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.

Vespas can be incredibly bulky, although they’re relatively comfortable to ride on. Segways can cut your travel time down in half, but it can also make you look like a fool in the process if you’ve got poor balance. The solution? The Scrooser, a hybrid vehicle that looks like a cross benween a Vespa and a Segway.

The Scrooser is an electric scooter, but it’s not the like the usual ones where all you have to do is sit and twist the throttle to go your merry way. Instead, you’ve got to give it a good kick-off by standing up and kicking at the ground to move it along. The direct-drive 1,000-watt electric motor helps you along by amplifying that initial burst of speed with four times as much power.
