Whether or not we’re speaking concerning the Yamaha MT-10 or Kawasaki Z900, at the moment’s beauty conventions closely depend on futuristic, angular bodywork. Apparently, Reza Hussain Customs (RH Customs) acquired that memo and pushed the Autobot aesthetic to the Nth diploma.

Together with Optimus Prime and Megatron, Bumblebee has turn into a fan-favorite Transformer through the years. The character’s recognition has solely elevated up to now fifteen years because of Michael Bay’s Transformer live-action movie franchise.
