The reinvention of two-wheeled driving

California based company Lit Motors, wants to reinvent the motorcycle that we know today. As you can see in the video below, Lit Motors has manufactured a fully enclosed, two-wheeled motorcycle that runs purely on electric. With a top speed of over 120 MPH and battery packs providing 200 miles per charge, the C-1 is already a pretty sexy idea. But the concept-bike can do some more: The engineers also focused very much on safety, it is almost impossible to tip the motorcycle over. A elaborate system of fly wheels takes care of it, says CEO Kim. Well, we would ride a bike like that. It’s still a prototype, but Lit Motors plans to bring the C-1 in custom show-rooms by the end of 2014.
