Motorbikes are now the most popular means of transportation mainly because it is easier to purchase motorbikes that are available in convenient and easy payment terms. You only need a few thousand pesos of down payment and a reliable source of income to get the opportunity to own your very own motorbike.
During my first years at my initial work right after graduation, I already had the opportunity to purchase one just by presenting my monthly payslips as proof of my employment, and I could bring home a motorbike within just a few days.
Now, motorbike riders could be seen everywhere you look which is probably why the 10th Inside Racing Bikefest was highly attended by both pro and newbie enthusiasts of motorbiking for sports, leisure and work.
Among the exhibitors at the 10th IR Bikefest is Yamaha Motor Philippines which is returning bigger than ever to the event. Yamaha has been in the industry for over 60 years and its designs have been unique through the years yet continuously evolving. The brand is already a household name known to many for both music and motorbikes.
The exhibit pays tribute to the consistent evolution of Yamaha products that have gone numerous advancements to give the customers quality beyond their expectations. The growth of these products through the years has been influenced, almost entirely, by the customers. The company prides itself in developing a close relationship with its patrons and takes their preferences and suggestions to heart. Through the years as each generation has changed its outlook, Yamaha has constantly ridden the tide and provided a unique and incomparable riding experience.
Well, the brand takes pride in showing off their bike prowess through the presentation of their Rev Hall, a Gallery of Ingenuity, that was filled with mostly their bikes, plus a corner where you can find grand pianos that were played by a world-class pianist.
Your Pambansang Blogger ng Pilipinas was on the scene when they unveiled the amazing Rev Hall at the opening day of the IR Bikefest on April 2, 2016, and we were very eager to witness amazing transportation machines that would make any rider look really cool and comfortable riding one of their bikes.
This continuous change can also be seen in the physical aspect of the exhibit. The gala was designed under a “BooM” concept which is a highly flexible design that allows multiple forms of arrangements that highlights each product uniquely. This was first seen in the Tokyo Motor show last year and this global style of Yamaha will be experience by Filipino’s up close.
In addition to all this is the collaboration between Yamaha Motor Philippines and Yamaha Music with captivating performances from Yuki Shimada and Mike Chan and the Anthem.
The lineups featured this year are the AT category with the Mio i 125, the Mio Soul i 125, the Mio MXi 125, and the Mio Sporty. The blazing speedsters in the R-Series with the YZF-R15, YZF-R3, and YZF-R1. The sizzling style of the Street Category with the All New SZ and the FZi. A magnificent showing of the Moped category with the Vega Force i and the Sniper 150 Mxi. The pure power of the Big Bike category with the MT-09, Super Tenere, and Bolt. The Max Series featuring the T-Max and the N-MAX. The Yamaha exclusive Leaning Multi Wheel (LMW) tech in the Yamaha Tricity. And for the first time on display are the side by side UTV YXZ1000R, the MT-07 showing a darker side of Japan, and the 03-Gen that unifies racing style and technological superiority.
This is certainly the biggest endeavor Yamaha has done to date. Supporters of the brand and riders in general will get their money’s worth as they experienced another milestone of the company. It is an irreplaceable experience to walk in the Rev Hall and witness the redefinition of timelessness. One that Yamaha will continue to provide; a Rev like no other.
