Lit Motors C1, which is the enclosed motorcycle
This is the motorcycle that I wanted so long. The C-1 enclosed motorcycle from Lit Motors uses "flywheel" and it's a not training wheel but to stay upright. It could change the transportation world in a big way. I don't think it's early to make that sort of unqualified sweeping statement. There should be sell this kind of motorcycle earlier.
May be some people still think it's a little unstable and unsafety. As you see, the two-wheeled all-electric all-wheel-drive C-1 combines the small footprint of a motorcycle with the comforts and safety of an automotive cabin to create an affordable, yet stylish, super-efficient vehicle.
How it accomplishes its balancing act is really the cool part of this machine's story. It does it with flywheels that deliver 1,300 pound-feet of stabilizing torque and of course, if the discs always spun strictly on the horizontal, it would be a little tricky to actually turn the C-1 since you need to lean, so the C-1′s brain takes the input from the steering wheel and other factors into account and alters its axes accordingly. I hope it is going to be more popular and the second enclosed motorcycles are on a Priceprice.com so that I also could get this one!
About its price
The article said, that in a phone interview, Lit Motors CEO Daniel Kim told Auto Blog Green that once the company is building in volumes of 10,000 or more units, the price for the C-1 is expected to be around $16,000 and that money gives you 0-to-60 in about six to eight seconds. And provides a range of 150 miles.
There is a nice little video from the company showing how the C-1 works and it shows how it might be integrated into one's cosmopolitan lifestyle.
