  • Suzuki Nex II in Indonesia – from RM3,913 to RM4,109

    Introduced last April in the Indonesia market, pricing for the 2018 Suzuki Nex II has been released. Available in several variants, the Nex II is priced from 13.95 million rupiah (RM3,913) to 14.65 million rupiah (RM4,109).

    The price of the Nex II will seem attractive if converted directly to Malaysian Ringgit because it is designed to be a starter two-wheeler and made easy to own. The first generation Suzuki Nex was launched in Malaysia in 2012 at a price of RM4,218.

    Powered by a single-cylinder SOHC 113 cc power plant, the engine is fed by EFI and power gets to the ground via a CVT transmission. Weighing in at 113 kg, the Nex II uses a single disc brake in front and a drum at the rear, with fuel carried in a 3.6-litre tank.

    The main difference between the Nex II models offered by Suzuki in Indonesia is colour but the higher-end versions come with LED headlight, USB charging port, striped graphics on the body, meter cover and rim stripes.

  • VIDEO: Petronas Sprinta “Experience to Believe” ride

    Here is a video of the Petronas “Experience to Believe” ride to Phuket, Thailand. Held in conjunction with the launch of Petronas Sprinta with Ultraflex motorcycle lubricant, the cross-border ride saw some 35 riders take part, which culminated with the launch event at Patong Beach during Phuket Bike Week.

    The ride was flagged off by Petronas vice president of Downstream Marketing from the Petronas station at Technology Park Malaysia on April 10. The Petronas bikers were led by Mohd Khalid Mohd Latiff, Petronas Lubricants International (PLI) Asia-Pacific regional head.

    Petronas is committed to both the Asia-Pacific and global market as a lubricant supplier and aims to be one of the world’s top five lubricant and mechanical fluids suppliers by 2019. “Regardless of its purpose, extensive usage and exposure to heavy traffic puts a lot of stress on the engine,” said Giuseppe D’Arrigo, group chief executive officer of Petronas Lubricants International.

    Designed to provide reduced engine stress and longer bike life, Petronas Sprinta with Ultraflex was developed in the newly launched Petronas Global Research and Technology Centre in Turin, Italy. Petronas Sprinta comes in several versions – F900, F700, F300 – to suit different performance applications and size of motorcycle engine.
