The annual Kembara Mahkota Johor (KMJ) royal tour in Malaysia will again hit the road this Saturday.

Celebrating its 19th anniversary, the royal tour would involve a journey to 10 districts over four days and would cover a total distance of 842 km.

The highlight of the trip is the truck that Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar will be driving, a RM1.4 million (US$350,000) custom-built red, blue and white Mack truck from Australia, which was received by Sultan Ibrahim in January.

Instead of one truck, the KMJ will also see the debut of two more customized Mack trucks, one embellished in an orange colored theme while the other with a scorpion theme design.

The other two Mack trucks will be driven by Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim and Tunku Panglima Johor Tunku Abdul Rahman Sultan Ibrahim.

Besides the trucks, other vehicles in the entourage includes 35 Harley Davidson motorcycles, ten 4WD vehicles ferrying officials and escorted by Royal Malaysian Police along all the stops.

State secretary Datuk Ismail Karim said the annual royal tour this year has no special theme but the objectives remain the same which is to strengthen the bond between the royal institution and the Johor people in the spirit of 'Bangsa Johor, Raja dan rakyat berpisah tiada'.

"This year, the addition of the Mack trucks will make this KMJ the biggest ever held for the past 17 years," he said at the KMJ 2016 pre launch ceremony at Istana Pasir Pelangi yesterday.
