Yamaha Sports Ride Concept— Tokyo
The company best known for building motorcycles introduced a car at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show. The Sports Ride Concept looks like a baby supercar and features a lightweight, rigid chassis with optimized weight distribution. The concept fulfills the idea of building a sports car with the direct-connection experience so elemental to motorcycles. High-quality materials are evident in the 2-seat cabin that Yamaha says would be for everyday use. No powertrain details were discussed; naturally, we’d expect a small, lightweight high-output powertrain were Yamaha to decide to go further with this concept.
