The Ecomobile is a motorcycle built by a Swiss company named Pereaves. It's basically a motorcycle with body encompassing the entire bike, protecting the rider from wind, rain, and debris.

Safety is the main issue addressed by this motorcycle. The body is made from Kevlar carbon fiber, the same stuff they make bullet proof vests out of. Dan Whitfield, who runs an Ecomobile dealership in the USA, believes its the future of personal transportation.
"If you're driving a normal motorcycle and you strike a deer at night, you're in trouble. (With) this vehicle, if you strike another vehicle, your survivability chances are 200 percent better than on a motorcycle."
200 percent better is just a more impressive way saying that its only 3 times better.

The cager-motorcycle is powered by a 1200cc BMW engine and gets about 50 mpg, which is not any better than most motorcycles out there. It has air conditioning and a stereo. But it costs $80,000.

My point is "why bother?" If you want safety, gas mileage, and comfort, then get a hybrid car.
