Another wrecked Grom from our friends at MSX THAI in Thailand.
He said that it was wet out and the stock tires suck and he slid. Luckily his helmet saved him!

what tires do they have stock? If it's the same as my nsr50s tire selection (both dunlop and bridestones are awful in the wet but sticky as heck when dry) I can see that.

One thing to note (other than the crappy stock tires), is that it's the front of his helmet/visor that's scraped up. If you're just getting into riding, and are thinking of going with anything other than a full-face helmet, please reconsider. I saw a study that showed that most impacts on helmets are in the shield and chin bar area.

Yes a full face helmet is the way to go for sure

this one doesn't look as bad as the last one but considering the circumstances this being out in the public road it could have turned out way different.
