Honda Zoomer-X customisations – 2016 Bangkok Live
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Based on the all-new Honda Zoomer-X.
Three custom shops in Thailand – KD Shop, Sry Shop and X-Paint – received accolades in the Zoomer-X category of the Honda Motorbike Idea Challenge 2016 and their models were presented at the 37th Bangkok International Motor Show (2016 BIMS).
Each model has been customised with a new idea and hence they are wildly different from each other. However the 108 cc air-cooled single-cylinder fuel-injected engine that produces 8.35 PS at 8,000 rpm and 8.58 Nm at 6,500 rpm, mated to a CVT, is unaltered.

KD Shop has proposed the 108 cc Zoomer-X as an adventure model with a tall visor, LED spot lamps, off-road suspension comprising of inverted telescopic fork and gas-charged monoshock, upswept exhaust, dual-purpose tyres and an elaborate tubular steel guard system that doubles up as mounts for storage solutions.

Sry Shop has presented the Zoomer-X as a defence vehicle featuring a camouflage livery with a beige and olive green colour-combination, a tinted headlamp, brown seat upholstery, handlebar grips and wheel rims in the same colour, carrier/rack in place of the pillion seat, saddlebags, spoke-wheels, on-off road tyres, hand guard, headlamp guard and handlebar-end mirrors.

X-Paint has highlighted parts like the alloy wheels, and various tubular guards in fluorescent yellow and applied a digital camouflage livery on the body panels. The model is made a single-seater with a saddle that ends with a bucket-type cowl and the rear-end is fitted with a carrier that holds a spare-wheel. The X-Paint Zoomer-X features frame sliders all around the vehicle.
