After taking over the distributorship of Harley-Davidson (H-D) motorcycles for Malaysia, Didi Resources officially opened Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya, the first of a refreshed independent dealer network. Located at The Gasket Alley, Petaling Jaya, the showroom is operated under Goh Brothers Motorcycles.

The opening was officiated by Johan Kleinstruber, H-D Emerging Markets managing director, Rewi Hamid Bugo, chairman of Didi Resources and Goh Kian Sin, chairman of Goh Brothers Motorcycles. Covering some 1,858 square meters, the H-D of PJ showroom offers the entire range of H-D motorcycles, including the 115th Anniversary Edition Street Glide, the Road Glide Special and the entire 2018 model year Softtail line.

Also on-site is a service centre with six fully-equipped service bays, as well as a body and paint centre, manned by technicians trained at H-D University. “Together with our new authorised sole distributor-partner, Didi Resources, we are happy to refresh our trusted network of independently owned dealerships in Malaysia, a country Harley-Davidson has been committed to since 2008,” said Kleinstruber.

Some RM3 million was invested in the setting up of H-D of PJ, and there are plans to open two more H-D centres in the latter half of 2018, located in Penang and Malacca. “We are honoured that Harley-Davidson has given us the trust to carry the brand by becoming the first Harley-Davidson dealership in Malaysia under the refreshed dealer network,” said Goh.

In conjunction with the opening of H-D PJ, a new Harley Owners Group (HOG) Petaling Jaya Chapter Malaysia has been established. Each H-D Malaysia dealership will manage a chapter, providing personalised service to Harley riders.

Meanwhile, existing H-D owners with bikes purchased before 2018 can have the two-year manufacturer warranty on their bikes honoured at the H-D PJ service centre. There will be no activation or registration fee charged.
