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?

    bone-head idea . When i want to be in a cage I drive a car ...when i want to "ride" I drive a bike , none of that fancy stuff getting in the way just me and a motor and as little else as I can get away with ...even a wind screen is a but of a distraction from the sanctity of "the ride"

    and my guess is that you would still be required to wear a helmet. That would really suck.

    If it's affordable, sure. I like the idea of a motorcycle, but am not the type person to ride one of those things. Too old, for one thing. But having it have the protections of the body like a car, sounds like a good thing for me.

    I would totally run this through a crowd of idiot Klansmen (a la Blues Brothers) and interrupt their stupidity. Klansmen, be intimidated by the sheer awesomeness of that event, and the really awesome hybrid car.

    that was what I was thinking - all the worst things from a bike and a car , a lot like that dam Can Am - god i hate that thing !

    AMEN! lol.... rode past one a few weeks ago and the dude stuck his arm out to wave at me. I ignored him and rode right on by. Two things I won't wave at.... Can-Ams and any scooter. Motorcycle wannabe's.

    LOL- not waving now that is cold / but I see what your saying ...they may as well be in a car ! My mom took a test ride on the Can Am at biketoberfest last year - I told her she would hate it but she had to try it ....she hates it ! Can you believe the profound stupidity of letting people take their road test on one of them ???

    I bet you'd have to wear a helmet too... like wearing a raincoat inside the shower.
