Malaysian fans of famed Italian brand Aprilia might appreciate this little rumour, in that the new distributor will be picking up the reins as early as this October. Previous industry whispers had the brand going into new premises next year, leaving behind previous distributor Naza Premira.

Naza Premira most recently launched the RSV4 RF and Tuono 1100 in October of 2017. Meanwhile, the Shiver 750, which is still found in the Aprilia Malaysia showroom, has been replaced by the Shiver 900, launched in other markets last year. From what we know, the new Aprilia showroom will be throwing open its doors in the later part of the year, possibly this October with two model ranges initially on display.

These are the RSV4 range of superbikes, which comprises of the RSV4 RF and RSV4 RR, as well as the Tuono V4 1100 Factory and Tuono V4 1100 RR naked sports. While this information is unconfirmed at the moment, we have it on good knowledge that the local motorcycle market scene is undergoing a major shake up.
