“When we talk about motoring, we usually hear about youths on motorcycles and them becoming involved in social problems. But the Sultan sees the issue as beyond that, as the youth need to be given guidance and lessons so they can become useful citizens in the future,” he said.

A host of lucky draw prizes worth more than RM500,000, including 40 motorcycles await MBW visitors who register online via the GPMOTO app.
