OMGHi2U Nissan Land Glider

Nissan Land Glider concept. (source with more images and text, etc.)

specs are light but a 100 mi+ range is claimed from its electric powertrain, and the steering is reputed to be steer by wire. oh yeah, and it leans. check out the video inlined above.

either that's really good CGI or this thing exists. hot damn. i want one. it would go well with my Piaggio MP3.

I heard it was carbon fiber, so it was very hard to damage.

The fact that it leans is sweet and the interior/controls look awesome. I'd like to take the doors off, put a rack on the back and go play a round of golf.

So, a motorcycle for people who are scared of two-wheeled transportation? And it automatically leans for you!
