Re: Lotus C-01

[img]http://www.performancemag.net/news-images/658/lotus-c-01-motorcycle-1.jpg[/img][color=#000]Following two years of careful planning and intense development, Kodewa has announced that the prototype of the world’s first motorcycle to bear the legendary Lotus marque is now road registered and ready for action.[/color]
[img]http://www.performancemag.net/news-images/658/lotus-c-01-motorcycle-4.jpg[/img][color=#000]Kodewa has been granted a license to produce the motorcycle by Group Lotus plc, the world renowned sportscar manufacturer and engineering consultancy. The C-01 combines ample power via a V-twin engine with a distinctive body designed by Daniel Simon integrating carbon fibre, titanium and aerospace quality steel.[/color]
[img]http://www.performancemag.net/news-images/658/lotus-c-01-motorcycle-5.jpg[/img][color=#000]The C-01 motorcycle is not designed, engineered or produced by Group Lotus plc but is the result of a collaboration between motorsport veterans under the leadership of Kodewa, lead by Dr Colin Kolles. The development on the C-01 was carried out with the support of Holzer Group (co-owners of Kalex) and design guru Daniel Simon. Drawing on their wealth of motorsport experience, the team of engineers has designed a unique high performance superbike. The C-01 will be available in a range of liveries some of which pay homage to Lotus’ sporting pedigree. A customisation service is also available, limited only by the imagination of the client. With an exclusive production run of just 100 units, superbike collectors and fans of the Lotus brand will need to move fast to secure one.[/color]
[img]http://www.performancemag.net/news-images/658/lotus-c-01-motorcycle-6.jpg[/img][color=#000]The original idea to create the C-01 came from Kodewa’s Dr Colin Kolles. Speaking about the project he said: “We set out to create a bike that isn’t just great to ride but also represents a piece of art in motion. Over the years I have seen my fair share of style over substance, what this bike brings to the market is a unique combination of both: state of the art technology with a truly jaw-dropping aesthetic.”[/color]
