A Facebook user shared an unfortunate incident in which the brakes of his motorcycle were stolen in Penang on Monday.

According to the Facebook user, Zul Aziz, the brake callipers of his Honda X-ADV 750 motorcycle was stolen despite parking it at the main entrance of the hotel.

The victim also expressed disappointment with the hotel management, not only for failing to take responsibility for the incident but also for not placing enough emphasis on security, even though the motorcycle was parked right at the hotel lobby entrance.

A similar incident has occurred in the past involving a group of riders from Thailand and France.

In a bid to further advance the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in Malaysia, the Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Industry (Miti) has presented a proposal for an incentive targeted at promoting electric motorcycles within the B40 income group as part of the Budget 2024 deliberations.

The Deputy Secretary-General (Industry) of Miti, Hanafi Sakri, expressed his optimism about the proposal’s alignment with Malaysia’s overarching goal of bolstering the EV industry. Speaking at the International Electric Mobility Showcase (IEMS) 2023, Hanafi emphasized the importance of support from the finance ministry for the development of the EV sector.

“We hope for a positive response and that the finance ministry will support the development of the EV industry,” Hanafi stated during his remarks at IEMS.

He further highlighted the government’s dedication to enhancing the EV industry over the past two years by introducing a series of incentives aimed at stimulating both the demand and supply facets of the market.

As part of Malaysia’s broader efforts in the EV space, the nation has set a target of establishing 10,000 EV charging stations across the country by 2025. This infrastructure is set to consist of 9,000 slow-charging AC (alternating current) stations and 1,000 DC (direct current) stations. In line with this ambitious goal, the government anticipates the rollout of between 3,000 and 4,000 charging stations within the current year.

During a panel discussion at IEMS, Yusri Yusuf, the Senior Director of Corporate Strategy and Risk Management at Proton, provided insights into the company’s deliberate steps toward embracing EV technology. He highlighted the significance of three key factors for successful industrialization in the EV sector: policies, technological advancements, and consumer behavior.

“We recognize that three main factors are crucial for successful industrialization; policies, technological advancements, and consumer behavior,” Yusri stated. “Collaborating closely with a dependable technology partner is essential for these elements, and that’s our current focus.”

Wong Shi How, Executive Vice-President of Strategic Management and Corporate Affairs at Rapid Bus, contributed to the discussion by shedding light on the economic aspects of electric buses. While acknowledging that electric buses may have a higher initial purchase cost compared to their diesel counterparts, he emphasized the importance of considering the long-term value they offer.

“Prasarana uses the total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis, which looks beyond just the purchase price and into long-term costs like maintenance, repairs, and daily operations,” Wong explained. “Over time, EV buses are more cost-effective, with savings of roughly 30% in operational areas. Additionally, electricity, as fuel, has proven to be cheaper than diesel.”

These developments signify Malaysia’s commitment to fostering a robust and sustainable EV industry while addressing the specific needs and interests of various income groups, ultimately promoting the nation’s transition to cleaner and more eco-friendly transportation options.

Two icons of two-wheeled exhilaration are poised to ignite the Malaysian motorcycle scene as Edaran Modenas Sdn Bhd (EMOS), the official distributor of Kawasaki motorcycles in the country, unveils an electrifying announcement: the all-new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R and the eagerly-awaited Ninja ZX-4R are set to make their thunderous debut on Malaysian roads in 2024.

Roslan Roskan, Chief Executive Officer of Modenas, disclosed that the 2024 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is charging its way to Malaysian shores during the recently concluded Kawasaki X Modenas Green Mania held at Gamuda Cove, Dengkil. 

The Ninja ZX-6R flaunts its remarkable prowess after a comprehensive update to meet the stringent Euro5 homologation standards. Riding in tandem with the ZX-6R is the enigmatic Ninja ZX-4R, an exciting newcomer poised to carve its own niche in the world of high-performance motorcycles.

The spotlight shines brightest on the 2024 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, a testament to Kawasaki’s relentless pursuit of perfection. The centerpiece of this superbike is its reinvigorated 636cc liquid-cooled engine, meticulously tuned and tested to meet Euro5 standards—a remarkable achievement that sets it apart from its rivals, the Yamaha R6 and Honda CBR600RR. Not content with just compliance, Kawasaki engineers have pushed the boundaries, subjecting the engine to rigorous testing to ensure it surpasses expectations.

The Ninja ZX-6R’s update isn’t just under the hood; it boasts an array of advanced features that elevate its performance and rider experience. Showa’s Separate Function Big Piston Forks enhance handling, while a quickshifter and three-mode traction control system provide riders with unparalleled control.

Boasting a rev limit exceeding 15,000rpm, the ZX-4R inherits the DNA of its sibling, the ZX-25R, and shares the same trellis frame, showcasing Kawasaki’s commitment to innovation.

