A close to 9,000 riders convened once again at the Tagaytay International Convention Center (TICC) in celebration Motorsiklo Xklusibo’s (MX) 7th anniversary aptly called MX Swerte sa Siete. Living by its theme for the year, MX gave away lots of items with of course its statement grand draw of not only one, two or three but nine and a half (one is a pocket bike) motorcycle units for the lucky riders!
Included in this draw is the well-coveted Suzuki Gixxer which excited the motorcycle community even more. And the lucky man is Mr. Archie de Guzman of Sta. Maria Bulacan who went home with his brand new Gixxer.
The fun and excitement doubled as a bunch of riders spent their day at the Suzuki Tambayan where they saw the best of the best Raider R150 Custom Bike finalists. They are the monthly winners of the recently concluded Raider R150 Online Custom Bike Contest and were gathered then for one final judging. The participants were Tonchi Catindig of Tarlac, Jonathan Canoza of Antipolo, Dan Mark Briones of Cavite and Jay-Ar Tulod of Tagum went all their way to Tagaytay to showcase their much loved and intricately modified Raider R150. It was a close battle among the participants but Catindig’s entry in blue, silver and white stood out and claimed the Best Custom Bike title as unanimously agreed on by the judges – Mr. Al Camba of Inside Racing Magazine, The Turban Rider himself – Mr. Telly Buhay and Suzuki Philippines Service Head – Mr. Vic Nanasca, and the crowd.
Aside from the contest, riders had a meet and greet and photo opportunity with the Suzuki ladies and the very popular bikes of Suzuki now the Gixxer and the Address. Free burgers were also given away to the first 500 Suzuki Riders who registered and voted for their R150 custom-bike bet. Suzuki freebies (drawstring bags, lanyards and stickers), surprises and lots of games were given away as well for all the riders. Simultaneously happening at the event was the Free Service Campaign at Suzuki’s Work on Wheels Mobile for the first 50 riders with just a purchase of a Suzuki Oil Filter. Suzuki Spare Parts and Apparel were also on sale for the Suzuki riders and fans.
It was another record breaking event for MX as they surpassed last year’s number of attendees. The thousands of attendees this year are looking forward for the next MX’s Anniversary with the theme of Doing Great at Eight and surely the Suzuki Tambayan will be there again.
