L-R-G Hayabusa: Hip-Hop culture, Suzuki style!

The fully bling'd L-R-G Hayabusa. Umm... er...

American Suzuki, in partnership with Lifted Research Group (L-R-G) and 2Wheel Tuner magazine, recently unveiled a customized 2008 Hayabusa at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show at the Long Beach Convention Center in California. (Whew! Yeah, that was from a press release…)

Designed by L-R-G and built by Custom Sportbike Concepts, 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,” say Suzuki. Special bits on the bike include a pearl-white paint scheme, custom windscreen, see-through bodypanels, custom exhaust, single-sided swingarm, and a rear section taken from the GSX-R1000.

The Hayabusa’s suspension has been heavily tweaked by Race Tech and the bike’s been fitted with ZR-rated Pirelli Diablo rubber. Brakes are from Beringer, and the front stoppers include four-piston radial mount calipers. And there’s even a rear-view camera system on the L-R-G machine…
