After a hard battle of skills, strength and endurance, Kawasaki Motors Philippines Corporation finally revealed the first ‘Rouser Dare Venture’ Grand Winner.
Mark “Makie” Benosa of Taguig City was crowned Grand Winner of the first-ever online motorcycle reality show in the country. Makie brought home a brand new Rouser NS160 and a cash prize worth P100, 000.
Being a long-time Rouser rider, Makie is considered one of the influential riders in the Rouser community. Furthermore, as he joined the reality show, he shares, “Sa Rouser Dare Venture, masasabi kong mas na-enhance yung pakikipag-kapwa tao ko, mas nahubog yung pakiki-salamuha ko sa lahat ng type ng rider.”
Meanwhile, coming in second to Benosa was Henry Malaton III, the youngest contender; a 23-year old rider from Cagayan de Oro City.
Ten contenders participated in the said reality show, wherein they had showcased their skills in a series of adventurous tasks and tough challenges. The quest took place in several locations in Pampanga including the lahar areas around Mt. Pinatubo.
Along with them for the ride was the Rouser NS160, which was the same unit used by each of the participants since the first day of challenges. The Rouser NS160 units in question were kept in their stock condition, and no parts or modifications were changed or done along the way.
The grand awarding ceremony was held at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel and attended by representatives from the Rouser clubs, motorcycle dealers, members of the motorcycle media, and executives from Kawasaki Motors Philippines Corp., headed by its Vice President for Finance, Mr. Yasuhiro Yamada. On the other hand, also present during the program were the 8 other finalists who were eliminated over the course of the 9-episode journey.
