New Motorcycle Concept Is Powered By Animal Droppings

New Motorcycle Concept Is Powered By Animal Droppings

The Toliet Bike Neo gives newfound use to animal droppings. Livestock wastes are the actual power source for the motorcycle. A great way around our dependency of fossil fuels. 

After three years of research, the Neo recently made its official debut in Japan. Engineers developed a way to covert wastes and water to methane gas and the the gas is converted into bio-gas. I wonder if the exhaust leaves a scent while in motion. For one month the Neo was used around Japan and travelled for a total of 870 miles. No need to hold your nose just yet, developer TOTO have no plans to mass produce the bike, it's just a fancy science experiment I guess.
