The Tokyo Motor Show has been throwing up all kinds of fascinating concept vehicles, but few have captured the imaginations and the eyeballs of attendees quite like Yamaha's Sports Ride Concept. This is an audaciously designed vehicle that is built around the high-tech iStream Carbon platform, giving the motorbike that the feel of an advanced and lightweight two-seater sports car.

This vehicle weighs only around 750 kg which should make it extremely speedy. As far as dimensions are concerned, the Sports Ride Concept can be compared to the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Ultimately, the Sports Ride Concept is a vehicle whose most important feature may be its light weight. The modern vehicle has to be lightweight, and the Sports Ride Concept proves that a light weight isn't merely a gimmick of any kind, but is actually a very important performance spec.
