    Has anyone had any first hand experience here with Ace motorcycles from Subic ? There's not a lot of information on them it seems, like reviews and stuff, the bikes themselves look outwardly fine, but there's more to a book than just its cover.

    You may be in the wrong forum for that. That's quite a ways away. There are probably better options nearby. What type of bike are you looking for?

    As per the chart at the bottom, the 650SE ran in production from 1995-2015 replaced by the 650S apparently.

    For a real big bike you might visit the special showroom of Duek Sam the Honda dealer in Daro, Dumaguete.

    Try Drei Bikes in Cebu since you are looking for a used bike. He may be able to find one or buy one at auction if he doesn't have one in stock. He does all the proper import paperwork for the bikes he buys from overseas.

    That's fine but the bike you mentioned was discontinued 4 years ago according to a post here. If a dealership had a "new" 4 year old bike sitting in the show room I would be looking for a serious discount (basically I would only pay what it would sell for in mint condition used from the dealership.) That's just me though. Up to you diba.
