It is very rare to expect the head honcho of a big company doing a glamorous entertainment number to shock and surprise the audience. That is what Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines President Hiroshi Suzuki did last night as we saw and hear him sing and dance supported by sexy dancers during the opening number of Suzuki Live: A Celebration of Victory in Harmony, which is actually a dealers convention and awards night.
Held on the night of October 26, 2016 at the new and fabulous Conrad Hotel located at the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay city, the attendees, mostly composed of dealers, friends, colleagues, Suzuki Motorcycle Philippines employees, and media friends were both amazed and delighted of Hiroshi's every move which ended with him leaving the stage hooked up on the ceiling away into the back of the Forbes function room of Conrad Hotel.
Needless to say, he truly rocked our world that night. We were still smiling from ear to ear while he made a short speech on stage amidst the huge and growing family of Suzuki Motorcycle Philippines.
We are also appreciative that the company even flashed the names of their media outfits after showing those of the dealers. Wazzup Pilipinas is proud to be included as one of their many media partners. Seeing our publication name projected on stage, and seen by the many attendees, is totally amazing.
The night was hosted by the lovely and sexy singer actress Roxanne "Roxee" Barcelo and the vibrant sportscaster Boom Gonzalez.
Aside from being an awards night at the later part of the event where Motortrade Nationwide Corporation emerged as the Dealer of the Year, Suzuki took the opportunity to present their new showcase of motorbikes namely the Burgman 200 ABS - a global maxi scooter powered by a 200cc fuel injection system, engine ABS breaking system, huge storage compartment and very stylish design. There's also the Raider Breed models available in Matte Black Premium Edition which are available in the Raider J115 Fi and the Underbone King - Raider R150.
The very popular Gixxer is made more exXhilirating with the new jingle that's perfect for riders. FHM's sexiest woman, Jessie Mendiola, sizzled on stage as she danced to the tune of the Gixxer jingle.
Popular young stars Inigo Pascual, Loisa Andalio and Sofia Andres also did some dancing during the Para sa Lahat ng Trip Mo segment - one of the biggest news of the night featuring a campaign intended for the young Millennials.
Dinner time was opened after a ceremonial carving done on stage with the chef from the hotel and Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines president Hiroshi Suzuki.
You will love the fabulous buffet spread of Conrad hotel.The food choices are superb and plenty.
The launch of the new fashion colors of Suzuki's Underbone motorcycles' Smash and Shooter (released this month) and at the same time a fresh look of the global Suzuki scooter - Address which comes with a very catchy jingle as well. The Smash is available in Frenetic Magenta and Frenetic Purple, while the Shooter Fi, both Spokes and Mags, is now packaged in Cool Dazzling Yellow, Frenetic Purple and Matte Black Edition - all fitted for the youth. But who's stopping the young-at-heart peeps from purchasing one of these bikes too.
Suzuki also announced their newest celebrity endorsers - Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil. However, the two could not make it to the event probably due to their busy schedules. Hiroshi said they are doing a movie. They were able to send in a video message that was played at the event.
Suzuki also gave a special acknowledgement of the owner of Wheeltek Motor Sales Corporation, Dr. Reynaldo Odulio, who was celebrating his birthday on that day. The birthday celebrator shared an inspirational message to his peers in the industry.
You can see some of the videos below and the rest will be available as soon as we are done uploading them.

Congratulations to Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines for a very successful event. Congratulations to all the dealers who won a recognition. Most were even given cash prizes to acknowledge their accomplishments.
Motorbikes are very in-demand since it is the fastest way to go from one point to another. It is the only vehicle that enables you to conveniently maneuver around traffic congestion and other road conditions that poise problems. I guess there's no stopping consumers in patronizing the product since it is also very affordable, fast and easy to get a unit. Brands just need to become more competitive in terms of prices, features and after-sales services.
More power to Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines and see you again soon at your next events.
