Kawasaki has unveiled the future of motorcycling by debuting the “J” Concept, at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show. The J is a three-wheeler electric vehicle motorcycle that returns zero emission.
Painted in Kawasaki's hallmark green shade with white and black graphics, the motorcycle points to the future of motorcycle industry.
Being an electrically powered machine, the J is hearted with battery management technology and GIGACELL high-capacity nickel-metal hydride battery.
The design itself is the beauty of the J. Does it look like Yamaha Tesseract? Can't exactly say no! Because, there are few similarities in the prototype.
The highlight of the J Concept is its switchable seating positions namely Sport Mode and Comfort Mode. Sport Mode is with a low-slung riding positions which enables fast driving even at corners, while the Comfort Mode is with a higher stance with a widened handle with more relaxed position.
It's neither a steering wheel nor a handlebar to control the machine, but two levers fixed on a couple of bars mounted from the front wheels.
It may require special license for the riders to ride the J.
The J is expected to come out of the concept to the production stage. But, it will certainly take a long time. May be by or after 2015 we may able to witness the future of motorcycle industry.
