Davao City, Davao—Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) brought together Honda riders and enthusiasts for a day of fun-filled activities at the recently concluded Honda Riders Convention 2018: Mindanao Leg at the Davao Convention and Trade Center. This is one of the many activities HPI holds under the ONE DREAM campaign, which celebrates the Filipino’s dreams brought to life through its products.

During the event, HPI emphasized how the riders are important to the company’s success, inspiring them to create the best products and latest innovations that suit the riders’ lifestyle. In line with this, the company showed off its latest models.

First, HPI featured its automatic models, starting with the Honda BeAT. It comes with its stylish new stripes in nine exciting colors designed for the young and fashionable Filipinos. Equipped with a powerful performance but fuel-efficient engine, it has fuel consumption of 63km/L, helping you save around P700 on gasoline expenses.

HPI also introduced the PCX150, which exudes class and style while delivering a premium performance and having an economic fuel consumption of 51.3km/L.

HPI debuted a new color variant from the high, on-road sports segment: the CBR150R. Now available in Mat Gunpowder Black, it features a new, aggressive, and speedy stripes design. It has a fuel consumption of 42.8km/L. Since it is meant for high speeds, it’s built with a Bank Angle Sensor, a safety feature which automatically turns the engine off when the motorcycle is leaning at an extreme angle.

For the off-road sports segment, the all-new CRF150L was showcased, which embodies the striking and aggressive image of the CRF250R. It makes riders more daring in undertaking off-road pursuits while saving up on gas consumption with the model’s fuel consumption of 54.8km/L.

Finally, HPI unveiled the new stripe design of the RS125, a model from the mid sports cub segment which now shares the sporty image of the RS150R. It is equipped with a four-stroke, air-cooled, PGM-Fi engine, which is fuel efficient at 61km/L.

Riders also had the opportunity to participate in various activities geared towards their interests as motorcycle enthusiasts, such as the test ride activity, the Riders Skills Challenge, and Motor Show. To add excitement, HPI honored the riders’ special skills and talents through the “Riders Got Talent” competition and the “Miss Honda Riders Con 2018” segment. To cap off the day, various clubs were recognized for their various achievements with the awarding ceremony. There were also performances by local musical talents Nairud Sa Wabad and Daybreak.

With the goal to reach more Filipinos throughout the year, Honda will also hold the Riders Convention in Visayas in the coming months.
