This Gen-Ryu is a proposal for a "High-performance
Hybrid Motorcycle." Based on Yamaha's "Genesis"
design ideal and the new "G.E.N.I.C.H." ideal
reflecting the latest electronic control technologies,
this model combines the lightweight, compact YZF-R6 600cc
engine and a high output, high efficiency electric motor.
It is designed to offer both the joy of handling of a
motorcycle and the comfort and carrying capacity of a
scooter. Features like the lightweight aluminum CF die-cast
body with optimized rigidity balance, large diameter wheels
and long wheelbase give this model running performance
and handling similar to a 1,000cc class machine.
Furthermore, as Yamaha H.M.I. (Human Machine Interface)
systems, this model adopts ASV (Advanced Safety Vehicle)
features aimed at preventative safety functions and smart
functions for increasing rider comfort. The ASV functions
include (1) a vehicle-vehicle distance warning system
using the latest communications technologies, (2) a cornering
light system that improves nighttime vision when turning
at intersections and curves, The smart functions include
(1) a noise canceling system that greatly reduces wind
noise, (2) a short wave tandem intercom system, (3) voice
navigation function, (4) music player and hand-free cell
phone function and (5) rear view monitoring system using
a CCD camera and LCD display.
