Motorcycle kicks up a stink with bike powered by rider’s poo

 

Green machine: 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

This is one motorcycle that doesn’t leave anything to waste – because it’s powered by excrement.

The curious creation – dubbed Toilet Bike Neo – is the brainchild of Japan’s leading toilet manufacturer Toto and uses a modified lavatory and a mobile laboratory for processing.

Bizarrely the rider is even encouraged to use the portaloo as much as possible on every journey as the waste is turned into biofuel which powers the machine.
