“The Click 125i is our answer to customers who are looking for Environmental friendly SuperSports 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”.

GM-FI, a technology pioneered by Honda since the introduction of Honda CX500Turbo in 1982, the 1st in the world Fuel Injected Motorcycle is also used in this model. However, the innovation is not focused on the Fuel injection of this scooter. Every aspect that was developed in the Click 125i is Honda’s effort in providing products that delivers better benefits and exceeds customer expectations.

Honda’s dedication to provide the Joy of riding a motorcycle is clearly demonstrated in the use of the revolutionary HONDA SMART TECHNOLOGY. The Click 125i brings future technology to the present with cut-away innovations never seen before in the local motorcycle history such as Enhance Smart Power (eSP), Idling Stop System (ISS) and trendsetter Combined Brake System(CBS).

While it does not have a “sixth sense” and cannot predict your thoughts or where you want to go, the Click 125i, has its own version of eSP and knows what riders want from their scooters.

Honda’s eSP or Enhanced Smart Power is an advance 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  *<Actual fuel consumption may be higher or lower depending on drivers habit and actual driving condition>.

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…

Shell Eco-Marathon is back in manila

Rizal_Park_Facing_Quirino_Grandstand

Coming from the successful security and traffic management of the state and pastoral visit of Pope Francis in January, the local government of Manila is preparing for another similarly important event geared toward sustaining the uptrend in tourism-related activities in the city.

The Shell Eco-marathon Asia, a competition of environment-friendly cars invented by engineering students from all over the region, will be held once more at the Rizal Park on February 26 to March 1.

Last year was the first time the prestigious regional event was held in Manila, during the centennial celebration of Shell companies in the Philippines. The country will host the Shell Eco-marathon until 2016.

A portion of the Rizal Park will be closed off for the event, where a special racetrack will be constructed along with a stadium and event grounds to enable the public to safely participate and witness the proceedings.

A corresponding traffic re-routing scheme will also be implemented by the Manila city government on the said dates of the event.

Over 1,000 delegates and visitors from abroad will arrive in the country for the Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2015, for an estimated crowd total of over 40,000. In 2014, the event drew 33,000 visitors.

“It is a big privilege for the Philippines to host such a renowned and highly anticipated event,” states Lyndon Lumain, general manager of the Shell Eco-marathon Asia. “Most importantly, it puts us on the map of the global advocacy on smarter mobility and fuel-efficient driving.”

“We join the city of Manila in anticipating the five-day event to stimulate much-needed activity in the local economy,” adds Lumain.

Despite the potential inconveniences in terms of traffic re-routing, “we enjoin everyone to extend understanding as well as cooperation,” he says.

The Shell Eco-marathon Asia is open to the public. In order to help manage the anticipated crowds, interested visitors are encouraged to register beforehand. For more information on the event, visithttps://www.shellecomarathon.ph/registration.

NEW LOOK, MORE POWER

The new Honda XR150L is the step-up of XR125L, taking its best features with updates to create a package that combines rugged durability with low operating costs.

For starters, the Honda XR150L simply looks stunning. It now sports a more CRF-inspired design as compared to its predecessors. Fresh styling includes a new headlight design with protective shield for better illumination while a futuristic meter panel gives you more information to make your ride safer and improved front & rear winker to a sporty design for added attraction.

The seats also get an ergonomic makeover providing more On/Off riding comfort even during those long rides. Practical and useful, the XR150L adds a multi-functional grill that lets you carry everything you need. There’s also a new internal engine balancer which reduces vibration and will result in greater rider comfort.

Honda’s XR150L also boasts of a more powerful 150cc engine, which hosts a range of improvements beginning with an offset cylinder that utilizes the same technology with CRF250L for efficient transmission of explosive power and but with better fuel efficiency.

The Honda XR150L likewise requires less attention and enhanced reliability and safety with its larger air cleaner and a sealed, maintenance-free battery. The Honda XR150L is also equipped with an electric start and a backup kick starter.

THE Honda XR150L ADVANTAGE

Besides all the visual and engine improvements the new Honda XR150L also has several advantages over similar motorcycles in its class. It has a seat height of 825mm which is suitable to the average Filipino height while its 1362mm wheelbase provides better handling and drivability.

It has the highest displacement of 149.15cc and a maximum torque of 12.5Nm @6000rpm that provides power and torque to easily reach max power at low rpm. The XR150L also has a 12L fuel tank capacity which is good for long rides.

The Front tire size 90/90-19 and rear tire size 110/90-17 makes the best balance for On/Off (50/50) driving condition and the front disk brake diameter 240mm is also bigger for better braking power.

The new Honda XR150L comes in red & black colors and is now available in Honda dealerships nationwide at SRP P83,900.00. For more information, visit http://www.hondaph.com:

Samsung PH and Lopez Museum in a historic exhibit called Propaganda

.ipp

The museum’s original four-story edifice designed by National Artist Juan Nakpil stood right in front of the founder’s residence in Lancaster Street, Pasay. The Lopezes kept the museum open all throughout the martial law years. In 1986, the museum moved to its second and current home at the Benpres Bldg. in Ortigas to protect its collection from the salty air from Manila Bay and the frequent monsoon floods in Pasay. Despite the transfer, the museum remained as a popular hub for Filipiniana materials and rare artifacts. Another thing that sets the Lopez Museum & Library apart is the brand of customer service that it offers to visitors.

ipp

Now on its  55th founding anniversary Lopez Museum and Library featured Propaganda will run from February 6 to May 30, 2015

The museum is home to paintings by 19th century Filipino masters, Juan Luna and Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo. 1884 Esposicion National de Bellas Artes in Madrid won the Filipino some international recognition in the field of fine arts. Luna’s Spoliarium received one of the three gold medals awarded while Hidalgo’s entry, Las Virgenes Cristianas Expuestas al Populacho, was awarded the first silver out of a total of fifteen that were given out.

ipp

A walk through the galleries will prove that Luna’s works are in distinct contrast to those of Hidalgo’s. If Luna’s canvases depict drama and a certain bravura, Hidalgo’s portray a delicate sensibility, which a critic has described as “more pure, more serene in feeling”.

