This Yamaha Sniper King 150 show bike was built by a team based in Antipolo, Rizal. The bike is owned by Aaron Alexander Soriano and it was built in collaboration with Nonong Motor Parts headed by Raul Nonong Caballero. It was custom hydro painted by H2O Philippines headed by Pete Allan Magat.

The bike sports a wide array of Racing Boy aftermarket parts such as rear set, swing arm, hand grips, sprocket cover and rear brake master cylinder. The bike has genuine Heng engine and body bolts. The team installed Asio mag wheels wrapped in dual Pirelli tires at the rear paired with a custom-machined belt drive system. The team also upgraded the brake system with Brembo brake calipers, Brembo master cylinder, Brembo brake levers and Mody5 front and rear disk rotors. The team installed KOU high-performance racing exhaust from Thailand. To add more detail, they also installed Benen tow hook, carbon fiber signal light and tail light protectors, Kappa storage box, transparent clutch cover, Yamaha alloy engine and radiator guard, LED fog lamp and custom-made fiberglass seat. The whole Yellow Mamba theme was carried out with custom hydro paint.

Like any bike modifier actively engaged in motor show competitions, Aaron started as a spectator. But the more he watched, it made him even more fascinated with the art of modifying motorcycles. “My Yellow Mamba started out as Decal Concept bike. I always emphasized the importance of detail to my overall theme. When I started out in the world of show bike competition, it was anything but easy. Building the bike is a challenge in itself but hearing negative comments about my build was really difficult. But I never gave up, I kept thinking of ways of improving my bike until I met the individuals who have been instrumental in my success as a show bike competitor. Through a friend, I met Pete Allan Magat of H2O Philippines and they certainly took my theme to a whole new level with their custom hydro paint. I also had a custom fiberglass seat made and it was also hydro painted with carbon fiber details. I also had my aftermarket parts custom-chromed by Raigo Chrome. Then I met Raul Nonong Caballero of Nonong Motor Parts and with his help, we started to push our limits and really be aggressive in pursuing difficult mods for our bike. First of which is the dual tire fitted to the rear mag wheel and we converted it from chain drive to belt drive. These mods were not easy but we are proud to say that this bike is fully functional,” narrated Aaron.

“Simula ng ma-modify ko ng maayos ang motor ko, doon na ako nakakuha ng awards at nagkaroon din ako ng kompyansa na dumayo sa ibat-ibang lugar upang lumahok sa ibat-ibang motor shows. Nakaka- overwhelm and lahat ng pagod, hirap, puyat at sakripisyo ay nasusuklian ng hindi maipaliwanag na kasiyahan. Sa likod ng aking mga nakamit na tagumpay, ako’y lubos na nagpapasalamat sa mga taong tumulong sa akin – sa family and friends ko, kay Mr. Raul Nonong Caballero (Nonong Motor Parts), Mr. Pete Allan Magat (H2O Philippines), Puma De Guzman (Mini Puma), Louie Santos (Decals Concept), Mikki Torres, sa Team Yellow Mamba, Raigo Chrome, Royal Skull, Pink Patotoy at kay Alvin Surnit. Muli, ako’y lubos na nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng inyong naitulong. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa InsideRACING Magazine sa pag-feature ng bike ko. To God be the glory,” Aaron shared.
