Default Anyone familiar with the Honda Airblade? (Tech question also inside)

Hey guys,

If you have ever seen photos or videos of Vietnam traffic, or have been here yourself, you know how crazy it is. I've been out here for about 2 months now and I'll be spending another 10 months here. I'm thinking about purchasing a motorbike and I've got the Honda Airblade in my sites. It's a little 110cc motorbike that has gained a lot of popularity in Thailand and Vietnam

Is anyone familiar with this bike? I would also like to mention that there are two versions of the Airblade. The version they sell in Vietnam regularly and the one they import form Thailand. The one from Thailand has 2 headlights where as the Vietnamese version has a 1-piece headlight. The shape and everything is exactly the same. I was thinkin about doing a 2-piece headlight conversion if I ever did get this bike cuz it just looks better. If I did decide to do that, would it be difficult to utilize the 2 headlight setup with the bike originally made to only support 1 headlight?

I'm confident that it would be a pretty straight forward install like a 99-00 civic front end conversion on a 96-98 civic (uh.. i guess haha), but the only thing that I thought might be a problem was the 2 headlights instead of one. What do you think?

Anyway, here are a couple of the photos.

The only scooters that will ever be cool are modded out rukus' and aprilias. I'm a bit biased but its true.

"yo, check it" you're a retard, but who gives a ****? jp

I'm in VN. That means no such thing as the ruckus, and the ruckus is completely impractical here. It would literally cost 4,000+ to bring one here. It costs less than 2,000 for a brand new airblade, which is a far superior bike whens peaking in terms of practicality and features. I love the ruckus, but I am not in America right now and that bike does not fly here. You'll just get real wet and laughed at hard.
