Madass 125 Sachs Coming to Indonesia…!
Hey, what do you think about the motorcycle shown in pic above? Cool juga yah. The design is really unique. It’s kinda BMX bicycle with a machine I just found out that this bike has actually entered Indonesian market a couple weeks ago during my vacation.
This motorbike, namely Madass 125 (means Pantat Gila in Indonesian hehe), is manufactured by German company called Sachs. It means we will have a European motorbike running around across the street here in Indonesia. It gives full competition to other motorbike manufactured by mostly Japan company.
Madass 125 comes with a surprise. The price stated for this bike is only Rp 14 millions (840 pounds). It gives direct rival to Suzuki Thunder 125 with relatively the same price. In Europe they sell this motorbike at the rate of 1600 pounds. The extreme low price is the effect of the joint manufacturing and co-branding between Sachs Germany with PT Minerva Indonesia who will manufacture this motorbike in Indonesia.
Generally, Indonesian market is really Japan minded when it comes to automotive product especially motorbike. It’s clear that Sachs Germany have to use low price strategy to attrack the new market for European motorbike. Making Indonesia as one of their factory base in Asia could give them opportunity to compete head-to-head with all Japan motorbike brands existed here.
Madass 125 use 4 gear transmission machine with manual clutch so it’s not automatic or semi-automatic motorbike. Besides its unique and futuristic look, it has very strange but compact fuel tank design because it’s in the body frame of the bike. I’m not sure how to open it when you need to refill in a gas station though
