That's Rin. As you might imagine, her main job in the series is gainaxing.
This show is comedy edging towards farce. But it's mainly fan service. Lots of bike fan service as well as paraphenalia fan service. There are corporate logos all over the place, real ones, and lots of pictures of motorcycles. Plus the girls, all but one of whom are nicely built.
So let's introduce some characters.
Hane, on the left, seems to be the audience viewpoint character. She's a bit of a ditz. Onsa, with the black hair, is snide and flat chested. She seems to enjoy baiting Rin, whom you've already met. I think it's only a matter of time before Rin starts making fun of Onsa's chest in retaliation.
Lime is the Motorcycle Club president. She never speaks and never takes her helmet off, at least so far. The one time she had something substantive to say, she held up a sign. The series web site doesn't list a seiyuu for her.
Hijiri is a rich girl, as yet too young to get a driver's license.
So as to what they ride? Hane rides a Honda, Onsa rides a Yamaha trail bike, Lime has a Kawasaki, Rin rides Suzuki, and Hijiri has a Ducati. Her butler drives it and she rides in a side car.
There's a lot of silliness and quite a lot of mild fan service (of several kinds) and a ridiculous amount of product placement. I bet the show is already profitable due to corporate sponsorship payments from 50+ companies.
It will unquestionably be worth plundering when it's finished but I'm not sure I'll be able to watch it as its rolling out. Having said that, I did enjoy the first episode and I'll watch the next one.

That thought had passed through my mind, too. I wonder if anybody actually does that, seems like it ought to work. No, a search says it just results in the bra straps putting twice the pressure on the shoulders...
Doing a google search, it looks just like the airbag, so I guess that's it.

And we have a winner! Our first Rin fan-art!

...and some very awkward looks. And confused drunken fondling. And hard-to-reach clasps. (Guess they'd be front-hooks.)
Nothing stopping the counterweight being a separate garment that sits on the hips, though, like a framed hiking backpack.
Wait, that's about where the biological counterweight sits... this "evolution" guy knows what he's doing. As soon as we're done learning how to walk on our hind legs...
