This is the latest computer image from Swedish engineer Mikael Tiainen who is building what might well turn out to be one of the most extreme bikes of all time – a 240bhp, turbocharged and two-wheel drive Yamaha R6.

This image shows the engine and an adapted hydraulic front wheel primary drive that will be connected to an Ohlins two-wheel drive transmission. The project is far from finished but we will be updating the story as it develops.
