Suzuki Crosscage, the Light Cyle is here


Disney has slated release of TRON: Legacy for December 2010, with the return of Tron we can also expect to see the light cycles in the new movie, the exciting two wheeled vehicles that race through the computer landscape. Suzuki has rolled out a concept vehicle, the Crosscage, at the 2010 Tokyo Motor Show that resembles a light cycle.

The Crosscage first shown in the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show is a futuristic look at the possibilities of motorcycle vehicles. By combining a high-performance secondary battery and a simple, compact, lightweight air-cooled fuel-cell system, the Crosscage hopes to achieve maximum power control. A fuel-cell unit from British specialist company Intelligent Energy enables quick power response with low fuel consumption. A lithium-ion battery assures safety as well as a low environmental burden.

The simplicity, compactness and lightness not only made this bike environment-friendly but also contribute to the sporty styling of the motorcycle. Can we expect to see this motorcycle released this year or is Suzuki teasing us with a concept that will never see the light of day?

We can only hope that this motorcycle makes its way into production, besides being a really nicely styled futuristic motorcycle this would be a zero-emission vehicle.  A zero-emissions vehicle, or ZEV, is a vehicle that emits no tailpipe pollutants from the onboard source of power.
