I am not much into motorcycles, but these days I was looking for something rather spectacular to write about than the usual stuff about cars, news or leaked photos.
I am talking about a carbon-fibered Lotus C-01 motorcycle that really caught my attention. It is not THE outstanding bike, but it is surely worth mentioning.
The images with the C-01 were taken from Motorcycle News in the UK and reveal the upcoming of the new Lotus C-01. I was quite amazed by its design power cruiser-like, with a raked-out front end and huge wide rubber in the back.
Lotus C-01 is powered by a liquid-cooled V-twin engine, which is similar with the Austrian RC8R, but with more tuned features, to deliver its rough 200 horsepower.
As the title suggests, a carbon-fiber monocoque will house the bike`s powertrain, being surrounded by a traditional-looking black and yellow color scheme.
Form its aggressive look and power, we might think of the C-01 as being the future competitor for the powerful Ducati Diavel, as the first is supposed to be very quick in a straight line.
