We knew it was only a matter of time, and after 2 years of careful planning, along with some intense research and development, Lotus is ready to debut its first ever motorcycle. Introducing the Lotus C-01 superbike.
The British car maker is sourcing Kodewa for the build (the same people that built the Lotus Le Mans car), and have teamed up with German concept designer Daniel Simon (the same man behind Tron: Legacy) for that beautiful carbon fiber and titanium constructed body. As expected, the bike will be extremely limited (100 units in total), and there will be customization options for clients. The bike is said to be equipped with a four-stroke 1195cc V-twin engine cranking out 200 horsepower, all in a motorcycle with a curb weight just under 400 pounds. There is no price point yet, but it’s be safe to say this thing will be expensive.
