Yamaha Bicycle Taxi Hybrid

yamaha_bicycle_taxi.JPGWe’ve told you plenty about electric-gasoline hybrids, but Gizmodo found one better: electric plus human pedal power instead of gas! Next year’s Tokyo World Expo won’t allow taxis between the pavilions, so Yamaha’s come up with this swoopy cycle to do the job. The supercool wedge shape gives the old-school rickshaw an update for the 21st century. Don’t know that you can buy one to start ferrying tourists round your own town, but if you like the idea of electro-assisted cycling, Bolwell’s got just the thing.
