developed under the collaborative leadership of racing team kodewa, lotus has announced their first motorcycle: the ‘C-01′ designed by daniel simon. the superbike’s powerunit comes in the form of a V-twin engine and features a distinctive body crafted entirely from carbon fiber, titanium and aerospace quality steel.

 

‘the design process of the C-01 was a labour of love, there were many challenges, ensuring that the bike not only touches your visual senses with its timeless blend of classic appeal and modern execution, but that is safe and ergonomically sound was critical to me,’ explains simon. ‘we have worked hard to create a motorcycle with very distinctive features such as a clean main body, an extremely low side profile, a bold stance, a unique air intake, logical partline solutions and clean graphics.’

 

the C-01 will be available as an exclusive production run of just 100 units, outfitted in a range of liveries which pay homage to lotus’ racing legacy.
