As more and more motorcycles hit the road, it also means that many first-time riders are cruising through city traffic without the benefit of proper road awareness and riding experience when compared to experienced riders.
For Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI), safety must always be the top priority while on the road. The company even created the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC) with the sole purpose of educating Filipino riders on road discipline, proper safety mindset, and superior driving skills.
To help riders, especially beginners, stay safe on the road, here are a couple of the best safety practices to do.
Inspect Your Ride
Always remember to check every essential part of your motorcycle from the exterior, such as the Battery, Lights, Oil, Water, Brakes, Air, and Gas, or in short, BLOWBAG.
Ride a Bike That Fits You
Riders must also ensure that their ride is the perfect fit for their physique for them to ride as comfortably as possible.
Ride to Your Own BeAT
Designed with a slim, sharp look and overall compact design, BeAT comes in three (3) striped variants, namely the Street (STD), the Fashion Sport (STD), and the Premium (ISS/CBS). The Filipino millennial motorcycle prioritizes safety above all else with its Combi Brake System (CBS). It also has an Idling Stop System (ISS) for safety and efficiency when not moving, making it fuel-efficient at 63km/liter. BeAT also maintains advanced features and technology like its Enhanced Smart Power (ESP), an advanced engine technology that combines high power and high fuel efficiency. And a Semi Digital Meter Panel with Eco Indicator, tubeless tires, and an attractive headlight and signal light combination cluster.
“It’s all about you as a rider. We need to remember that it’s not just the design and power of a motorcycle. Still, we must also be aware of our environment, the type and capability of our motorcycle, and most importantly, the specific skills required. Concentrate and be alert at all times when you’re behind the handlebar,” said Alvin Arquileta of HSDC.
BeAT is just one of HPI’s vast array of motorcycles, aligned as a part of its “One Dream” campaign, catering to everyone’s daily travel needs and fulfill their dreams through the joy of mobility.
