  • The 2018 (base) Sportster Forty-Eight is priced from RM 92,800, instead of RM 109,000 that it once was.

  • The new Street Bob is from RM 107,200 instead of RM 130K plus.

  • Attractive financing scheme for buyers – 3.5% per annum – the lowest in the industry.

We also decided to ask a couple of Harley riders hanging around the café at The Gasket Alley. The first person was pleasantly surprised by the much lower price of maintenance. The other person we spoke felt at home at the new Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya, being welcomed and as part of a family.

It looks like Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya is worth visiting. So, book an appointment today for a test ride or service via Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya’s official website. You may also visit their official Facebook page for the latest updates.

  • As promised by Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya during their launch, there will be many rides and activities.

  • Apart for the inaugural Harley Owners Group of Petaling Jaya ride last month, the Sportster Malaysia group held their 4th Annual Run today.

  • Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya welcomed the return of the Sportster Malaysia group.

30th March 2018, Petaling Jaya – The Sportster Malaysia 4th Annual Run got off to a great start today.

As promised by the new Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya (HDPJ) during their official launch, the Sportster Malaysia 4th Annual Run is one of many activities to come for Harley owners. Starting from here, there will be more ambitions rides in the future.

The ride began at the Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya (HDPJ) dealership. Some 35 riders on 30 motorcycles assembled at The Gasket Alley from 7.30am. HDPJ provided a light breakfast and refreshments for the riders while awaiting the flag off.

A safety briefing was called afterwards and participants were given a explanation of safe riding techniques in the convoy, such as spacing, formation riding, hand signals, and road etiquettes They were also briefed on the route and filling points, with attention given to those bikes with the peanut tanks (8 litres). The convoy will ride through towns such as Batu Pahat on the way to their destination at the Mutiara Hotel in Johor Bahru.

The ride was flagged off at 9.30am, with the bigger bikes leading the convoy.

Have a safe ride, guys and gals!

The new dealership is the first in a “refreshed” independent dealer network in Malaysia; and since Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya (HDPJ) is located at the Gasket Alley, the showroom will be operated under the care of Goh Brothers Motorcycles Sdn. Bhd. Goh Brothers Motorcycles Sdn. Bhd. is part of Goh Brothers Capital, who are well-known specialists for several automotive brands in Malaysia.

The 20,000 sq. ft. (1858 sq. m.) dealership will offer the complete range of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, consisting of the 2018 Softail family, Road Glide Special and especially the limited edition 115th Anniversary. The Harley-Davidson Motor Company is celebrating its 115th anniversary this year. A Harley-Davidson dealership is incomplete if without offering official merchandize, Motorclothes, parts and accessories.

Harley has always known that great bikes must be supported by great aftersales service. HDPJ promises the best-in-class aftersales service, besides the complete inventory of parts. Additionally, there are six fully-equipped service bays, together with a body and paint centre. The technicians at HDPJ all are trained at the Harley-Davidson University.

Customary to Harley’s dealerships, HDPJ is set to announce the formation of a new HOG (Harley Owners’ Group) Petaling Jaya Chapter Malaysia. It’s through HOG that Harley owners maintain their brand loyalty and share a common interest, hence building a sense of camaraderie. HDPJ will organize more rides, activities and events in the future, starting with 500 riders joining the Petaling Jaya Chapter Malaysia’s inaugural ride tomorrow (10th March 2018) from HDPJ to Tanjung Malim. There’ll be another 1,500 Harley-Davidson owners who will celebrate the opening of the new dealership upon their return from the ride.

At today’s launch catered to the media, the luminaries present were Mr. Johan Kleinsteuber, Managing Director of Harley-Davidson Asia Emerging Markets (whom we’ve interviewed previously); Mr. Rewi Hamid Bugo, Chairman of DIDI Resources Sdn. Bhd., and Mr. Goh Kian Sin, Chairman of Goh Brothers Motorcycles Sdn. Bhd, along with a large number of Harley owners.

The media was given the first look of the completed showroom, where the first three owners of the motorcycles purchased from HDPJ unveiled their bikes. They then adjourned to the service reception and the workshop afterwards.
