Shouldn't Malaysia consider introducing a "Easy Rider" motorcyle.
We in Malaya, have a big problem with "MAT REMPIT", this are young hooligans who have "low cost" recreation with acrobatic stunts, and night races on the MOPETs.|
This could be a big problem, as it's a nuisance in certain city areas.
Not only that there is a lot of problems associated with the Mopets, including high level of accidents and fatalities (80% of the 6,000 road fatalities is supposed to come from motorcylist, and i wonder how many injured in the 50,000 or so accidents recorded annually in Malaysia.)
The Malayan government, Mr. Huang262, Mr. CaringHK should pay attention, we should BAN the Mopet, and introduce a 4 stroke engine "Easy Rider" motorcycles, 250cc to 500cc. With a market of 500,000 annually, such an action would create a huge boom in scooters, and large bike manufacturing industry, especially the HONG LEONG, BOON SIEW, DRB-HICOM and MODENAS engine making plant in Penang!
That industry has been SCLEROTIC and STATIC for so many years.
A ban, with GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY to help in giving value to MOPET trade in could do wonders to the SAFETY, Easy rider bikes, like Scooter limits many stunts, and have more protective features. Large scale manufacturing of the big bikes could bring down cost of the bigger bikes like what i saw with HYOSUNG (Korean Made) that cost less than Rmn30,000 each! (and that's imported)
