BeAT the system with Boon Siew Honda’s New Active Lifestyle Device

Kuala Lumpur, 23 November 2016– Scooter enthusiasts will no longer have to choose between comfort, style or safety with the launch of the all new Honda BeAT.

Malaysia’s leading bike manufacturer, Boon Siew Honda is catering to the active lifestyle of youths with its latest scooters range.

According to Boon Siew Honda’s Managing Director, Mr. Nobuhide Nagata, “In June, we have mentioned to bring in breakthrough products to our Malaysian customers. After the launch of RS150R, it is a pleasure for us to now introduce a model appeals to the youth’s lifestyle, the Honda BeAT.”

Positioned as an Active Lifestyle Device, Honda BeAT is designed to support and uplift the fast paced life of youths.

One of the prominent features of BeAT, which is also unique to Boon Siew Honda’s motorcycle, is the Combi Brake System or CBS. This system allows shorter breaking distance, translating into more control by riders over their vehicles, placing safety as first priority, on the road.

The all new Honda BeAT also has a Smart Lock System, which keep brakes locked for safe starting or parking, avoiding accidental acceleration in traffic. There is also a Side Stand Switch, automatically stopping the engine once engaged for safety.

Nagata commented on adhering to the EEV standards, “Boon Siew Honda is the first two wheeler manufacturer in the country to receive the status. It is our way of making sure that development goes hand-in-hand with efforts to preserve the environment. It is important for us that carbon footprints are minimized, in line with the National Automotive Policy (NAP) 2014 by the Malaysian government. We are fully in support of the government’s target for Malaysia to become the regional hub for EEV through adaptation of high technology.”

Boon Siew Honda is optimistic of the market’s reception for Honda BeAT as the motoring company is expecting 12,500 of units sold per annum.
