The Malaysian MotoGP theft case is now solved.

The Royal Malaysian Police arrested a number of individuals in raids in the vicinity of Sepang and Bangi. All six individuals are Malaysians, aged around 23 years old.

Chief of Police for the Kuala Lumpur International Airport District, Assistant Commissioner Zulkifli Adamsah told the press, “We made a series of arrests and raids between 3rd November to 12th December. Among the items recovered were four bags of different brands, 26 brake units, seven spanners, three dampers, two handle grips, two tyre warmers, two team black jackets, fourteen screws, six bottles of brake fluid, in addition to other items.”

“Initial investigations showed that one of the suspects owns a motorcycle workshop. He sells the stolen parts to motorcycle owners who want to modify their bikes.” The items were sold below market price. “For example, a brake caliper was sold for RM 600 when its real price could cost up to RM 1,000. Some of the loot were already installed on the suspect’s bike.” (We don’t know if it’s a typo in the press report or the police were misinformed: If a Brembo caliper for stock bike costs RM 3,000 to RM 4,000, it’s substantially more for a racing item. – Editor)

Two of the suspects has records for motorcycle theft and tested positive for methamphetamines. “Among the suspects were part-time workers who had access passes to the SIC area.

The theft occurred on 1st November 2019, involving five to six Moto2 and Moto3 teams, but it was the Angel Nieto team which suffered the most losses.

27th October 2017, Sepang Circuit – As promised, KTM Malaysia rocked the show at the 2017 Malaysian MotoGP.

Although Day One (Friday) got off to a slower start due to incessant rain throughout most parts of the day, KTM’s pavilion was packed with racing fans who had queued patiently to meet Moto2 riders Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder, and Moto3 riders Bo Bendsneyder and Niccolo Antonelli.

Their patience was rewarded by first KTM Malaysia who carried out fun quiz sessions throughout the day. Participants walked away with some great KTM memorabilia.

Visitor also had the opportunity to view, touch and even smell the latest KTM motorcycles, including the GP16 MotoGP racebike replica, RC Cup racer, the just-launched 250 Duke and 390 Duke, 1290 Super Duke R, 1290 Super Adventure S, the still-rare and new 1290 Super Adventure R; and of course, off-road bikes for which KTM are synonymous with such as the new ISDE Six Day Enduro models, SX-F motocross models, EX/C-F four-stroke enduro models and more.

The new ISDE Six Day models are noteworthy as the bikes have different graphics now, as the International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) event has moved to France. These bikes are collector’s items.

Another motorcycle to look out for is the 1050 Adventure Travel Pack. The 1050 Adventure has always been a fun, comfortable and reliable bike for adventure- and sport-touring, but it’s now even better with the Travel Pack.

For a limited time only, customers who opt for the Travel Pack together with the purchase of a new 1050 Adventure will receive ten (yes, 10!) PowerPart accessories such as semi-floating panniers, crash-protection bars for the engine, and others for just an extra RM 3,000. Be sure to check back in with us for the updates soon.

Day Two of the 2017 Malaysian MotoGP (Saturday, 28th October) will see MotoGP riders, Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith visiting the KTM pavilion for another meet-and-greet plus autograph session. So remember to bring your KTM gear and be there by 5pm.


1. Visit the Shell Advance Ride Thru Service booth

Are you riding to Sepang to watch the race? Then be sure to visit the Shell Advance booth at the PA1 parking lot ride opposite the main entrance (Welcome Centre). Buy any Shell Advance motorcycle lubricant and you will get a free engine service, free engine filter, free food and drinks, and you stand a chance to win other great goodies. Check out the video we created at last year’s Shell Ride Thru Service so you know what to expect!

2. Don’t have a ticket to watch the race? Then visit the Shell Advance Ride Thru booth – again!

Yes that’s right. Shell Advance Malaysia wants to give you free tickets to the Shell Hillstand to watch the race. All you have to do is buy a Shell Advance AX7 or Ultra and service your bike at the Ride Through Service! So if you do not have tickets, this is your chance.

3. Get ready to shop!

The Malaysian MotoGP is the best time to buy merchandise of your favourite team or racer. There will be plenty of Valentino Rossi merchandise on sale, and at great prices too. So bring your wallet, and make sure there is a load of cash in it.

4. Visit the HJC booth to check out a special helmet

Of course there are going to be other helmet brands there too, and you should visit them too, but HJC Helmets is known to make some amazing helmets and are among the most affordable in the market right now. The latest helmet models are a unique line that include a few Marvel superheroes. But the latest design is one that will grab the attention of cartoon lovers with a design from the Cars 3 cartoon series. Don’t miss out the intricate details of the new HJC helmet.

5. Get up close and personal with the amazing Kawasaki H2R

The Kawasaki H2R needs no introduction, it is alien in comparison to regular bikes. Made of carbon fibre, the supercharged motorcycle is capable of hitting 400km/h. But it looks like it going really fast even while standing still. Marvel at this engineering masterpiece at the Kawasaki booth. Read more about this amazing machine here!

6. Check out the vast array of KTM bikes

Don’t let this team photo fool you, KTM makes motorcycles for track riders, adventurers and daily commuters.

KTM Motorcycles are becoming more and more popular now, and they are among a few manufacturers that have a complete range of motorcycles from dirt bikes to everyday commuters. There is a KTM motorcycle for everybody. And if you are a fan of the marque, there is also plenty of official merchandise to buy.

7. Stay hydrated with Red Bull

Over the years, the Red Bull marquee has built a reputation as the most happening booth during MotoGP thanks to its party like atmosphere. It is also the only booth during MotoGP that allows alcohol. So visit the Red Bull marquee, watch the race live, cool down with the air-conditioned tent. And if alcohol is not your thing, then simply load up on the Red Bull energy drink.

8. Take lots of selfies with the models

Where ever there are fast bikes there are bound to be plenty of beautiful women, and that is the case during MotoGP as well. There will be a long line of guys waiting to get a selfie with the gorgeous models, and they oblige with a smile. Just make sure your wife or girlfriend is not with you though.

9. Check out the new BMW bikes

BMW Motorrad Malaysia has a prominent booth just at the entrance to the grand stand area. And just like KTM, they have a complete range of motorcycles the fits almost all budgets. From the extremely loveable G310R, to the outrageous BMW HP4 Race that costs an astonishing RM520,900. Read about both the bikes here!

10. Win various goodies

A number of booths will be giving away free merchandise in return for something. Givi for example was giving away a very cool coin box after you like their Facebook page. We also know other stands are also doing the same, so keep a look out for all the free stuff on offer.

11. Watch the race!

This is a no-brainer. We are at the second last race of the season, and Spaniard Marc Marquez is leading the championship again. In second place is Andrea Dovizioso who still has a good chance of winning the championship provided something happens to Marquez, which is unlikely. There is definitely going to be good action to watch at the race. Also, our local boys Adam Norrodin, Hafizh Syahrin, Khairul Idham Pawi as well as wildcard rider Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin will all have plenty to prove at their home race. So whatever you do, no matter how many hot models there are to take photos with, or how many free goodies there are – do not miss the race!

See you there!
