Therefore, be sure to stay tune to our youtube channel whether you are watching from mobile, computers or maybe even your 42-inch television. We are excited to share with every single one of you viewers that we will be reducing our production of films starting this year to ensure better preparation and quality to the films we are making. It will be a little bit similar to the approach of our beloved inspiration “BBC Top Gear”. Or at least, that’s what we think.

Below are the scheduled films to be released by episode from our Malaysian Riders production team:

  1. BMW HP4: A Retold Story
  2. Ducati Hypermotard: TBC Title
  3. Kayo MiniGP: Budget Racer For All
  4. Kawasaki Z1000: The Z Series 
  5. Aprilia Capanord: Journey to the Sea of Red
  6. Honda 500 Series: TBC Title

Those are currently the films that will be made by our production team and we shall ensure all of it be made into this year’s 2014 show. Some of you might be thinking. why there are so little films to be released. Not to be worried, these are just the main films that we call as our “premium effort”. There are surely more than 20 films to be made this year ranging from all kind of bikes, regardless of their capacity.

Following from our collaboration with Motomalaya.Net we will be releasing lots and lots of films on the smaller bikes to cater our local viewers and yes, it will be done in Malay language with subtitles to accompany it; just in case.

2013 BMW HP4 Tested

DSC_0016

The path for us to get the chance on this bike was really something that we have to be grateful about. Before we proceed, let’s introduce the main focus of our write up this time around. The 2013 BMW HP4, probably one of the most advance bike for the year 2013 and it has got to be as one of the most anticipated bike by the motor heads out there too. The team behind Malaysian Riders missed out the chance to get it tested at the track during it’s introduction here in Malaysia.

The connection between us and BMW Malaysia was not established during our days before the chance came along for us to test the BMW HP4. But with our strong support from our friends and networks, somehow we managed to get the last available chance to get the BMW HP4 to our test rider and that chance led us to film it in just 5 hours of day time. The team behind the filming was forced to run the production during the hot day of Ramadan and it is unbelievable how all of managed to complete it.

We keep on reminding our test rider to be extra careful with the bike and we have to say, Rashidi really was challenged by many factors to really keep his performance and mind at an optimum level during the test.

Malaysian Riders and 2013

2013

The year of 2012 is coming to an end and a whole new chapter for us in Malaysian Riders is about to come. 2013 will be the year where we will be pushing our organization into a new era of online media presentation towards our audience. But instead of staying behind the scene almost everyday, we would like to have some user engagement with all of our audience. This is one of the target for 2013 which is to join as much events as possible that we can further interact with our audiences.

Apart from that, we will be introducing a whole new segment under the brand of Malaysian Riders. The new segment will be starting point for us to cater all motor heads in Malaysia and hopefully in South East Asia. Why are we targeting these markets are simple, because we know that our markets are somewhat similar and much more relevant to be discussed about rather than our counterparts in Europe, Japan and America. Therefore, we are looking forward to further promote ourselves as an online show that can be informational and entertaining all at the same time.

Two new contents are currently in pre-production and these two are just something that even our production crew are very excited at. For that, please stay tune with us in Malaysian Riders and LIKE our FACEBOOK PAGE and SUBSCRIBE our YOUTUBE CHANNEL to get all the latest updates.

BMW HP4 Pricing

The all new big boys toy from the German automaker BMW has been officially revealed previously and some of our lucky International media has been invited to test out the bike around the revealing occasion circuit. But the price was still in a secret at the time, although people has been predicting about the price for the bike there has been no official statement from BMW regarding this matter.

Not until recently, BMW had announced their latest technological motoring product which namely the BMW HP4 will be given the price tag of £16,700 OTR for the standard version which if translated into Malaysian Ringgit; it’ll be about RM82,000 not really an expensive price tag isn’t it? Not so fast, do not forget ever about the Malaysian comical tax and stuff which can easily double the price to RM160,000 for the most basic package.

The story on the latest of Bimmers two wheels development is always great to follow. The newly launched BMW is said to be having a lot of improvements on its part and it will be significantly great motorbike to be ridden in an extreme condition (Track and Canyon/Moutain riding). This led to the curiosity of our European counterparts about the price tag of the bike itself after those significant improvements.

But this however, was not really the main agenda of the launch from BMW on this bike. They have yet to announce the exact number of the HP4 but revealed the price will be around those of £16,000 (MYR 79,313 w/o tax) and £19,000(MYR 94,185 w/o tax) for the competition package.If this is true, the possibility of the bike at its highest spec reaching the RM200,000 range is possible due to our wonderful taxes.

But for now, the confirmed information is that it will be available at least for the European market starting this December and the price will be revealed in early October. Regardless of the updates, when this great bike will be coming into our shore is still a mystery to us Malaysian as always.

Hold your thoughts people, the title may sounds too good to be true but it is not impossible at all. Although rumors will always be rumors and people will keep on speculating and that includes us too. But this time around, the rumor seems to be getting real and it might be just around the corner for all Bimmers enthusiast out there. We’re speaking of the new BMW HP4 which is the higher-spec of the already hyper bike S1000RR. So what is new with the bike that it deserves our attention?

The rumored HP4 is all about specification. Electronic suspension, launch control, titanium akrapovic, new brakes, etc etc. Well let’s just say it will come with all kind of performance upgrades from the standard S1000RR. But from the news we heard, the horsepower is left unchanged with 193hp which is not really a problem since there will be a significant weight reduce to the bike. All this information was thought to be genuine as the photos and information comes from a potential slide show straight from the BMW dealers meet up recently.

Whatever it is, we can’t confirm anything yet as there are no official statement from BMW reps regarding the HP4.
