Honda is always inspired to create the best products and latest innovations that suit your lifestyle, so we can continue to inspire our Honda riders like you,” Mr. Mitsuishi told the crowd of a thousand riders.

One of these is Honda’s partnership with the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), the country’s most prestigious basketball league.
