As Kawasaki Motors Ltd had increased its shareholding in Modenas, all Kawasaki motorcycle models up to 650cc will be rebranded under the Modenas.

Modenas CEO Roslan Roskan said the company shared the same ethos with Kawasaki in prioritising customers which would enable them to access affordable, quality and technology-driven products.
