PETALING JAYA, 16 AUGUST 2017, Didi Resources together with Piaggio Asia Pacific officially opens it’s 3S centre with the appointment of Stronghold Cycles and Goh Brothers Motorcycles to operate the showroom and after sales services. Each party has been identified from their strengths to offer the best value thus offering customers an experience unique to the Gasket Alley.
The Moto Guzzi facility seats within a 30,000 sq feet Gasket Alley centre which is operated by Stronghold Cycles and the place offers a lifestyle befitting of a Guzzi owner where they can hang out at the restaurant and bar till late, a custom shop and various shopping hubs that is up the alley.
“We believe the creation of the 3S centre within the Gasket Alley is a great platform that allows our customers to experience something beyond a typical motorcycle showroom and the integration of our corporate identity has been perfectly executed to showcase the garage feel of a Moto Guzzi” as mentioned by Simone Niccolai, Managing Director, Asia Pacific 2 Wheeler, Piaggio Asia Pacific.
Rewi Hamid Bugo, Chairman of Didi Resources, “Great importance has been placed on the post ownership of a Guzzi therefore the appointment of Goh Brothers Motorcycles given their extensive retail experience in the automotive sector for after sales to provide the best standard level of service that is expected from every customers coming through our doors and thus ensuring every Moto Guzzi returns to the road with pride and joy”.
The Moto Guzzi showroom features a garage feel that allows customers to let their creativity run wild on how they would like to make their Guzzi’s special from the array of accessories and merchandise available. For the after sales centre, four dedicated bays have been put in place on top of special tools, computerized diagnostics, parts rooms and trained technicians by Piaggio to handle every customer request. The place would also be able to do body and paint services.
In conjunction with the opening, Didi Resources also took the opportunity to celebrate the fifty year anniversary of the first model by introducing to Malaysia the limited edition of which only 1,000 would be built Worldwide. The third generation of the Moto Guzzi that is known and loved all over the world has been completely revamped: every detail has been fine-tuned to maximize owner satisfaction and riding pleasure, leaving the originality and authenticity typical of this iconic motorcycle unaltered.
V7 is one of the most celebrated and well-known Moto Guzzi models. This world fame is due to its ability to remain faithful to the expectations and reputation of a legendary brand like Moto Guzzi. Since 1967, the year the first units were sold in Italy, the V7 became a pillar of the product range and the representative of the Italian motorcycle par excellence, standing out for its content and design, highly popular with a truly transversal and varied public.
Fifty years later, Moto Guzzi introduces the third act of a first work: V7 III. The challenge of introducing a new version of such a famous motorcycle with such a rich heritage and so much success is one of the most difficult, considering the fact that the V7, the brand’s best-seller since 2009, constitutes the Moto Guzzi entry-level bike, dedicated to both women and men, in addition to young people who want to proudly own one of the most iconic Mandello del Lario production motorcycles.
As was the case with the V7 II compared with the first-born V7, for the V7 III the revamping is profound enough to merit a new progressive number in Roman numerals, that has always distinguished the most popular and long-lasting Moto Guzzi bikes, such as the Le Mans and the California. V7 III is the result of Moto Guzzi’s modern passion and courage, able and skilled in renewing its best-seller, leaving the character and authenticity unaltered, two values that are destined to weather the test of time.
