The scoot is owned by John Anisco, a business owner and also an online seller of motorcycle parts. John traces his fascination for motorcycles and cars way back in 2000 when he went together with his friend Ryan Benedict Capule to car shows.

It catalyzed his fascination for the Car Modifying Culture. He focused on his buy and sell business and that’s when he got to know Simon Miranda, a fellow car enthusiast. He saw Simon’s M3 Thai Concept and since then he was hooked. He started building Thai concept motorcycles or scoots with the help of his friend Renz Arriola. His fascination for Thai Concept grew even more so he started to consult Ryan Capule on how to build a proper Thai concept project.

The team behind the scoot are Simon Miranda of Wax Depot, Ryan Benedict Capule of RBC Garage/ Hampaslupa, Renz Jezreel Ariola of Renz MCPARTS, Nelson Pineda of Sonnet Paintworkz, Angelo Matias, Michael James Ong and Rob Tan.

“Yung pinaka satisfying aspect ng project na ito is kapag natatapos at nakikita kong nabubuo lahat ng pinaghihirapan ko. Hindi bale nang hindi manalo sa mga show, basta ang importante matuto pa lalo sa ginagawa at makilala ang iba pang mga magagaling na builders ng Thai Concept. Ang challenge na na-experience ko for this project is financial for my original parts and mostly the proper build of the concept, kung paano lilinisin kaya buti na lang andyan lagi si boss Ryan Benedict Capule para sa malinis na pagbuo ng motor,” John shared.


The team spared no expense to build a clean and impeccable Thai Concept scoot. They used top of the line THDM parts and accessories starting with the brake system which has Brembo radial master, Brembo Valentino Rossi for the master pump, Brembo Kohken Denka for the rear brake, Brembo Moto3 220mm rotor disc and Brembo 4pot CNC Caliper. The master radial pump and the Brembo Valentino Rossi master pump silver pin were really hard to find. For the suspension, they used high performance Ohlins 335mm rear shock. Then they used Morad Akront Valanced Norton rims, complete set of Titanium bolts and Lokal Recipe flat seat.

John expressed, “First I would like to thank to the Almighty God and my family na laging naka suporta sakin, ang mga kaibigan na nakakasama sa mga show, ang grupo ko na THDM Elites Zone Camanava, boss RBC GARAGE at grupo ng Hampaslupa na laging nandyan para sa akin, Simon Miranda of Wax Depot Total Detailing Solution para sa pag-aalaga ng motor ko, Ryan Benedict Capule of RBC Garage/Hampaslupa, Renz Jezreel Arriola of Renz MC Parts pag may pinabubuo ako sa motor ko and syempre sila Nelson Pineda of Sonnet Paintworkz, Angelo Matias, Michael James Ong of Boss Ong Thai Parts at kay Rob Tan na laging nakasuporta sa akin, Ninong Chicken at The Lokal Recipe, Valenzuela Thai Enthusiast, Jhay Simos, Jay De Guzman, Ron and Roz Keyser, Joeven Caliba, Glenn Garcia, Erwin Santiago, Lito Dela Luna of Goodboys Club. Thank you very much to InsideRACING Magazine for featuring my latest Thai Concept Project.
