Zerotracer is a zero-emission electric motorcycle with a kevlar construction.
Fully enclosed motorcycle goes from 0 to 100 km in 4.5 seconds, has a top speed of 250 km/h, and can travel 450 km on a single charge.
Friggin’ awesome but the training wheels and blinkers are dorky.
Front isn’t very cool.

Evie, it’d be impossible to stop without the training wheel things…
Look how far the wheels are apart from each other! I bet the handling isn’t that great. Apart from that, with a good designer, this thing can go far.
looks quite low. i hope it can handle speed bumps. i desperately want one since i was already staring into the distance watching this.

Probably needs the training wheels so it don’t blow over in a stiff breeze!
the training wheels are pretty much the kickstand so you dont fall over.
Seems a little topsy-turvey and I’m not sure the wheels would react as quickly as a human foot for stabilizing the bike.
Hmm…. fully enclosed motorcycle with stabilizing wheels on the sides… I liked this better when it was just called “A Car.”
haha yep agree with Reckybuh!!! this just totally ruined the concept of motorbike!! it has the word ‘bike’ in it which bizarley means its only supposed to have 2 wheels!
I’d like to try it out!
@raads yeah well essentially it only uses two wheels, in every picture where the bike is moving, those stabilizing wheels are retracted, its probably just for stopping and starting..
I mean.. personally I don’t know how I feel about it but.. It is a motorcycle.
I love the idea, as James Anzalone said, duh the wheels don’t stay down, it would handle poorly. I like it, Just make the front better, and I would buy one.

AAAAH!!! Do want one! Sooooooooooon… :D
Cool, cannot really tell rider position, or height of vehicle, but I’d definitely give it a shot.
The only thing i like about this is the zero emissions.
from the vibe i get from the rest of the comments, i would agree and say i’m a little unsure about this. great concept, love the zero emissions, but the wheels are a little weird. you can’t react as fast, you aren’t as flexible, and what happens in a crash? are you better off or not surrounded by metal?

A redesign of the “training wheels” at low speeds would defiantly help sales of these things. The appeal is that it looks very futuristic (aside from low-e, fuel savings, smaller size, etc) but the training wheels make it seem nerdy. They should make the wheels coming down look like wings or something. Really, anything that would make them look less like training wheels.

Awesome motorcycle. Very stylish design :)
But I think it will take some time to ride this kind of motorcycle because this is unusual riding.

its amazing how many of you find fault with something thats tried and true for many years now . Yea ” training wheels ” that term alone shows your ignorance. Lets see what you have designed and sold lately.

Its a good design, but I have to agree with my father who has riden bikes for over 25 yrs now. The angle of the rider, and the lack of knee mobility would cause panic in experienced riders.
I’m sure its a fun bike to ride, and I’d like to test ride one myself. I just think that the Zerotracer throws people off when they hear motorcyle as its description.

There is only a door on the left side. There should be an escape hatch in the ceiling in case the side-wheels fail and it falls on it’s left side. I like the concept and have been waiting for this vehicle to arrive. I will buy one.

With it enclosed the only problem I see is Heat like in Texas when its in the 3 digits!

As technology gets a little farther along,a gyro package could be fitted,enabling it to lose the outrigger’s required to hold it up when stopping.The gyro’s would hold it up when stopping. Camera’s could replace the side mirror’s,giving you a look at the blind spots,and making the vehicle even more streamlined.Two doors like the Lit Motors vehicle would be more attractive to buyer’s.

How much does it cost

The retractable “Knee” wheels are not controlled by the operator, but by the speed of the vehicle. It is quicker than the rider putting his foot down. This is the second generation monotracer from Peraves and they have worked out all of the problems.

Saw one of these on the road in PA today, at least it looked like one.
Oct 14th, 2012
Yes… What is the cost. The C-1 is 16K+ and it gyros instead of “training wheels” to keep it up. Very cool idea though. Somone needs to make an all electric, single place vehicle for 5K USD. Just my thought. Now, back to my work…
