The newest Lexus is certainly a hybrid but not the kind that you would except.
It does have an electric motor but don't spend a lot of time looking for the missing two wheels and of course the gasoline powered engine.
This newest Lexus concept bike is an electric/human power hybrid that's powered by a 240-Watt electric motor and a 25.9-volt lithium battery pack...and of course the rider.

But here's the real interesting part...this Lexus concept bike is all-wheel drive, or to be more precise two-wheel drive.
According to Lexus:
"The Lexus Hybrid Bicycle has all-wheel drive, by means of a belt system. It is equipped with an electric eight-speed Shimano internal gear system, which references the sophisticated eight-speed shift-by-wire automatic transmission of Lexus's LS 600h limousine. The carbon fibre construction shares the same light-but-strong composite materials technology that was used on Valentino Rossi's MotoGP-winning motorcycle."
The bike was introduced at the Tokyo Auto Show and is now in England as part of the company's sponsorship of the Great British Bike Ride.
