Filipinos love scooters. In fact, in 2022, a total of 904,343 scooters were sold, or 58% of the total motorcycle sales during that year, according to a report from the Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association (MDPPA) – an organization composed of the Japanese ‘Big 4’ motorcycle manufacturers Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, and Kawasaki.
Well, scooters are often considered as “the perfect ride”, especially if you live in the metro. Scooters are generally fuel efficient, very easy to maneuver in traffic, easy to maintain, gas ‘n go, can carry a lot of stuff and the list goes on. Because of these characteristics, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) has chosen the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 scooter to be their official “hagad” (patrol) to keep their city’s busy streets safe.
A simple turnover ceremony was graced by QCPD district logistics department chief, Lt.Col. Enrico Figueroa, who expressed his gratitude to the ranking city and police officials for providing them with additional vehicles to help with their mandate of serving and protecting the public.
QCPD has acquired 150 units of the Burgman Street 125, all equipped with crash guards, blinkers and other accessories necessary for a patrol unit. The Burgman Street 125, dubbed as the country’s most affordable maxi scooter, is available at authorized Suzuki motorcycle dealers with an SRP of PHP 82,400. Oras na Para MagMotor!
