This futuristic motorcycle developed by Lit Motors in San Francisco aims to bring a new age in motorcycle safety. It has the ability to stay upright on two wheels using a technology known as Thrustcycle SRT. It’s so robust the bike should in theory stay upright even after a collision.

“We’re creating a safe motorcycle, and that’s never been done in the way that we’re doing it, where it’s also incredibly efficient” said Kim. “We’re trying to open up safety to a huge market of 200 million motorcyclists, daily in the world. We have a huge market, and I think we could have a lot of impact.”

      Not yet, but recently they released a proof of concept and it looks crazy awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=O1aAmWim838#t=33s

  • Looks remarkably like a 2-wheeled version of the Vandenbrink Carver, which itself is an amazing vehicle saddled with a ridiculous price tag (IIRC it was somewhere around $50K the last time i checked).

    If LIT can make this in a sub-$10K price (I’m thinking around $7K, they will not be able to keep up with demand. Talk about the perfect commuter vehicle.
