Honda Click 125i: The Scooter of the Future

Honda CLICK 125i; THE SCOOTER OF THE FUTURE HAS ARRIVED 



Last February 18, 2015, Honda Philippines Inc. officially launched the new Honda Click 125i at the Trinoma Activity Center.

Dubbed as the “future of scooters”, Honda Click 125i, an evolution of Honda’s unique concept of Zoomer-X, is the Philippines’ 1st scooter of its kind that will definitely win the hearts of every Filipino motorbike enthusiasts. 
 “The Click 125i is our answer to customers who are looking for Environmental friendly Super Sports Scooter with superior specification, unbeatable features and “futuristic” design. Fortunately for Philippine scooter market, we are not going to wait for the future, but the future will be now with the introduction of the New Click 125i eSP”, says Elie Salamangkit Jr. – New Model & Accessory Development Manager of Honda Philippines.

The Click 125i presents an aggressive and sporty design with a sleek and innovative look based on the image of the new engine featuring cutting-edge technology and an exhilarating ride, while projecting a “slim & sharp” futuristic image
Honda, staying true to its dedication of bringing joy in motorbike riding, uses the revolutionary Honda Smart Technology in their latest model. 

The Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) is an advanced engine technology that combines high power and high fuel efficiency with a quiet start and smooth eco-friendly engine. eSP technology is able to maximize the efficient combustion and minimize friction to reduce the risk of waste, and to optimize the energy out. eSP technology is integrated with the Unique Honda ACG starter that is able to start the engine jolt free and with a more refined sound, as well as the basis for the application of advanced feature Idling Stop System (ISS). The benefit of Honda Smart Technology is further optimized with the advent of technology Combi-Brake System (CBS) which balances braking the rear wheels and front optimally.

The Honda ACG starter is exclusively developed for comfortable frequent operation of the idling Stop System. The engine is started via the same AC generator used to generate electricity and charge the battery while riding. This eliminates the need for a conventional starter motor, thus there are no reduction gears and gear meshing noises… just smooth, quiet starts.

The PGM-FI built-in Liquid cooled engine boasts of 8.40 kW (11.4PS) @8500 RPM maximum power and 11.16 N.m @6500 RPM maximum torque and delivers class leading fuel efficiency of 64.3 km/liter at 50kph or 58.9KM/liter under ECE R40 testing method 

The Idling Stop System (ISS) of the Click 125i is one of the reasons for its fuel efficiency. Compared to the conventional engine which continuously consumes fuel once the engine is started, ISS eliminates wasteful fuel consumption by automatically switching the engine off after 3 seconds in traffic lights and other brief stops; and when you have to move all you have to do is just to twist the throttle to Start up and Go in less than a second.

In addition, the New Honda Click 125i eSP also features dependable Honda Safety and Security features like standard automatic Side Stand Switch where the engine does not start up when in the down position, and Brake Lock easily operated to prevent the motor jump when started or remains in the idle state when stopped on a hill. Bigger tubeless tires for better traction and more secure feeling and comfort compared to other brands. Another excellent feature is the ever reliable safety magnetic key (Magnetic Key Shutter) which effectively prevents theft and push-button seat opener.  The New Honda Click 125i eSP also has the largest luggage capacity in its class at 18 liters which is capable of storing a Full-face helmet.

Image of this Futuristic Super Sport Scooter is complemented by its Trendsetter LCD Meter Panel and class leading Dual Keen Eyes LED Headlight projecting a commanding “Night-Face-Image”. The LED headlight provides a better advantage for the rider through 80% higher light intensity, 80% more efficient power consumption, and longer lifetime.  
Finally, the Adoption of a wide range of low-friction technologies and Excellent Combustion Efficiency of this engine ensures Click 125i’s better fuel efficiency and better total all-around performance.   

With the latest technology and appearance, the All New Honda Click 125i is offered at a reasonable price of SRP PhP 87,900.00 and available in 3 premium colors: Pearl Horizon White, Asteroid Black Metallic and Candy Rosy Red with Honda Genuine Accessories in selected Honda 3S shops.

Now, the future is here… the New Click 125i driven by the Power of Dreams…

Sinag Maynila: The Country's Newest Indie Film Festival

Sinag Maynila 2015


SINAG MAYNILA is the country’s newest independent film festival that showcases quality and thought-provoking movies from young, non-mainstream Filipino filmmakers. 

Conceptualized and helmed by its CEO and Founder Wilson Tieng, together with world-renowned and internationally acclaimed film director Brillante Mendoza as Festival Director, SINAG MAYNILA gives grants to independent filmmakers so they can develop their individual material to a full-length film for public exhibition.

As a festival that seeks to inspire, educate and enlighten the viewing public, SINAG MAYNILA will feature films that reflect Filipino culture, while presenting social issues deserving of discussion among audiences here and abroad.

When asked why name the festival Sinag Maynila, Mendoza and Tieng explained that Sinag signifies hope and bright future and Maynila because there's already an identity knowing that it is popular not only in the country, but in the whole world. 

The festival aims to create audience for indie films. According to Mendoza, it's not easy to put up a festival because it's a big investment and risky because you wouldn't know if it's gonna earn or not. Sinag Maynila will create a venue and would like to take that risk of opening the independent film thru the help of friends from partners, schools, and media. The goal is not something that can be attained overnight but the organizers are positive that this will be achieved in time. 

Internationally acclaimed film director Brillante Mendoza talks about Sinag Maynila. 
We don't want to be mainstream. We want to be independent and remain independent. We want to create audience for independent cinema. Ayaw nating makipag-compete sa mainstream. That's our goal. - Direk Brillante Mendoza
Tieng even added that there are some indie films that crossed over and became mainstream. Therefore, if the measure of success of a movie is the box-office, then there's also a big chance that indie films go mainstream and be successful like English Only Please and That Thing Called Tadhana.

This festival is promised to be a filmmaker friendly compared to other festivals. They know the sentiments of filmmakers and they paid attention to those. For this season, entries were handpicked by Mendoza and Tieng but with the upcoming seasons, they will already start accepting entries from other filmmakers who would like to join the festival. More details about how to join will be shared during the Closing Ceremonies of the first season.
