From Motortrade's Facebook page.

Avid motorcycle rider Carlo Paalam is set to get a big bike from a major motorcycle dealer in the Philippines following his Olympic silver medal victory in the Tokyo Olympics on Saturday.

"Ngayon pa lang, panalo ka na sa'min Carlo! We're proud of you!
#MotortradePh #KailanganMOTOr" said Motortrade in its Facebook page.

"Congratulations CARLO! PAALAM, lumang motor, hello sa libre mong big bike."

Although Motortrade only showed a silhouette of the motorcycle they pledged, it appears to be a sports bike.

Before winning the silver in Tokyo, Paalam had been posting on Instagram some of the motorcycles he has ridden in the past.

He has photos on a Honda RS150 and a Yamaha Sniper.
