Yes! The Brompton is now sold in Malaysia. There is no need to go to London, Thailand or Singapore to get this versatile bicycle. Now, one can buy the Brompton from dealers in Malaysia at a pricing range suitable for oneself.

To commemorate this, Ngee Cycle Trading, the distributor for Brompton in Malaysia, aptly held an official launch function at London Town Cafe at Publika in Kuala Lumpur. Seeing that the Brompton is from London, it's an appropriately named place to hold the launch.

Members of the press, dealers, bloggers and some Brompton users were invited for this launch.

Bromptons of different configurations and colours were on display for eager eyes to appreciate. For the range of configuration and accessories see Brompton Custom Builder. To try out how the bike look in different colours see Brompton Colour Configuration.

And for those who wanted the hands-on feel, four trial bikes were available. A few did really ride on these bikes to get a feel of how the different handles types suit them.

After an introductory speech by representatives of the dealer, an avid Brompton user demonstrated how easily and compactly the Brompton can be folded. He also espouses how useful and convenient the bike can be used for commuting - i.e. ride, fold, get on train/bus, unfold and cycle. It can also be used as a shopping cart when partly folded with the handle unfolded.

Guests who registered were in for a further surprise! They received goodies bags with a colourful Brompton brochure, an Official Brompton T-shirt and a Brompton Car sticker. Finger food and drinks were also served.

And.... two lucky guest won prizes in their lucky draw - a mini Ortleib Bag and a Brompton Rack Sack.

The price list displayed with the bikes. Please note that this price list is for March 2014 and is subject to change. Use it as a guide and contact your nearest dealer for an accurate quote (see list of dealers below).

Go get a Brompton. It's a robust and versatile bike that folds compactly; and is suitable for both commuting and bike-touring. All in, a worthwhile investment.
