Like in BMW motor cycles, are these bicycles also driven by shaft instead of chain?

Very whacky , thats why i love it. Porsche makes cycles too, one off, but a bit more conventional. Costs around 4000 pounds, but splashed with carbon fibre.

Now we have concept bicycles?? lol. The most useless concept i saw was a bicycle by a chinese which had 2 seats. One was normally where it is and the second one was located a few inches lower and behind the first one (where that rack thing is located above the rear mudguard). According to the designer the logic was that the rider can choose to sit on the seat in which he feels more comfortable.
