Take note, Indonesian bike enthusiasts as Italian motorcycle manufacturers have set sights on igniting the passion of Indonesian bikers with their new and updated models.

Moto Guzzi unveiled its new adventure bike V85 TT, while Vespa introduced updates to its GTS and Primavera ranges alongside launching its new electric scooter, the Elettrica.
“We are ready to bring the new Ducati motorcycles to Indonesia, including the three new ones,” said Faby Tsui, marketing director of Garansindo Euro Sports, the sole authorized distributor of Ducati in Indonesia.
“We are looking at opening another shop in Jakarta, one in Surabaya and one in Bali,” Faby noted that the firm are interested in adding three new stores.
Italjet Moto has just revived its iconic Dragster scooter with a new sporty design.
“We would like to enter the Indonesian market. It’s an exciting market, which I believe has many scooter enthusiasts. Indonesia will be the first country outside Europe for us to market the Dragster,” saiad Italjet Moto managing director Massimo Tartarini.
“We will start production in April or May next year. For the first year, we want to produce it in Italy. For the second year, we want to start manufacturing it in Indonesia for the Asia-Pacific market,” Tartarini added.
