Looks like Pharrell isn’t the only one implementing his clothing line aesthetics into motorbikes, and we smell a new trend coming up. Rapper T.I. unveiled the customized Yamaha YZF-R1 at the Magic Tradeshow in Las Vegas last week. The motorbike was the result of the collaboration between custom sportbike designer and builder, Rob Uecker, from Voodoo Industries and T.I.’s AKOO Clothing design team.
The bike is officially dubbed “AKOO YZF-R1″ brings AKOO’s masculine style into Yamaha’s rugged yet modern street-king look. Ralph Reynolds, AKOO Principal, stated:
“Rob Uecker creates custom inspired creations, each one better than the last. The AKOO Yamaha R1 is truly one of these inspired creations. From a design, power, and style perspective the combining of our two different brands, VooDoo Industries’ magic has brought about truly inspired beauty. Rob being the artist, the Yamaha R1 being the medium, and AKOO being the inspiration, we are fortunate and extremely appreciative to have been involved with this project.”
