John Reed's Yamaha 650 Auga concept. Built in 1982 the bike was created for Suzuki UK and feature many innovations that are still unique even in 2012. The hub centered steering, vertical handlebars, and kneeler riding position are still a gleam in motorcycle designers eye even today. Sadly todays bike buyers are still unready for a such dramatic change. (private collection)
