A First Look at Yamaha's Futuristic Motoroid Motorcycle

The AI-powered bike will make its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Looking like it could have come straight out of Blade Runner 2049 is Yamaha‘s latest automotive concept: the Motoroid. Teased ahead of this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, the sleek bike boasts built-in artificial intelligence to allow the rider to more seamlessly interact with the motorcycle.
