Lexus has launched its innovative Hybrid Bicycle Concept in the UK.
The bike, first seen at last year's Tokyo motor show, is being used to promote the firm's sponsorship of the four-day Great British Bike Ride charity event from Land's End to Twickenham.
The firm's 'L-finesse' design language has inspired the design of the frame, which is made from carbonfibre. The rider powers the rear wheel, while the 240w electric motor and 25.9V lithium-ion battery power the front wheel.
The electric motor can be switched between Eco and Power modes; an energy recuperation system helps recover energy lost under braking. The bike also uses an eight-speed Shimano internal gear system, which references the eight-speed shift-by-wire system found in the LS600h.
Just two of the concept bicycles have been made - there are currently no plans to put it into production.
