    Yamaha Motor Philippines just made the summer even hotter with FastFest at SM by the Bay on the weekend of May 4 and 5. The event celebrated the brand’s signature speed, which is exclusively experienced with its machines.

    Leading its lineup of motorcycles are the new Yamaha Sniper155 and Sniper155R. The Sniper155R has retained most of its advanced features, including its liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 155cc single cylinder engine, now with a sportier and more masculine design as well as updated color and graphics combination. The new Sniper155R is now equipped with ABS.

    Making an appearance for the event were Yamaha Philippines Racing Team riders who are currently on a winning streak in the Asia Road Racing Championship and dominating the podium in the recent MotoIR Championship. McKinley Kyle Paz, April King Mascardo, and Gian Carlo Mauricio had their careers shaped by the legacy of the Yamaha Sniper, which has propelled them to become champions. They spoke fondly about their history with the machine and shared their excitement about the newest edition.

    As a surprise treat for all in attendance, Yamaha debuted the original soundtrack of Yamaha Racing Philippines named ‘Creating Champions’ by music artist and newest Yamaha Brand Ambassador, Nik Makino.

    A special test ride was held at Block 16 open parking. It had 11 turns and a straight measuring 111-meters long. The 431m track ensured that participants had a safe experience with maximum acceleration.

    Those who believe they have what it takes to go full throttle like a professional rider were able to test their skills at the Moto Trainer — the official MotoGP Simulator. Meanwhile, those who wanted a souvenir of cornering like a pro could have their photos taken at the Lean Angle Experience, where Yamaha Motorcycles were inclined to mimic racetrack cornering. 

    Yamaha also held a speed contest with the Dyno Shootout. It measured who had the fastest Yamaha Sniper and Mio Aerox based on top horsepower and torque. The motorcycle was strapped to a treadmill-like machine, and riders revved it to the max.  The winners didn’t just get bragging rights, they also received an all-expense paid trip to witness the MotoGP Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia on September 27-29.

    Yamaha continues to push the limits of their machines to deliver the best possible motorcycle. Whether it’s for riding above the rest everyday or creating champions on the racetrack Yamaha will, without question, unlock your speed.
