Ludovic Lazareth’s Custom-Made Yamaha R1 Street Edition

Yamaha YZF-R1 is a moniker that appeals to a motorcycle enthusiast’s sense of crisp styling and specialised superbike attitude. The usual R1 in this case has undergone surgery by French artist Ludovic Lazareth, making it a completely unique example. This appears to be pretty unique and is now able to be added to a futuristic list of motorcycles from around the world. When he was unburdened by obligations to customers and other parties, he produced this.

Although it may appear to be brand-new, the motorcycle is actually a 1999 Yamaha YZF-R1 that was adapted for Vin Diesel’s Babylon AD ten years ago. The original R1’s front end was surrendered to another project, thus this one received a brand-new, specially made front end for added excitement. The Yamaha R1 has a typical front end, but this machine has a swing-arm layout that makes it stand out from the competition.

The wheels of the Triumph Daytona 955 are mounted on the motorcycle’s front and back ends. Now, both extremities of it have single-sided swing arms. TFX Suspension developed the motorcycle’s shocks specifically for it. The modified Yamaha R1 Street’s exhaust now resembles a significant component of the frame, and its dead end is visible studded with LED lights that serve as the vehicle’s taillight.

The gasoline tank’s outside cover is crafted from carbon fibre, while the fuel tank itself is built of aluminium. The belly pan, tail portion, and the majority of the body panels all display the same material. The Yamaha R1 comes equipped with Brembo brakes, and Lazareth even added Acewell instrumentation, bar end mirrors, and drag bars to the front end. The motorcycle is reportedly $53,000 in cost.
