Wheeltek unveiled its new Suzuki 3S Shop and Big Bikes Center in San Fernando, Pamapanga last October 7.
The jam-packed event saw the opening of both the Suzuki 3S Shop which boards the brand’s complete lineup of small displacement bikes as well as the Suzuki Big Bikes Center which offers Suzuki’s well-loved higher displacement motorcycles.
The 3S Shop and Big Bikes Center are housed in a two-storey building with a total area of 475 square meters. The superstore at the heart of Pampanga will become a one-stop shop for anything Suzuki motorcycle-related including sales, spare parts and after-sales service.
The morning program was designated for the 3S Shop opening, the second in the province, and was kicked off by a motorcade with more than a hundred riders participating. The motorcade was then followed by the formal opening ceremonies and unveiling of Suzuki’s latest small bikes led by the Skydrive Fi, the much-awaited Raider R150 Fi, the Raider R150 Carb with new decals, the GSX R150 and the GSX-S150.
The festivities went onwards with a Buganda performance and Suzuki President Hiroshi Suzuki’s signature dance number to the tune of Suzuki’s Para sa Lahat ng Trip Mo campaign jingle.
The Suzuki Big Bikes Center officially opened in the evening, following the opening of the 3S Shop, which was attended by more than 200 big bike riders from across Luzon.
The San Fernando shop is currently the biggest Suzuki Big Bikes Center in the Philippines with an area of 288 square meters. The event saw the launch of the Suzuki GSX-S1000F street bike which shares the engine and main components of the legendary GSX-R1000, and the V-Strom 650XT ABS.
The shop is Wheeltek’s third Suzuki Big Bikes Center joining those located in Makati City and Cabanatuan City.
