Being mobile is one of life’s luxuries. But with motorcycles being within the reach of many Filipinos, commuting to and from work or enjoying a leisurely ride is now possible for everyone given this universal freedom of mobility. Despite this, it still pays to put safety ahead at all times.
This is why road safety is not only limited to motorcycle maintenance but to what riders should wear as well. Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country hopes to help keep Filipino riders safe by making everyone aware of the essential riding gear needed for safe riding.
Helmet – The first and most important gear riders should invest in is a helmet. Indeed, a helmet will not just keep you safe while complying with Republic Act No. 10054 or the Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009. The said law that prohibits riding motorcycles without a helmet. This headgear is crucial in protecting riders since the head is what we should protect first. However, it’s not just important to have a helmet, it’s also important to get the right one. Your headgear should have a Philippine Standard (PS) or Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) sticker. These regulatory stickers tell you that it has undergone proper safety testing.
Gloves – Another essential gear riders should have, are a pair of riding gloves. Choose a pair of full-fingered riding gloves that also have hard plastic components like knuckle and palm guards. This type of design not only helps you grip the handles properly, but it also helps protect your hands in case of accidents. Besides, the right riding gloves make you look stylish and cool while protecting your hands as well.
Boots – Footwear is also an important item you should have. So, investing in the right pair of riding boots must be high on your must-have list. Ideally, it should be able to protect your ankles and part of your calves. However, dedicated riding boots can be pricey, but it can offer your feet enough protection – while also looking stylish enough for the office.
Riding Jacket and Jeans – The last type of riding item you should invest in is the riding jacket and jeans. Choose a riding jacket that has spine, shoulder, and chest reinforcement for added protection. As for riding jeans, choose a pair with knee and hip protection. Remember, the right riding jacket and jeans make for a more comfortable and safer ride.

Safe Riding this Rainy Season On Your HONDA PCX160
Staying safe on the road has always been a challenge for most motorcycle riders, especially during the rainy season. It makes roads slippery, it decreases visibility that makes riding less comfortable and enjoyable.
In fact, studies have shown that wet road conditions can increase the risk of traffic accidents. With the rainy season well upon us, the PCX160 – CBS and the PCX160 – ABS motorcycle models and shares as well some helpful tips that can make riding much safer and even more enjoyable.
Avoid Over speeding. This is perhaps the most basic yet valuable tip. Speeding is one of the most common factors contributing to motorcycle accidents. Driving at higher speeds on wet roads can compromise your handling ability and lower braking response time making you more prone to accidents.
Since safety is always top-of-mind in all Honda motorcycles, the PCX160 comes in two (2) variants, CBS and ABS variants.The PCX160-CBS comes with the Combi Brake System or CBS. The CBS variant is engineered to provide about 20 percent braking power to the front brakes when engaging just the rear brake lever.
It offers more efficient braking control while making it ideal even for novice riders and combined with its 134-mm ground clearance, you get an easy-to-handle motorcycle that’s more than capable of tackling the city streets even when it’s raining.
On the other hand, the PCX160-ABS is equipped with front-wheel Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS. This adjusts the braking pressure accordingly to prevent the wheel from locking and assists with maintaining the stability of the bike. This comes in handy especially when you need under the rain when roads are slippery.
Vehicle maintenance goes beyond the engine. It is standard to maintain your motorcycle’s engine. Making sure the engine is in good running condition, there are no oil leaks in the front and rear shocks, the tires have adequate treading, there is still enough brake fluid and, if the brake pads are not yet worn out, are just some of the common things we need to remember when it comes to vehicle maintenance.
However, we all know how visibility can be impaired when riding out in the rain so your motorcycle’s headlights, winker light, and tail light should be functioning well, so can see what’s ahead of you – and be seen by other motorists as well. When it comes to visibility, you are covered with the PCX160. Not only does the bike sport a new and elegant LED headlight, the motorcycle has a new slimmer X-shaped tail light design that ensures that you are easily seen by other motorists.
Be mindful of road conditions. A sudden downpour can make traversing road conditions more difficult. Common road conditions like potholes, diggings, and even fellow motorists can be road hazards which is prone to accident. When it comes to these road conditions, the PCX160 – ABS model can easily handle this because it has the innovative Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) that prevent rear wheel slip. This comes in handy when traversing wet even slippery roads or uneven terrain. What’s more, the bike showcases 110/70 – 14MC in the front and 130/70 – 13MC rear tires for added traction no matter what the condition of the road is.
It is important to know and practice road safety precautions. So, the next time you find yourself riding out in the rain, it pays to know the road conditions and apply safety driving tips during rainy season.
Staying connected – always. Sometimes you need to keep riding no matter what the weather condtion. Keeping in touch means they worry less especially if they know you are on the road in the rain. With the PCX160, staying in touch is a breeze because the bike comes with a secured front pocket with a built-in USB charging port for charging your phone so you can keep contact with your loved ones anytime and no matter where you are.
When it comes to choosing a motorcycle, you can’t go wrong with the PCX160-CBS (SRP: 133,900.00) and PCX160-ABS (SRP: P151,900.00). Not only is it loaded with modern styling cues, it has a 157cc 4-stroke, Liquid-Cooled, 4-Valve, Single Overhead Cam (SOHC) eSP + engine, that packs a punch when on the road so you still experience the same excitement and freedom of mobility at the same time.
So, when you are on the lookout for a motorcycle that allows you to savour a safe and leisure ride around the city or a means to get to work even while out in the middle of the rain, this bike might be the right one for you.
