Lotus' first-ever motorcycle, a beast which brings together no less than three huge names in the business: Lotus, Daniel Simon and most likely, KTM.
Lotus entrusted the shaping of the C-01 to the design guru Daniel Simon of Kodewa fame, and the result is as intriguing as it is spectacular. Just like Lotus cars, the C-01 oozes personality and represents a most bold statement, if with a very pronounced "love it or hate it" factor.
