Suzuki showcased its strengthened commitment to provide advanced and quality motorbikes through its unique technologies at the recent 12th Inside Racing Bike Festival and Tradeshow (IRBFXII).
The Japanese giant put the spotlight on its class-leading bikes with the Raider R150 Fuel Injected and Carbureted models taking front and center. These coveted motorbikes shared the stage with the good-looking bikes from the Raider R150 Summit 2018 custom-bike contest and Pimp My Raider competition. Also displayed during the 3-day bike fest was the Smash 115 in matte black and fashion colors.
Visitors of Suzuki’s booth were given a taste of the future with a VR Experience that allowed them to virtually own the racetrack on the GSX-R1000R. Suzuki’s signature GSX technology was also highlighted through the Suzuki GSX-Series–GSX-S1000F, GSX-S150, GSX-R150, and Gixxer Fi–display. Rounding out the brand’s display is the adventure bike the V-Strom 1000XT.
Complementing its bike line up was a booth design built on the Suzuki Next 100 campaign. This new campaign signifies the brand’s promise to guide Filipino riders toward a beautifully satisfying future by implementing its signature Japanese precision technology in the next 100 years; a partnership that puts its customers through motorbikes that perfectly fit their lifestyles.
