It s a Motorcycle! It s a Car! No, It s the C-1!

drivers who wouldn’t touch a vehicle with a ten-foot (motorcycle, scooter, you name it ) tell you that they’re and uncomfortable; what’s to stop from tipping over and just cold and wet anyway and I be in my nice warm quiet thank you. The proponent of two-wheeled vehicle will insist that their is super fuel efficient, (and brakes) quickly, is maneuverable, takes up less (yay, easy parking), and so on.

And the will never ever because both parties are sure that the other is full of, uh, hot air. One possible is what Lit Motors came up – the C-1 is fully-enclosed. has two wheels, and has a controlled stabilizing system to keep it It’s even fully While the C-1 doesn’t actually yet, Lit Motors has an operating of the stabilization system and a fiberglass of the vehicle. The next stop is a prototype, which they will be done in a few months.

They are willing and eager to details, though.

The Company

Lit is based in San Francisco and headed up by Kim, who traveled the world for a and used the opportunity to evaluate challenges and innovations all over. In an with Gizmag, Kim said:

I met and thousands of people, and learned how function and how people get around. It was an experience. That s basically inIformed me, for the rest of my life.


There are supposed to be a number of versions of the C-1, aimed at markets. Differences include the pack (8-10 kWh for developed and 4-6 kWh for others ) and the range (somewhere 150 and 220 miles for the bigger-batteried bike). models will have hub in the wheels and reach a top speed of 120 mph you can break all the speed limit

Flywheels below the vehicle as previously mentioned, will stabilize the vehicle and generage ft/lbs of torque. Kim told that the C-1 will not be unstable going really fast corners (a problem with previous attempts at gyroscopically bikes).

The bike will stay connected to the internet, in to monitor traffic, construction, and I have to wonder if, like the A2 concept. it will also connect to social media Facebook. I can’t see that as a positive.

Traffic updates, on the other are pretty awesome.

The first run of is expected to be about $24,000 and the bike is supposed to go on sale next year if all goes to plan. Once the vehicles are in production, the price should to $16,000 USD.

You Can Order It, If You

While the bike, as we said, actually exist yet, Lit will take a deposit refundable, so not a bad deal) if you want one of the ones out the door. They have too many yet, but may change.

The C-1 addresses some of the sticking between motorcycles and cars; great that it’s and it’s great that it quickly and goes pretty far it needs to be charged. It seems positive by all initial accounts, but I I’d like to (make someone drive it before passing judgment.

What do you think one? Let us know in the comments,
