Yamaha Gen Ryu concept
Although incredibly cool-looking, the Gen Ryu is about much more than aesthetics. Its 600cc engine is supplemented by a high-output electric motor, while the aluminum body decreases weight. For electronics, it has vehicle distance-warning sensors, cornering lighting, voice navigation, and a rearview camera. Noise-canceling speakers in the helmet make route guidance, music, and the hands-free cell phone system all audible over wind noise.
