They're far better known for the sports and race cars, but believe it or not, Lotus can come up with a pretty slick two-wheeler, as well. The Lotus C-01 Motorcycle is a perfect example. Designed by Daniel Simon of Bugatti and Tron: Legacy fame, this ultra-limited bike (only 100 are being made) features a slick, lightweight body, a two-cylinder, four-stroke 1,195cc engine putting out 200 horsepower, and paired with a six-gear transmission. While we don't have performance numbers yet, considering it weighs under 400 pounds, we're expecting it to be really, really fast.
Most people buying a Bimmer bike aren't overly concerned with customization. But we're guessing most of them aren't buying the BMW R NineT Motorcycle. This stripped-down roadster is powered by a 2-cylinder 4-stroke flat twin engine producing 110 hp and a top speed of over 125 mph. Other features include standard ABS, an upside-down front fork and BMW Motorrad Paralever rear, a simple speedometer and rev counter complemented by a multifunction display, and the ability to change everything from the wheels to the rear frame.
