We all knew Yamaha was bringing a new concept to Tokyo but no one expected it to be a truck. The Cross Hub Concept is a four-wheel drive, open-cargo-bay cross-country badass!
At just under 4.5 metres, the Yamaha Cross Hub Concept, is a middle-weight SUV, unlike the massive trucks. But it gets all the needed brawn with the fancy Falken rubber, raised suspension and of course, the four-wheel drive. The cargo bay seems to fit a full-size motocross bike and even if that won’t be offered with the truck, we are already sold on it.
Just like the concept, the cabin is also interesting. The driver’s seat sits right at the centre like the McLaren F1. The four seats in the cabin are laid out like a diamond – one seat in the front, two in the second row and a single cramped seat in the back, in that not so big cabin.
Just like its previous two concepts, the chances of this Cross Hub Concept seeing the light of the day are almost non-existent. But then seeing such fresh concepts does bring out a smile on the faces of us enthusiasts.
