There’s at least one bright spot during the COVID-19 pandemic: Motorists and industry players stepping up to lend frontline healthcare workers a helping hand during the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine period.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen regular commuters loan their bicycles and electric kick scooters to essential workers in need of personal transport. Car companies have also taken the initiative to activate idle fleet units to shuttle healthcare personnel to and from hospitals.
Now, Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines has lent units for frontliners to use.
In a Facebook post released yesterday, Vice President Leni Robredo shared that the Japanese motorbike manufacturer provided 10 Raider J Crossover motorcycle units for frontliners residing in her office’s dormitories to use. Look:
“Ngayong araw ay dumating sa ating tanggapan ang 10 units ng Raider J Crossover motorcyles mula sa Suzuki Motorcycles Philippines, na magagamit ng mga frontliners na nanunuluyan sa mga dormitoryong ating binuksan sa gitna ng COVID-19 crisis,” the VP said.
“Layon ng tulong na ito na mapadali ang pagpasok sa trabaho ng ating mga dormers. May kasama ring mga helmets ang mga itinurn-over na units.”
The Raider J Crossover is an underbone model packing a 113cc SOHC engine capable of 9hp and 9Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. No doubt frontliners will be able to put these new units to good use.
