Summer is usually the season for motorcycle shows and exhibits. But with the threat of COVID-19 is still very much around, event organizers have shifted to virtual shows to highlight the latest models, riding apparel, and accessories.
We announced earlier this year that Motogarahe.com’s Online Moto Festival was scheduled from April 12 to 18. However, the event has now been moved due to the reimplementation of enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila and surrounding provinces.
“Hence, after careful consideration and discussion with our partners and stakeholders in the motorcycle industry and the current local government restrictions, we decided to move the event on May 24 to 30, 2021,” says Hermiz Ramoran, general manager of Motogarahe.
Despite this minor setback, Motogarahe has announced that Honda Philippines, the country’s leading motorcycle company, has already signed up as an exhibitor in the virtual event. With this big catch, Ramoran is optimistic that the other major motorcycle manufacturers will follow suit in the coming days.
The event presenters thus far include Shell Philippines, Kymco, Suzuki, Royal Enfield, Bristol, and TVS. There will also be branded riding apparel and motorcycle parts and accessories up for sale from brands such as Imprint Customs, Motul, Alpinestars, KYT, Racing Force, Prestone, HJC, Gulf Oil, Lev3, and Motoworld.
Exciting prizes await lucky viewers, including a brand-new motorcycle, a one-year supply of Shell Advance motorcycle oil, P5,000 worth of gift certificates from Merrymart, and a one-year supply of Trust products. Motogarahe is targetting at least 8,000 viewers per day for its event.
