Lexus has announced plans to bring the Hybrid Bicycle concept to the Great British Bike Ride.
Originally unveiled at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, the bike features a 240W electric motor and a 25.9V lithium-ion battery. The motor has two modes (Eco and Power) and the battery is recharged by regenerative braking. Other goodies include all-wheel drive, an electric eight-speed transmission, and carbon fiber construction.
While we're not sure what the point is, Lexus has just made the Honda U3-X a lot more attractive.
