Suzuki Introduces Concept Burgman Fuel-Cell Scooter at Tokyo Show

At the Tokyo Motor Show, Suzuki introduced its concept Burgman Fuel-Cell Scooter, based on technologies from the Crosscage concept motorcycle that it displayed at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show (earlier post), thereby realizing a more practical and accessible fuel-cell bike.

The air-cooled PEM fuel cell—made by UK-based Intelligent Energy, Suzuki’s partner in other fuel cell efforts—is fueled by a 70 MPa (10,000 psi) hydrogen tank (the highest-pressure tank used on a bike thus far). The tank is mounted within a robust frame for safety.

The scooter is also equipped with a Li-ion battery for energy storage.


The Goracle


Does it still take more energy to produce Hydrogen than one can get out of it? If not, great technology!

I just hope that the people who run in circles and scream over nuclear power don't start running in circles screaming over hydrogen (as they emote over the bomb...).
