Peugeot 118 Miles Per Gal, Leaning 3 Wheeled Fun Machine

hymotion3 01 Peugeot 118 Miles Per Gal, Leaning 3 Wheeled Fun Machine

Another Hybrid motorcycle type of vehicle, which just might appeal to the masses. This one comes from Peugeot. A fairly big automaker in Europe, has come up with the HYmotion3. This machine provides some protection from the weather with a glass canopy and also allows the drive to have some fun, with its ability to really lean in to the curves. The HYmotion3 is also extremely fuel efficient, recording 118 miles per gallon.

Here is the official press release:

Occupying a half-way house between the world of the scooter and the car, the HYmotion3 compressor is a highly original proposal designed to facilitate urban mobility. Attractive thanks to its dynamic, streamlined and futuristic style; it is an interesting concept combining numerous benefits (size, safety and comfort) with “HYmotion” hybrid/petrol technology. This new generation technology creates a three wheel drive vehicle, benefiting safety and driveability and combining economy with an environmentally-friendly specification (CO2 emissions of only 47 g/km in the combined cycle, zero in electric only mode).

Honda CB 750 Mega Block Hydrogen Motorcycle

hondahydrogen motorcycle concept 04 Honda CB 750 Mega Block Hydrogen Motorcycle

Designed by Igor Chak, here’s a futuristic motorcycle concept that adds a tinge of modern to the famous 1970s-80s Honda CB series. An eco-ride that definitely knows how to grab attention, his 2015 Honda CB 750 features more computers than our office and packs a 5-inch OLED multi-touch display that controls whatever needs to be controlled— from GPS to driving modes or diagnostics. The CB 750 concept features a carbon fiber, aluminum, and titanium unibody construction powered by a four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine. This powerhouse is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission with electronic lurch and traction control– enough to force one hell of an adrenaline rush when getting this little monster roaring. Anyone at Honda reading this? We hope so, we’d love to see this one get the greenlight.

Add Suzuki to the list of motorized vehicle companies trying to reduce carbon emissions. At the Tokyo Motor Show this year, Suzuki introduced its hydrogen-powered Crosscage concept motorcycle. A hydrogen fuel cell powers an electric engine mounted in the rear wheel and it has front and rear mono-shocks. The power delivery was designed by Intelligent Energy from the UK, but the bike design is definitely Suzuki. If you’re looking for specs, there aren’t any yet because neither Suzuki nor Intelligent Energy have issued a press release.

The HYmotion3 compressor concept is a means of transport with no affiliation to a particular type of vehicle. With its three wheels and its streamlined body, it is something of a missing link between two worlds which to date are quite distinct: that of the scooter and that of the car. With an electric motor in each of its two front wheels, coupled at the rear with a petrol engine, it brings into play very innovative hybrid technologies allowing each of its wheels to provide motive power.

In a world of intensifying urban traffic where everyone is trying to save time, where oil prices are skyrocketing and the environment is more than ever a priority, design departments are vying in ingenuity to develop solutions for the future.

Giving full rein to their creativity and expertise, two separate Peugeot teams converged on a similar idea and finally worked in tandem to develop a particularly original project: the HYmotion3 compressor.

CAF-E Hybrid SuperCharged Motorcycle by Tim Cameron

tim cameron caf e 01 CAF E Hybrid SuperCharged Motorcycle by Tim Cameron

This new CAF-E Motorcycle Hybrid design by Tim Cameron, is just a concept design, may soon go into production. The engine is mated with an electric motor via electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. This sends power to the rear wheels through the shaft drive.

The entire system is similar to a Hybrid Synergy you would find in your average Toyota Prius. But in this case, it’s pumping the bike with that extra power to drive it faster.

We will keep a look out for the real thing when it rolls out some day. But our guess is that, this thing is going to cost you dearly. Think high $80 to $90k. Which completely destroys and “G” bragging rights it might be after.
