Suzuki Philippines, Inc. and long-time partner Solid Motorcycle Distributors Inc. (SMDI) reopened the SMDI-Suzuki dealership in Kalibo, Aklan as a certified Suzuki 3S Shop last January 22, 2017. The store is SMDI’s seventh in the Visayas region, with the others located in AS Fortuna and AS AC Cortez (Cebu); Jaro and Delgado (Iloilo); Roxas; and Dumaguete.
In attendance for the opening were plenty of VIPs, including Suzuki Philippines president Hiroshi Suzuki, Suzuki Philippines motorcycle sales and marketing general manager Jun Bulot, Suzuki Philippines visayas regional sales manager for motorcycles Bong Pascual, SMDI president Pablo Chu, 22nd Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines Reynato Puno, and various judges and mayors from nearby areas. Rider groups from all over the region also participated in the store’s opening.
Taking up 353.74 square meters, the SMDI-Suzuki 3S Shop in Kalibo is the biggest of its kind in the municipality. Like all 3S Shops before it, this one boasts an open showroom populated with Suzuki’s latest steeds, including the Smash 115, Address, Raider R150, Gixxer, Skydrive 125, Raider J115 Fi, Shooter 115 Fi, GD110, and AX4.
The store is also adorned with the brand’s latest campaign, “Suzuki, Para sa Lahat ng Trip Mo.” featuring the tandem of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil.
The store offers sales, spare parts, and service for the brand’s bikes. During its reopening, the SMDI-Suzuki dealership treated its first few customers with bonus goodies to their new motorcycles, including a helmet, food package, jacket, registration, and discounts. Moreover, those who already owned a Suzuki bike got to enjoy free maintenance and servicing to their steeds.
Later that afternoon, Suzuki also held a dance and custom bike contest, both hosted by Roxee B.
The SMDI-Suzuki 3S Shop is located at D. Maagma Street, Barangay Poblacion, Kalibo, Aklan.
