Take a step into the future with Yamaha’s hyper-futuristic motorcycle – aptly named Motoroid. Yamaha has dished out several concepts recently, excitably being released at the Tokyo Motor Show. I believe this concept easily takes the gold medal for being the most futuristic concept yet.
The Motoroid, like many futuristic concept vehicles, is complete with an AI system, but not just any AI system, Motoroid’s AI can recognize its owner and even go as far as interacting with the user in different methods similar to a living creature would – freaky. This comes as no surprise when Yamaha also boasts the ability to evoke the experience of ‘Kando’ for the rider – the Japanese philosophy which simultaneously inspires a deep satisfaction, appreciation, admiration and emotional impression.
An interesting aesthetic choice for the Motoroid is the speed racer look, which gives it an edgy, durable feel. Another aspect of this concept that catches the eye is the battery cylinders located behind the front tire – indicating how Yamaha envision the future of two-wheel transport. The removal of any windshield, the low lying handlebars and the lower back brace for the bike all add exciting details which make this bike look and feel like something straight out of Blade Runner – reinforcing just how cool Yamaha continues to be.
