Kawasaki’s trike prototype morphs into a sports bike


The 43rd Tokyo Motor Show is now in full swing and one of the many head-turners in this year’s event in the motorcycle department is the Kawasaki J Three-Wheeler EV which looks like a homage to the Tron Light Cycle.

Kawasaki’s concept bike consists of three wheels, two on the front and a large one on the back. In “Comfort Mode”, the two wheels on the front are parted and the body is slightly elevated, resulting to an ATV-style trike.

On “Sports Mode”, however, the Kawasaki J Three-Wheeler EV transforms into a super cool sports bike by lowering the body and merging the two front wheels.

Sadly, Kawasaki has no plans of pushing their prototype to production. It’s merely being displayed to showcase the company’s new high-capacity NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) battery called GIGACELL.
