Young engineers have to make 10 mini-motorcycles to demonstrate their talent.9332765a66993f4f0ef.jpg

A group of freshly joined trainee has got an excellent opportunity. They had a task to create 10 replicas of iconic motorcycles that made Honda the brand it is today. And they had to do this using a Delta minibike as the base bike.

The slogan was: “Make the small bikes and we’ll know if you can make the big ones”.3344755a6699488c823.jpg

In order to prove their credibility, Honda has developed a challenging methodology to figure out the potential of new manpower, giving them a simple task of “模 刻” (Mó kè) - the art of sculpting carved mold.

In the case of copies, the same procedure is applied. In fact, the trainees had to start their work from scratch because of differences in size. In the process, young engineers use the same techniques: conceptual sketches, projects in the software for 3D design, a clay model, production of a final work.
