The Toilet Bike Neo is a three-wheeled motorcycle with a 250cc engine. Even though it’s seat is constructed out of a toilet, TOTO is quick to point out that the motorcycle does not run on human waste. The poop-powered motorcycle can travel up to 180 miles on a tank of animal waste. Last year, TOTO took the bike on a 876-mile journey across Japan.

Kevin Fujita, a TOTO spokesman stated, “We hope to raise awareness among customers about our green campaign through development of environmentally-friendly products such as water-saving shower heads and water-saving toilets.”

There are currently no plans to produce the Toilet Bike Neo for the commercial market.
