Bajaj to upgrade plant capacity

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 12/05/2008 11:39 AM  

India's top motorcycle maker Bajaj plans to spend between US$50 million and $60 million next year to upgrade existing plant here, highlighting the positive prospects for Indonesia's motorcycle industry despite forecasts of slower economic growth. 

The Industry Ministry's land transportation director Panggah Susanto said the company's principal distributor PT Bajaj Auto Indonesia would upgrade its existing semi-knocked down assembly plant to a plant capable of assembling completely knocked down components. 

"They have addressed their commitment to the ministry, saying the Indonesian market is promising. They're now preparing for the dealers," he said. 

"Indeed, the crisis is harmful for all sectors because of the drying up of liquidity. But that will be temporary. We're still optimistic that (motorcycle) sales won't drop significantly in 2009," he added. 

Bajaj Auto Indonesia regional sales manager Lim Sam Hong confirmed the plan, saying it would increase its existing capacity of 100,000 semi-knocked down motorcycles per year. 

Construction is expected to start in mid-2009. 

"We're still considering the type of motorcycle we're going to produce here. But we see the sport motorcycle market is still very lucrative," Lim said. 

Bajaj Auto Indonesia also imports completely built up motorcycles from the Indian producer Bajaj. The imported Bajaj motorcycles range from Pulsars, with 180-cubic centimeter (cc) engines and 200-cc engines, down to the 125-cc XCD engines. 

With around 35 million motorcycles, the country's motorcycle population is ranked third in the world after China and India. 

Sales of new motorcycles however, show signs of weakening. 

The Indonesian Motorcycle Industry Association (AISI) data showed that sales of new motorcycles amounted to 5.81 million units in the first 11 months of the year, up by 18 percent from 4.3 million units booked in the same period last year. 

But the November record of 492,903 motorcycles was already a drop from 515,123 motorcycles in October and 559,637 motorcycles in September, after having reached a 2008 peak at 612,032 motorcycles in August. 

The record high figure in August was boosted by a high demand for motorcycles prior to the Islamic Idul Fitri holiday that fell on Oct. 1.
