- Action-packed WHEELTEK-SUZUKI Raider 150 Track Day Held In Tarlack
- First ever Raider R150 Track Day at the Tarlac Circuit Hill
It was an action-packed weekend as Wheeltek Motor Sales Corporation and Suzuki Philippines Inc. held the first ever Raider R150 Track Day at the Tarlac Circuit Hill on May 28, 2017 which was attended by hundreds of club and independent riders. Known for creating so many firsts in the country’s motorcycle community, Wheeltek, in partnership with Suzuki Philippines gave opportunity to everyone to try the Raider R150 on the racetrack for free.
The activity aims to gather all riders to feel the power and test the performance of the Underbone King on the circuit. And the more than 400 riders (both Suzuki and nonSuzuki users) took this chance to experience the highly acclaimed motorcycle which has been dominating the streets for more than a decade already. The riders geared up and owned the racetrack during their 10-minute lap with much enthusiasm. Understanding that the Raider R150 is a fast motorcycle they went to familiarization on the first laps then proceeded to their comfortable speed on the next ones.
