The Lotus C-01 is a concept motorcycle revealed in 2014. It was manufactured by Kodewa under brand license from Group Lotus.[1][2] It was designed by Daniel Simon,[3][4] using a carbon fiber monocoque body shell[5] described as "menacingly retro-futuristic",[6] and "la science-fiction rejoint la réalité" or "science fiction joined with reality".[7] A commentator called it "sort of a power cruiser" comparing it to the European exotic Ducati Diavel power cruiser.[5]

The engine is a 200 hp tuned version of the 75 degree v-twin Rotax motor used in the KTM RC8R superbike.[8][9]
