Yamaha YZF-R1 “Back to the Future” By Lazareth

Yamaha YZF-R1
Ludovic Lazareth has done it again, the French designer has modified a 1999 Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycle into this futuristic café racer. Originally customized a decade ago, the bike was built to appear on Babylon A.D., starring Vin Diesel, but recently Lazareth reimagined the retired movie star into a futuristic interpretation.

“You are not free if you can’t make what you want with your hands,” says Lazareth to BikeExif. “It’s not enough for me to go on the road with a bike to feel free—I feel free when I build a bike. I want to shape what I want… sorry for the purists!”

Built predominantly from carbon fiber, the “Back to the Future” features custom-made TFX Suspension shocks, a shorter tail, an extended exhaust with built-in LEDs, Brembo brakes, and an array of high-quality Rizoma parts.

What do you think of this ride ? Yay or Nay?
