Ride the ultimate

Now on its second year, the Honda Scooter Fest, Honda Philippines, Inc.’s (HPI) biggest gathering of scooter riders, was further amplified with the launch of the All-New Honda Click 150i, the company’s flagship scooter that has the highest displacement among the existing Gen-S scooter models, namely the All-New BeAT, Click 125i, and the Zoomer-X.

Confident that the addition of the Click 150i to the Gen-S lineup will increase HPI’s market leadership in the AT and Sports Motorcycle segments, HPI President Daiki Mihara is optimistic that the new model will appeal the preference of younger generation of riders, particularly the millennials. “We at Honda are embracing the evolution that moves us forward to the future. The Gen-S riders are always at the helm of all things new. We share their interest and thirst for ingenuity that shapes our world today and tomorrow,” Mihara remarked.

The Click 150i achieved the feat of having the highest displacement among Honda’s illustrious roster of scooters by featuring a powerful, liquid-cooled SOHC engine, delivering a trailblazing 150cc displacement, significantly higher than Honda’s previous scooter releases which only range from 110cc to 125cc.

Complementing the powerful engine is the Click 150i’s sporty appearance clad in a premium matte finish with distinctive stripes. Now available in all Honda 3S Shops in the Philippines, the Click 150i comes in three variants, namely Matte Gundpowder Black Metallic, Matte Jasper Brown Metallic, and Matte Ion Blue Metallic, with a starting price of PhP 89,900.

Speed aside, Honda also put the environment, energy efficiency, and the safety of its riders as key priorities during the development of the Click 150i. With that, the Click 150i’s engine integrates Honda’s Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology for emission reduction and an ACG starter for smooth engine performance. With the scooter’s Idling Stop System (ISS) activated, Click 150i riders can achieve better mileage, whereas the Combined Braking System will provide sufficient tension to front and rear brakes.

Adding to the features of the Click 150i, it comes with an ample space for storing luggage and full-face helmet with its 18L U-Box compartment. The dual-keen headlight, stylish taillight, tubeless tires, and digital meter panel do not only give the Click 150i plus points in the looks department, but also ensure that riders will have adequate visibility at night, good road traction, and the ability to monitor the scooter’s general health.

Another key feature of the Click 150i which is rare among scooters and motorcycles, if not exclusive to this model, is the inclusion of an advanced Answer Back System that enables the rider to easily locate the scooter in a parking area. Simply press the button of the key remote and the scooter will respond using any of the three tone options and blink with a night signal.
