Honda Philippines, Inc., (HPI) re-exhibited its commitment to sharing the joy of mobility by providing different models of its popular CRF series to the country’s first motocross school. The project aims to help support the growth of the Philippine On/Off-Road segment, in partnership with JMS Motocross School, headed by its namesake, Filipino motocross legend Coach Jovie Saulog.
“Everything we do at HPI revolves around the single idea of sharing the joy of mobility. We hope that through this partnership with JMS Motocross School, more people will discover the value of that principle by experiencing the excitement of off-road riding in a safe environment,” says Honda Philippines Inc. MC Planning Department Manager, Hervic Villa.
As part of the partnership with JMS Motocross School, HPI will be turning over the CRF150L and CRF300L models as training bikes for those who want to learn off-road riding. Meanwhile, for those more inclined to competitive motocross racing, there’s the CRF250RX and the CRF450R Works Edition that students may use.
An icon in the Philippine motocross circuit, Coach Saulog has been involved in the sport for more than three decades. He started teaching motocross in the 1990s and established JMS Motocross School as the first of its kind in the Philippines.
The school caters to off-road riders both for competitive racing and leisure riding. JMS Motocross School also fields a racing team that remains active in competitive and invitational events all over the country. Coach Saulog has handled students who went on to become national and international champions.
“There are a lot of good motocross riders in the Philippines, making motocross a very competitive sport,” he says. “You can improve your skills and riding using a CRF by enrolling in JMS-Honda Motocross School.”
