Yamaha Motor Philippines, Inc. had just participated in the 10th IR Bikefest by unveiling the REV HALL, A Gala of Ingenuity by Yamaha.

This symbol of growth is Yamaha’s dedication to giving their customers the best form of motion possible.
On the first day of the bike fest the exhibit area was closed off to the public until noon for its grand opening. As dozens gathered around the area, the curtains dropped and an explosion of confetti greeted everyone in attendance. Everyone made a dash inside the Rev Hall where World Class products that were made for them, by them, were waiting. Pound for Pound Host Rico Robles and the alluring Karen Bordador took everyone on a stroll around the different Yamaha categories. On display were:

The YXZ1000r, a pure sport side-by-side 4-wheeler that conquers different terrains. Also, a glimpse into the future of performance with the 03-Gen; a fusion of the Leaning Multi Wheel technology and Yamaha’s Racing prowess.

Team Mio Soul i had the most attendees in the event with over 200 riders present, because of this unprecedented arrival they were given a special gift of a signed shirt by Yamaha MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi.
Even as the weekend was slowly winding down, the Rev Hall was still a sight to hold with performances from Yuuki Shimada, Mike Chan and the Anthem, using Yamaha Musical instruments; a collaboration that is a first for Yamaha Motor and Music.
It was 2 days of passion and perfection that cannot be duplicated. This was more than just a moment, more than just a milestone, this was Revving Hearts at its finest.
