Varese, 30th July, 2010 - Mofaz Motosikal Sdn Bhd (Momos), a subsidiary of Mofaz group and exclusive importer of MV Agusta and Cagiva products in Malaysia, has opened a new flagship store in Kuala Lumpur.
The showroom, which is exclusively dedicated to these brands from Varese, is situated in the prestigious area of Taman Tun Dr Ismail. This project is based on the application of innovative minimalism, which underlines the original and distinctive elegance of the motorcycles, the clothing and the special parts created by the Italian manufacturer.
During the opening ceremony, of which more than 250 people took part, the Director of Momos, DatÚ Nik Izani has stated with pleasure that the Malaysian company has already exceeded their target of 40 retailed units in the first months of 2010. Their next objective is to exceed the quantity of 70 units delivered by the end of the year.
MV Agusta Sales Director, Umberto Uccelli, took part to the ceremony. Uccelli stated that "After the opening ceremony of the prestigious flagship store in Seoul, Kuala Lumpur is the second step of the MV Agusta strategic plan of expansion in Asia. Our care for the Far East markets has been repayed by the ever increasing demand for our products and by the enthusiasm of our Malaysian partners. These results have persuaded us to increase our commitment in the development of the Asian market by planning new openings in the coming months".
Anyway, sorry for the thread jack.
To be honest, if they really are selling that many MV's in Malaysia, it must be to their neighbors down in Sing-town... for the only MV's I have ever seen in KL are Brute's.
What I will say and this is to clarify... the Flagship dealer is the very same one that has been selling MV's for some years now and as well, the same location. I think they only got tagged as a flagship because of volume. I will be there again in Oct and will share what's up for if they have gear, i.e., T's, Polo's, key Fob's, etc., I am down for getting some. Might even post something here for all of you to let you know what they do have and if there is interest, willing to pick-up some stuff for fellow MVers and then sell/ship in Nov.
IMO they need to get the brand working well here in Oz and then build a flagship store. Having a big store doesn't make up for poor support and poor parts availability.
I like to ride a lot and if the bike was off the road i would be majorly pissed. Nothing is more frustrating than a broken car/bike.
