“This is simply a thanksgiving event for our loyal Yamaha motorcycle owners who share the same passion with us,” Ogura said of the event that was planned after a small gathering two years ago.
“We started this event in a gasoline station and now it grew so big we had to find a bigger venue. We are very thankful to the Cebuanos for their continuing support to Yamaha Motors,” Ogura added.
The activity also aimed to strengthen the camaraderie among the Yamaha clubs in the region.
The clubs that joined were Yamaha Fino Club Cebu, United Sniper Club of Cebu, South Scooter Club, All Mio Club Cebu, SZ16 Riders of Cebu, Yamaha Cebuana Club, Soul i Exclusive Team Cebu, Mio MXi Cebu, FZ16 Club Cebu Philippines, Mio Elite Scooter Cebu, Vegaforce Riders Pack, Tribu Del Mio De Bohol, Street Monarch Sniper Club Bohol and R15 Cebu Club.

Yamaha Motors Philippines Inc. also unveiled an upgraded version of the Sniper underbone motorcycle, the Sniper 150 MXi, to the Cebu market during the gathering.
Aside from the upgraded Sniper, also put on view were Yamaha’s Blue Core technology, the Mio i 125 and the Soul i 125. Each has a unique character that appeals to specific class of riders, all enhanced by the addition of the Blue Core engine.
According to Ogura, Yamaha Philippines will be busy preparing for a series of activities this year, including a racing tournament and several product launchings.
