Made-in-Malaysia Kawasaki ZX-6R now being exported to China

KUALA LUMPUR: DRB-Hicom Berhad's subsidiary, Modenas (Motosikal dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd), has begun exporting Kawasaki ZX-6R bikes to China. This marks a significant milestone for the local motorcycle industry, as Modenas became Malaysia’s first bike manufacturer to export locally made motorcycles to the Chinese market.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How many countries does Modenas export motorcycles to?

    Modenas has been exporting motorcycles to a total of 10 international markets, including China. 
  • Where are the Kawasaki bikes en route to China assembled?

    The Kawasaki ZX-6R motorcycles en route to China are assembled in Modenas' factory located in Gurun, Kedah, Malaysia.
  • To celebrate this milestone, the company hosted a ceremony at its facility in Gurun, Kedah. It was marked by Roslan Roskan, Chief Executive Officer of Modenas, overseeing the sealing of four containers holding 112 units of the Kawasaki ZX-6R ready to export.

    The ceremony was also graced by the presence of Badrol Ghazali (Head of the Inland Tax Department, Kedah State Royal Malaysian Customs Department) Lee Hock Ben (Head of Facilities and Facilities Control, Kedah State Royal Malaysian Customs Department), and other key members of the customs department and Modenas.

    Roslan expressed, “Today’s milestone not only signifies the strength and depth of our partnership with Kawasaki but also underscores Modenas’s manufacturing prowess, skills, and the dedication of our workforce.”

    “The strategic collaboration between Modenas and Kawasaki has not only broadened our brands’ product offerings but also facilitated technology exchange, strengthened networks, and opened doors to new markets. All of these factors have significantly contributed to our mutual growth and success,” he added.

    Notably, Modenas is one of only two non-Kawasaki companies, which are authorised to manufacture motorcycles under the Kawasaki brand. It has been making Kawasaki bikes for more than 30 years now.

    Back in September, the Modenas factory passed a stringent audit by the China Quality Certification Center (CQC) and obtained certification for exporting bikes to China.
