Japanese Tow Trucks [Pic]

Not exactly a `truck` per se, but it tows just fine.

I've got a feeling that the transmissions on those bikes won`t last long....they are not designed to pull that much weight

@Nickle2: Well! It wasn't a typo? Lolz!

A quick looks at the 2014, 1832CC Model:
900 - 930 pounds
Reverse gear
ABS brakes
Airbag...what! lolz!
CB Radio

No mention of air conditioning, which I`ve seen on bikes...

The only power assist steering I could find was on 4x4s...

It is my understanding that ABS brakes require power, how else could they function?

I'll have to bow in submission on this one.
In my entire life, I have never seen a reason for power steering on a motorbike, heard of or seen one in the UK. In all the years I have ridden, I have relied on the laws of physics to assist me in the safe passage along the highway.
Even the scrawniest of stick-insects, or the colossal, pathologically clinically obese uses the laws of physics to operate, balance and steer a two wheeled vehicle. Why the hell do you need power assistance? What happened to physics? Perhaps the men of the old country are made of sterner stuff than that of the colonies.
Some motorcycles are even fitted with an electric reverse gear for the physically feeble!
Please help me to understand this motorcycling aberration by posting a picture/diagram of the apparatus in question.

You mounted a keg of beer on your motercycle? Isn't that a bit extreme when drinking and driving?
