The Wheel Rider is an innovative personal transportation concept that has been specially designed for Yamaha to meet the future urban commute requirements. However, the vehicle seems like just a big round wheel, it actually features three layers, the shiny outer body, the wheel at the middle and seating area for the rider inside. The signal lights have been placed at the back, which actually is the only signifying factor of the vehicle’s backside.
