Kuala Lumpur, 23 November 2016 – Scooter enthusiasts will no longer have to choose between comfort, style or safety with the launch of the all new Honda BeAT. Malaysia’s leading bike manufacturer, Boon Siew Honda is catering to the active lifestyle of youths with its latest scooters range. According to Boon Siew Honda’s Managing Director, Mr. Nobuhide Nagata, “In June, we have mentioned to bring in breakthrough products to our Malaysian customers. After the launch of RS150R, it is a pleasure for us to now introduce a model appeals to the youth’s lifestyle, the Honda BeAT.”
Positioned as an Active Lifestyle Device, Honda BeAT is designed to support and uplift the fast paced life of youths.

It is our way of making sure that development goes hand-in-hand with efforts to preserve the environment.

We are fully in support of the government’s target for Malaysia to become the regional hub for EEV through adaptation of high technology.” Boon Siew Honda is optimistic of the market’s reception for Honda BeAT as the motoring company is expecting 12,500 of units sold per annum.
