If you wanna check out Honda, go to Honda Prestige at Ortigas Avenue Extension Taytay Rizal. I saw a Shadow (I think) and a CBR there...Originally Posted by R-1
I have been searching the net for official licensed dealers(that sell bikes with factory warranty) of exciting sportbikes in the philippines but cannot find dealers for yamaha, honda, suzuki, and kawasaki.
The only dealers listed on the net here are for Ducati at accesspluss, KTM, BMW, and Aprilia and Motoguzzi at Ultrabykes, and this last one isnt even listed.
Why are dealers for the big four japanese brands hard to find while the expensive european ones are easy?
Do Dealers for the big japanese four exist here at all?
Wouldnt it be nice to walk into a showroom even just to view these bikes? :(
The distributors for the Japanese manufacturers in the Philippines seem to be only to sell and support the bikes assembled in the Philippines. This means tricycle bikes, underbones and maybe scooters. They seem to have little or no interest in big bikes although some will order for you and some have the occasional one or two big bikes in their showroom (mostly ordered or second hand).
I do find this a little surprising. In most countries it is rare to see a Ducati or a BMW bike but in the Philippines they are nowhere near the tiny minority that they are elswhere. The main reason for this, I believe, is because buyers want a new bike with a full warranty and properly trained service staff. It would seem obvious that if Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki follow the example of Access Plus and BMW Philippines they would get plenty of orders.
Yes Frank, maybe the big japanese four really has a better business here selling scooters and tricycles than the exciting sportbikes. :(
But the BMW andDUCATI dealers seem to be surviving too.
This has me dreaming of an expensive ducati.
A honda,yamaha,suzuki or kawasaki would satisfy me just as well if they had a nice dealer here :drool:
Suzuki makes very nice inexpensive sportbikes.
I guess we'll have to settle for a lot of patience and that "occasional" ordered or second hand dream bike
Thanks Rage, I myt go check out those 2 bikes at Honda prestige
hi guys, can i join? i also have the same problem. i want to buy a yamaha virago 400 cc, i saw some in the classifieds but i wish i could see a brand new unit first before i decide to buy a second hand one, so i would know how much it actually costs and how it looks like with its stock unit still intact. most of the second hand ones i see kasi are already customized. :-)\\do you happen to know a showroom where they showcase these cruiser bikes?
Yamaha XV 750 code name Justice, Jianshe monark 125cc code name Flash, Trike with VW engine, my project bike, Yamaha Virago 400cc, MY NEW BABY code name Liberty
Bro you can check out yamaha showroom in mandaluyong im not sure if theres a display of the R1 or R6 but if you are serious in buying they can order it from japan but you have to wait for a while or if your lucky maybe they have some stock there
enan bro, you are right!!Originally Posted by enanGD
once I inquired there,they require at least 50% DP cash(they don't accept financing, well that's what they told me) and the balance once the unit is already here and ready for you to mess around with and that includes all the necessary papers(tax et al) and registrations.
Besides what I mentioned above, you will have to wait 3-6 months at most for the unit to arrive ...a long wait but its worth it!!
just me though...
