Many people may had finally seen it at the Spring Motorcycle Show in 2022, so it may be just beginning to make inroads into the market.

The exterior itself is a stock 3rd generation Hayabusa including the pillion seat cover, which is a stock accessory, and the moist gold color is fully painted by Tommy Toys Design. The front left and right sides are covered with stickers from BABYFACE and other companies that support the rider.
