Long Beach, CA
We had a demonstrator MonoTracer in the Long Beach, CA area, from 4/11 until 4/18. While in the area, AutoWeek Magazine did a test-drive and feature story on the MonoTracer. In addition, the MonoTracer was on display at the Long Beach Grand Priz, and in fact, did a lap of the race track just before the start of the IndyCar race. Finally, numerious interested parties took test-rides in the MonoTracer. _________________
DAYTONA BEACH, FL
The X-Tracer, along with a MonoTracer from Atlanta, and an EcoMobile from Pennsylvannia attended Bike Week at Daytona Beach Florida, from March 8th thru the AMA Superbike races on March 12th. Numerous individuals which are considering purchasing a MonoTracer took test-rides in one or more of the vehicles. The response from those of the 500,000 Bike Week participants which happened to see the vehicles was very favorable; even the "Harley-guys" were impressed!
The X-Tracer participated in the Festivals of Speed event held during the weekend of March 5th & 6th. We were able to take a number of interested parties for a test-ride in the X-Tracer, and the X-Tracer won the Motorcycle "Spirit" award from the event. www.FestivalOfSpeed.com
The X-Tracer was on display at the 2011 Washington (DC) Auto Show (http://www.washingtonautoshow.com/) at the Washington Convention Center from January 28th thru February 6th. We were able to show the vehicle to a few government officials, and we also had quite a few industry personnel stop by to check it out.
The X-Tracer was on display at the North American International Auto Show ( http://naias.com/) in Detroit from January 10th thru the 14th. These days are media- and press-ONLY days, HOWEVER, the X-Tracer was in the main lobby, which was accessible to the general public at NO COST. We had a number of local area MonoTracer fans and friends stop by.
LAS VEGAS, NV
During the first week of November, the X-Tracer and a MonoTracer were in Las Vegas. The X-Tracer was on display in the Vehicle Technology Lab exhibit at the SEMA show. The MonoTracer was our primary means of transportation to and from the show, and was available for inerested parties to see and possibly ride in.
The X-Tracer was on display at the Art Center Car Classic '10 Freedom of Motion event at the Pasadena Art Center Collage of Design on Sunday October 17th.
LOS ANGELES, CA
The first California MonoTracer made a run through all the L.A. 'hot spots': Sunset Blvd., Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Street Promenade, and of course, a spirited ride down Mulholland Drive to the world famous Rock Store. Los Angeles area residents and tourist welcomed the MonoTracer with thumbs UP, and cameras flashing!
Possibly the most fun (AND most utilitarian use of the MonoTracer) occurred during a rush-hour run from Santa Monica to San Dimas.... in the rain. Given California lane-splitting laws, the MonoTracer was PERFECT for getting through traffic quickly, and still arriving for a business meeting dry and comfortable.
SANTA MONICA, CA
The X-Tracer was on display at the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica on October 1st and 2nd. We had a MonoTracer there also, and gave demonstration rides to a number of interested parties.

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!
