Yamaha Motor Philippines, Inc.’s participation in the Inside Racing Bikefest—a first for the company—came with a number of huge announcements geared for the country’s motorcycling scene.
The first was revealed by YMPH president himself, Toru Osugi. They would be opening the Big Bike Business within the year in order to bring even bolder and larger motorcycles to Yamaha enthusiasts. Teasing everyone during the Bikefest were the MT-09 Super Tenere, T-Max 530, and Bolt. Throughout the year, Yamaha would be announcing which big bikes will make it onto the store’s roster.
The second announcement would be the new Yamaha Club System. Kristoffer Manayaga, the club’s head, discussed an online registration feature making membership faster, more efficient, and more convenient. Interested applicants only have to go to www.yamahaclub.com.ph and register via their Facebook profile or email. After completing their profile, encoding their motorcycle make, and updating and verifying their contact information, they will receive an SMS confirmation.
They only have to visit any Yamaha 3S Shop, show the message, make a PHP 150 purchase, and their membership will be made official. YMPH will also send them their YClub Kit to be picked up at the Yamaha 3S Shop of their choosing. The Yamaha Club Card will entitle holders to special discounts and other exclusive perks.
The main attraction was definitely the “Gallery of Dynamism” where bikes such as the Mio Sporty, Mio Soul i, Mio Mx i, Mio Fino I, YZF-R6, YZF-R1, YZF-R15, and Yamaha Tricity were on display to rev the heart of the exhibit’s visitors.
