The Hyanide is actually a “a bike, a snowmobile and a 4 X 4 hybrid” that sports tank-like treads — powered by a 60hp 500cc single-cylinder engine, with a top speed of 85mph. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

The tank-like tread consists of 77 identical segments—each made from hard plastic covered with tire rubber —held together by Kevlar rope. Each segment flexes independently, making the tread significantly more limber than if its components were rigid. Not only does this setup help with traction, but it would allow the tank- cum-motorcycle to corner like no other vehicle