The suspension prowess of the Ninja ZX-4R is equally notable, thanks to Showa’s SFF-BP forks at the front and a horizontal back-link at the rear. Distinguishing the variants is the suspension package: the base model features SFF-BP forks, while the SE and RR boast front forks with preload adjustment. The RR, in particular, enjoys the Showa BFRC-lite rear shock, a nod to its high-performance lineage.

Technological wizardry is in full force with the Ninja ZX-4R, featuring all-LED lighting, Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), and an array of four power modes catering to varying riding conditions. The SE and RR versions elevate the experience with a two-way quickshifter and a 4.3-inch LCD color display replete with an integrated ‘Track Mode.’

As the countdown begins for the arrival of the new-gen Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R and the thrilling Ninja ZX-4R, the Malaysian motorcycle landscape is poised for an adrenaline-infused transformation. These two masterpieces, representing the epitome of engineering and innovation, are set to captivate riders and enthusiasts alike.

Gracshaw, a brand of motorcycle helmets manufactured in Malaysia and owned by Double Site Marketing Sdn Bhd, has formally introduced its Japan Edition line.

  • The Japan Edition helmet is based on the Gennex G535 helmet range. 
  • A total of six design is up for grab with a recommended selling price of RM420. 

The Japanese-inspired version, which features six distinctive designs (Kurita, Tsuru, Japop, Tengu, Oda, and Karasu), debuted at the most recent Terengganu Bike Week 2023 and was met with a strong welcome from bike aficionados.

The well-known Gracshaw Gennex model’s open-face, double-visor helmets are offered as the Gracshaw Japan Edition. Every helmet comes with an exclusive backpack for protection and portability and has a recommended retail price of RM420.

According to Farizan bin Md Akir, Marketing Division, Double Site Marketing, the Japan Edition was designed in Penang and manufactured in Jitra, Kedah, making it a truly Malaysian product.

“This is the most unique and exciting range yet from Gracshaw and took almost eight months to develop from concept to production. At Gracshaw, we see the importance of always wearing a good and fitting helmet when riding. Although some people may complain that helmets are just a ‘legal requirement,’ we see them as so much more. Our vision is to offer headwear that combines quality, comfort, and style to cater to sophisticated and fashion-conscious riders,” he said.

The Gracshaw Japan Edition Helmet designs are developed in response to the demands of riders that favor expressing their unique traits and riding style. The three main components of the design are extensions of personality, displays of individuality, and style statements.

The final six designs, each featuring exciting Japanese elements, can be categorized into three main themes: intriguing folk tales, exciting pop culture, and historical chronicles.

Intriguing Folk Tales:

The Kurita (クリタ) draws inspiration from a well-known Japanese folktale and features a giant octopus as one of the sea monsters assigned to retrieve the holy object Princess Tamatori, a pearl diver, stole from the Palace of the Dragon King. The katana sword, the pearl, the waves, and the flowers are additional design components.

One of the rarest cranes in the world, the red-crowned crane, is included in the Tsuru 鶴 (つる) design. It is commonly viewed as a sign of fortune, sturdiness, and faithfulness. This crane, known as the tanchzuru in Japan, is supposed to have a lifespan of up to a thousand years. According to the legend of Tsuru no Ongaeshi (the crane returning a favor), cranes are thought to bestow favors in exchange for deeds of sacrifice.

POP Culture:

The anime and manga-inspired Japop (ジャポップ) design will appeal to those who were raised on Japanese popular art. This is sure to spark a conversation because of the creative way traditional components like fish and animals have been combined with dinosaurs and the well-known manga character Astro Boy.

The Tengu 天狗 (てんぐ) design, on the other hand, will appeal to individuals who favor a more enigmatic concept. The Tengu, a cunning supernatural creature with extraordinary wind-controlling abilities from Japanese folklore, is the primary character. The Tengu is not someone to tangle with since he can wreak chaos with his red visage, long nose, robes, and wings.

Historical Chronicles:

Nobunaga Oda, a courageous Japanese warlord from the Sengoku era, is honored with the Oda 織田 (おだ) design. He was the formidable leader of the Oda clan who successfully united Japan in the 1560s by waging war on other feudal lords. The victory of Oda over an army ten times the size of his own at the Battle of Okehazama is recognized as one of the most important turning moments in Japanese history. A katana-wielding Oda with a menacing mask, his figure on a horse against a rising sun, and the spider lily are prominent design motifs.

Last but not least, the Karasu (カラス) design incorporates ninja-related weaponry such as the shuriken, kunai, and kusarigama. Tokugawa Ieyasu, a shogun who later ruled a united Japan, is said to have been saved from death by the legendary ninja Hattori Hanzo, who distinguished himself during his distinguished service to the Tokugawa clan. Hanzo led a group of 200 ninja warriors and was said to possess a number of mystical powers that rendered him invulnerable.

Gracshaw Japanese Edition helmets can be purchased online at, the Gracshaw Official Store on Shopee, and through its Facebook page
