Honda is offering riders the chance to test some of their most in-demand big adventure bikes this October 2021. The test rides will happen at the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC) in Parañaque City.
The test ride is absolutely free. By organizing this event, Honda hopes to introduce and explain all the features of the Honda Big Bike Adventure series models. Customers will get a first-hand experience as well as a one-on-one session with an HSDC instructor.
The X-ADV combines the balance and stability of a scooter with the toughness of an off-road motorcycle. It’s powered by a 745cc twin-cylinder engine and Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), mounted on a tubular-steel chassis. It comes with a 5-inch TFT LCD meter panel with Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS). The Africa Twin, on the other hand, is Honda's true adventure bike. It’s powered by an all-new 1,084cc parallel-twin engine paired with a 6-speed transmission.
To sign up for the test ride, follow Honda Philippines' official Facebook page. A link will be posted there this August 2021 where interested parties can fill out forms with the necessary information, and select the exact date they want to do the test ride. Those registered will then receive a confirmation via private message by September 2021.
The Test Ride activities will start on October 2021. Test rides days, for now, will be on weekends only.
Confirmed participants must comply with HSDC requirements. These include adhering to the safety protocols set by the IATF. In this case, they need to secure a medical certificate or a negative PCR test result for COVID-19. The test ride is also limited to eight participants per the scheduled day to ensure that everyone can practice social distancing and observe proper sanitation.
"At Honda, we know that not experiencing to ride a motorbike can sometimes become a deal-breaker, particularly when it comes to big bikes. These motorbikes are like beasts that really get everyone’s attention because of their stance," said Hervic Villa, Motorcycle Planning Department Manager.
"However, for big bike riders, we know that it is more than just its stance that they are looking for. And that is why we want our customers to experience riding our Honda Big Bikes so it will be easier for them to decide which one is right for them," he added.
