This motorbike runs on WATER!

A motorcycle able to travel up to 500 kilometres (310 miles) on a litre of water was trumpeted by creator Ricardo Azevedo in Sao Paulo,

Why not using the original gas tank when it doesn't need it anymore? ;)

Is just to good to be true.

The waters in Brazil where the 2016 summer Olympic and Paralympic athletes have to compete in swimming and boating are so polluted with raw sewage and viruses that many who have been training in Reo have already become violently sick. Just look at the nasty filth he filled his water jug with. Maybe the engine actually runs on crap. :D

That was a great explanation i suppose. Would be even better if i understood spanish.

Yawn... Seen it all before... Amazing top secret technology that the owner claims he would be killed if he showed anyone how it worked...

#5 I think the oil companies would hate it if he posted the blueprints on the internet

So he's leaking one liter of coolant every 500km. :P

The engine sounds rather like...an engine. You know, the internal combustion type. Unless he's turning water into hydrogen and oxygen (requires power!) there's something else besides water used as a propellant.

Since the video explains nothing I must remain skeptical.

#1 can not be the original deposit you must extract the hydrogen from water with electricity. the hydrogen is flammable and moves the piston. not found a video in English because it was the Brazilians who have discovered. #4 (not spanish) but its not dificult to visually understand.. O:) HHO as fuel in our vehicles. In a water molecule there are two hydrogen atoms and one atom of oxygen, it is very simple. H20 + O = 2H thys guy it from my contry :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbP5YcsAAyE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X4NUMDxebo #5 no true

#8 Well if you want to extract the hydrogen from water you have to spend energy, and since i dont see a ton of solarpanels im asuming hes using a battery. That energy is the same as you release when burning the hydrogen, reverting it to water vapor. But the extra heat means an energy loss so wouldnt it be better to skip the combustion and just use an electric motor?

I would love to know who these people are trying to attract. Investors can see through this.

#9 Physics says that to create energy, will always spend a higher power. but you have the alternator to charge the battery and exhaust leaves very little carbon monoxide. but you are right because electricity is a clean energy I was just trying to clarify the comments #4 #5 #6 nothing more <3 nobody reads my boring comments #11 #12

And money grows on TREES!

Complete horse pucky. The only way to extract energy from water is to crack it into hydrogen and oxygen. The energy required to do that exceeds the energy gained from combusting the resulting hydrogen.

So absent an input of energy from elsewhere into the system (such as the aforementioned big solar panels you don't see), that bike is not running on water. This is a complete fraud.

I think it's a Pantone engine.

So it's absolutely not using water as fuel, but as always news reporters did a great job >:)

The main idea is to evaporate water thanks to the heat in the exhaust, then send this vapor to the cylinders.

Some people did this transformation to car, so far it's still working.

Expanding on #3 explanation a little, My theory is that the rivers in Portugal, Brazil, Spain or what ever country we decide he is from, are pure petroleum, simple!! >:)

Jake , I judge that you did not read the sub-title....he is in Sao Paulo which is in Brazil. (i) :D

#17 Unfortunately my religion (I'm a None Believing Creational Subtitlest) prevents me from reading and believing subtitles. I also do not believe any place that I haven't been to actually exists, which makes my spare time job of a NBCS producer of atlases maps and side roads much easier than it could be as a believer. Just the way it is SUXi bu!! Twiddle twiddle keep the faith >:)

#8 is right, but this isn't new technology.
#9 is rigth too, it would be better to use electric motor. But this is an adaptation to reuse existing internal combustion motors.
Water isn't a energy source. In this case it's a vehicle for the energy, from battery to internal combustion motor.
