Pursued by ruthless goverment agents he plans to save himself by exposing the bike to the public on a live TV show hosted by a popular singing star. But, even the lovely Eve has secrets of her own and the government has much more to hide than just a transforming military motorcycle. As Shogo begins to unravel the mystery of the bike, he discovers a reality-shattering secret about the city and the world he thought he knew.
