Kawasaki Agent in Singapore


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, Ive done watever research i can. But i needed more before i make my decision and i appreciate any inputs especially on pple who have first hand experience in this not just kopi talk. Anyway ive heard not so good stories about the agent of kawas here in terms of support comparing to our causeway neighbour. I heard kawa is really supported and big in msia.

 

I plan to get a class 2 kawa but im more afraid of the aftersales support in terms of parts availability etc. Any guys riding the z1000 or versys etc can share info if u ever bought urs from evershine? if the support is nt great then y not save money and buy PI bike instead of buying from agent am i right to say that? where do u guys go for parts? ebay? jb? im more concern of OEM parts in case any **** happens. want to avoid waiting like 3-4 weeks just for parts replacement. im actually really keen on the new z800 which i found already and its hitting our shores in march. there are prob hundreds OTR in malaysia already and i heard the waiting list is long.

 

Thanks! :cheeky:

Now Kawaii bike have the best support in terms of parts. Of course i am not referring to the local agent. You can easily obtain them up north.

 

If u buy PI just have to worry about recall issues. But I am sure the shop will tell you np before u buy ....

so do your research and decide yrself

 

so far only there recall for Concourse, none for Versys or Z1000

anyway, i miss wildcard.

yup! owned a verys before. Basically Kawasaki in Malaysia is very well represented. Most shops get the parts from KL Glenmarie Industrial Park, Shah Alam, they have a big inventory of parts there .

 

Motomatic is a reputable shop there when it comes to servicing kawa bikes. They could be just another authorised distributor.

The main reason why kawasaki bikes are not famous in singapore is because the insurance premiums are sky high. I just did a check with ntuc income and kawasaki is on top of the list.

Are you riding one? You sure it's because of the insurance and not other factors?

To Me....

Is not as though NTUC is the mother of all insurance companies in Singapore lol

 

Yep for jap bikes kawasaki is the highest! Wonder why...

 

My 1L Kawaii bike premuim is almost the same as my non Kawaii Cl2 maxi scooter. From this, it confirmed insurance companies specialise and have preferences for the brand of bikes they would like to cover.

dear fellow kawa owners

 

anyone here ever had their kawa bike on recall? does evershine really mail you the recall letter and follow up on the recall?

 

currently there is a ninja 300 abs recall for two items, the abs unit and ecu, but as of right now it is happening only in USA. whether only USA models are affected or the campaign is only starting in USA, nobody knows. after all, the ABS problem originates from the ABS manufacturer Nissin, which means it should affect all worldwide models. if only ecu then maybe they have USA-specific ecu that is faulty, the rest are ok.

 

there is no 'kawasaki asia' website where i can cross-reference my chassis number to confirm whether affected by recall, and i can only depend on the letter from evershine. of coz i can call and ask but the recall campaign is only just starting and only in USA so i expect evershine themselves would have no news at this point.

 

just wondering if any kawa owners experience recall before share experience.

It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!

so if i wanna get a Z800, where and which agent can i look for? or die die have to import from Malaysia and buy COE, insurance etc in sg?

 

bro.... why "die die must buy from malaysia"?

 

if you dun mind the authorised distributor, just buy from evershine. if for any reason you dont want to deal with evershine, you always have the option of finding parallel importer. i'm quite certain there would be PI for the Z800, just that i dont know at this point. i dun think any bike will end up die-die must import yourself from malaysia.

thanks for the info, at least i know if my bike is affected i will get a recall letter. probably the only advantage from going with authorised dealer. pity the owners who bought from PI which brought over i think from europe.

 

yes i think must keep it there. there will need to inspect watever recall item, replace and record. how long the bike will be there is a question mark, after all its a free service. if they keep it there for a week, who you gonna complain to, and who else is gonna supply the recall item if not them....

but the "evershine", where is it located? consider PI? you gotten from there as well? cause i'm thinking of changing but cant find a distributor etc. so yup, sourcing around. thanks for clarifying my doubt.

but the Malaysia side I heard its the same AD as the one in SG. hence the savings is actually due to conversion rate ?
