The Yamaha RX-Z fever still hasn’t died down in Malaysia. A few days ago, it was reported that at least 40k Yamaha RX-Z owners attended the “RX-X Member 4.0 2022” club event at the Malaysian Cub Prix in Terengganu. As luck would have it, a Yamaha RX-Z owner successfully sold his bike in exchange for a plot of land.
The owner of the rare bike, known as Nik Mohd. Zulkifli Lee shared the good news through a Facebook group, “Kelab Jual Beli RXZ” yesterday (17th August). “2022 history, RXZ Catalyzer swapped with a land plot. Praise to God, (my) blessing,” he wrote in the post.
While Nik didn’t disclose the exact value of the RX-Z bike or the land lot, fellow “Kelab Jual Beli RXZ” club members congratulated him on the deal. However, some netizens were shocked when the agreement was made known, especially regarding the original landowner’s decision.
Some of the netizens were delighted for Nik. They commented on the post, “The landowner even sold his land for the RX-Z. This is your blessing,” and “The new owner of the (RX-Z) Catalyzer is blessed as well.” A netizen also questioned the purpose of the post, whether it was just for content or to raise the bike’s value.
Another Facebook post by Nik smoothly dismissed the allegations when he confirmed that the transaction did occur. “It is true, gang. The RX-Z bike swapped with a plot of land!” he wrote in the post along with a few pictures serving as proof.
The land in Kelantan that Nik owns now is said to measure 500 square metres. It is also known that the Yamaha RX-Z Catalyzer was first introduced back in 2003. The two-stroke naked bike ceased when Yamaha stopped producing it in 2011, which is how it came to be considered a rare bike.
