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.

Sep 30 2014 1:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

You may have read the news last week that Lotus was killing its only remaining road-legal model here in the United States. There were a lot of sad faces around the U.S., but considering the car never sold well to start with, I didn’t quite feel the sorrow. Still, if you were one of the Lotus fans who spent the week crying into your ultra-lightweight driving gloves, I have good news for you. According to a report from Jalopnik, the Evora will be back as a 2016 model.A statement was post ...

New Lotus Esprit Is Dead

Sep 29 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

Not long ago, critics of Lotus accused the automaker of biting off more than it could chew. After all, the British sports car manufacturer and engineering firm had shown six all-new concepts at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, was on somewhat shaky financial ground, and had only a range of aging track-day toys in its lineup. Not much has chan ...
