Suzuki goes to the moon
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:25:08 PM »

This is kind of different for a motorcycle company to be doing. Suzuki plans to help fund a private exploration of the moon.  (I guess this is cheaper then trying to develop and market an electric motorcycle:   ;)  )

They've been working on a "hydrogen hybrid-electric" powertrain, if patent documents are not misleading. Maybe they want to mine hydrogen from the moon.  :P


Seriously, this is bizarre. Suzuki needs to save itself right now.
