Visordown gets first pictures of the new dual-fuel Yamaha hybrid
HOT NEWS and pictures fresh from Europe: Toyota and Yamaha will work together to build the first hybrid motorcycle.
Sources say, the machine will be powered by both a 20bhp internal combustion engine and an electric motor.
The water-cooled, 250cc horizontal single is capable of sending power to the rear wheel or the electric generator to keep the batteries topped up. Obviously, the system will be controlled by a sophisticated ECU.
Clever stuff! We can't wait to take one for a rip!

I'd love a bike with the smooth power delivery of my Prius! I'd love to see a more touring size machine though, a 250 just wont cut it even with a miniture hybrid sinergy drive system, Maybe 500cc and all that electric torque!!
