Yamaha's Deinonychus Electric Motorcycle
DEINONYCHUS (Special exhibition model: prototype)
Taking full advantage of the greater chassis design freedom afforded by an
in-wheel motor, this is Yamaha's proposal of a completely new type of
two-wheel-drive (2WD) EV (electric vehicle) with "Stretch & Shrink"
functions in the vertical and horizontal directions that brings a very
Yamaha joy of riding. In addition to the great drivability of the 2WD it
is possible to adjust not only the riding position but also the silhouette
of the chassis to fit the rider's body size, riding environment, road
surface conditions and personal preference. This is Yamaha's proposal of a
bike of the future that offers the kind of personal fit only possible with
an electric vehicle.
I suppose it would be great for getting about in the field, eh?
