Yamaha Motor Philippines Sets 3 Records for Guinness Book in one day!
The Philippines can now add, The Most Number of Motorcycle Engines Started Simultaneously, The Most Number of Motorcycle Horns Sounded Simultaneously and the Largest Parade of Yamaha Motorcycles to its list of Guinness World of Records.
Yamaha Motor Philippines Inc, with the launch of its new slogan "Revs Your Heart," celebrated its annual Yamaha Club Day making history, by attaining all three world records.
Hundreds of thousands of Yamaha Riders banded together at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, revving their engines, beeping their horns, and parading their bikes, all in support of the group's bid for the three records.
While two of the records were easily created by the club, the world record for Largest Parade of Yamaha Motorcycles, had to be earned. The titlist holder then was TDMitalia, a motorcycle group from Italy that had 206 Yamaha motorcycles, parade at the Santamonica International Racetrack in 2003. However, breaking that record was an easy feat for the large number of Yamaha Club's loyal members present in the event.
After the club's display of solidarity, and awarding of the Guinness World Records, the members were treated to a concert and were given prizes and freebies.
The Yamaha Club was established with the premise of having direct communication with the company's valuable customers. The club gives their customers a heads up on new products and events, as well as freebies and discounts so that their customers can enjoy the "two-wheeled lifestyle." It is now the largest motorcycle club in the country, boasting an estimate of more than 85,000 members nationwide.
This year's Yamaha Club Day was sponsored by Dickies, Monster, BH&R the Bellevue, American Home Appliances, Philstar Ngayon, Sprinto, MotoActive and Shell.
