Full Lotus


Gorgeous Lotus C-01 bike is half retro, half Tron, full awesome The company's first foray into two-wheeled transportation is a work of art—the Lotus Motorcycle C-01.


Created by genius designer Daniel Simon and developed by Germany's Kodewa Performance Motorcycles, this 200 HP V-Twin incorporates carbon fiber, titanium, and aerospace quality steel into its frame. What's more, the bike can be extensively customized to match your taste and riding style. But buyers beware: Only 100 units of the C-01 will be produced.

It's beautiful, to be sure, and probably 100 grand, but that tiny seat and forced forward posture will make you wish for a cruiser.

Looks like it would be worth every penny, if only ridden an hour at a time. Pretty though.

I'll stick with the Fat Boy™.

Looks like an old skool cafe racer. Ever ride one? I have - a 750 Kaw triple, early 70's. Your nutz will kill you.

A bike like this puts you in a certain position for a reason. Comfort is overrated.

As Jay Leno was quoted quite a number of years ago- "Never trust a motorcycle you can't see through".
Quite satsfied with my 73 Bonnie and 68 BSA for just that reason.
Classics of any make never go out of style. From the engineer's mind, to paper, modeled then produced, no computers involved.

This is not something that will be ridden on the street. No Lights or signals and no license plate bracket. I'll bet it would be a lot of fun at Daytona or the Isle of Mann, though.

Will it kill you deader than say, a Harley?

Where is the windscreen?

Hm, not a very attractive bike, that shroud over the engine doesn't work for me.

I gave up riding when I had kids.

That bike could make me go back.

I do admire the Lotus livery as it was on the F1 car, but this thing is nonsense. May I suggest the latest offerings from Ducati, Aprilia or MV Augusta as reasonable alternatives, beautiful and all highly functional.
