Kymco Racing King 180, Do not let the looks fool you

      At a glance, the kymco racing king looks like your typical chinese scooter or worse, an ebike that has an impression of being slow but don't let your eyes fool you! For the kymco racing king is one mighty scooter that handles good, breaks well and accelerates freakishly fast! It is so quick that most of the automatics that i have ride along with cannot keep up(kamote mode). I was lucky enough to spend a full day with this beast and boy! The experience was awesome! I was able to get a top speed of 143kph on a slightly inclined road somewhere in antipolo. It was raining that day but the dual discbreaks with ABS together with a nice set of tires gave me a lot of confidence to push the bike to its limits.. The headlights provided a good amount of light which lets me see clearly at night, buttons and switches are placed properly and was easy to reach. The LED daytime running lights are also added bonus, makes you more visble all the time! The seat, together with a great suspension gave a realy comfy ride all through my saddle time on the bike. Through my testing period with the Kymco Racing King, I was also able to ride it with a backride where i picked up my wife from work in ortigas then ride back home to antipolo. I was surprised that in spite of having a backride, there was just a little decrease in the torqe of the engine and we were still able to accelerate fast with our combined weight of over 130kgs. (yes we are a heavy couple)

The New Honda XRM 125 FI is Here to Conquer New Roads

Comes in yummy orange!
XRM.  Ah the mere mention of the three letter acronym takes me back in time more than a decade ago when XRM was the bike to be seen on.   It's the king of the, when volume is considered.  They're everywhere!

The staying power of the Honda XRM is incredible.   Now after more than a decade, it is still enjoying a fair share of the road along with newer, and technologically advanced bikes.   And as if to quelch the people's doubt, the new Honda XRM FI is now launched at the Honda Safety Driving Center last Friday.  Yes, the mighty XRM is now fuel-injected.

Suzuki Philipipines Launches the GSX Series at the MX GR82B8

The GSX-R is yummy.

Ah finally after so many dreamy months of waiting, the first GSX bikes were finally spotted at the 8th anniversary of Motorsiklo Xklusibo.

The GSX series come in two new model, the touring-friendly GSX-S 150 and the race-ready GSX-R 150, both sporting the same engine but with different usage in mind.  

The GSX-S 150 is a naked standard bike, built for those who love the smell of the country roads, and of the city smoke as well.   One of it's prominent features is the very distinguished headlamps, which is quite polarizing.   Love it or not, the GSX-S 150 is gonna be lining up the streets soon, due to it's highly competitive pricing with an SRP of P112,800, considering all the technological parts put in it.

The GSX-R 150 is another story though.  Firstly, it's a racebike, used internationall by Suzuki at the ARRC.  The very same bikes used by our top three Suzuki riders, Mario Borbon, April King Mascardo and EJ Sobretodo.  This bike has proven it's speed and agility at the Suzuki Asian Challenge.  It's cousin is still highly considered the king, and this one is preparing for its own thrown as a contender for the king of entry-level sportbike.

GSX-S 150!  Not bad Suzuki! Not bad!

We look forward to personally riding these majestic machines for a full motorcycle review here at  

People piled up to get close and personal to one of the highlights of the MX event.  The 3 new bikes from Suzuki.
