Honda recently kicked off the “Honda Asian Journey 2017,” a 570-km Honda big bike caravan that cruised through Peninsular Malaysia for four days, from October 26 to October 29, 2017, ending up at the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix (MotoGP) event. Around 50 journalists, motorcyclists, Honda dealers, and associates from five countries – Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, and India – rode together to the ultimate destination, the Sepang International Circuit.
The journey began at the Malacca Circuit, where Honda held warm-up activities for the participants. The morning program started with safe riding training to ensure that everyone will ride safely throughout the journey. It was followed by a test ride of the 60 Honda big bikes that are available for the journey, including models such as the CB500, CBR650R, CBR1000RR, X-ADV, VFR1200X, Africa Twin, and Goldwing.
The afternoon program was the highlight of the day with a test ride of the Honda RC213V-S, a model based on the RC213V, a racing machine Marc Marquez rode to win Honda MotoGP championships in 2013 and 2014. Honda provided 8 RC213V-S bikes exclusively for Honda Asian Journey participants to experience the excitement of this super sport model.
