NEXT BIKE EXPECTS TO SELL 120 DUCATI BIKES
Next Bike Sdn Bhd, the sole importer and distributor for Ducati motorbikes in Malaysia, expects to sell 120 Ducati bikes this year from 85 units sold last year.
Its group executive chairman and chief executive officer, SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin said the company was confident of achieving the target despite the soft market as “demand was always there for good products and services”.
There are now about 500 Ducati bikes on the road since Naza got its distributorship rights in November 2000.
Speaking to reporters after the launch of the second Ducati showroom and the Naza Autoworld Centre here Monday, SM Faisal said the second Ducati centre was expected to contribute 30 percent to total sales of Ducati bikes.
At the event, Naza also unveiled Ducati Superbikes 1198. The event was officiated by the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail and chief executive officer of Ducati Asia Pacific, Mirko Bordiga.
SM Faisal said Naza aimed to increase its market share in the 250cc and above motorcycle segment to 30 to 40 percent from 24 percent currently.
He said the target will be driven by the introduction of more Ducati motorbikes series.
Meanwhile, when asked on the progress of Naza plan to list its property arm, TTDI Development Sdn Bhd, SM Faisal said the company will keep the option open due to the soft market.
