The Japanese are known for their fascinating ability to drift, their amazing performance-altering designs, and for having some of the most die-hard fans ever.

What they’re not known for, especially in the West, is trikes.

Which is why when I did my research on the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon (which recently wrapped up), I was amused to come across this Ferrari-styled F1 trike, complete with the Rossa Corsa paint and Ferrari decals.

The bike is actually a Suzuki Hayabusa, super stylized by Johnny Yokosuka and company. Trike Japan, which specializes in converting normal motorcycles into trikes, debuted the trike as a showcase of their first Hayabusa conversion. 

While not much is known mechanically about the bike, it is known that the bike retains the original motor, the Hayabusa 13oocc motor.
