The Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) has announced a first of its kind initiative to promote motorcycle tourism.
This ride, curated under the Big Biking Commune (one of the largest aggregator platforms for the motorcycle community in India), will see five Indian bikers traveling to Malaysia for an 18-day tour under the WOW Rides (World on Wheels) banner.
During the journey, the bikers will explore the routes of Malaysia and engage with the local motorcycling community across cities sharing their learnings, experiences and riding tips while soaking in local culture.
Razaidi, Director, MTPB said “ While we have a lot of inflow from India, especially Tamil Nadu, this is a fresh initiative to explore and encourage motorcycle tourism as a new way of seeing our country. We want to encourage travelers to try riding and exploring our country”.
Arun Kumar, convenor of the Big Biking Commune, says, “While bikers have been riding across the borders, this initiative will help engage with bikers and understand the bike tour dynamics and nurture and grow the motorcycle tourism category”.
The rides will be flagged off from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya on February 3 and will continue to places like Sepang International Circuit, Port Dickson, Malacca, Johor Baru, Cameron Highlands, Kuantan, Genting Highlands, Penang, Langkawi and back to Kuala Lumpur spread over 18 days covering 3,000km on motorcycles.
