Ducati cruising to 1,000-unit mark
KUALA LUMPUR: Next Bike (Ducati Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is on track to hit sales of 1,000 units by year-end, partly helped by introduction of new completely knocked down (CKD) motorcycles.
The company sold 250 units last year. In the first six months, sales exceeded 450 units or 40 per cent more than the entire 2011.
"Our dealers have started taking orders, and so far, the response has been very encouraging. With all the activities lined up this year, we are looking at achieving 1,000 units of sales this year," said Datuk SM Zulkifli SM Amin, chief operating officer of Naza Group.
He was speaking to the media after the launch of the CKD version of the Ducati Diavel here yesterday.
The Diavel, assembled in Thailand, is expected to register sales of 200 units for the remaining of this year.
It was first introduced to the public in 2010 and since then, it has become one of Ducati's top selling models.
The Diavel comes in two variants - the standard Diavel (priced at RM109,888) and the Diavel Carbon (RM126,888).
"With these new pricing, more Ducati lovers will now able to join the world of Ducati and enjoy this magnificent cruiser," Datuk Wira SM Faisal SM Nasimuddin said.
