very sweet!

It says "HUD indicators", but that leaves a little to the imagination:
- plug in unit to helmet? There is a small louvre in the front (facing the rider), I wonder if that is where onboard gauges are displayed?

when it says you "fly like a plane" again, not too clear. civvy/commercial planes have a yoke, but you turn it like a steering wheel non the less. Going to assume its a typical push/pull design, like a regular bike, but with vertical controls. The angle seems that it may be a bit cumbersome, for supporting body weight, but let's see.

Control system itself looks fly-by-wire, and there were some rumblings in the past about the GTS 1000, and other front hub controlled bikes, that there was a lack of feedback on the front end. (nothing alarming, but a lack of a direct "mechanica/linear feel" the input is registered, and you know whats going on, but not as tactile feeling.)

I would like to see rear hugger for the rear, but thats for rain duty, and I cant see anyone taking it out in the rain (other than me)

Nice to see another bike with outer rim mounted disk brakes though! look at circumference

kinda laughing about the comments the other guys are posting on the link... complaining that the front end is hard mounted "locked" in place.. and how can you steer, when a bike is meant to lean. lolz

I'd ride that bish! nice find!

Very good imagination. Will be interesting to see what it may inspire.

you too? i almost did as well.

It's a lovely machine, I pray something along the lines of this is production quality for the rider, and not the art collector. (or rich bachelor)

i dont like the yamaha. its very cool, but...maybe for the movies? sure a niker is exposed, but this one, leaves me.. not sure.

the honda, personally i dont like the hard edged style of it, but it still looks sleek, and wouldnt turn it down.

as for the "mono-cycle" i can see something like that being raced (like Venus Wars , racebikes/gunbikes)

i remember seeing something on TV and they were talking about the mono wheel bike, well the one wtih the tiny wheel in front, they said that gp riders spend so much time floating the front wheel that it would make sense to not have one. , crazy but whatever i welcome change.
the honda reminds me of a F-22 fighter jet, pretty cool i suppose, i would def sport it. the yamaha looks like a nifty grocery getter. haha.

So they are trying to convince us 2 wheels are too much?

Lets just walk... the accident rate may go down a hair.
