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?

    I do a lot of commuting, but would never get on a regular motorcycle. (Two wheeled death traps, my Dad called them). But this, I would probably buy. If it doesn't cost too much.

    It looks really stupid, like that so-called "Smart" car. Besides, I don't think I could fit into that thing.

    I LOVED THE SMART CAR !! But if this hybrid comes out and the price is right and it goes up to 70 miles per hour..........IT MIGHT BE MINE !! Looks small enough that NO ONE will hitch a ride with me............sounds great !!

    Heck, I've carried passengers on my '78 KZ750B in 6 inches of snow in the city, just have to careful, took a lass bar-hopping on black ice but noticed it & didn't go over 10 mph (in front of ploice cars too, didn't bother me), never dumped a passenger. Once it sleeted but I balked on that one Also rode in open ground in hurricane conditions (going home from work, wouldn't go out in it), how would that do in a 60 knot crosswind?

    Some are better designed and don't cost a fortune. I am considering a trike for summertime trasport. I love my car but do I need it all the time?

    That thing simply doesn't look safe to me.
    There isn't one good shot of the thing riding down the road or even across a parking lot.

    I don't care how stable it is, if it gets hit hard enough its going down.
    It looks like the only protection it provides is from a light rain. No storage space.

    It looks like a less substantial concept of the smart car.

    Probably safer than getting hit on a regular motorcycle.

    Been hit twice on a motorcycle...you have options ( small options but options nonetheless) ..In this tim can.. your'e trapped inside... bad thing .
  • ZB DM Twin 2012/06/08 16:49:29

    If it's built right, you basically have a two wheeled car...with the protections that affords you. Probably still safer than a motorcycle.
  • DM Twin ZB 2012/06/09 04:00:50

    You've never ridden or been hit then .
  • ZB DM Twin 2012/06/09 16:51:36

    Nope. Seen too many afterwards of motorcycle accidents to get on one myself.
