According to Motorcycle News, these are official Lotus renderings of the upcoming C-01 motorcycle.

Lotus Motorcycles was founded less than a year ago and will enter this segment with a bang as the C-01 looks as if it was taken straight from a Mad Max movie. Matching the aggressive looks will allegedly be a V-twin liquid-cooled engine sourced from the KTM RC8R which will be tuned to deliver approximately 200 bhp (149 kW).

Lotus has previously described the C-01 as a "hyper bike" with design being inspired by the Lotus 49 racecar. It will allegedly feature a carbon fiber monocoque and in these renders we notice what appears to be an exposed carbon fiber weave and a considerably wide tire at the back.

Hopefully Lotus will share more details about the motorcycle in the near future as they haven't said anything about the C01 since June last year when they released a teaser photo.
