The iconic car manufacturer created Lotus Motorcycles to design and build a first motorcycle to be be named Lotus C-0. It is announced by the company as to become the most impressive appearance on public roads on two wheels. Lotus Motorcycles is a joint project of Kodewa, car designer Daniel Simon and the Holzer Group. The Lotus C-01 will be a hyper bike with integrated racing technology.
It will be manufactured of materials like carbon, titanium and aerospace quality steel, which are also used in Formula 1. Safety, ergonomics and design are the most important factors the design team has put emphasis on. It will be a state of the art motorbike powered by an approximately 200 horsepower engine. The shapes of the famous Lotus 49 car were a main inspiration, and all color schemes pay homage to iconic Lotus racing liveries, such as the dashing black and gold. I will publish the first pictures as soon as released.
