Video Yamaha Root revealed

Yamahas musical instrument division chops up an MT07

YAMAHA has released a video showing a working prototype of its √ ‘Root’ concept.

The bike started life as an MT-07 before it was modified by the designers from Yamaha Corporation (the bit that makes pianos, trumpets and the like) for the ‘Ninth Edition of the Biennale Internationale Design' display in Saint-Etienne, France.

It's been given a tiny fuel tank, had its bodywork stripped off, and has what looks like a leather surf board attached to the top.

Yamaha said: 'By taking the meters on the instrument panel off the motorcycle rider's view, the idea of the design is to enable him or her to be a part of the passing scenery.

'The form was created to flow from the seat to the fuel tank and was inspired by a horse motif that aims to give a sense of unity among people, nature, and the vehicle.'

If you enjoy the sight of a man brushing a leather seat, then you'll enjoy this video.
