    Uh, no.Those are not Cyberglyphs. They're Kanji (Japanese writing).

    Apparently the kanji are 瞬速, which translates as... "instantaneous"? Something with "speed" or "fast"? It's hard to tell because they're so stylized and incomplete due to the rear wheels in between.

    it's hard to tell if it's Chinese or Japanese you know. But basically it means "extremely fast" or "super speed".
