Father’s Day is just around the corner. It’s a special day that allows you to show your dad how much he’s truly loved and appreciated and rediscover his inner sense of adventure. Instead of the usual celebration, why not hit the road and create memories that last a lifetime?
And to help you and your dad plan that special “us-time”, Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country shares some suggestions to do just that with The New CRF150L.
Camping. Not glamping. Remember when you were a kid and you set up camp in the garden or your living room? Go out and rough it up with dad in some breathtaking location. The experience will be made more adventurous for your dad and you. And in case the drive will be over rough, uneven roads, you don’t have to worry because this bike features 70/100 – 21 in the front and 90/100 – 18 rear tires, long-travel inverted Front Fork by Showa.
This makes the front more rigid allowing for better handling and feedback for the road. It also has striped side fairings and a firm extended seat with an 863-mm seat height. These features plus its 285-mm ground clearance give it a timeless – and not to mention imposing – motocross/enduro style feel while also offering practical off-road performance for the adventurer in you.
Moreover, the higher ground clearance reduces the chance of damage when going over obstacles and make the suspension feel less hard thereby, making the riding experience more enjoyable when compared to other motorcycles with lower ground clearance. So, the trip with dad will be not only memorable but enjoyable as well.
Additionally, the New CRF150L can easily handle uneven roads as it boasts a 149cc, 4-Stroke, 2 Valves, Single Overhead Cam (SOHC), Air-cooled, PGM-FI engine capable of delivering 9.13kW max power @ 8,000rpm, and 11.94Nm of max torque @ 6,500rpm. On top of that, the motorcycle’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) feature delivers outstanding fuel efficiency with 45.5 Km/L. This factor allows the motorcycle to make the most of its 7.2 Liter fuel tank thus optimizing its power-to-weight ratio.
Cross-country road trip. Want a different kind of adventure your dad won’t soon forget? Try visiting the places you both like to see but never had the chance to do so. Maybe a trip across the country might just be the perfect adventure trip for your dad? From a remote provincial town up north to a bustling city down south, the trip will surely satisfy the thrill-seeking spirit in your dad while making for a memorable experience.
And for an exciting ride that you and your dad won’t soon forget, The New CRF150L is equipped with a Pro-link Rear Suspension also by Showa. This feature gives you the ability to tune in as much as the rising rate as you want by switching the lengths and shapes of the components. The result is a smoother ride even over small bumps and better control when riding over bigger bumps on the road, not to mention improved maneuverability.
This Off-Road adventure motorcycle is designed to provide riders – and thrill-seeking dads – everywhere with a motorcycle that can hit the trails while maintaining everyday rideability. And why not? After all, what better way for the most important guys in our lives to indulge their sense of adventure than exploring the great wide open in a bike that’s made with both style and substance in mind.
To top it all off, The New CRF150L has safety features in spades. It comes with Front and Rear Hydraulic Disc Brakes, a compact yet powerful headlight, a digital meter panel, and sharp taillights. These elements help ensure maximum visibility and control when riding the bike both on and off-road. And this motorcycle is available in three color variants: Extreme Red, Ross White, and Black with a suggested retail price of P147,900.00.
No doubt, the combination of The New CRF150L’s tough design, capable engine, effective brakes, and outstanding features make it the ideal adventure ride. Why not show your appreciation for your dad’s hard work and sacrifice this Father’s Day by helping him experience an adventure that only a Honda motorcycle can bring, regardless of what adventure you and your dad fancy!
