Furthermore, Uchida added, “Last year, Suzuki held the first Suzuki Grand Invasion, which was basically a culmination of a whole year of the year’s Suzuki Invasions which were implemented nationwide starting January 2010.

This year, we would like to underscore that we are the only integrated automobile and motorcycle company in the Philippines and that, they can expect a bigger and more aggressive Suzuki in 2012”.
