With a little bit of knowledge in mechanics and a lot of fantasy, this Brazilian inventor has created a motorcycle that can run on water!
This Public officer named Ricardo Azevedo from Sao Paolo, Brazil invented his water-powered motorcycle or what he calls the “Motor Power H20″.
Ricardo has transformed his 1993 Honda NX 200 into this innovative motorcycle creation that can run for about 300 miles in a single liter of water.
The motorcycle uses a car battery to produce electricity, and by the process of electrolysis, separates hydrogen from water molecules.
“This device breaks apart the water molecules transforming it into oxygen and hydrogen. The hydrogen comes out in larger quantities and then I use this hydrogen to run the motorcycle engine,” Ricardo explained.
What’s even more impressive is that instead of carbon monoxide coming out of the exhaust pipe, this motorcycle release water vapor, which would help reduce air pollution.
“The advantage of this motorcycle, which works with the hydrogen that comes from the water, is that the result that comes of the exhaust is water vapor,” he said.
“This is different from gasoline, the result of which is carbon monoxide,” he added.
This “Motor Power H20” can use any types of water, whether it’s clean or not, drinking water or polluted water.
He even made a demonstration on how the motorcycle works using polluted water from a nearby river.
“To my surprise, the polluted water from the Tietê River worked as much as the clean water. So, now I use the polluted water as fuel in my motorcycle,” he added.
Ricardo believes that this invention could entirely change the transportation industry
“I’ve made contact with the dealership and a qualified mechanic will conduct and assess the tests. I am also willing to explain and demonstrate the system for those who are interested,” he said.’
