After confirming its arrival in September, Voge Motorcycle Philippines invited select media, vloggers and many Voge owners to their Manila showroom for the unboxing of the first Voge 500 AC to arrive in the Philippines.
The retro inspired roadster naked bike, is the third 500cc model in their line up in addition to the popular 500R Streetfighter and the 500 DS adventure bike.
AC stands for Advanced Classic. Unlike other classic or cruiser bikes which are designed to replicate old motorcycles catering to that segment of enthusiasts that prefer nostalgia, the 500 AC is a modern bike with modern design elements and technologies but with classic design lines. It is more BMW R9T than Harley Davidson or Royal Enfield.
It also has the smooth and torquey 471cc liquid cooled, parallel-twin engine coupled to a smooth shifting transmission and comes equipped with premium parts like Pirelli tires, Nissin brakes, BOSCH EFIand ABS as well as KYB suspension. This formula has attracted many satisfied and loyal customers to the brand both in the Philippines and in Europe.
There is a completely new traditionally shaped classic tank and tan/black colored seat with a lower seat height, a round headlight with LED technology, conically shaped stainless steel rear silencer, higher handlebars and the license plate including the LED indicator moves from the rear down to a swingarm.
There is new updated TFT dash that has interesting features like connectivity, screen mirroring useful for navigation, and even Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) . It also changes color automatically depending wehther it us day or night.
The SRP is only P320,000 with a P10,000 duscount for the first 30 buyers. They are now accepting deposists with units to arrive in early 2022.
In fact, the bike was so good that it sold its first unit on the same night as Mr. and Mrs. Sherwin Don Villanueva became the first owners of the VOGE 500AC.
