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!
