This is a new enclosed electric motorcycle, from Lit Motors. My dad sent me a link via the NYTimes. I’ve seen crappy enclosed trishaws but this seems different. What’s cool about this C-1 bike is that it has two gyroscopes and seems difficult if not impossible to knock over. Watch the video to see.
Four wheels or two wheels, there is a market spot for the humble and annoying trishaw. On the four wheel side Bajaj is developing the RE60, a four wheeler with the soul of a trishaw. This C-1 is different. For one thing, they’re selling it for about $20,000, which is mega high. So they’re not going for the price segment, they’re going for the form factor. Which is kinda an interesting idea, but perhaps not a $20,000 one.
