The Yamaha Hecta is a future-forward update of the iconic Christiania Bike. The Christiania Bike is a Danish tricycle that has a large storage compartment mounted in the front. The storage compartment is much larger than a typical bicycle basket and can be used to hold everything from children to groceries.

The Yamaha Hecta was designed by James Harness and has the same sort of design as a Christiania Bike with a few 21st century updates thrown in. The Hecta has an electric motor mounted onto its rear wheel and a retractable cover for its cargo area. A computer has been built into the handlebars and comes complete with an RFID sensor and GPS navigation. Some designs like the Christiania Bike are timeless. Still, a modern update in the form of the Yamaha Hecta couldn't hurt. It might even encourage more people to cycle with its massive cargo hold and electric engine.
