Lazareth’s Unique FZR Compressor Prototype

This futuristic bike was designed and built for Mathhieu Kasovitz’s “Babylon A.D.” movie, released in 2008, with Vin Diesel as protagonist. The sci-fi screenplay needed an out-of-the-ordinary vehicle to be driven by Diesel, thus the Yamaha FZR Compressor Prototype was born.

Frenchman Ludovic Lazareth has a factory in Annecy-le-Vieux, near the Swiss border, and turns out an extraordinary variety of vehicles. These include cars as well as motorcycles, and eye-popping quad bikes and snowmobiles.

Lazareth took care of designing the motorcycle, using a Yamaha FZR 1000 as blueprint. The original bike got almost completely modified. The suspension and the whole frame were lowered, and among the many additions it now features a single arm to the rear.

Apart from the extensive chassis modifications and radical new styling, Lazareth bolts a supercharger from a Mini Cooper S on to the 4-cylinder engine that assures a pressure of 1 bar, boosting the bike’s performances.

Due to the new design and performance improvements, the motorcycle has now a stronger persona and costs around $59,000 or €45,000. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BIKEEXIF | LUXATIC]
