The Marikina Riverpark became the center of attention of Gixxer riders as the first ever Suzuki Gixxer Day commenced in the area with no less than 200 astig riders participating on July 23. Established in partnership with the Road Warriors Club (RWC) – a club of Gixxer riders and the city government of Marikina, Team Suzuki presented various activities that will certainly benefit the Gixxer riding community – a safety riding seminar, free service, spare parts selling and fun surprises. One of Suzuki’s most reputable clubs – the Thunder Riders Organization of the Philippines (TROOP) was also serving as event marshals.
It was a one stop shop for all the Gixxer riders as Suzuki presented simultaneous activities for everyone. A free motorcycle check-up and tune-up were offered as well as selling of Suzuki Genuine Parts including Suzuki Genuine Oils. The beautiful Suzuki ladies also joined the festivity and gamely posed with the riders for photo ops.
While their Gixxers are being checked up, the riders were given a Safety Riding Clinic by the Suzuki Safety Riding Authority composed of Mr. Noel Villapando, Mr. Sherwin Florendo and Mr Rey Abat. Formally opening the occasion, Suzuki President Mr. Hiroshi Suzuki dropped by to personally greet the riders and deliver an inspiring speech wherein he reiterated about the importance of Safety Riding for Suzuki Philippines,“Safety riding has always been a priority of Suzuki Philippines’ business. It is in the core of our operations to ensure that more than the exhilarating ride that our motorcycles promise, our riders should also get to their destinations safe and sound”.
The afternoon session tested the skills of the riders as well as their learning in properly maneuvering their Gixxer. It was made even more exciting as they had to do it amidst the rain. Of course the slippery road did not stop them from taking on the challenge of demonstrating what they have learned.
The Suzuki Gixxer has been winning the hearts of the Philippine riding community. It is one of the well-coveted bikes in the country because of its built, design, power and endurance. According to the testimonials of the RWC, the motorcycle is worth every penny of a rider’s hard earned money.
