The engine comes with a bore of 105 mm and stroke of 69mm, and with the touch of Kodewa’s hands, the engine now has a total output of almost 200 hp. The power is transfered the rear wheel through chain final drive, six-speed gearbox and wet hydraulic clutch.

The C-01’s stunning bodywork was designed by Daniel Simon, the creator of the Tron LightCycle, while its geometry and construction is the creation of the Holzer Group. Its body is wrapped in a carbon fairing with openings for the crankcase cover, air intake and an exhaust outlet.
