Gamma Powered Suzuki Raider 150 from Talisay Cebu

By: Arnel B. Santos-Ynigo

For this week we are featuring a Hulk inspired Suzuki Raider 150. The team behind it has done 
such a superb job of bringing the theme to life you could have sworn the bike was forged from Gamma Rays that created one of the most popular superheroes ever created "The Hulk".

The Hulk is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. 
The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby back in 1962, the character possesses virtually 
unlimited superhuman strength and invulnerability, attributes that grow more potent the angrier he becomes. Hulk is the alter ego of Bruce Banner, a socially withdrawn and emotionally reserved physicist who physically transforms into the Hulk when under emotional stress. No wonder the character has grown to such popularity because of the constant conflict the character has to face.

The bike is owned by Ranniel Vallecera Mellejor a businessman originally from Catigbian, Bohol. 
But now based in Talisay, Cebu. He wanted his bike to stand out, he wanted it to project strength 
and toughness. So Ranniel decided to adapt the Hulk theme. So he worked with Cocoi Franco Jagape with the airbrush art for the body and from there they used accessories that would complement
the overall theme.  

Ranniel stripped the bike down with the help of his cousins Joseph, Herbert,and Baduy. From there 
they had the chassis painted by Shino Kevin. While Cocoi was busy working on the body with the airbrush work they were already working on the procurement and installation of the parts and accessories. They opted to use only the best aftermarket parts. The team installed Racing Boy Handle grips, Rearset, Fork stabilizer, frame cover, clutch and Brake lever, fluid tank cover, caliper guard, chain guard and chain tensioner. They also upgraded the front suspension to TTGR shocks. To improve the bikes performance they used 32mm SWR Flat slide carburetor. They also used WorkTech high performance swing arm. The team also used Option1 parts such as the Chainset, Steering damper and side mirrors. They also used THDM parts such as Tupaknam Duo Cap and Front shock clip.

To make the bike more aggressive they used Uma quick throttle and Namban Racing Pipe V7. They also used Noiwatdan flat seat to keep the weight down. The rest of the original parts were chromed up to really emphasize and complement the artwork on the bikes body panels. The engine was kept stock but they tweaked the intake to give the bike more kick. 

The bike has been making waves in the local bike shows in Cebu but Ranniel wants to expand his horizons and is planning of competing in bike shows all over the Visayas area. Their creation has been racking up trophies and proved to be a crowd favorite especially for children who are very fond of super heroes.
