There are plenty of people fall in love their motorcycles, but at the top of the list is the they make, be it the unmistakable low that gives a hint of power or the inimitable whine of the as the rider turns the throttle. But and motorcycle-maker Suzuki Motor of Hamamatsu, Japan, recently the Crosscage, a prototype fuel-cell that will likely all the power of one of its classic crotch but with hardly any noise and of the harmful tailpipe emissions.

In fact, when the Crosscage, has a lithium-ion battery pack to extend its range between was rolled out at the Tokyo Motor last October, spectators the sound the bike makes to a computer. But the machine has much to it besides stealth.

Because a cell’s waste products are water and a little heat, the tailpipe emissions won’t to global warming. And those who that the quiet motorcycle be a weakling needn’t worry. The motor, mounted in the rear will provide full right at takeoff, so it’s not to imagine the Crosscage pulling off the starting line and leaving sized fossil fuel-powered in the dust.

Another attractive feature is Because the motor requires no there will be no need to the clutching and gear switching that befuddles most novices. Just hop on, start it up, the throttle, and cruise the open in silence.

So when will the stealth appear in dealer showrooms? not anytime soon. First there still remains the problem of auto-makers not wishing to fuel-cell vehicles prior to the of a hydrogen fueling infrastructure and companies being reluctant to in hydrogen refueling stations there being any cars to use them.

What’s more, Suzuki and Energy Holdings Plc. of United Kingdomwhich provided the fuel cell featured on the and its own proof-of-concept fuel-cell motorcycle, the Emissions Neutral Vehicle, or acknowledged that the Crosscage have to become much to build before production is up to commercial volumes. The companies that because motorcycles are than cars, they be able to turn out production for less than what it to produce fuel cell-powered But even if it has a much lower price than Honda’s FCX car, which costs auto-maker roughly a million dollars each (and for US $600 a month), chances are that, at least in the early you’ll be able to get several for the price you’d pay for one Crosscage.
