Malaysia’s TuneBoss Launches ShiftBoss 2.0, RM250

Published

on

Taking two years of development, Malaysia’s home grown motorcycle performance manufacturer TuneBoss has released the TuneBoss 2.0 quickshifter, priced at RM250. Designed to be combined with the TuneBoss ECU, ShiftBoss 2.0 is more affordable than a typical motorcycle quickshifter system using a load cell.

Made more reliable than its predecessor, ShiftBoss 2.0 also caters for several different motorcycle models that are fitted with the TuneBoss ECU from the Yamaha FZ150i and Y150ZR previously. Currently, the TuneBoss ECU can be installed in the Yamaha R25, R15, MT-15, Y16ZR as well as the Honda RS150R, giving faster gear shifting


Installation of ShiftBoss 2.0 must be combined with a Stage 1 TuneBoss ECU at a minimum, priced at RM399 for the ECU module in a Yamaha MT-15. With a combined purchase price of RM649, including installation which can only be done at one of 49 authorised TuneBoss dealers in Malaysia, TuneBoss riders are ready for track riding with performance mapping for stock engines given free.

“As of today, there are more than 30,000 users of the TuneBoss ECU globally since it was launched seven years ago in October 2014. With the new ShiftBoss 2.0, we are happy to say that more customers will be able to enjoy this technology that was previously mainly available on high performance bikes,” said FSR Technology chief executive officer Farhan Ali.

2022 Mazda BT-50 Pick-up Truck and MX-30 EV or CX-30 CKD Coming to Malaysia Soon – Preview on Nov 29

Published

on

Mazda distributor Bermaz has released a teaser of two upcoming models, which it will preview on November 29. The sole image only shows silhouettes of the new cars, but we can see that they are an SUV of some kind as well as a pick-up truck.

The identity of the pick-up is pretty obvious, because Mazda makes only one – it’s the new BT-50, based on the latest Isuzu D-Max. It has a unique exterior design but shares the same cabin and mechanicals as its sibling, including the 150 PS 1.9 litre and 190 PS 3.0 litre turbodiesel engines and six-speed manual and automatic gearbox options.

It’s the unknown SUV that’s a little harder to discern. The shape appears to belong to the CX-30 at first glance (Bermaz is working on CKD local assembly for the car, after all), but look closely at the rear end and you’ll see a tiny bump reminiscent of a round taillight – exactly like the ones on the MX-30.

This makes sense, given that the electric vehicle was due to be launched before the CKD CX-30, alongside the BT-50. In fact, the MX-30 was supposed to have arrived in Malaysia more than a year ago in October 2020, but the timeline has obviously been shifted, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


More recently, a Maybank Investment Bank research article reiterated that the MX-30 will be coming, subject to Mazda’s approval and the government’s EV policy (which has since been revealed). It also confirmed that the car will be introduced in fully electric form, rather than the mild hybrid model also available in certain markets. To recap, the MX-30 EV is powered by a 145 PS front motor, juiced by a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery to deliver range of 200 km on the WLTP cycle.

Don’t discount the CKD CX-30, however – last we checked, production of the crossover was due to start in December ahead of the 2022 on-sale date. Expect the car to be offered with the same range of engines – a 164 PS 2.0 litre Skyactiv-G petrol four-cylinder and a 116 PS 1.8 litre Skyactiv-D turbodiesel.

Selangor Aiming to Install 10,000 EV Charging Stations by 2025 – First 1,000 Units Expected to Be Ready in 2022

Published

on

The Selangor state government has announced it is aiming to install 10,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across the state by 2025, with the first 1,000 stations expected to be ready next year, according to the Selangor Journal.

The ambitious plan was outlined by Selangor MB Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari earlier today. Speaking at the tabling of the 2022 Selangor Budget at the state legislative assembly, he said the state is looking to pioneer EV usage, and the development of a charging infrastructure would help expand that scope in faster fashion.

Amirudin said that the state government and private parties would collaborate on the project, which will involve an investment value of RM10 million. It was not detailed what type of chargers would be utilised or what rates, if any, consumers would be expected to pay for charging.

He did however say that incentives would be provided to businesses and industries that invest in EV infrastructure projects, and there would be no public parking charges imposed on EVs next year. “The incentives include a reduction of business fees and assessment tax. Apart from that, parking fees which come under the jurisdiction of the local authorities will also be waived for EV users in 2022,” he explained.

The state’s plan to develop an EV charging infrastructure sounds timely, given the upcoming EV push announced by the government during Budget 2022. In the outlined plan, EVs are set to be completely exempt from import duty, excise duty, sales tax as well as road tax for a period of two years, starting from January 1, 2022.