The library has a collection of over 21,000 Filipiniana titles, constantly enriched by new acquisitions. Its rare Philippine imprints date from the early 17th century – the oldest being a unique

copy of the Belarmin-Lopez Doctrina Cristiana in Ilocano (Manila, 1620.) Among the other rare books and manuscripts are works by such eminent printers as Tomas Pinpin, Raymundo Magysa, Nicolas Cruz Bagay, Laureano Atlas, and Juan Correa. The earliest book in the library is the third edition (Rome, 1524) of De Moluccis Insulis, by Maximilianus Transylvanus, which has the first printed account of Magellan’s voyage to the Philippines. Another important book in the collection is the famous Relacion de las Islas Filipinas by the Jesuit Pedro Chirino (Rome, 1604). The library also has extensive holding of books from the Spanish and early American period. To these are added old periodicals (such as The Tribune), photo albums of Philippine flora, fauna, Philippine urban and rural environs, and microfilms of manuscripts and the like.

The Lopez Museum and Library, in a technology partnership with Samsung Electronics Philippines Corp , opens its first exhibition for 2015, entitled Propaganda, on February 6, 2015. The exhibition fleshes out the idea of myth-making and its capacity to inspire change or derail genuine national progress. Featuring Samsung Smart TVs and Samsung  tablets installed with a museum app called “Facets”, the exhibition combines traditional media with digital content resulting in a unique and immersive museum experience. It is an exhibition that challenges not just our notions of art and history, but also how we view museums and libraries.

The Lopez Museum and Library was founded on 13 February 1960 by Don Eugenio Lopez, Sr. in honor of his parents, Benito Lopez and Presentacion Hofilaña. Don Eugenio built the museum in order to provide scholars and students access to his personal collection of rare Filipiniana books, manuscripts, maps, archeological artifacts, and fine art

Ricky Francisco, co-curator of Propaganda, said the exhibition was conceived to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II with Don M. Salubayba, 2009 CCP Thirteen Artists Awardee and one of the most promising artists of his generation. Salubayba unexpectedly passed away during the planning process and the exhibition evolved to also be a tribute to him. The exhibition includes a few of his important works such as Pagsasabuhay, Abysmal Abound: Trinity of Passiveness, and his “anino-mation” (shadow puppetry animation) A Not so Giant Story (Legend of the Philippines) that have been sourced and borrowed with the help of Tin-aw Art Management.

Also featured are World War II posters, election-related archival materials, LVN movies still photographs, a collection of rare maps, Philippine imprints; a recreation of Santiago Bose’s 1983 installation Pasyon at Rebolusyon that has been reinstalled by Kawayan de Guia; commissioned works from social realist and Negros Occidental-based artist Nunelucio Alvarado; 2012 Thirteen Artists awardee Joey Cobcobo; and writer and Gawad Urian awardee film-maker Alvin Yapan. Enriching the exhibit and re-framing the exhibition issues are works by 18th century masters Juan Luna and Félix Resurrección Hidalgo, along with those of national artists Fernando Amorsolo, Jose Joya, Cesar Legaspi, Vicente Manansala, and J. Elizalde Navarro from the permanent collection.

Co-curator Ethel Villafranca says that this exhibition invites visitors to “reflect on where we, as a country, have been and where we are going”. Ultimately, Propaganda aims to engage the public, challenge them to see the connections in history and culture within the objects in the exhibition, and be more discerning when presented with information, whether political or otherwise.

ipp

Through Samsung Smart TVs and mobile devices, visitors will see ultra-violet scans of Juan Luna’s Espana y Filipinas, revealing details behind the painting; flip through digital copies of the library’s oldest books in its collections that date back to the 15th century; watch a video of the conservation process of these old books; and view several of Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo’s studies of Per Pacem Et Libertatem on a tablet device.

The museum also has selected works by  National Artist Fernando Amorsolo, who gained prominence during the early 30’s and 40’s as the artist who popularized the era’s rustic Philippine landscape and the lovely dalagang Filipina. Throughout the years, the museum has acquired paintings by many of the country’s National Artists including Victorio Edades, Botong Francisco, Jose Joya, Ang Kiukok, Vicente Manansala, HR Ocampo, Cesar Legaspi, Arturo Luz, and J. Elizalde Navarro. Important artist such as Fernando Zobel, Nena Saguil, Macario Vitalis, and Romeo Tabuena are also represented in the museum’s ever-expanding collection. The museum is equally proud of its under-rated pieces from Alfonso Ossorio, Juan Arellano, and Dominador Castañeda.

 

Propaganda will run from February 6 to May 30, 2015 and is presented with support from Samsung Philippines, Gourment Frams, Inc., Tin-aw Artists Management, the heirs of Doña Narcissa de Leon (LVN collection), and ABS – CBN Film and Media Archives. For more information, call Tina at 6312417 or email lmmpasig@gmail.com.

Lopez Museum and Library is at the G/F Benpres Bldg., Meralco cor. Exchange Rd., Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Museum and library hours are 8-5pm Mondays through Saturdays except

Sundays and holidays.
