UPDATE: READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE! Unveiled last Friday in India, this new Honda motorcycle features an air-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder 110cc engine, gets 164 mpg and will sell for $900 US! How do they do it? Volume! It will only be available in India (world’s second biggest motorcycle market) at the end of February, 2010.
Air Powered Motorcycles
A lot of hot air?
The 100cc bike runs on compressed air, goes 18km per hour and was designed by a team of engineering students form India, other than that there really isn’t many more details.
This is not the first time I have seen this concept in action, last year Jem Stansfield also created an air powered motorcycle that also goes 18km per hour. The issue with Stansfield’s creation is that the on-board compressor uses electricity.
