By Nug

Hi.. Welcome to my (ride report) blog.

It is part of the other side of my life, I guess. Get away from the hectic of my working routines and environment as a corporate lawyer and businessman. Here I am enjoying different kind of relaxing but still challenging at the same time; riding my touring or sport bikes. Hm.. Looks like I never get away too far from a challenging (and some how, risky) activities.

In this blog you could see my riding activities. A bit different with my other blog (Hanya Kata-kata), in this blog you could see a lot of pictures. So far, I have ridden my Ducati Multistrada (mostly with a group of riders) in Sumatra, Java, Bali Islands and Malaysia Peninsula. I would like to explore more and ride in Sulawesi Island and other parts of Indonesia this year (if possible) or next year. Would you like to ride with us?

 I also write down my sport riding activities, including track days like this:




Some other bikes related issues or activities could also be found here.

Please enjoy and feel free to comments.

Best regards,
Agustus Nugroho

    Hi everyone,

    I think this is the best place to ask questions 🙂 The other day I was browsing the Internet and I came across a whole bunch of Ducati distributors/dealers and what not, all in Indonesia. I could not resist but contact a few of them, they all told that these bikes were originals.

    Here is the link:

    I couldn’t sleep that night thinking what a bargain, but it’s too good to be true, in my oppinion.

    Can somebody shed some light on this subject and explain what the heck is going on here?



    Hi Robert..
    Wow.. I could not believe this..!!
    We know exactly amost every single bike in Indonesia. Those bikes and the Company’s Names referred therein are NEVER EXIST legally in Indonesia..!! The bikes mentioned are also inccorect (a Ducati Monster with a Honda CBR, Ducati Demosedici RR with 1098 picture, etc). This could be arrange by a or some HECKERS which we do not know where. Please ignore and do not spent your time dealing with this kind of people.


  20. 21 antidot123
    November 21, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Yeah, good deals, eh? Check this out:

    ARAI helmets:

    I’ve talked to a few “distributors” they want $80 USD for RX-7 helmets.

    Gee, you guys live there, you don’t know anything about this?


    Those distributors has NEVER Exist legally. No real address is available for this kind of activities. If you could meet them phisically and see the goods offered by them here, you could even pay them triple price offered for RX7 Arai Helmet and that is still classified as a veru good price. But, will that thing happen? You may try and pay them USD80 if you like, and hope the helmet will come to your address, one day.. which we will never know when, if it ever reach you.

    “Gee, you guys live there, you don’t know anything about this?”
    Robert, if you live here, in Indonesia (with 300 million popullation spread out in more 13.000 islands) will you know? I will know this kind of activities if it is real and they start offering their product “directly” (not via Internet) to Ducati community here in Indonesia. But, how should I know this people, if they are really Indonesian ? They even don’t know what they are selling (See their offer of a Ducati Monster with Honda CBR picture, or Ducati Desmodedici RR with 1098 picture, etc). We do not know this kind of people, if they are really esist in Indonesia. Do you know all people in your country who has an access to internet Robert? We are also not a Cyber Crime Police Officer. Come on Robert.. ask a more reasonable question..!!

    Cyber Crime is exist every where in the world. Even FBI has a specific department to take care of it which showing that it’s existence is quite a lot in USA.

  21. 22 antidot123
    November 21, 2008 at 5:09 pm

    In my last question I was just wondering that these type of things can happen and nobody knows about them.

    If it’s true, you can pick up a nice helmet for a fraction of it’s cost 🙂


    Internet trading is not something common yet, in Indonesia. We usually still buy things directly at an old fashion store. I have answered the rest of your questions (if that really, questions), above.
    I’m wondering if you really know Ducati, or not looking for a “strange ilogical unbelievable cheap price of goods” how can you ever trust or interested to someone offering you a Monster with CBR pic, or Desmosedici with 1098 pic ?? I guess we should stop the discussion about this topic here. Thx.

    Hi Noeg,

    I submitted some of my comments in your other weblog.
    In this page I only want to ask the existance of very old motorcycle shown above. Does this bike still exsts ? Where the photo was taken ? In Indonesia ? If you know who own it I would really like to meet and see closely this rare species.
    Thank you and my warm regards.
    P.S. When we can ride together again Bro Noeg ?

    Dear Pak Joesril,
    I’m very happy that come and visit here.. Thanks ya Pak..:)

    You are reffering to that antique bike right? Hm.. I’m not so sure if I could help. I just met them on one Sunday morning arround Kebayoran Baru on their convoy, and took their pics. See my report about them here:

    Yes, it will be nice if we could ride together again Pak.. 🙂

    Hello Oom Nug,

    Very nice riding reports.

    I’m enjoying to read every your reports, right now I already finished reading your Oct & Nov 2007 reports :-).

    Hello Pak Nug.

    I am a Ducati Fan, a big Fan, but just so happens I am only a Fan not an owner of one.
    But I hope that soon will change.

    I am on the market for a used monster, I’ve been to your store a couple of times but still the used ones are way beyond my tiny budget.

