Peraves MonoTracer

The MonoTracer is essentially an 'enclosed motorcycle'. It has "landing gear" that is brought down to stabilize the vehicle when it stops or is at slow speeds. Once going, the operator retracts the gear, and the MonoTracer can lean up to 52 degrees in a turn. There are two MonoTracer models, both based on a very strong DuPont Kevlar® composite monocoque, or "fuselage".

The MT i1200 is powered by a fuel-injected BMW 1200cc gas engine. It goes from 0 to 60 in just over 5 seconds, and has an electronically limited top speed of 155 MPH. It gets over 50 mpg at highway speeds.

The fully battery-electric MT e150 is expected to be available some time in June 2012, and will be powered by the AC Propulsion 150kW electric motor. The MT e150 provides the same great performance, same feel & fun of the MT i1200, but gets over 300 MPGe highway, and has NO engine noise! With no engine noise, no clutching, no shifting, and TONS of torque, the MT-150 is a pleasure, and a thrill, to drive!
