Suzuki debuts custom L-R-G Hayabusa sportbike

Most of the country is freezing in the grip of winter weather. Now is the time to think of days when it will be warm enough to ride without worrying about frostbite.

These images of a fully customized 2008 Hayabusa sportbike bike next to a pool and surrounded by palm trees might take the chill away a little.

This bike was built by American Suzuki Motor Corporation in partnership with Lifted Research Group, better known as L-R-G, and 2Wheel Tuner magazine.

Yacht not included.


According to Suzuki...

Designed by L-R-G and built by Nick Anglada of Custom Sportbike Concepts (CSC) of Winter Garden, Fla., the L-R-G Hayabusa blends the panache of one of the hottest urban brands in fashion with the iconic personality of Suzuki’s fastest production motorcycle. The L-R-G Hayabusa will be featured on the January 2008 cover of 2Wheel Tuner.


“Beyond its well-deserved reputation for best-in-class performance, the popularity of the Suzuki Hayabusa can be attributed to the way it has long been embraced by the many facets of popular culture, including fashion, style, music and entertainment,” said Glenn Hansen, communications manager, ASMC, Motorcycle/ATV Division. “Suzuki’s relationship with L-R-G provides us with a not-to-be-missed opportunity to vividly illustrate our iconic sportbike’s storied connection to urban culture.”


The exterior look of the Hayabusa has been modified to catch the attention of both motorcycle enthusiasts and fashion aficionados. The L-R-G Hayabusa offers a unique Pearl White Powder paint scheme accented by Gator Customs-crafted lighted and see-through panels to help expose the custom engine and chassis work of the sportbike. Appropriately tattooed, the lifestyle-inspired
motorcycle features a number of striking L-R-G-branded accents, including a custom windscreen with L-R-G pattern by Sportech, stator cover with CNC engraved L-R-G logo and engraved Voodoo exhaust, all contributing to the sportbike’s eye-catching appearance. The custom Hayabusa also sports a laser engraved L-R-G patterned seat, combining style and overall riding comfort.
