After 13 years of recognizing the best car and truck models on the Philippine automotive stage, Car Awards Group Inc. (CAGI) finally shares the spotlight to its two-wheel counterparts with the awarding of the first-ever Motorcycle of the Year Philippines (MOTY-P) this 2017.
Named as the very first of the said prestigious accolade at C3 Place in Greenhills, San Juan City last November 27, 2017 were the following:
The Suzuki Raider R150 FI: CAGI and Carmudi.com.ph Motorcycle of the Year-Philippines Commuter Class (299 cc & below)
Suzuki GSX-R 1000 R: CAGI and Carmudi.com.ph Motorcycle of the Year-Philippines Leisure Class (300 cc & above)
The Suzuki Raider R150 FI was the winner in the Commuter Class (299 cc & below) as it was downright slick and stylish not to mention being equipped with a fuel-injection system that can rival other larger bikes.
On the other hand, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 R indeed lived up to its title as “King of Superbikes”, as it did not only turn heads because of its suave sporty design or cringed every nerve in the body for its orgasmic and superior mechanical prowess but absolutely put competition to a halt as it was deemed the safest among all motorcycles tested.
“Finally, after months of challenges just to stage the very first Motorcycle of the Year-Philippines, we’ve eventually come up with the results,” CAGI Ronald de los Reyes said in his speech.
During the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) 2018 basketball tournament that was held last October 20, the Miss Cocpo 2018 was also conducted. Adjudged winner is Kia Cañete. Here she is being flanked by Cocpo director Senior Supt. Nelson Aganon (right) and Mayor Oscar Moreno (left)....