    I heard from your employee (Inggar?) that there are finance companies (Massil & Niaga?) willing to cover used bikes.
    Can I have the contact number and person for that company? Is Niaga willing to cover used ones?

    And one more thing, If I get the bike from a user, can I lease them directly or do I have to buy it through your Store first ?

    Sorry for so many questions..



    Hi Sam,

    Thank you for visiting my blog.
    The is only one or two 2nd hand Monsters on the market. I’m sending you email for more detail discussion.

    Best regards,

    Hi, I think we had allready some email contact. I`m Uwe, just arrived from Swizzerland. Unfortunately I had to leave my Ducati there. I am looking for some informations on regulations of motobike riding in Indonesia. Some colleagues told me you need to be member of a club, e.g. For sure if I would buy my a bike it should be again a Ducati. Are there shops here? For any hint I would be thankful.


    Hi Uwe.. Welcome to Indonesia..:)
    Hope you now understand due to a very high tax regime, Big Motorcycle Proce in Indonesia is very high. Come to Ducati shop in Automall at SCBD (beside Pacific Place and closed to The Jakarta Stock Exhange Building). You may get all information about Ducati there.
    Anyhow, if you have any problem, you may always contact me.

    Best regards,

    I appreciate the pictures, well taken and tell the story of this riding adventure. I am writing from California so your description of fresh air (in contrast to pollution here) the good breakfast in Puncak Pass, and the beautiful scenes are of great delight. Thanks for sharing, ride safely, and continue to share in your blog.

    @Pak Nug – siang ini saya iseng ke showroom tutup ya, Pak?

    oh iya, apakah di showroom ada test unitnya?


    • November 28, 2010 at 1:36 pm

      Yaa.. hari ini kita semua ke Sirkuit. Seri terakhir (Seri 5) Kejurnas Superbike dan Supersport di Sentul. Sekaligus merayakan keberhasilan Ducati Indonesia Racing Team menjadi juara nasional kelas Superbike 2010 dengan Pembalap Matteo. Juga Pembalap Dimas di kelas Supersport yang berhasil naik Podium 3 untuk kedua kalinya.

      Kita tidak menyediakan motor test ride khusus, tapi calon konsumen yang serius, dengan pengaturan dimuka, kita bisa atur kalau mau coba beberapa type seperti Multistrada, atau Superbike. 🙂

        Yaa, seperti sebelumnya, Pak. Yang namanya penikmat .. apa aja dinikmatin walau cuman suara dan penampakannya saja. Udah dikasih izin foto-foto aja alhamdulillah. :D. Minggu depan apakah showroom buka, Pak ? Saya dan sepupu mau coba kesana lagi .. belum kesampean foto-fotonya 😀

        BTW, Congrats buat Ducati Team. Denger-denger Dimas baru 18 tahun ya ? Seumuran dengan saya berarti :D.

    Saya dari majalah Inspire terbitan Management Consulting Center, Telkom Bandung, ingin wawancara via email mengenai komunitas Ducati yang tampaknya kian menarik dengan dibukanya Ducati Surabaya baru-baru ini. Bila pak Nug berkenan, saya akan kirimkan daftar pertanyaan. Oh ya, apakah ada anggota yang tinggal di Bandung? (Maaf lewat box comment, saya tidak mendapatkan alamat/nmr kontak Pak Nug)
    Mohon kabar,

    Om nug, mau nanya dong,

    kalo ducati yang paling cocok buat harian apa ya? apa ducati monster?

    berencana untuk pake harian soalnya hehe..

    sangat berminat sebenernya sama ducati monster, tapi dia masih berpendingin air cooled untuk mesin segede itu.

    selain itu jakarta kaya gini kan udaranya panas dan sering macet walaupun rute yang saya laluin ga terlalu macet sh..

    nah itu realibilitas nya ducati gimana ya? apa sanggup ngaepin cuaca jakarta?

    oh iya sama ducati monster 696 bakal tetep ada ga ya? atau bakal digantiin sama ducati moster 795 ke depannya?

    • March 30, 2012 at 2:52 am

      Bro Adit,
      Wah, sorry lama gak up date blog dan baru liat comment nya. Paling enak buat harian bisa jadi Monster 795 atau Hypermotard 796, Bro. Keduanya naked tapi punya riding style yg berbeda. Kalau ingin yang naked tapi lebih agresive, sekarang ada Streetfighter 848. Motor ini baru aja di launching tgl 18 Maret lalu, dan tampaknya banyak yang suka. Untuk cuaca Jakarta + Macet, motor2 tadi, bahkan juga motor2 yg lebih besar cc-nya, seperti Monster 1100 Evo, Hypermotard 1100 Evo, Multidstrada 1200 atau Diavel (yg juga pakai engine 1200cc), juga masih oke. Tapi kalau jenis Superbike *walau lebih keliatan dan gaya) memang lebih panas. Semoga bisa menjawab ya 🙂

  55. March 29, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    wah, senang nemu blog ini sewaktu googling soal ducati…
    saya anton, at the moment i’m a jeeper and hoping to be a ducati streetfighter rider as well soon, hahahaha…
