Now, a motorbike that runs on excrement!

Published On: Mon, Oct 17th, 2011 | Transportation Science | By BioNews

A Japanese company has come up with a motorbike, dubbed Toilet Bike Neo, which will leave nothing to waste, as it will be powered by excrement.

Japan’s leading toilet manufacturer Toto, is the brainchild behind this curious creation, which uses a modified lavatory and a mobile laboratory for processing.

This bizarre invention encourages the rider to use the portaloo as much as possible on every journey as the waste is turned into biofuel, which powers the machine, the Daily Mail reported.

The company hopes the travelling toilet, which can reach a maximum speed of 50mph, will help reduce CO2 emissions by 50 per cent in the next six years.

The three-wheeled chopper is currently completing a 600-mile tour of Japan and is set to arrive in Tokyo on November 2.
