Alex Paguio, a machine operator in South Korea, owns this MotoGP team Petronas Yamaha SRT-inspired Yamaha Sniper 150. Hailing from Floridablanca, Pampanga, Alex started to modify bikes in 2019. He saw Sniper motorcycles from different countries such as Malaysia, Vietnam and also here in the Philippines and that inspired him to create his own design in which he incorporated big bike motor parts. After seeing the race bike of Franco Morbidelli, he became a fan of him and Alex decided to make Petronas Yamaha SRT the theme of his modified bike which he named Heroine.

“My experience in building a bike is really amazing. It tests my patience and I need to prepare the budget in building and completing my own concept and design. There were times I got discouraged but that didn’t stop me to pursue my dream concept in building this bike. It took me more than a year to complete this project. It took long because most of the parts were bought outside the country. It’s a bit pricey but I can say it’s rewarding and fulfilling. This motorcycle is recognized in other countries such as Malaysia and Vietnam,” shared Alex.

It’s a passion for Alex and one of his dreams is join the big events and motor shows and be recognized. It’s rewarding and fulfilling for him; a feeling that money can’t buy.

As of now, Alex is working on other project bikes. To fellow builders and enthusiasts who want to build their own concept and ideas, Alex encourages them to don’t stop and be patient. He also advises them to create a draft of their concept and make sure the parts are available so it won’t take so long and there will be less hassle in their projects.

“I would like to thank to the people who helped me built this project bike especially my handler and mechanic Harold Labrador. Salute to you bro. You are really great with amazing talent! Thank you to the builder of my Pro Arm, Miko Person, and to my painter and graphic designer JP Roque.
