Majick In Machines

Yamaha have just released some shots of a concept motorcycle entitled Deux Ex Machina, translated from latin it means literally God out of Machine.
Created by Transportation Design student (rare course title..) Jake Loniak, the motorcycle looks like someone paid Ridley Scott to direct a remake of Street Hawk . The cycle also boasts a NanoPhosphate battery, thus ticking most of the eco-friendly boxes for all you Midnight Oil fans. Still, it manages 0-60mph in 3 seconds which is sick, and in true ergonomic fashion its controlled purely by the movements of your body. So hang up your handlebars and slip into something a little more biomechatronically comfortable because you could be riding into a steel sunset in just two shakes, literally.
