Lexus rolls out new hybrid concept and guess what? It’s an all-wheel drive bike


The newest Lexus is certainly a hybrid but not the kind that you would except.

It does have an electric motor but don't spend a lot of time looking for the missing two wheels and of course the gasoline powered engine.

This newest Lexus concept bike is an electric/human power hybrid that's powered by a 240-Watt electric motor and a 25.9-volt lithium battery pack…and of course the rider.

But here's the real interesting part…this Lexus concept bike is all-wheel drive, or to be more precise two-wheel drive.


According to Lexus:

"The Lexus Hybrid Bicycle has all-wheel drive, by means of a belt system.
It is equipped with an electric eight-speed Shimano internal gear
system, which references the sophisticated eight-speed shift-by-wire
automatic transmission of Lexus's LS 600h limousine. The carbon fibre
construction shares the same light-but-strong composite materials
technology that was used on Valentino Rossi's MotoGP-winning motorcycle."


The bike was introduced at the Tokyo Auto Show and is now in England as part of the company's sponsorship of the Great British Bike Ride.
