Suzuki Philippines brought over 200 Gixxer riders to the Marikina River Park to celebrate the first ever Suzuki Gixxer Day. Established in partnership with the Gixxer-oriented Road Warriors Club and the Marikina City government, Suzuki held various activities for the riders, including a safety riding seminar, free service, spare parts selling, and other fun surprises. The Thunder Riders Organization of the Philippines (TROOP), one of the brand’s most reputable clubs, also served as the event’s marshals.
Formally opening the occasion, Suzuki president Hiroshi Suzuki dropped by to personally greet the riders and deliver an inspiring speech wherein he reiterated the importance of safety for Suzuki Philippines. He said “Safety riding has always been a priority of Suzuki Philippines’ business. It is in the core of our operations to ensure that more than the exhilarating ride that our motorcycles promise, our riders should also get to their destinations safe and sound.”
It was a one stop shop for all the Gixxer riders as Suzuki presented simultaneous activities for everyone. A free motorcycle check-up and tune-up were offered and shops selling Suzuki Genuine Parts including Suzuki Genuine Oils were put up.
While their Gixxers were being inspected, the riders were given a Safety Riding Clinic by the Suzuki Safety Riding Authority composed of Noel Villapando, Sherwin Florendo, and Rey Abat. The afternoon session tested the skills of the riders as well as their mastery over the Gixxer. It was made even more challenging as they had to do the trials under the rain.
