Interesting new vehicle







Holy cow, Lit Motors could change everything in China, India, Europe, and in the U.S. Lit Motors is making an electric motorcycle with doors, two pedals, and a steering wheel. It has a prototype called the C-1. It will have a range of 200 miles on a single charge, and it will go 0-60 in under six seconds. It has built-in gyros to keep it upright at a standstill, at speed, and in a collision. It'll eventually cost $14,000. It's going to be an uphill battle, but if Lit Motors can get this thing on the road, it would turn the auto industry upside down, starting in the developing world, and maybe even in the U.S.
