God tends to give us things we are fond of, and this is aptly reflected in the young and charismatic figure of Musa Rajekshah, the elected deputy governor of North Sumatera for 2018-2023 period. Not only skilled in managing local government, Musa Rajekshah is also known as a fan of motorcycles, particularly Harley-Davidsons. Popularly known by his nickname Ijeck, he officially opened the latest official dealer, Sumatera Motor Harley-Davidson of Batam, in early September 2018. It is the second official dealer for Harley-Davidson in Sumatera, the first being Sumatera Motor Harley-Davidson of Medan.
“The presence of a dealer in Batam not only provides strategic value for convenience and comfort for lovers, communities, and owners of Harley-Davidson motorbikes, but it also contributes to the local economy and tourism,”
says Ijeck, who also serves as chairman of the Harley-Davidson Club Indonesia (HDCI) North Sumatera. “With this official dealer in Batam, of course there will be more international visitors, especially Harley-Davidson lovers, to enjoy motorcycle touring in Batam.”
jeck also explains that aside from Harley-Davidson lovers and owners, the entire automotive community is welcome to visit Sumatera Motor Harley-Davidson of Batam and regard it as a home or a platform to host a variety of positive and creative activities that are able to provide added value to the wider society.
The existence of Sumatera Motor Harley-Davidson of Batam certainly provides a safe haven for Harley lovers. Besides the active local community, Batam is also a Free Trade Zone and the price of Harley-Davidsons in Batam is relatively cheaper compared with other regions in Indonesia. This means that bikers in other regions can buy a Harley and store it in Batam for riding and touring the area, as well as across countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Thailand, and more, all while celebrating the beauty of tourism in Indonesia.
Managing Director of Harley-Davidson Motor Company Asia Emerging Markets Johan Kleinsteuber says that Sumatera Motor Harley-Davidson of Batam not only provides profitable business prospects, but it also allows customers to enjoy a Harley lifestyle experience.
Furthermore, Haji Anif Shah, a founding member of Sumatera Motor Harley-Davidson of Batam and also the father of Ijeck and Musa Idishah, says he is delighted to know that his two sons have a penchant for the automotive world, especially Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He says he also hopes that the dealership in Sumatra, which has been operating in Medan and now in Batam, will be beneficial for the government in supporting national tourism and bringing about notable progress for the entire Batam community and its surroundings.
