It seems, that this month has been dedicated to Yamaha. But this time the bike is completely different from any of its earlier releases, actually it is yet a concept bike.

Recently an eco-friendly gyroscopic bike by a 15 year kid, became quite famous around the Internet (websites) and even among many newspapers around the world. This bike is something similar to that bike as it also doesn't require petrol or any fuel to work, but it works on electricity.
The bike simply had to be worn by the rider. The Yamaha-branded Deus Ex concept is worn as an exo-skeleton with seven artificial vertebra as well as the pneumatically attached helmet. The motor is in-wheel, powered by ultra-capacitors and doped nano-phoshpate batteries similar to those already used in hybrids. It's also capable of 0–60mph in three seconds. Top speed is 75mph with a recharge time of 15 minutes and cycle time of one hour.

Deus ex machina literally means "god from a machine". Jake Loniak, a student of Art Center Pasadena has crammed the combination of motorcycle and tech-skeleton into an awesome looking Yamaha branded Deus Ex Machina. Jake has beyond his wild imagination to design this concept. The vehicle will be powered by ultra-capacitors and doped nano-phoshpate batteries, and it is controlled using 36 pneumatic muscles with two linear actuators set along a spine consisting of seven artificial vertebrae. Even the helmet is pneumatically attached.
