This, at last is the upcoming C-01 motorbike from Lotus a low futuristic looking machine that makes much use of  exposed carbon fibre and is powered by a 150kW V-twin motor of as yet undetermined capacity.

It will be one of the most powerful bikes you can buy when it goes on sale in 2015.

Few details have been made public, but we understand is that Lotus will not actually build the C-01, but rather a new company that simply uses the name. Which gives it just a little bit less credibility.
