After the recent switch of Harley-Davidson distributors from Naza to Didi Resources, it appears that another brand in the Naza stable might be shifting house in the near future. This is the other Italian sports bike name lodged under the Naza group of companies, Aprilia, which was marketed under Naza Premira, the first being Ducati.

It has been noted the Aprilia brand name has been languishing in the Malaysian market over the past two years, with no new model introductions. This is despite Aprilia launching the successor to the locally-assembled Shiver 750, the Shiver 900, last year.

Additionally, both the RSV4 and Tuono V4 have received extensive updates for the 2018 model year but Naza Premira was unable to confirm if any new models would be shipped in. As to who might be making moves to take over the Aprilia franchise for Malaysia, your guess is as good as ours, but we have a feeling it might be someone whose name is quite well known in the market.
