Made in Malaysia?

Please go to

http://www.kawasaki.co.th/products/product1.html

If u still say Jaguh, think Kawasaki Boss 175 (they even got 2003 model)

If u still say Dinamik, consider Kawasaki Leo Star

Think Kriss, u better think of Kawasaki Kaze 110 ( now got even higher
capacity ma, 125 lor plus straigthen exhaust)

Wannabuy Elit 125, 150, Karisma or Ceria, consider PGO Taiwan (or any
future Modenas scooter model).

Dream of how 150 cc 2 stroke sport bike of Modenas look like?

a) Kawasaki KR150 ZX
b) Kawasaki GTO
c) Kawasaki SSR of Thailand


Conclusion:

Modenas is not a manufacturer, instead they are assemblying copycat model.
Is that so hard for RnD of Modenas to create a simple underbone chasis
and develop a new bike (in case of Protong, Waja la). engine maintain la
Kawasaki pun tak pe coz its reliable.

What have u learned with Kenny Roberts KR3 not long time ago?

That's common la, almost everyone knows that...but there are still some
people out there with very PATRIOTIC mind will argue that "janji kita ada
national car or national bike" as compare to other country. If that's the
case, we even have our own VCD brand too, sold almost worldwide and every
corner of the country. I remember during 2002 Asia Road Racing under GP125
class, Modenas did participate using rebadge Aprilia RS125GP machine(but
it fail to qualify for the race) . Until a jounalist (TV3) ask them "This
is not a Modenas Gp bike right?" and their team spokesman
said "Aaaa...actually we assemble it in Modenas factory". Damn a stupid
answer right? Just say laa...we just 'tampal' the Modenas logo over the
aprilia!

That one is typical "malay" mindset?

I am not a racist person, but what I heard around me even from Malay guys
they also tell me the same thing. What ever products manage mind them
sure got problem.

Modenas for me is good product, I don't mind they rebadge it but with
Kawasaki spirit there... err.. Proton? Hahha... what the Fxxk go to hell-
lah,

All this only good to raise the spirit of kampong folks only la. Proton?
Only bunch of ######s working there la. Every time when I read news papers
or TV news when VIPs hold their hand high showing thumbs up while launching
new model of national bike or car, I always think what izit in the VIP
mind. Whether they seriously feel proud or for the sake of kasi muka sikit.

Agree wit u cupcai. Our culture is more 2wards modifying and duplicating.
Not creating. i also felt like kena tipu when Kriss was launched. Thought
it was originally Malaysian made. Better called Malaysian assembled.

Hope u guys at Modenas could create your own bike design wit own enjin
without any current Kawa's kapcai and easy rider platforms. Do better la n
put ur reserved RM in RnD.

Modenasian should know the true meaning of MODENAS (motosikal & enjin
nasional)--- pls create la and not imitate saje lor.

=========== Kriss? ok la.... .

...i think u should go to modenas gurun and see what is actually happen
la...if you just compare the design....of course looks like kawasaki.. u
should look at their engine la...all the engine parts is actually designed
by their R n D....and manufactured in MALAYSIA...modenas also work closely
with kawasaki thailand before our kriss, jaguh been intoduce here...you
should be proud of our Malaysian product....is there any brand of bike
that comes from thailand?...Kawasaki model is actually...from japan..not
from thailand...only manufactured by Kawasaki Thailand...

Can you arrange a trip to MODENAS for our forum members?
Let's ask them what they intend to say about 100% design by MODENAS.

Can you do it on our behalf?
