Yamaha EC-f - Click above for high-res image gallery

It's certainly not a motorcycle, and we'd have a tough time convincing ourselves that it's a scooter, too. Regardless, we think the Yamaha EC-f, which is currently on display at the Tokyo Motor Show, sports a distinctive look and plenty of cool features. According to Yamaha, the lack of "exhaust parts" is what inspired its "bold" and "sculptural" design.

Sadly, there isn't much in the way of actual hard data about the conceptual electric scooter, other than the fact that it sports some sort of lithium ion battery pack and .6 kW (just under one horsepower) of power from its electric motor. So, a speed demon the EC-f is not – we'd guess it should be able to maintain moped-like velocities of about 30 miles per hour.

Take a look at our image gallery of live photos of the green and white Xbox-esque Yamaha EC-f in from Tokyo below. Also note just how much more sinister the EC-fs looks in its silver and black scheme. As much as we'd love to see something this interesting in production... well, don't count on it.
