Remember the days when you learned to ride a bike? The toughest (and seemingly impossible) part was to get the whole assembly to stay balanced on two wheels. The modern electronics is catching up with human balancing skills and that gives birth to LIT Motor's self-balancing motorcycle prototype: LIT-C1. The company's put electronically operated gyroscopes in the motorcycle to let you focus on the roads. The engineering masterminds at LIT have just released the working prototype of LIT-C1 that expects to make it to the showrooms near you in 2014 and cost about $16000.

Currently the speed of the C1 prototype has been limited to 16 kmph (10 mph) and it deploys 1,763 Nm torque producing gyroscopes. The production motorcycle will have gyroscopes producing twice that torque and top speed of 201 kmph (125 mph). It will be fully operated by battery and according to Daniel Kim, CEO of LIT; the bike will have a range of about 322 kilometers ( 200 miles). It'll also accomodate second passenger.
