PENANG BIKE WEEK

AUTOCITY JURU, PENANG

The annual Penang Bike Week was held recently at Autocity, Juru; a mere 30 minutes away from the ever-famous tourist’s destination, Penang Island. KTM Malaysia and Xtreme Performance was in for a good show being in the front row, displaying the various segments of KTM motorcycles. The KTM 1290 Super Adventure S was an eye catcher for many with its unique hornet look-alike head lights, featuring full LED running lights as well as a 3-level lean angle sensitive cornering lights. With many other features, only a test ride will do justice on this 160hp adventurer with endless torque. 

Hundreds of bikes were revving away when they had the convoy flag off; which typically marks the start of the event. Throughout the 3 days event, many other activities and promotions were in-line and one of them was KTM Malaysia’s stunt performance by our in-house rider Amir Yussof, on his modified KTM Duke 250. There was also a special appearances by local celebrity Dato Awie, leading the pack of Sayap-Sayap Wings Group, which consists of about 30 custom motorcycles.

As the sun sets, more and more bikers’ group arrived at the venue to join the evening activities. One of the main evening activity was the gala dinner. While dinner was being served, the guests were entertained by performances from a few local artists. The event ended with a lucky draw of various prizes with the grand prize winner walking away with a brand new motorcycle.
