Guess what Lexus unveiled (Hint: Not a car)

Visitors to Al-Futtaim Motors’ Lexus showroom in Dubai Festival City are in for a surprise

Visitors to Al Futtaim Motors’ Lexus showroom in Dubai Festival City are in for a surprise. At the showroom, global carmaker Lexus is displaying its latest offering, created to mark the end of the 500-unit production run of the LFA, Lexus’ legendary supercar.

But the new stallion to roll out of Lexus’ stable is not a car – not a 4X4 either, and not a truck, coupe, sedan… or any other variant of a four-wheeled vehicle. It is, indeed, a bike.

Enthusiasts in the UAE will have the chance to witness Lexus’ commitment to the quest for perfection and optimal performance, with the display of an exclusive F Sport Road Bike at the DFC showroom.

Lexus says the F Sport Road Bike was created to mark the end of the 500-unit production run of the LFA, Lexus’ legendary supercar. Lexus has developed this advanced F Sport Road Bike with the same Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic used in the supercar body.

This bike was constructed by Lexus Takumi, skilled craftsmen who create the highest quality products, and it incorporates the philosophy of the LFA through a spectacular design that embodies the supreme craftsmanship, progressive styling, and advanced technologies synonymous with the Lexus brand.

According to Tsukasa Yoshimoto, Japan's leading bicycle writer: “The Lexus F Sport frame design was based on comfort geometry, which focuses on reducing fatigue, and makes full use of the excellent flexibility and vibration damping characteristics of the carbon material.

“The moderate smoothness of the pedaling feel, which is the core of riding performance, feels great and enables the rider to use less leg strength when riding. Additionally, the excellent ride comfort helps to reduce the fatigue that tends to build up in the later stages of a long ride. The Dura-Ace Di2 enables the rider to shift easily and freely for virtually stress-free operation. Furthermore, F Sport pursues true riding comfort, enabling the rider to really enjoy the speed and exhilaration of a road bike."

Equipped with a 22-speed shifting mechanism that uses a leading-edge electric control system, the exclusive bike enables riders to shift gears easily. Moreover, the braking system provides an excellent braking feel which really takes riding to the next level.

In order to ensure the highest level of Lexus quality through premium parts and materials, the F Sport Road Bike was produced in the same workshop which created the LFA. In particular, the frame paintwork is polished to LFA standards, pursuing a quality finish far superior to normal industry standards.
