In the 21st century, the worldwide trends of
globalization and liberalization have greatly changed the landscape of
world economy and manufacturing industry, including the motorcycle
bunnies in Asia. The industry has enjoyed remarkable growth in the
last few decades. Asia itself accounted for 87 percent of total world
production of motorcycles, and 86 percent of global sales. This is
partly due to the rapid growth in China, India and ASEAN countries
such as Indonesia and Thailand.
With the impending implementation of AFTA under WTO,
the motorcycle industry in Malaysia-one of the most regulated and
protected sectors in Asia-will have to undergo considerable
restructuring and transformation. The local industry will have to
equip itself to capitalize on the opportunities, as well as face the
changers and challengers in a liberalized and open market environment.
Motosikal dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd-MODENAS was
established to spearhead the development of the local motorcycle
manufacturing industry. Together with Kawasaki Heavy Industry (KHE) as
the technology partner, they successfully launched the first MODENAS
motorcycle, the 110cc Kris, in 1997.
MODENAS has also managed to break into the
international market with its products, and continued with the
introduction of subsequent models into the market. With strong
production and distribution effort, MODENAS is poised to become a
world-class motorcycle and engine manufacturer in the ASEAN region.
