Fuel cell motorbike

If you are a fan of motorbikes, you'll probably be interested in the new fuel cell based bike called ENV (Emissions Neutral Vehicle) that has been designed by Intelligent Energy. Apart from having virtually no emissions, the bike is silent. No engine noise can be heard, which I think for most people interested in bikes is like what enjoyment no sound from the engine of a car would give to someone who likes cars.

In terms of technology, it's quite an achievement, looking at the specifications you'll find that it can acheive speeds of 50 miles per hour but maybe more with modifications and run for at least 100 miles without needing the cells to be recharged or swapped. It also looks quite nice, not very bulky and probably a lot lighter than a normal motorbike. Read the Rubber Magazine article for more information.
