Powered by a BMWK1200R, 130-horsepower engine, the Swiss-made Peraves MonoTracer is a fully-enclosed car/sportsbike hybrid that costs a mere US$70,000. What you get for your money is an avant-garde machine that’s capable of 52-degrees of lean, that will accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 5.7 seconds and that can hit a top speed of 250km/h.
While speed and acceleration are all very well, the MonoTracer’s party trick is its retractable stabilizer wheel. Dive into a corner at 150km/h and this deploys in less than half a second, allowing the machine to lean up to 52 degrees – considerably more than what most superbikes ever do on the road!
Apart from sheer performance, the two-seater, 470kg MonoTracer comes fitted with a heating and ventilation system (an AC is optional), cruise control, ABS, and anti-spin control – all of which offer more comfort and safety than your average litre-class superbike.
