Lexus looks set to expand its range of hybrid vehicles in a manner which almost nobody saw coming. Its next concept project, bizarrely enough, is a hybrid bicycle. Say what now?

Don't adjust your LCDs; this really is a two-wheeled Lexus. But although it's a hybrid, it doesn't rely on a combination of electric and petrol power.
