Honda Philippines, Inc., (HPI), in partnership with JMS Motocross School, exhibited its commitment to sharing the joy of mobility, this time by providing different models of its popular CRF series to JMS Motocross School.
Honda takes pride in its rich history in off-road motorcycles, from the 1970s-era Elsinores, through the XRs of the 1980s and 1990s, to the post-millennial CRF models. 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, students may use the CRF250RX and the CRF450R Works Edition.
“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.
Filipino motocross legend Coach Jovie 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 CRFs are the best bikes for starters, veterans, amateurs, and professionals,” says Coach Saulog. “I have been using Honda CR125 and CR250 since the two-stroke days in 1985, and the CRF250 and CRF450—the start of the Honda four-stroke—in 2002 up to now.”
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 to JMS-Honda Motocross School.”
