NARO - Motorcycle-car
Is this a narrow car or a wide motorcycle ? According to The Narrow Car Company, it's neither, or both ... any way you want it. The motorcycle-car is being developed in Wales, UK, and is called the NARO.

The NARO motorcycle-car is their solution for overcrowding roads, pollution, time wasting, parking problems, etc. etc. etc. The NARO is a two seater configured like a motorcycle, ie, the passenger sits behind the rider, but unlike a motorcycle, it has four wheels. The motorcycle-car has special banking action which will prevent it from tipping over when cornering Rossi-style.

The NARO can be equipped with protection such as airbags and ABS. Since you're enclosed, you will not get wet, nor will the bugs sting your face...

The NARO is 2.50 meters (2.7 yards) long with a width of only 1 meter (1.07 yard) and weights some 300 Kgs (661 pounds). Performance is not bad at all, since you can do the 0-60 mph in 12 seconds, while top speed is 85 mph (137 kph - remember it's a city vehicle). Expected fuel consumption is 100 mpg (2.35 liters/100 kms). To achieve this, the NARO is equipped with a 400 cc single engine, developing 20 bhp.

The Narrow Car Company is envisaging three types of NAROs; an executive version, a taxi version and a delivery version.

NARO Taxi - Motorcycle-car NARO Delivery - Motorcycle-car NARO Pizza Delivery - Motorcycle-car NARO AA - Motorcycle-car
