Apple in talks with Lit Motors
Tech giant Apple are reportedly in talks with San Francisco startup Lit Motors, the creators of the extraordinary self-balancing electric motorcycle called the C-1.
Apple have already hired several former Lit engineers, and are also apparently in talks with Mclaren.
Lit Motors first appeared on our radar in 2012, promising a limited production run of the selfbalancing C-1 in 2014 at a price of $24,000 per unit, although at the time of writing – two years after the initial production date – it appears the company is stuck at the prototype phase.
Initially the firm claimed the C-1 would be capable of 120mph, with a range of 200 miles – way ahead of any current electric motorcycles on the market. But recent tests have so far only resulted in a top speed of 52mph.
The C-1: Apple’s next big thing?
