We recently came across a video showcasing a man named Ricardo Azevedo from Sao Paulo, Brazil, fuelling his motorcycle with water. The video shows that Ricardo’s revolutionary motorcycle is capable enough of covering 310 miles (500 kilometres) in a litre of water. Ricardo explains that his T Power H2O utilizes an external car battery that apart from producing electricity also performs the function of separating hydrogen from water molecules.  The result of the reaction comes out in form of energy that makes the motorcycle mobile.

As explained in the video below, Ricardo states, “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 vapour. This is different from gasoline, the result of which is carbon monoxide.”

On investigating further we found out that Ricardo is attracting motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world and has gained attention of masses.While a number of people have raised questions on the concept claiming that the external car battery utilized for the electrolytic process can never produce enough energy to keep the motorcycle moving for as long as 500 kilometres.  Ricardo answered all the question being raised on the battery’s capability by saying that the system utilized in his T Power H2O motorbike is similar to Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) which is used in Formula 1 that recharges the battery on the go. Though this system does not completely end eventual recharge need but helps the battery’s life significantly and hence helps bike to run for approx. 10 hours.
