If you live near SM Mall of Asia and have been thinking of getting into the vespisti lifestyle, Vespa has just made it easier for you with the opening of its newest dealership at the mall. Vespa Mall of Asia is owned and operated by Moto Filiale, which is led by three successful entrepreneurs coming from various industries: Alex Ching, Bon Ramos, and Jojo Magpoc.

“The pandemic magnified the Filipino’s interest in riding motorcycles,” said Magpoc. “We saw the opportunity for this market to expand seeing that a lot of us really became outdoor people during the pandemic, weekend rides for motorcycle groups are getting more popular and SM Mall of Asia is really one of the more popular destinations for these groups. So, it made sense to open a branch here so these enthusiasts can have a place to meet and hang out,” he added.

More than just being a place to shop for Vespas and have yours serviced, Vespa Mall of Asia aims to create a local community of enthusiasts by introducing premium flagship units and launching efforts like the VIP Membership Card and the Sunday Coffee Club. According to Ching, “When they purchase a unit from us, they are automatically part of the VIP Club. For those with existing Vespa units, they just have to accumulate at least P10,000 worth of our services, parts, and accessories to get a VIP card. Benefits include up to 10% discount on parts and accessories, and up to 15% discount on services here at Vespa Mall of Asia.”

As for the Sunday Coffee Club, Ramos explains that “The idea is every Sunday, those who ride to Mall of Asia using their Vespa scooters get free coffee and they also get to chat with other Vespa owners to share tips with each other.”

“That’s the vision that we have for Vespa Mall of Asia. Aside from us carrying and selling Vespa units, we also want to give our customers the full package starting with outstanding after-sales support, introducing them to the Vespa community, and providing them with the ultimate Vespa experience.” Ramos ended.

Vespa Mall of Asia is located at SP 110-111, South Parking, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
