Coming courtesy of Frenchman Ludovic Lazareth and his studio, this new Yamaha YZF R1 custom provides with a glimpse into the future of the motor company. Aptly dubbed “Back to the Future,” the bike was original built to appear on Babylon A.D., starring Vin Diesel, almost a decade ago.

Upon bringing the motorcycle out of the archives, Lazareth has since transformed it into a futuristic variation of the road bike.

Built predominantly from carbon fiber, the “Back to the Future” still makes use of the original Yamaha YZF R1 frame, while implementing a reflective carbon fiber gas tank. Below you will find a pair of Triumph 955 IN 17-inch diameter wheels, as the swing arms have then been connected to TFX suspension. An upgraded floating link suspension system now provides for an even smother ride, and LED lights in turn vibrantly surround a single pipe exhaust, acting as the rear and brake lights.

Just days ago we showcased the world’s first fully-manned hoverbike.
