Rumors suggests the motorcycle have 200 hp

Anyone who recognizes the name Lotus will associate the brand with sports cars. Lotus always makes me think about Roger Moore as James Bond and his Lotus Esprit that turned into a submarine. Lotus is currently struggling on the automotive market with slow sales and has now reportedly lended its name to a motorcycle manufacturing effort.

The first motorcycle from Lotus Motorcycles will be called the Lotus C-01. The Lotus automotive company isn't directly associated with the motorcycle operations. The motorcycles will be designed by former Volkswagen designer Daniel Simon. Lotus Motorcycles is a joint project between Simon and the Holzer Group along with automotive racing team Kodewa.

So far, all we've seen of the new Lotus motorcycle is the teaser image you see here showing a carbon fiber gas tank. The C-01 is described as a "hyper bike" with integrated racing technology. The motorcycle will use carbon, titanium, and aerospace quality steel. The only specification and has been teased so far is a power output of about 200 hp.

Why “C’était Un Rendezvous” Just May Be the Best Car Flick Movie Ever Made

Nov 4 2014 12:48pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

There are many fantastic action movies that feature amazing examples of automotive derring do—usually involving car chases. From Cannonball Run to the Bourne Identity to Bullitt or any of the Bond movies, Hollywood has put many stars in cars and made many cars into stars themselves. But in our opinion, the best driving film of all time wasn’t shot anywhere near Hollywood, involves no actual chase (unless “chasing tail” counts), and isn’t even nine minutes ...
