Lexus Shifts Gears with $10,000 Carbon-Fiber Bicycle

 Lexus Shifts Gears with $10,000 Carbon-Fiber Bicycle

Although the components including the frame, forks, seat, seat post, handlebars, wheels and cranks are manufactured off site in Taiwan, they were designed by Lexus engineers and are hand-lacquered and assembled at the LFA Works. It also has a 22-speed gear system operated by an electronic derailleur with F1-style paddle shifters.

Only 100 examples will be made, of which 35 have been sold-to-date. Most are expected to stay in Japan, with just one destined for Canada and two for the United States. Each bike costs approximately $10,000, which makes it one of the more expensive bicycles on the market, but still a far cry from the $375,000 that the last vehicle produced at that factory commanded.
