KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (Motac) will propose to the Transport Ministry to issue special permits to foreign tourists who want to rent and ride high-powered motorcycles in the country.
Motac’s Secretary-General Datuk Isham Ishak said at present, foreign tourists are not allowed to rent and ride high-powered motorcycles even though they have the licence.
“I will send a proposal to the Transport Ministry’s Secretary-General tomorrow for it to consider as one way to encourage more tourists to come to Malaysia.
“Perhaps with this good initiative we can help foreign bikers come to Malaysia to rent motorcycles and ride along the roads in Malaysia, especially in the east coast and Borneo,” he said. — Bernama
