Honda Safety Driving Center Launches Motorcycle Gymkhana Course


Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC), the road safety advocacy arm of Honda Philippines Inc., is now offering a motorcycle gymkhana course—a course developed to enhance precision riding through an obstacle course under time pressure.

Students are challenged to weave through an assortment of obstacles to test the student’s throttle control, balance, and weight transfer abilities around tight corners under low range speed. Challengers run their bikes as quickly and as precisely as they can under the shortest amount of time possible following prescribed conditions. Riders are generally required to wear complete protective gear; which includes a full-face helmet, gloves, knee and elbow pads, and closed shoes. 

HSDC welcomes all kinds of bikes in this course; whether it is a feisty underbone or a tough sports bike with a larger engine. Either way, students can expect the same quality of training regardless of engine displacement.

The Motorcycle Gymkhana is not an unfamiliar motorsport for many. Its roots can be traced back to Japan, and and it quickly made its way to other parts of the world. While there are other similar activities available in the country, HSDC students are welcomed by top class and highly-skilled instructors ready to impart their knowledge in this unique motorsport.

The research and development leader for small motorbikes for HSDC, Mr. Alex Gregorio, recalls that the incorporation of the Gymkhana with HSDC’s current course line-up was necessary as there is an ever-growing local fanbase in the realm of motorsports. The entire HSDC team believes that the inclusion of this course will not only add to the school’s growing list of available courses, but also add value and serve the students in a more unique manner.

Over the years, HSDC has developed courses for basic training, defensive driving, big bike training, and various courses for fleet accounts, among many others. The company thrives by providing what a learner needs and imparts only the highest quality of education with regard to road safety discipline, because the company believes that everyone must respect all road users.
