As a producer of some of the most unique supercars to ever hit the road, Lotus has extended licensing to Kodewa Performance Motorcycles to produce the C-01, which will be the first motorcycle in the brand's line of vehicles. Designed by Daniel Simon who has previously worked with manufacturers like Bugatti and Volkswagen (as well as for Hollywood concepts appearing in flicks like Captain America, Tron and Oblivion), the C-01 is an elegant bike that fuses the eye-catching design of futuristic movie vehicles with the power and agility of the Lotus brand.

On the strikingly unique aesthetic of the bike, Simon said, “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."

Constructed with carbon fiber, aerospace-quality steel and titanium, the C-01 should be remarkably light and responsive on the road. The Kodewa-engineered V-twin, 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine is more than sufficient to earn the C-01 the classification of a superbike, as it apparently puts out 200hp.

Anyone interested in getting a C-01 will need to act fast the moment the superbike is released, because only 100 of them will be produced, making them instant and incredible collector's items. Dr. Colin Kolles of Kodewa noted, "Over the years I have seen my fair share of style over substance, what this bike brings to the market is a unique combination of both: state of the art technology with a truly jaw-dropping aesthetic."

In regards to Kolles' remark on aesthetics, we couldn't agree more. But, as far as substance is concerned, we'll have to withhold judgment until this marvelous machine is commercially available.
