Yamaha has revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show the SPORTS RIDE CONCEPT, that is follow-up to the 2013 MOTIV.e concept, but in a much sportier package compared to the previous city car concept.
The concept weighs just 750 kg and measures 3,900mm in lenght, 1,720mm in width and 1,170mm in height.
The two-seater concept is designed to offer a driver-machine relationship similar to a motorcycle and uses an adaptation of the iStream manufacturing system developed by Gordon Murray.
Inspiration for the design came from the artistic style of Elementarism, featuring a driver-focused cockpit with door straps instead of regular handles as a way to cut weight even further.
It took just 5 months to bring the concept to life, featuring plenty of carbon fibre to achieve that impressive low weight.
Engine specs unfortunately were not released, but it is expected power could come from a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine.
