Italian brands Pirelli and Ducati are technical partners.
Present at the activity were Pirelli Asia Sales Manager Mr. Justin Yeo as well as Mr. Louie Ruben and of course Caloocan Sales Center’s Mr. Philip “Pipoy” Ang who all rode to Costa Pacifica resort in Baler on Ducati motorcycles. Ducati Philippines’ CEO Mr. Toti Alberto and wife Ms. Joy Alberto were also present together with Ducati mechanics. Senator JV Ejercito also participated in the ride.

“We have ridden from Manila all the way to Baler, through twisties, through straight roads. The reason why we are doing this together with Ducati is the introduction of the new GT II. The new Pirelli Angel GT II is a step up from its predecessor, the Angel GT, with revolutionary new technology and also different tread patterns. It’s updated through our experiences with superbike and gives you exceptional handling in the wet and of course dry grip as well,” shared Mr. Justin Yeo.
Indeed, the Ducati riders who participated in the ride had positive feedback for the new Angel GT II tires and noticed that these tires are more stable on the road. A product presentation about the Angel GT II tires was held and riders’ questions about Pirelli’s new tire were entertained and answered. The Angel GT II tire is a good choice for sport-touring riders. For more details about the Pirelli Angel GT II, check out https://www.pirelli.com/tyres/en-ww/motorcycle/all-tyres/sheet/angel-gt-ii.
