First so far





I've seen the Morphus in person, def different. I have also seen a Japanese mag with a bunch of them pimped out already. Seems a great platform for that sort of thing.

Default Re: ElectroBoost

A hybrid motorcycle makes sense. It's a way to both boost power and increase fuel economy. With a supercharger or turbo, you get more power from smaller displacement, but you burn almost as much fuel as the larger engine anyway. Using an electric motor allows you to recapture some of that energy.

Or did somebody really build these things? I hope I'm high...(cue music from "Nice Dreams")

Okay, hybrid I can dig in a futuristic, sci-fi kind-of way. But the Limo concept does nothing for me.



Gotta luv auto/bike shows where they unveil concepts. Always entertaining if nothing else.

Maybe the bigger story from Gizmag is here:

All that's missing are some playing cards and some clothes pins.



Otherwize, re the super scoot, Japan Inc. might want to consider the EU's anti-MC legislation and go easy on the hi-powered stuff for awhile.

They blinged out the morphous ,and it just got here? Yow.Did anyone take a look at the deinonychous?[sounds like a dinosaur to me] .You are supposed to be able to stretch it and morph it somewhat to suit your riding needs?I,m thinking that these vehicles should be called something other than scooters or motorcycles .How about T.H.E.Y.S.U.C.K.U.S!Only kidding,just could not resist!]
