Electric in-wheel motors not only help improve the efficiency of this bike; they also lower the center of gravity, improving handling and performance. We can’t wait to see if Honda will actually bring this green bike to market. It’s not out of the question, since the forward-thinking automaker spends heavily on R&D for new and efficient technologies. Click through our photo gallery to ogle the concept while you wait.

    @lazyreader – lol, thats the first thing that came to my mind too, it looks like Kaneda’s bike just in white.

    I thought that it was a cordless drill at first….

  15. Velocir May 26, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    Um…not Star Wars, or Akira. This is clearly a copy of Cloud’s Fenrir

  16. lazyreader May 26, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Looks more like a white version of the bike from “Akira”
