KTM Philippines made waves during the recent 11th Inside Racing Bike Festival and Trade Show, the biggest gathering of motorcycle manufacturers and enthusiasts held at the World Trade Center.
KTM Southeast Asia managing director Julian Legazpi, sales director Gianluca Lozzi, and Adventure Cycle Philippines Inc. president Dino Santos showed the exciting line of KTM motorcycles—all “Ready to Roar and Race,” as its marketing campaign proclaimed. The new line included the 200 Duke.
Introduced during the event was 18-year-old racing wunderkind Ralph Kenneth Torres, the first sponsored rider to the KTM RC Cup Asia, which will be held during the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, March to November. Torres has over a decade’s experience on the track, bagging loads of trophies both locally and internationally.

Top dermatologists in the country gathered at the Makati Shangri-La’s Isabela Ballroom recently to celebrate the only US FDA-cleared noninvasive lifting procedure, Ultherapy. It’s a procedure that lifts and tightens the skin on the face, neck and décolleté using ultrasound technology that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to produce new collagen.
Executives and experts from the owner of Ultherapy, Merz, were present during the event including Merz Asia Pacific CEO Lawrence Siow, Merz Asia Pacific regional medical director Owen Sunga, Merz Philippines Healthcare Inc. country manager Jorge Libanan, and dermatologist Fang-Wen Tseng.
“Merz is a privately-owned company based in Germany,” said Siow. “We are dedicated to the development of safe and innovative minimally invasive aesthetic treatments and solutions.
“Our products and services are now present in more than 90 countries, and that includes Ultherapy here in the Philippines.”
Emcee was Angel Jacob, who introduced the face of Ultherapy, Kris Aquino. Kris was looking radiant and youthful, dahlings.
“As soon as I heard about it, I became super interested. It promised me results that would look natural,” Kris said.
“The last thing I wanted was a drastic change that gave me a totally different look. I wanted something subtle, just for a fresher and younger look.”
“Ultherapy gave me exactly what I wanted.”
Ultherapy is holding an “authenticity campaign” involving 23 clinics that offer the treatment in the Philippines: authenticity stickers are found on the doors of these clinics and on the machines.
Partner clinics were awarded Authenticity Plaques, including the Belo Medical Group with the fabulous Vicki Belo receiving the award; Advanced Aesthetics Clinic Co., owned by Venia Javellana, who happens to be Kris’ dermatologist; and Aivee Institute, among others.
“We are truly glad to be offering this breakthrough beauty treatment to the Filipino market, and very proud to be part of your beauty journey,” said Siow. “Cheers to good health and good looks!”
