    Check out this concept motorcycle just posted over at gizmodo.

    Yamaha Branded Deus Ex Machina Motorcycle Exoskeleton On Video, Looks Tron-esque

    Reminds me of something out of Akira or something. It would be a pretty sick ride when it converts down to high speed mode.

      honestly lol, that looks stupid. I think the only thing its good for is if you want to die quickier than you expected. Besides, 2 wheelers are classic XD

        QFT. Even a low speed impact would kill you with your head virtually in front of the wheels.

              If they ever bring back Arrested Development, Gob needs to switch from his Segway to this.

                I was reading about this on PopSci the other day - they said it hadn't been built yet, and was all CG...

                        I don't know how much I'd like riding in that for very long, you're hanging in it. Parts of your body would not enjoy it after a while. If it was reclined back a bit instead of leaning forward, maybe. Then part of your weight would be on the backrest. Looks cool, bit not sure about the feel of it.

                          Ok...thats not a motorcycle. Thats a segway with a training wheel. I would'nt ever ride that thing. Looks totally unsafe, worse thing you can do is shift your weight while moving like that. You'd think it would endanger the riders safety by changing the physics while moving.
