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.

Sirens on Sports Cars, Ambulance Edition: UAE Paramedics to Get Lotus Evora and Ford Mustangs

Oct 13 2014 12:52pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

If the idea of law enforcement using exotic cars to hunt you down is a little scary, the notion of putting sports cars in the hands of paramedics to bring life-saving assistance is far more reassuring. As it turns out, both are possible in—where else?—Dubai. That’s right, not only do Emirati cops have Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, and a Bugatti Veyron in their wildly exotic patrol-car fleet, now Dubai paramedics are getting a L ...
