What is interesting in the concept? James offers a typical internal combustion engine to drive the rear wheel, and a pair of electric motors to drive the front wheel. It is based on a lattice frame and on the sides, James drew paired exhaust pipes of the Termignoni type. Some elements of the concept are clearly inspired by Ducati XDiavel. The concept is linking modernity with the future of Tokyo.
