Yamaha Motor Philippines recently took members of the motoring media and guests up North to Pampanga for a test drive event featuring the new Yamaha Serow 250. The media ride event showcased the features and capabilities of the new Yamaha Serow 250 while conquering lahar terrain of Mt. Pinatubo. The Off-Road wonder returns in stellar fashion for an exclusive adventure in nature.
Before taking off, the participants 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 in to the land of lahar.
The lahar terrain made the ride more challenging and exciting for the riders. Participants were paired up into teams and had to complete different challenges across 5 stations spread throughout the area. From slippery rocks, crossing rivers, to pouring rain, made the riding conditions more difficult but also unleashed the full potential of the motorcycle.
The new Serow 250 is equipped with 250cc F.I. engine producing enough power to push 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.
The Serow 250 Trail ride was an adventure into Off-Road and into the heart of our country. It was a reconnection with nature and the communities that inhabit them. Moreover, this wasn’t just about winning; they were playing for donations that will 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.
The Serow 250 has an SRP of 229,000 available in White Blue and White Orange available in Yamaha Flagship Shop, the YZone, RevZones, 3S Shops, and Multiband outlets nationwide
