The 2007 Tokyo auto show is fast approaching, and Suzuki released information on all the new models and concepts it will have on display. Along with cars, Suzuki shows off some interesting new motorcycles.
Suzuki's first Kizashi concept car, a big, low-slung sedan, was shown at the 2007 Frankfurt auto show. Kizashi 2 is labeled as a crossover, suggesting that you can take any sedan, raise it up and fit it with big wheels, and suddenly it's in a new car segment.
This concept, intended as flexible transportation for urban environments, combines a mini-car and a personal mobility vehicle. Ostensibly you could drive to a park or particularly dense urban area, park the Suzuki Sharing Coach, then get into the PIXY and go where no car could fit. Suzuki also suggests PIXY can be used inside of buildings.
This Tonka toy-looking concept maximizes versatility by using different beds for different purposes. A camper bed would make it a recreational vehicle, while its Fashion bed lets you cart people around the city. It also has a bed intended for emergency rescue work.
This V-4 canopy-less motorcycle concept was designed to emphasize the similarities between riding and flying, hence the "Biplane" name. It also shows that we will have a lot of interesting motorcycle concepts to see at the Tokyo auto show.
While the Crosscage might just look like a particularly interesting motorcycle, it's powered by a motor which derives electricity from a fuel cell and a lithium-ion battery. Instead of a gas tank, this thing needs to carry a load of hydrogen.
Based on a concept shown at the 2001 Tokyo auto show, Suzuki calls the B-King its "flagship big naked bike". Similar to the Hayabusa, it's driven by a 1,340cc engine, and is also currently available in the U.S. and Europe.
