Post launches Fast Bikes Thailand

Friday March 29, 2013


Fast Bikes Thailand - the Thai version of one of the UK's best-selling superbike magazines, Fast Bikes, has been launched as the newest product from Post International Media.

The launching event, held at the Eden Zone, CentralWorld, was presided over by Post International Media's CEO Supakorn Vejjajiva.

"There has been a remarkable growth of international magazines in the Thai market. Post International Media, as publisher of Elle, Cleo and others, has seen a growth in terms of revenue of over 10% last year," said Supakorn.

"With the trend of media globalisation, there is potential growth in international men's magazines from the overall market. Therefore, the company has decided to expand into the men's magazine market with a license agreement with Fast Bikes, the UK's fastest growing motorcycle magazine. Fast Bikes targets superbike fans aged from 22 to 65 years." he said.

Krisda Sawamiphakdi, managing director of Post International Media said: "The domestic sales of motorcycles is positive, with a growth of 917% for the past five years due to changing consumer lifestyles. The number of new motorcycle registrations has reached 9.2 million units and it's still increasing. This year we expect the market will remain in a bike boom with a target growth of 103% from the previous year. With the bike market booming, we would like to serve the readers of this segment."
