Okay, Honda Philippines (HPI) is staging a grand product launch tomorrow. Immediately after HPI came out with a social media teaser photo showing a silhouette of a motorcycle, Moto Sapiens decided to pull the cover off from Honda’s new offering ahead of the official launch slated tomorrow at Robinsons Metro East in Pasig and made the call: the scooter in question is in fact the much-awaited ADV 150.
The ADV 150, a mini-me version of the Honda X-ADV 750 scooter, was launched at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Autoshow last July 2019. It's a small-sized scooter with the robust design of an adventure bike. It can tackle light off-road terrain yet can thrive in the city. The ADV 150 became an instant hit, particularly in the Asian region where traffic is a big issue.
We thought that was all that was in store, but it seems the guessing game never ends.
While the Honda ADV 150 is still a burning hot topic on Top Gear PH’s Facebook page, Honda Philippines came up with another interesting teaser on social media. This time, it’s not just a silhouette of a scooter. The new poster shows portions of a lady’s pretty face, and key sections of another scooter, also in silhouette.
Let’s zero in on the mystery scooter first. By playing ‘complete the puzzle ’ the silhouette of the unidentified scooter (wheels, handlebar, front fairing) leads us to believe that it is the new Honda Genio 110. It was launched by PT Astra Honda Motor in Jakarta last June 21, 2019. Images of this fashionable scooter are spreading around Philippine social media. Does this scooter match the personality of Yassi Pressman?
This fact might also be of special interest: The ADV 150 and Genio 110 both come from Indonesia.
Will Honda PH be bringing in the Honda Genio 110?
Well, as of now all we can do is wait until the official media launch tomorrow at the Robinsons Metro East to find out for sure. See you there!
