Lit unveils the prototype self balancing electric scooter!
The Lit C1 is a revolutionary electric scooter which has solved the issue of self balancing on two wheels. It exceeds the ordinary motorbikes boundaries by keeping its balance not only when rider gets in or out of the scooter, but also in case of low speed impacts with another vehicle.
Engine power is 20 KW (27 bhp), acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is 6-8 secs, top speed could be as high as 190 km/h (120 mph), battery range is 240 km (150 mi). The price is expected to be $16000 in the US (indicatively ¤12250) and it will be launched in 2013.
It is just in the middle between a car and a scooter since as it seems rider should be kept dry and quite safe.
