Philippines has a healthy number of Pinay riders, too

HPI club riders

Just when you thought that motorcycle riding clubs are filled with testosterone, the local arm for Japanese motorcycle brand Honda introduced their recent ride with lady riders.

A total of 16 members of the Hot Lady Squad, on board their respective Honda Genio, recently went on a weekend ride from Santo Tomas town to The Old Grove in Lipa, Batangas.

Prior to the aforementioned ride, Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) Senior Assistant Vice President Jomel Jerezo welcomed these riders, saying that they are a testimony that motorcycle riding is for everyone.


“We are here to enjoy this ride, the nature, and the comfort of riding your Genio. We expect that everyone will practice road discipline and courtesy.  Let us show everyone that motorcycle riding is something that ladies should not be afraid of.   It should be enjoyed when practiced with road discipline and safety,” he was quoted as saying.

After the ride, many of the riders expressed confidence in using the Honda Genio.

Iba talaga ang ride ni Genio. Swabe dahil easy handling ito. Kayang-kaya kong dalhin!” Carol Andal said.

Andal, who started as a zero learner and developed into an instructor to a big bike rider, continues her passion in riding.

Other participants Lorie Rubianes, Clau Ramos and Lara Villaluz—shared their respective experiences with the Genio.

Dahil on-the-go lagi ako, this bike fits my personality. Bagay sa mga instant rides ko.  With Genio, kahit unplanned rides, walang worries sa mobile charging ko. And with the LED-headlight ng Genio, riding is more visible, kahit abutin pa ako ng gabi,” Rubianes claimed.

“Because of the lockdowns recently, we’re all craving to go out. But we worry about being exposed to the virus during the commute, being close to people we don’t know. Having my Genio solves that problem for me because I can go to safe places like these while maintaining a safe distance from strangers during the commute,” Ramos, a daily motorcycle rider, said.  

“I love to share my experiences in an instant.  So after that long ride, post agad sa FB and IG! But this time, I have fewer worries with charging. I have my perfect travel buddy, my Genio,” Villaluz noted.

Aside from the The Old Grove, the female riders also visited Exclusive Honda Dealer Branches in the area as they were welcomed by Elite Motorbikes in Sto. Tomas, Batangas; Motortrade Topline, Inc. in Tanauan City, Batangas; and Honda Motor Sports, Inc. in Lipa City, Batangas. 

This month, HPI is offering the Bundle of Joys Christmas promo wherein the Genio, as well as the Honda BeAT FIXRMWaveSupra GTRTMX and Supremo , are being retailed with freebies or discounts. The promo is offered in all Honda 3S and multi-brand branches around the country where the models are available.
