Ducati fans, and all bike enthusiasts for that matter, do take note! There’s now a one-stop Ducati Centre & Motor Specialist on the island of Penang for you to visit! During the Petron Blaze RON100 Media Ride recently, we dropped by Sheng Fatt Motor Specialist Centre, located at 24, Jalan Dato Keramat,
10150 George Town, Penang, Malaysia.
With ample parking up-front, the ground floor is reserved for a bike showroom housing the latest Ducati motorbikes, but it’s the level above that blew us away.
The entire floor has been renovated to a bike apparel showcase, replete with quality used bikes for sale too; like this Honda Africa Twin and Suzuki GSX-1000 for example…
It’s a very laid-back area with refreshments and even a coffee bar, as well as places to sit and relax, do work, while watching your bikes being worked on in the workshop above, via flat-screen TVs. Yes, unlike other bike shops, this one has its workshop and 6 crew above!
Renovated at a cost of more than RM1 million, it’s owned and operated by Kheoh Hock Seng @ Ah Seng, (above) and his crew of 4 trained mechanics and 2 service-advisors, as well as 3 showroom front-liners.
The new centre has a tonne of riding apparel from helmets to gloves, as well as jackets and boots, from known bike-apparel makers such as Alpinestars, as well as official merchandise from Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Aprilia & Vespa.
Ah Seng’s reasoning behind this extensive renovation to include a huge selection of riding apparel, is because he believes (from being a biker himself) that the importance of safety when it comes to riding gear is still a bit lacking in Penang. Here’s a video of how the shop looks upstairs…
