Rg ....thanks lot and appreciate the effort.:thumb:

 

 

http://www.ktmb.com.my still searhing their webby

Maybe I kok eye ...still no info.

That website doesn't show the rates(or maybe I cannot find also).

 

Gimmi some time to dig out my info.

 

All I can remember is at least 2 days, n they charge by CC of the bike.

Meaning bigger CC bike = more expensive than smaller CC bike.

I think u go n ask the train station faster than I dig out my info. :D

Info only available from the postal office, if u dunno where, ask the ticketing counter, they'll tell u where is the postal office.

If I can remember, they close at 3:30pm.

 

Do bring along a pen n paper, no brochure, they read it off a chart.

 

There are a few major destinations, like KL n butterworth.

Ask for all prices for all CC of bikes.

eg: how much for

1) 400CC bike to KL / Butterworth

2) 750CC bike to KL / Butterworth

3) 1000CC bike to KL / Butterworth

4) 1300CC bike to KL / Butterworth

 

n stuffs like tat...u know...

The last time i heard from a friend is that from Butterworth to JB cost RM150. Tats a year ago. his is a malaysian bike. They will load your bike together with all the barang barang into the cargo compartment. But been adviced not to do so as the train movement will cause damage and scartches to your bike, or parts missing, as they are not responsible for all these.

If you have noticed this notice you will have noticed that this notice is not worth noticing

Hi Guys, I am looking for a way to ship my bike from Singapore up to Penang so I can have a leisurely ride back down to Singapore.

 

Basically I have a one way air ticket Singapore to Penang I want to use up, so thought if I shipped th bike up to Penang the rest of my vacation trip would be the ride back down.

 

Does anyone have a contact for a good transport/man and a van company who will do this? Please PM or SMS me at 92367896

I think somemore sent his nighthawk 250 back to SG from Penang by train. You can try calling the train station to inquire. He mentioned $75 for a 250cc bike.

Did u call my lim? :angel:

 

Now they ish charge $90+- liao from penang.

 

Anyway Mr mcfc...

 

U can call KTM singapore for a qoute. Ask for the customs number

and tell them ur bike CC over phone, they onspot tell u price.

 

Fyi, My 250 cc send from spore to penang was $180+-

...so u can see the price difference.

 

Most save money method is ride to JB ktm and send.

But go there can kannar poked ...kidding

Honda ..................and nothing else
