Honda Ushers a Gen-S Kind of Christmas at SM Mall of Asia

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Honda Philippines once again made a spectacular event for the public and especially to its beloved Honda riders as they held a launch of their latest scooters and motorcycles Gen-S and All-New Honda BeAT on December 3, 2016 at the SM by the Bay area of the Mall of Asia Complex.

We were invited to attend the night program which started with some games or challenges to warm up the audience and set the mood for the nearing program was facilitated by a wacky DJ host and participated by motorcycle riders from different groups and locations. The winners from the games, as well as from the raffle, got to bring home motorcycle accessories like shirts, jackets and helmets.

The official start of the program was hosted by PBA courtside reporter and TV personality Apple David. This was followed by the top management of Honda Philippines, Daiki Mihara, President, coming up om stage to share his opening message. Surprisingly, Mr. Elie Salamangkit was not the one who shared the technical specs of the motorcycles. We later saw him with a bad throat which made him lose his voice. Get well soon to the long-haired Product Planning Manager of Honda Philippines.

The All-New Honda BeAT is a reflection of HPI’s dedication in developing trendsetting and groundbreaking scooters for the young, fun, sporty, and stylish millennials. It comes with a slim but sharp form. It also looks sportier with its new design wheels and tubeless tires while exuding that tech-savvy feel with its semi-digital meter panel with ECO indicator.

After the program, a fireworks display was held making everyone look up into the night sky and appreciate the many colors and sparkles of the exhibition. It is indeed the Christmas season already, of which the New Year celebrations would be a lot more spectacular with almost everyone lighting up their own fireworks.  I have the fireworks on video so please do standby for it.

Of course, the actual highlight of the event, aside from the motorbikes,  was the mini-concert of the Parokya ni Edgar who did around 1-hour of performances. These guys are still making waves and on the right beat when it comes to singing. If you were there, you would have seen how the crowd flocked the front of the stage so they could see the band up close. Almost all were taking photos and videos using their smartphones.
