From the back cover:
"In Tsutomu Nihei's nightmare vision of the future, the N5S
virus has swept across the Earth, turning most of the population
into zombie-like drones. Zoichi Kanoe, an agent of Toa Heavy
Industry, is humanity's last hope, and he's not even human! With
the help of Fuyu, a digitized intelligence built into the computer
system of his heavy dual coil motorcycle, Zoichi's search for the
key to salvation will take him on a journey across surreal
landscapes and hurl him into battle against mind-bending evil.
Prepare yourself for the ultimate trip-- Prepare yourself for the
world of Biomega.
After capturing Eon Green, DRF forces are amassing around Toa Heavy
Industry headquarters and have taken Dr. Kurokawa and his daughter
into custody. Zoichi must attempt a rescue--Dr. Kurokawa's
laboratory may yield critical information on Eon Green. Elsewhere,
Toa Heavy Industry agent Nishu Mizunoe searches for Kozlov Grebnev
and the secrets he knows about the DRF's research, origins
and their apocalyptic plan for the entire human race!"
