Lexus F Sport Road Bike
Ebrahim K Kanoo is displaying the new Lexus F Sport Road Bike at their Lexus showroom in Sitra. This bike incorporates the philosophy of the LFA, Lexus' pinnacle model
, through a spectacular design that embodies the progressive styling and advanced technologies that is synonymous with the Lexus brand, with a potential to impress the top athletes.
To mark the completion of the 500 LFA production run, Lexus has created an advanced F SPORT Road Bike with the same CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic) used in the supercar body.
Ayman Shehadeh, Toyota and Lexus Marketing Manager at Ebrahim K. Kanoo, commented, "Bikes have been used as a marketing tool by many luxury brands Automakers. Now, Lexus has introduced this limited, stunning Road Bike, which takes from the supercar, LFA and brings the best technologies and innovations to the bike enthusiasts."
The Road Bike is equipped with a 22-speed shifting mechanism that uses a leading-edge electric control system, which enables the rider to shift gears easily. Moreover, the braking system provides an excellent braking feel which really takes riding to the next level. Thus, Lexus have succeeded in creating a bike which demonstrates not only speed, but also the ultimate performance and riding feel. Each bicycle is carefully assembled and checked by highly experienced Takumi technicians and painted to LFA standards.
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."
