|The signboard is hidden behind some leaves. LOL|
And the showroom is located in between clusters of factories that were two storeys high. Thankfully, the building is green so it was hard to miss!
|And we're finally here! Phew~!|
I have a friend from my office who owns one of those powerful motorcycles from Kawasaki, yet I never dreamed that I'll get a chance to witness the launching of a new showroom for Kawasaki's bikes, let alone one of it's latest power-bike! But before I proceed with the event, I just want to share Kawasaki's history first. Mind-blowing ~
I read from here that Kawasaki emerged out of the ashes of the second World War to become one of the big players from Japan. Their motorcycles have been in production since 1954 and their first motorcycle engine was designed based on technical know-how garnered from the development and production of aircraft engines. Thus, in the late ’60s and early ’70s, Kawasaki built quite a reputation for being the most powerful engines on two wheels, producing legendary sportbikes like the Ninja series and a line of championship-winning off-road bikes. And wow... that's some history spawning about 60 years!
And now, these motorcycles are sold and serviced by SC Premium Bikes Sdn Bhd right here in Bandar Sunway, Malaysia. SC Premium Bikes is considered as a GENUINE one-stop bike center and also the first Dyno Tuning Centre in Malaysia to be incorporated into their Kawasaki GT World Premium Superbike Showroom and GIVI Center. It also houses a service center behind.
For this event, we had speeches from the lead players in this industry. One was from Mr Chua Chern Kwang as the founder of SC Premium Bikes.

And after the speeches, they officiated the opening of the showroom behind them.

Once officiated, we moved inside for the plaque signing ceremony. Pictured below is a plaque signed by Mr Jeffrey Lim who in return received an appreciation plaque from SC.
|Finally open to public, people!|
|Lucky owner of W800!|
The W800 superbike has a traditional look of olden day superbikes but travels at lightning speed. Boy... I wonder when will I ever get to drive one of those bikes!! *dreams on.
There were ongoing activities after that such as a lucky draw giving away 18 prizes (which I was unfortunate, hehe), a delicious lunch and the selling of a superbike with a great discount from the original price.
|RM32,888!!! Price valid on that day only!|
|Hello darling! Getting stiff there eh? Hehe.|
|It's reasonably priced at RM194.00 a pair. =)|
As the event spiraled to an end, we bloggers took a memorable picture with Mr Jeffrey Lim, the GM of Kawasaki Motors Malaysia.
|Thumbs up to SC Premium Bikes Sdn Bhd! Support them! Support us!|
|I'll forever drool. Not for the girl, but the bike okeh??|
Overall, I'd like to thanks Bro framestone for this opportunity and all the people who made this event successful. Cheers!
