The Lotus C-01 is a Helluva Superbike

Lotus C-01 superbike

Lotus is known for their four-wheelers, but they’ll soon be known for something other than that with the unveiling of their first motorcycle, the C-01, by Kodewa Performance Motorcycles. Designed by Daniel Simon with support from the Holzer Group, the C-01 comes equipped with a powerful engine encased in an aesthetically-pleasing chassis. Specifically, it’s powered by a 1.2-liter twin V2 engine that can produce up to 200HP and is dressed up in a chassis built from titanium, carbon fiber, and aerospace-quality steel.

With a dry weight of 400lb, that’s a power-to-weight ratio of 0.5HP/lb or 0.83kW/kg. So not only is it one sexy bike, but it’s also mighty powerful, too.

Dr. Collin Kolles of Kodewa states: “We set out to create a bike that isn’t just great to ride but also represents a piece of art in motion. Over the years I have seen my fair share of style over substance, what this bike brings to the market is a unique combination of both – state of the art technology with a truly jaw-dropping aesthetic.”

It looks like they managed to achieve just that.
