Honda Philippines, Inc., the No. 1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, recently announced that it would be opening its doors for customers to test ride their Honda Big Bike Adventure series exclusively at the world-class Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC) in Parañaque City.
“At Honda, we know that not experiencing to ride a motorbike can sometimes become a deal-breaker, particularly when it comes to big bikes. These motorbikes are like beasts that really get everyone’s attention because of their stance,” said Hervic Villa, Motorcycle Planning Department Manager, Honda Philippines.
“However, for big bike riders, we know that it is more than just its stance that they are looking for. And that is why we want our customers to experience riding our Honda Big Bikes so it will be easier for them to decide which one is right for them,” he added.
The free test ride activity aims not just to introduce the Honda Big Bike Adventure series but also to give prospective customers first-hand experience riding them. It also gives them an opportunity to have a one-on-one session with an HSDC instructor.
The test drive activity will include two of the most incredible Honda big bikes, the All-New X-ADV and The New Africa Twin.
The All-New X-ADV is a standout innovation that perfectly combines urban and off-road experiences. It captures the essence of modern adventure, mainly as it blends the balance and stability of a scooter with the toughness of an off-road motorcycle.
This big bike is equipped with a strong tubular-steel chassis with a 745cc twin-cylinder engine and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). The latest model also features a 5-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Full-LCD Digital Meter Panel that paves the way for the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS). This technology links the rider to their smartphone while on the road, making it easier and safer as it allows voice management of weather, navigation, telephone, message, music, and volume.
The New Africa Twin, on the other hand, is Honda’s embodiment of a thrilling all-terrain experience as it can ignite its rider’s spirit to the wilderness, may it be through mountains or strips of vast lands, with its 6-Speed Transmission and an all-new 1,084cc 4-stroke parallel-twin engine.
Watch out for the signup sheet to be posted on Honda Philippines’ official Facebook page. Successful registrants will receive a confirmation via private message by September 2021 while the Test Ride activities for the Honda Big Bikes will be held in October 2021. For now, schedules will solely be on weekends and will start once the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) lifts the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) guideline status in Metro Manila.
For everyone’s safety, all participants must comply with HSDC requirements, adhering to the safety protocols set by the IATF. This includes the submission of a medical certificate or a negative RT-PCR test result for COVID-19. The test ride activity will be limited to eight participants per the scheduled day to ensure that social distancing and proper sanitation are observed.
