Ducati-Lenovo Malaysia Partnership Begins With New Laptop
Malaysian Ducati owners can also now enjoy special discounts on Lenovo products.
Two years on since the global Ducati-Lenovo partnership, the official distributed of Ducati in Malaysia, Next Bike has also inked its partnership with the Malaysian-arm of Lenovo.
Through this smaller scale partnership, three Ducati 5 notebooks will be provided by Lenovo Malaysia in the Ducati Malaysia flagship showroom in Petaling Jaya for patrons to experience the same laptops used by the Ducati Corse racing team.
This notebook is the very same limited edition PC that debut in CES 2020 and is the first product born from the global Ducati – Lenovo partnership began in April 2018.
Powered by a 10th Gen Intel i5 Processor and running on Windows 10, the Lenovo Ducati 5 notebook infuses design elements from the Ducati super bikes and features a 12 hour battery life with Rapid Charge fast-charging capabilities. Inclusive of Microsoft Office Home and Student program, this limited edition notebook is priced at RM 3,999 and only available for purchase on Lenovo’s website.
Thanks to this newly inked Ducati-Lenovo partnership however, Ducati and Desmo Malaysia customers are able to enjoy this Ducati-inspired laptop at only RM 3,519. Desmo members are also given early access to Lenovo’s Merdaka Sale taking place from the 10th to the 31st of August to enjoy discounts up to 48% on Lenovo Products.
If talks about laptops aren’t exactly the Ducati customer’s cup of tea, Ducati has also coyly teased that it will be launching the 2020 model line up of its Ducati and Scrambler models soon. Ducatistis can also look forward to Ducati’s Red Weekend that is happening soon for more rewards and rebates on its bikes.
