Any form of help in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic is welcomed and the folks from Naza Group knows all too well regarding the current situation facing not just our country but the rest of the world. That’s why they’ve decided to donate RM1.25 million to the Covid-19 fund set up by the Malaysian government in their efforts to fight the pandemic. (more…)

  • Next Bike Sdn Bhd is a subsidiary company of Naza Group and has been distributing Ducati bikes since 2008. 
  • Ducati and Next Bike Sdn Bhd reaffirm their commitment to growing the brand in Malaysia.
  • Next Bike Sdn Bhd will relocate the Ducati Malaysia HQ to a new outlet in Petaling Jaya. 
  • The new outlet will receive a RM3million upgrade and will feature state-of-the-art technology for servicing Ducatis and Scramblers. 

Next Bike Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of one of Malaysia’s largest privately-owned companies, the Naza Group, has been distributing Ducati motorcycles since 2008. Over the years, Next Bike Sdn Bhd has built the Ducati brand to be among the most desired in Malaysia.

The company achieved this by offering a state-of-the-art showroom and service centre, a well-equipped and knowledgeable staff, attractive prices, an engaging online presence, and a superbly active owners club known as the Desmo Owners Club.

With this in place, the Ducati brand has enjoyed unprecedented success under the stewardship of Next Bike Sdn Bhd. Its most popular model has quite surprisingly been the Ducati Multistrada (above), followed by the Monster 821, Panigale V4 and the Hypermotard 939.

“Next Bike Sdn Bhd has always been and will always continue to be dedicated to building the Ducati brand in Malaysia. We want to offer our Ducati owners world-class aftersales service and we are always working on improving the ownership experience of Ducati riders,” said Nazman S.H.C Yusof (top, centre), Head of 2-Wheel Division, Naza Automotive Group.

Nazman has been with the Naza Group since 2012, and has helmed the two-wheel business for the company since 2018 and personally overlooks the progress and development of Ducati bikes in Malaysia.

Commenting on the relationship between Ducati and Next Bike Sdn Bhd, Mr Raffaele Fusilli (top, left), the Global Sales Director for Ducati Motor Holding, said, “The working experience with Naza has been successful for us. Naza is not only passionate for Ducati and the values it represents, but with Naza, Ducati can count on one of the most important business brands in Malaysia. We know we can rely on Naza to build Ducati in Malaysia.”

Mr Raffaele was in Malaysia for a meeting with the top management of Naza and also took some time out to meet select members of the media. He further commented, “Naza is in the right direction, the company is always looking for ways to grow and so is Ducati, so that makes Naza the right partner for us because we have common interests. Naza also focuses on making customers happy first and then only comes sales, which is in line with Ducati’s direction,” he concluded.

During the meeting, Nazman took the opportunity to introduce plans to continue Ducati’s exceptional growth in Malaysia, outlining plans for the first half of the year.

“2019 is going to be a year unlike any other for Ducati Malaysia, we will be introducing nine new models this year, but most importantly we will be moving to a new headquarters that will be purposefully designed to offer the very best of Ducati, its sub-brand Scrambler Ducati, as well as parts, accessories, apparel and riding gear,” said Nazman.

He continued to say, “Next Bike Sdn Bhd has invested RM3 million into the new 3S centre which will be twice as big as the previous one. It will have a beautiful showroom that showcases the beauty of Ducati and Scrambler motorcycles, and most importantly it will focus on after sales. Ducati customers can expect to have their bikes serviced in an advanced workshop with the latest tools and equipment specially designed to service Ducati bikes. We also want to be a pioneer in rider and motorcycle safety, so we hope that this new centre will allow Ducati owners to come together to share ideas on riding and also to have programs that will help improve rider safety”

Nazman further added that there will be a new team set up specifically to build the Scrambler Ducati brand (above) in Malaysia and will operate independently of the Ducati team. This will be done to help grow the Scrambler brand in the country independently from the Ducati brand.

Next Bike Sdn Bhd is also looking to strengthen its position in the southern state of Johor; “We have always been in Johor, but we are looking to create a bigger presence through a new dealer. With Ducati Motor Holding, we are actively interviewing possible dealers and should be able to secure one soon. We already have 3 dealers in central Malaysia and one dealer in Penang, with a new dealer in the south, we are confident that we will reach a wider audience and this will in turn help to spur sales as well as create a positive ownership experience,” commented Nazman.

