Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country together with the JMS Motocross School recently organized the first Honda CRF Clinic and Track Day. This was in line with the company’s initiative to further promote off-road riding by giving Filipino riders the chance to learn the necessary motocross skills from one of the best motocross schools in the country.
The fun activity was facilitated by the legendary Off-Road rider Coach Jovie Saulog of the JMS Motocross School.
Participants had the chance to learn about the product facilitated by Emmanuel Dayo, Honda Philippines, Inc. MC Sales Coordinator. The seminar was followed by an Off-Road Training Lecture and an actual demonstration, respectively. This ensured that the attendees were better prepared on how to handle the motorcycles.
“We are privileged to be partners with the Honda Philippines and excited to have the CRF bikes for use in the school. This partnership is important to our organization because we believe that this gives us the opportunity to further promote and professionalize the sport of motocross,” said Coach Jovie Saulog of JM Motocross School. “Moreover, motocross is fast becoming a popular sport, and getting more people interested in this can get more people to engage in it.”
The Honda Off-road competition bikes showcased during the event, namely, CRF125F, CRF150R, CRF250R, CRF250RX, and CRF450R. Furthermore, vloggers and media attendees also got the opportunity to experience riding these awesome bikes at the clinic.
