Call us jaded, but these days, there are few vehicles at the average auto show that can stop us in our tracks. Yamaha has proven there's still something to get excited about on the show floor with its Y125 Moegi. The design study has all of the grace and elegance of a bicycle with the all important element of internal combustion lifted from a small-displacement motorcycle. The 125cc fuel-injected single cylinder engine likely has just enough power to whirr you around town.

Yamaha didn't release any actual figures for horsepower or torque, but we do know the bike weighs a scant 176 pounds soaking wet. It wouldn't take much to propel the machine through the city streets. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Yamaha has any plans to bring the sexy contraption to market. That's a shame, but it's at least good to know that the company's designers are throwing an eye towards elegance. Hit the jump to check out a video of the Y125 doing what it does best.

      Oh man, that's just *gorgeous*. Hidden rear shock-tunnel, internal cable/hose routing, carbon fiber (?) main triangle, soft white paint, retro feel, etc. Plus with those small wheels/tires, I'd bet that it accelerates pretty well too (not motorcycle fast, but quickly enough for most people). My *only* complaint would be that it doesn't fall under the typical "scooter" guidelines with regards to US states laws. Here in Madison, WI scooters are very popular because riders don't need a separate motorcycle license and they can be parked on the sidewalk like bicycles as opposed to motorcycles which have to pay car pricing when parked in parking garages. But overall, man that thing looks sweet...

      Okay. So clearly the bike is not a runner. No one even so much as threw a leg over it in the video.

      Cool machine. Some ironic lyrics in the second song on the video there.

        Dan, do you think the real 99% (like the poor in Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia..., **** even Malaysia) would have the means to buy what is effectively an electric motorcycle? The answer is "no", in case you're wondering.

        Crude steam power... I think a steam powered bicycle would be rather interesting.

        I think an electric version is a good idea, but most of the counties that actually use 125cc mopeds and thing like this have little interest in electric vehicles with limited range.