Ducati Malaysia seems set to enjoy strong results for 2019 with a well thought out plan. With that, it seems like there has never been a better time to own a Ducati. We for one absolutely loved the Scrambler Ducati 1100 Sport, read all about this fantastic machine by clicking here.

GB Workshop which is located at The Gasket Alley has opened its doors to all Aprilia motorcycles. In a Facebook announcement today by the company’s head of aftersales, Idon Pang, GB Workshop has already been and will continue to carry out all maintenance and repair work for any Aprilia motorcycles, old or new.

GB Workshop is owned by Didi Resources Sdn Bhd, which was recently announced as the new importer and distributor of all Aprilia motorcycles in Malaysia (read that announcement here). The company also manages the importation and distribution of Harley-Davidson and Moto Guzzi in Malaysia.

The workshop is equipped with all the latest diagnostic tools such as the all important Piaggio Advanced Diagnostics System which is required to maintain all Aprilia machinery. Not only that, but the team at GB Workshop has also been properly trained and have years of experience working on Aprilia bikes. Idon Pang for one was the former head of aftersales when the brand was still being managed by its previous distributor.

So when it comes to maintaining your Aprilia, trust that there is no other workshop more capable than GB Workshop.

Following the statement released by Naza yesterday confirming that it will cease its Aprilia distributorship in Malaysia (you can read the statement here), the Piaggio Group has today confirmed that it has appointed Didi Resources Sdn Bhd (DRSB) as the new distributor for Aprilia in Malaysia.

The following is the statement released by The Piaggio Group:

Kuala Lumpur, 18 July 2018 – The Piaggio Group officially announces the appointment of Didi Resources Sdn Bhd in Malaysia, as the official distributor of Aprilia, one of the Group’s premium motorcycle brands.

Didi Resources Sdn Bhd will manage Aprilia in substitution of the previous distributor, Naza Premira Sdn Bhd. The Piaggio Group wishes to thank Naza Premira for the continuous effort and support since 2013.

Mr. Gianluca Fiume, Chairman & General Director of Piaggio Vietnam cum Executive Vice President Asia Pacific 2 Wheeler, said, “The appointment of Didi Resources is part of Piaggio’s business strategy to group the motorcycle brands of Aprilia and Moto Guzzi under a single entity to maximize efficiencies across all aspects of the business and reinforce customer commitment in Malaysia. With Aprilia and Moto Guzzi under one roof, we are able to better offer a wider range for potential customers who seek a unique Italian motorcycle experience backed by superior performance and rich heritage of these brands. We look forward to collaborating closely with Didi Resources to propel both Aprilia and Moto Guzzi to greater heights.”

Under the management of Didi Resources, the Gasket Alley at Petaling Jaya will house a dedicated showroom for both Aprilia and Moto Guzzi brands, an aftersales and a service workshop with a new team equipped with specialized technical skills and expertise, fully trained by Aprilia. Customers are assured of a seamless transition in customer care and service support.

According to Mr. Rewi Hamid Bugo, Chairman of Didi Resources Sdn. Bhd, “We are very honoured to be presented with this opportunity to manage Aprilia, a prestigious Piaggio Group brand for the Malaysian market. This complements the Moto Guzzi range which we have established since August 2017 and completes our premium Italian motorcycle product range under Piaggio. Through this acquisition, Didi Resources is firmly committed to building the Aprilia brand through a dedicated aftersales support, strengthening of the Aprilia community and ensuring that engagement with the brand is continuous in the light of a competitive 2-wheel environment in Malaysia.”

The official appointment of Aprilia under Didi Resources will take into effect from 1 August 2018. A series of media and customer engagement activities and service support campaigns for Aprilia are currently in the pipeline to bolster brand building efforts.

DRSB is also the distributor for Harley-Davidson and Moto Guzzi in Malaysia, and has a proven track record of maintaining unique brands. Based at The Gasket Alley in PJ, the team at DRSB have all previously had links to Aprilia in one way or another. So Aprilia owners can rest assured that their machines are in good hands.

  • Naza Premira Sdn Bhd has released an official press statement regarding their distributorship status for Aprilia here in Malaysia.

  • After a mutual decision with Piaggio Group, they’ve decided to cease its operation as the brand’s official distributor starting 31 July 2018.

  • With that being said, Naza Premira Sdn Bhd will continue to represent Piaggio and Vespa brands in Malaysia.

It’s been a while since we last heard anything regarding Aprilia and its presence here in Malaysia. In fact, the last major event organised by them was the official launch of the amazing 2017 Aprilia RSV4 RF and Tuono 1100 V4 held last year in conjunction with the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix (MotoGP). (more…)

Next Bike Sdn Bhd aka Ducati Malaysia is ready to up their game for 2018 by improving their entire structure from products to sales and also after-sales services.

