This modified Honda XRM 125 inspired by one of the iconic characters from Capcom’s, Mega Man Zero certainly brings fun memories during your teenage years playing in the arcade or favorite gaming center in the city.



Mega Man Zero is actually known as “Rockman Zero” in Japan. It is a series succeeding the Mega Man X storyline and a series in Capcom’s Mega Man video game franchise. The bike is owned by Isaac C. Saranillo, an Assistant Design Architect from Talisay City, Cebu. “I choose the theme Mega Man Zero or Black Magma Zero because the character “Zero” has a black version. He can emulate the powers of magma which when it comes to my bike, it is like heat attraction to people. Hence, I dubbed my bike as “BMZ”. I really like this game especially its character “Zero”. I really enjoyed playing it when I was a kid. Besides that, I am addicted to this stuff, I also looked at the features of this character that may match to my  accident which proved to be painful and a big setback to his project bike.



The modifications he had accumulated were greatly damaged not to mention that Isaac was also admitted in a hospital to recover from his injuries. He was right on the brink of giving up but his love and passion for motorcycles really put him on course to continue to pursue building his dream bike. Unlike other bike builders out there who have the advantage of manpower resources, work on this bike was only done of a 2-man team comprised of Isaac himself and his cousin Michael Joseph V. Duran who has been there since day 1. They both have a goal of participating in the biggest show bike competitions in the region. The bike is daily driven so there is always a risk of an accident but slowly but surely the tag team of Isaac and Michael were able to complete the project. Now the bike is actively participating in bike show competitions in the region and is steadily racking up trophies, a testament to the hard work and dedication they have invested in the bike.



The bike sports the Megaman Zero Black Magma full body panel decals which carry the theme. It also sports a wide array of Racing Boy aftermarket parts and accessories such as the S-line handlebar, V3 rear set, frame cover, rear fluid tank, front/rear brake hose, handle grip, chain tensioner, toe guard, V2 fork stabilizer, front/rear brake caliper, brake lever, lever pad, brake switch, emblem and bar ends. They also installed a wide assortment of THDM aftermarket parts such as the Bikers fluid tank cover, Bikers oil dipstick, Bikers chain guard, Koso left handle switch, Koso digital voltmeter with clock, Koso digital thermometer, Uma quick throttle, Uma carburetor, Orbr oil coiler, Orbr swing arm, Option 1 steering damper, Option 1 center nut, Koza front/rear flower hub, Koza front/ rear disc plates, Osaki chain, Osaki sprocket set, Osaki spokes, Yoko excellence front/rear rim wrapped with Vee Rubber tires, Rizoma lever guard and Rizoma V2 side mirror. For the suspension, Isaac and Michael installed TTGR rear shock and front outer tubes.



Isaac has this message to close our interview, “First, I would like to thank my cousin Michael Joseph V. Duran for being there always to help, support and assist me in modifying my bike. A large part for the success of this project is really credit to him. Thank you to Mr. Raffy A. Torres for offering your vehicle as transportation for my bike when we were joining competitions.
