Would You Want a Motorcycle-Car Hybrid?

This isn't the first time auto-makers have tried to design a motorcycle-car hybrid, but as "Top Gear" showed us a few years back, the Reliant Robin was hardly practicle. We really hope Lit Motors Inc. improved on that, because they're attempting to develop a new breed of motorcycle-car hybrids. Fortunately, developers say it'll take a baby elephant to knock this one over.

The Lit C-1 is technically a motorcycle, as it runs on two wheels, but has a chassis that looks a lot like a smart car. The vehicle uses a system of sensors and gyros to stabilize the bike, even if it gets it, and has built-in "smartphone" technology that keep it up-to-date on traffic and weather. It also uses an electric motor. Lit explains, "We are reinventing the motorcycle and rethinking the future of commuting to create green jobs supporting a sustainable future." They should be hitting the streets in 2014. Want one?

    Oh yes, I am a big fan of them. The Honda Civic was a very popular one. I like more the Oswego Motor Co style (cockpit seating, outriggers, classed as a motorcycle).

    I can't use anything that can't even carry a bag of groceries, second of all it probably cost as much as a car that can carry groceries. So my answer is no way.

    I would like: elctric-human hybrid, charge by pedals or off grid, 3 wheels, batteries assist, linkable so person in front controls steering with computer assistance, built in communication to others in "train", trailer options.

    Two wheels? They wouldn't be practical in winter weather, or safe in any condition. They probably aren't that good on gas, and would pollute as bad as a lawn mower. Probably cost as much as a small car. Stupid idea. I missed the electric motor feature, in that case, who could afford one?

    Likely with that attitude, humans would have turned their backs on the invention of the wheel--after all, what good is it?

    Push localities to build or set aside via Jersey Walls, bicycle trails to shopping areas and from counties to cities. Peddle power!
  • Fallout Hobbes 2012/06/21 07:35:27

    I agree. We should do everything we can to accommodate pedal power.
    Plus every city bus in the USA should have bike racks. Some type of
    bike loaner system to supplement city travel would be nice. I'm all for
    anything that adds more parking spaces and reduces traffic.

    yup, not only would it reduce traffic and add parking spaces, but it would benefit public health both directly (for those who peddle) and by reducing pollution. It would be a win-win situation. Of course, if the idea became popular, the oil corporations and their conservative representatives in Washington, would fight against it. Still, I peddle.

    The awesomeness of a motorcycle combined with the increased safety (hopefully) and comfort of a car *cough* air conditioning *cough*... count me in! The turning and the self- stability is also badass, it would almost be sifi like to turn corners.

    It seems pretty silly. The only reason I'd buy a motorcycle is for the cool factor. The only reason I'd buy a car is so that I can drive during less-than-ideal conditions. This isn't cool, and I don't think I'd want to drive it on a slippery, wet or icy road...

    maybe on three wheels but top weight and balance on two wheels is a higher control concern with this model! This is an insult to Bikers!

    However intriguing it looks I would stay clear of it until I run checks on the safety records of the vehicle as it is the question of lives not just the compatibility model that has been created. Its the Road Worthiness checks and handling capacity that counts not the looks. The car may have great looks if the MoCar suddenly gets a surge or a boost, fuel richness, brake issues etc. it is considered to be unfit and unviable on the road. The tyres too play a major role.
    May test drive it for a feel but don't think I would buy, just too picky on what I choose.

    I would consider this but only if it comes in a larger size to carry two people...great for my mostly around town shopping, but too small for my manditory freeway driving. I need something larger that can compete safely in freeway traffic, and carry two adults comfortably. I'm sure that can be done with a motorcycle-car hybrid.

    I would want a older car pre-owned by Nikola Tesla, a Pierce Arrow pure electric car, if it have his power box in it.
