With the fuel prices reaching an all time high and looking mighty comfortable in their current position, purchasing a hi-end car does not seem like a wise alternative.
On the other hand, the adrenaline rush that comes with the pick-up speed of a fuel efficient motorcycle is smeared by its incapacity to protect the rider and the passenger.
So, what is the perfect alternative?
Maneuverability of a motorcycle and protection of a car
Wouldn’t you like to lay your hands on a vehicle that incorporates the best of both these worlds? No, that‘s not hopeless dreaming, but the Lit Motors C-1 bike is for real and is the one to own.
Daniel Kim, a designer at Lit Motors, is the man behind this dream. Lit Motors C-1 is a proposed fully enclosed two-passenger electric motorbike. This motorbike uses an electronically controlled gyroscopic stabilizing system to stay upright when stopped.On the road, if it is struck by a rowdy driver from the side, this state-of-the-art motorbike will bend but not fall.
Safety? Try tipping this thing over, you can’t
With Lit Motors C-1, you don’t have to fret anymore as it will protect you and your passenger from bad weather or unforeseen accidents. It’s also convenient to park as compared to a car. Moreover, you also contribute to the green cause by opting for an electric vehicle. Just remember to charge this green motorbike and enjoy the ride. It’s a true transporter of the future.
