Flash Flood Yesterday at Ducati PJ, Damage Being Assessed
Yesterday’s sudden an intense afternoon thunderstorm resulted in a flash flood in Petaling Jaya. Amongst the affected areas was the Ducati Malaysia PJ Headquarters. Photographs began to surface on social media platforms of red Ducati bikes submerged under floodwater, leading to speculation that these were customer bikes.
The management team of Next Bike Sdn Bhd, who are the official Ducati distributors in Malaysia, have since issued a press statement regarding the situation. They said that no injuries were reported and that they had things under control.
The team is currently assessing the extent of the damage and have already reached out to customers who had bikes in their custody. It was implied that customer bikes were okay, but we await their final report after the assessment has been done.
This will probably take some time as it may be difficult to mobilise certain staff members outside of the service side of things. Car and motorcycle showrooms are not exempted from the current MCO rules.
Our colleague from gohedgostan.com recently got a tour of this Ducati PJ showroom that you can check out here.
Here’s the press statement issued by Next Bike Sdn Bhd.
