August 19, 2021 – Suzuki Philippines, Incorporated turned over the motorcycle unit that the company pledged as a token of appreciation to Hidilyn Diaz for winning the first gold medal for the Philippines in an Olympic event at the latter’s residential condominium in Quezon City.
Suzuki Philippines showed its intent to give Diaz a brand new Skydrive Sport scooter after learning that she loves to ride a motorcycle through an article published online by veteran writer Aris Ilagan. Following her confirmation and color preference, Suzuki officially announced its commitment to give Hidilyn her first scooter in its official Facebook fan page Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines.
“We are one with the whole nation in celebrating Ms. Hidilyn Diaz’ success at the recent summer Olympics in Tokyo. After learning that Ms. Hidilyn loves riding a motorcycle, we thought that it would be a good idea to give her a Skydrive Sport as our token of appreciation to her for giving honor and inspiration to the Filipinos. We are thankful to Ms. Hidilyn and to the whole Team HD for this opportunity,” said Suzuki Philippines’ General Manager for Sales and Marketing Mr. Jun Bulot through a conference call during the turnover.
Diaz fondly accepted her Skydrive Sport and even did a quick test ride of the scooter commenting how easy it was to ride it. She was joined by her training Coach Julius Naranjo who also tried riding the motorcycle. The Skydrive Sport is a fun and easy to ride automatic motorcycle perfect when travelling for everyday commute, running errands or just a relaxing getaway.
“Thank you po Suzuki for recognizing our efforts, thank you po for this motorcycle. Ang ganda po nung motor ako po mismo pumili ng kulay,” Hidilyn said
Suzuki Philippines Incorporated would like to thank Mr. Aris Ilagan of TopBikes, Team HD’s Mr. Noel Ferrer, Coach Julius Naranjo and Ms. Roanne Beltran for their assistance to make this possible.
