Who needs bike mods when the Honda AirBlade 150 already comes loaded with cool gear right out of the box?

September 20, 2020

This so-called “new normal” we’re facing these days presents various changes in how we live, work, and play. Perhaps, one of the most noticeable is the rampant use of motorcycles for easy commute around the metro. Not only are they convenient but also safe, reliable, practical, and enduring—indeed, a wise investment.

If you own a motorcycle, sometimes, making modifications can boost to your bike’s appearance and at times, its performance. These motorcycle mods will not only make it more personalized; they will also make for a better riding experience. Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, lists some of these essential motorcycle modifications that would make your riding experience better, safer, and more convenient.

LED Lights. One of the reasons why most people hesitate to ride motorcycles is because riding such small and quick vehicles can be dangerous, especially in the dark. LED lights bring outstanding illumination rivalling even that of cars. It has broader and brighter beams, which helps other vehicles be aware of your presence on the road.

Anti-Theft Alarms. You can have numerous ways to protect your motorcycle from theft, like using chains to secure the wheels or attaching a disc lock on the front brake disc to lock brake and throttle controls. However, motorcycle thieves are still equipped with the right equipment to crack these security measures. Try installing an anti-theft alarm on your motorcycle so that your bike is safer from theft.

Utility Box. Yes, your motorcycle already has a bag hook and trunk space to carry your belongings. However, these storages may not always be suited to accommodate your needs. Installing utility boxes on your bike will address your storage problems and may even do away with the need to carry anything on your person! These boxes come in different sizes that allow you to carry small items to even something as big as a full-sized helmet.

Brake Mods. You can only go as fast or slow as your brakes allow you. Suppose your motorcycle can accelerate as quickly as a moving train but cannot slow down fast enough without catapulting you through the air? Always check if your motorcycle’s stock brakes are adequate to allow the right acceleration and deceleration for better safety and peace of mind.

Suspension Mods. Suspensions are the foundation of a vehicle’s performance, even on motorcycles. These come in different types depending on the riding style and the terrain the bike drives on. Finding the right suspension for your motorcycle drive will significantly improve its riding comfort as well as its safety and security on the road.

Looking for shops that will help you modify your motorcycle to have these essentials can take time and might be expensive for your budget, but these mods’ benefits will be worth it. But what if you can have all these features without the need for modification?

All these essentials are found in The All-New AirBlade150. This stylish motorcycle boasts of its powerful 150cc SOHC liquid-cooled engine for prime acceleration superiority in stop-and-go situations.

The All-New AirBlade150 also has Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) which prevent wheels from locking up, All-LED Lighting System including headlight, position light and tail light for excellent road illumination, and Smart Key with Answer Back System & Anti-Theft Alarm.

It also includes a spacious 22.7L Utility Box that can accommodate helmet with enough room for personal belongings with a Power Socket and LED Lamp inside. It also has a Digital Meter Panel that keeps track of your riding with an easy-to-read display system, Park Brake Lock that gives added safety and convenience when on a standstill, and it has a fuel efficiency rating of 47 kilometers per liter.

The All-New AirBlade150 comes in three awesome colors: Matte Galaxy Black Metallic, Candy Caribbean Blue Sea, and Candy Ross Red. It is available at all of Honda's dealerships with a suggested retail price of P109,000.

There is nothing to fear when entering into the new adventure of riding, especially with HPI’ The All-New AirBlade150 being only one of its wide array of motorcycles that’s in line with their “ONE DREAM” campaign, which aims to fulfill the dreams of Filipino riders through the joy of mobility.
