Looks like recording artist Pharrell isn't the only one implementing his clothing line aesthetics into motorbikes. Rapper Tip 'T.I.' Harris revealed the customized Yamaha YZF-R1 at the Magic Tradeshow in Las Vegas last week. The motorbike was the result of the collaboration between custom sport bike builder and designer, Rob Uecker, from Voodoo Industries and T.I.'s AKOO Clothing design team.
Many industries have collaborated with fashion and now the automotive industry has joined the race.
"When I look at the AKOO brand I see classic, rugged American styling, which compliments the R1's aggressive street stature," Rob Uecker told Black Voices.
Yamaha has worked closely with T.I. to tailor the right design true to T.I.'s image. The bike is officially dubbed "AKOO YZF-R1″ brings AKOO's masculine style into Yamaha's rugged yet modern street-king look. The bike is retailed for a whopping $80,000, which is more expensive than a home in some regions.
