This thing is really awesome, Its like it came right of some kind of science fiction movie, but will soon be reality!

But there's a true innovation at work: the C1 has two powerful on-board gyroscopes generating 1,300 ft-lbs of torque that keep the two-wheeler upright even when struck by a larger vehicle. "It would take an elephant to knock this thing over," says Kim.

The C1 will have a 200-mile range, do zero-to-60 mph in 6 seconds with a 120-mph top speed, and initially cost around $24,000, with the price falling to $19,000 after tax credits. LIT's chief marketing officer Ryan James says LIT wants to scale production so the price drops to around $12,000 after credits.

pretty amazing specs...

That is very cool! I would love to have one!
Although I still freak about small vehicles and Semi's. That just never turns out well.
But it would be perfect for me to drive to work. No highways!
I bet it wouldn't be good in the MI snow thought.
