Kawasaki Motors launches Barako II-A A +A
Sunday, July 20, 2014
FOR the hardworking men whose everyday lives are spent on the road – the tricycle drivers, the delivery boys, and all the other motorists – it takes great focus and intense drive for them to reach their dreams. Their livelihood requires brute strength to traverse challenging destinations. And it demands enormous emotional endurance to sustain their unwavering determination. Qualities that each of these men possess.
Kawasaki recognizes these strong qualities of Filipino men. Kawasaki Motors (Phils) Corp. introduces its latest model – the Barako II with its new color and graphics to commemorate the strength of a tough guy and the heart of a Filipino.
The new Barako II now wears the elements of the Philippine flag – three stars and a sun artistically painted on its fuel tank. It comes in three different paint finish – the Ebony Black, the Candy Plasma Blue, and Candy Fire Red.
Barako II still boasts of an engine that’s 15 percent stronger than its initial model, Barako. Compared to its predecessor, the Barako II is 13 percent more fuel-efficient, allowing the Filipino rider to reach farther. It is also equipped with the proprietary Kawasaki Automatic Compression Release System (KACR), which makes engine kick-starts easier. That’s why together with its telescopic front fork and heavy-duty rear shock absorbers, the Barako II promises a smooth ride from start to finish.
The road to success may be a long and challenging journey. But with the toughness of the new Barako II, and the qualities of the “barako” men, no road is impassable and no dream is unreachable.
