Lit Motors unveils all-electric, fully enclosed motorcycle

Lit Motors CEO Daniel Kim wants to reinvent the motorcycle as we know it today. His idea? To design and manufacture a fully enclosed, two-wheeled motorcycle that runs purely on electric. SmartPlanet gets an exclusive first look at the C1-concept vehicle and its patented gyroscopic stability technology that helps prevent it from tipping over.

A Motorcycle that Can Change the Industry !
A San Francisco start-up has developed a car that could be a game changer for the auto industry. Lit Motors' C-1 bridges the gap between a car and a motorcycle, providing the safety of a car without the high ongoing costs of ownership. Because the vehicle is electric, commuting costs are negligible: "You can get to work and back for less than 50 cents a day,"

Motorcycle Briefcase made by Honda!!!
I think Tony Stark has one of these as well. mykarz: "...those scooters actually came as an optional accessory with i think it was a civic or accord in like 82-83. They were built to specifically fit in the trunk of that car, which is pretty cool in my opinion.  Only however many cars that were sold in that time span that had those scooters added, are how many of those that exist. Its a super rare little scooter, so you're lucky to see one."

2-wheeled untippable EV gyrocar from SF automaker startup
When Danny Kim founded his car company in 2010, he was confident that at even 30-year-olds, he could take on the big automakers. When we interviewed him in 2011, he called San Francisco the next electric Detroit and showed us his cardboard mockup for his C-1: the two-wheeled car/motorcycle hybrid that couldn't fall over, thanks to gyroscopes. We returned two years later (in August of 2013) just as Kim was offering a test drive - inside the Lit offices in San Francisco's SoMA district- to a potential investor. A few months later, with nearly 3/4s of their planned production run for 2014 already sold (but no road-ready prototype), the company received a patent for their gyroscopically-controlled stabilization system. The concept of a gyrocar isn't new (the first was manufactured in 1914 for a Russian count), but Kim wants to create a "rolling iPhone" where the user experience feels like an extension of your smartphone. The final product should reach top speeds of 100 mph, with a range of 220 miles per charge. During our visit last August the prototype had just one sensor, but he expects the final gyrocar to have around 32. "It's really a robot," he explains. Original story: f-automaker-startup/
