This twisted logic is the basis for one of the oddest custom builds to surface on the internet yet: a GSX1300R Hayabusa dirt trike.

Unofficial Ferrari trike powered by Hayabusa engine

Dan Aspel, 18 October 2010 13:56

This Ferrari F1-themed trike was originally a Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa. The mechanics are largely unchanged, the work being focussed on the red, decal-laquered frame and rear wheels, turning the standard supersports bike into a unique tribute to the Italian F1 team. The trike was built by Japanese custom guru Yokosuka Johnny, who counts a Honda 1800GL Goldwing amongst his previous ...
