Yamaha Motor Philippines has turned Mt. Pinatubo into a launching ground for its Yamaha Serow 250.
Prior to the official launch at the Golden Trail Travelers Resort, attendees went on a trail ride before unveiling the “diamond in the rough.”
Prior to the takeoff, the riders were briefed by top-tier coaches led by Coach Mel Aquino to ensure that the participants were aware of safety procedures during the activity. They were dressed in complete off-road equipment for their foray into the land of lahar.
Participants were paired up into teams and had to complete different challenges across 5 stations spread throughout the area. The stops tested the physical and mental abilities of the riders, they also learned more about the Serow 250 in every stop.
The slippery rocks, river crossings, and pouring rain made the riding conditions more difficult but also unleashed the full potential of the motorcycle.
The Yamaha Serow 250 has a 250cc F.I. engine that made it a very able ride through the rough, emitted low engine noise, and consumed less oil.
The suspension enabled great shock absorption and excellent handling as they traversed to different stations. and disc brakes on both ends of the motorcycle provided better stopping precision. And even in the pouring rain riders were more visible with the redesigned brighter tail light.
Aside from the launch, participants played also for donations to be received by the indigenous community in the region.
Each challenge had an equivalent donation such as food, clothes, health packages, and more.
It was just about bragging rights for the team who had the highest amount of donation. But everyone had the privilege of contributing to the support of their indigenous brothers and sisters who also make sure that the area is safe and enjoyable for any and all visitors.
Priced at PHP229,000, the Yamaha Seroww 250 is available in White Blue and White Orange. The said offer is now available at Yamaha Flagship Shop, the YZone, RevZones, 3S Shops, and Multiband outlets nationwide.
