Lit Motors C1 - the future of motorcycling?

This is the two-wheeled vehicle Lit Motors founder Daniel Kim hopes will be the future of transportation, and it's called the C-1. What you have here is a gyro-stabilised electric vehicle which Lit Motors say will be on sale by 2014. The two gyros - housed under the seats - keep the vehicle upright, even in the event of a collision according...

crap

In a word "Shite"  just like the jokes at TT races electric bikes and cars are pathetic, the whole point in Bikes is they are cool, they look cool and they have to sound cool and electric cars/bikes just sound like a sodding sewing machine

Gyros

To be effective the gyros need to be at least a certain weight and these would take a little while to spin up and down. What happens if they havn't spun down properly when you suddenly need to lean into a corner! It's all over!

C-1

I'm sure some brain box made a C-5 electric thing about 30 years ago claiming it was the future of commutor travel, mind you those things didn't do 120 mph.

Kinder like or not

Ok what's wrong with it, it's got doors for one, how you gonna pick it up if it falls over? You need to have something to hang onto to pick the thing up.

 

Kids could make your life hell, they could push the thing over and stand on one door you would never get out.

 

Battery operated, well what happens if your battery runs low, you pull up at the lights and plonk your flat on one side the whole thing scratched up and damaged loadsa money.

 

The good thing about it is that it will keep you dry and potentially warm, except it's electric so no heating then unless you want to waste out your battery just keeping warm.

 

Air bags what's the thing with these damd air bags, I don't want a motorcycle to have f**king air bags they can stick their air bags up their air out let.

I don't want seat belts eather, if it is a motorcycle then no thanks to seat belts, if it is motorcycle then I don't want air bags, I don't want helmets I don't want seat belts and I definately don't want f**king air bags.

I want to get in or on something no helmets not seat belts not air bags and just drive the thing.

I don't mind gyros if it helps to keep it up right but hey what if you have a collision and the gyro is put off balance?

 

Oh my back to the drawing board I think, but I would drive one once all the shit seat belts and air bags had been removed.

Not a viable concept for most, I do see a point if the average car driver used something like this (yes I know bikes do the same but this is more car than bike) then surely the city would be a better less congested place.

No helmet fly by night?? well you may not have much to protect but I'm sure most of us don't mind the use of a lid.

Liked the kids knocking it over and standing on the doors a genuine laugh out loud moment - hoping that was in jest.

My gawd is it ugly
