Yamaha is set to debut a new pseudo-125cc fuel cell-powered scooter at this week’s International Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exposition in Yokohama. The scooter has a secondary Lithium Ion battery that charges from the main Hydrogen fuel cell.
If Yamaha puts the little bike into production, it would be the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle on the planet. Currently, Fuel Cell technology is not efficient enough for full-sized automobiles, but by proving the technology can work at a slightly smaller scale, that could change.
Now all we need is some Hydrogen-powered motorcycles for some full on Nerdrophenia Tom-Foolery, with soundtrack courtesy of The Who.
