The Yamaha Tesseract is a funky concept quad-bike which
first went on display at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show.
The Yamaha Tesseract is a hybrid powered vehicle, powered
by both a v-twin engine and an electric motor.
The suspension and steering mechanism of the Tesseract
is also worth mentioning. Yamaha have equipped the concept
with 'dual-scythe' suspension which allows the vehicle
to lean like a regular two-wheeled bike. When stationary
the extra pair of wheels and a dual arm-lock system keep
the Tesseract upright.
Apart from the technology, Yamaha have styled the Tesseract
to look rather startling. The semi-open wheel covers,
exposed suspension mechanism and linkages, chiseled styling
and praying mantis stance combine to give the Tesseract
a menacing, almost predatory appearance.
