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...

I can see it appealing to car drivers who want a bit of fun & something different , but hard core bikers - NO ! . As a engineer  I  see problems occuring  when the bike has a few miles on it  , and in heavy traffic the problems would be 10 fold . All the reasons a bloke ,who is not a biker , would want one , would be all the reasons  " I " wouldn"t want one  - if you get my drift ? . No this sort of vehicle is a long way off - thank god ! .

Good citycar, bad bike

I think whether this is good depends on what you consider its replacing. If your considering selling your citycar then this'll be a congestion charge free, bus lane entering, easy parking convenience that keeps the rain off you & (being half a car) is light enough to go a long way on one charge.

If however you're a biker then you're probably already willing to put up with a little rain & this thing gives up most of the stuff you actually want in a bike such as something to ride rather than get in.

If anyone stands to benefit from this its the average city scooter rider who just needs to get from A to B as comfortably & economically as possible &, thankfully for residents, more quietly than their little scooter.