Ducati Malaysia will also continue to improve their brand’s presence by expanding their dealer networks across the country.

The 2018 Ducati World Premiere will happen on 5 November 2017 (Sunday) where the world will witness no less than five new Ducati models to be unveiled.

Next Bike Sdn Bhd (Ducati Malaysia), the official distributor of Ducati bikes here in Malaysia, has announced that they will continue to bring and improve the brand’s legendary status here in the local market by renewing their partnership with Ducati. They have been doing so for almost two decades now by positioning themselves as more than just a motorcycle company but more of a lifestyle related to anything and everything Ducati. (more…)

Naza Premira Sdn Bhd has just launched the latest 2017 Aprilia RSV4 RF and Aprilia Tuono 1100 V4 Factory yesterday.

The launch was held at the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini meet and greet session with their MotoGP rider, Sam Lowes.

The 2017 RSV4 RF is priced at RM127,571 while the 2017 Tuono 1100 V4 Factory is at RM104,251 (basic prices with GST).

In conjunction with the upcoming Shell Malaysia MotoGP round which is happening this very weekend, Naza Premira Sdn Bhd, the sole distributor of Aprilia motorcycles here in Malaysia took the opportunity to launch two of their latest motorcycles in their current line-up. These bikes are none other than the 2017 Aprilia RSV4 RF and Aprilia Tuono 1100 V4 Factory. (more…)

So it is officially official then, Naza has lost the Harley-Davidson dealership for the Malaysian market. Naza, under its sister company Naza Prestige Bikes Sdn Bhd, has been the exclusive dealers of the HD motorcycles in Malaysia for over a decade now, but the news does not come as a surprise for many industry insiders.

I personally heard of the news over two months ago, but was urged to keep mum about it, pending an official statement. Though that humble request went against every journalistic instinct in me looking for an “exclusive story”, friendship meant more to me than the story, so I toed the line.

It is not surprising that Naza lost the deal, the fact that the company used to sell grey import HD’s side by side to brand new HD motorcycles never really made sense for many. Why would you spend over RM100,000 for a brand new HD, when you could spend about RM60,000 for a slightly used, almost new, imported bike. And Naza even had the technical expertise and aftersales know-how to back you up after you buy the bike.

It made perfect business sense for Naza, but not for HD.

The big question on everybody’s lips right now is – what’s next for the HD brand in Malaysia? Who will take up the gargantuan task of managing such a elite brand in Malaysia. The only company that would step up to the challenge is a company that has huge experience in selling and maintaining mass market brands, and one that understands aftersales and has the capacity to do so.

There is a clear answer to that, and one that our friends at have already hinted at (you can read their report here), is the big boys at The Gasket Alley. 

The Gasket Alley is a new showroom in Petaling Jaya located by Jaya 33 that serves as the headquarters for some unique brands like Moto Guzzi and the Japanese custom bike builder, Zero Engineering. They have the perfect location to house HD, and the people behind it are brighter than daylight when it comes to managing big brands like HD.

The Gasket Alley was founded by a few businessmen with some really deep pockets. I will not go into details but one of them is from a famed Malaysian automotive group with vast experience in managing automotive brands, including mass market brands, and a luxury brand. And the other is a successful bumiputra entrepreneur with interests in property development in Malaysia and abroad.

The collective experience of the company is perfect for a brand like Harley-Davidson because it already has vast experience in managing unique and luxurious brands, and has the capacity to facilitate aftersales service. In fact, the company is known for great aftersales service, and if they can manage a luxury brand which demands perfect aftersales service of all their dealers, then they can definitely do a good job at managing a brand like HD.

Other than that, The Gasket Alley also has a few key people who previously served at Naza and know a thing or two about managing a brand like Harley-Davidson. These people were key to the success of brands under Naza like HD and even Ducati, but were either let go for reasons unknown, or simply quit and moved on.

There is no official statement confirming whether or not The Gasket Alley will serve as one of the new importer and distributor of the Harley-Davidson brand in Malaysia, but you can consider it a done deal. Especially since the key person in charge of aftersales was recently spotted attending the prestigious Harley-Davidson University in Bangkok. So, it is safe to then assume that the new dealers for the HD brand in Malaysia would be – The Gasket Alley!

So Harley owners in Malaysia, worry not, you’re in good hands.
