FCM: Honda Patents Fuel Cell Motorcycle

Honda, in collaboration with Toyota and Nissan, is at work on advancing fuel cell technology for both cars and motorcycles. The partners, along with venture capital firms and energy companies, have adopted Japan’s “Strategic Road Map for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells.”

According to the German publication Motorrad, the plan was created by the Council for a Strategy for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, an industry body organized by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry. The Japanese government hopes to put 40,000 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles on the road and increase the number of hydrogen fueling stations in the to 160 by 2020. The new enterprise, founded by Honda but as yet unnamed, will be responsible for 80 new filling stations within the next four years.

Honda has yet to show a prototype of the fuel cell two-wheeler, but the accompanying patent application drawings indicate their direction. They show a standard sportbike configuration – perimeter frame, telescopic fork, shaft drive, etc. – with a hydrogen fuel cell housed under the seat. The fuel delivery system combines hydrogen with oxygen from the air, over a catalyst, to create electricity for the motor. The only byproduct is water.

Honda has been working on fuel cell cars for more than ten years, with the Clarity FCX the first such retail production vehicle in 2008. Output was sorely limited by the lack of filling stations, and the model was phased out in 2014. The second generation fuel cell Clarity was announced earlier this year, and shared the model name with an electric and plug-in hybrid version.

One advantage of hydrogen fuel cells is the much quicker refueling time compared to batteries. The primary disadvantages, aside from lack of infrastructure, are the safety issues involved in transporting and storing hydrogen and the cost of producing hydrogen from water by electrolysis. Looks like they’re seriously working on it, though.

FCM: Fuel Cell Motocycles: Linde H2 bike

The Linde H2 bike

Straight forward and easy to use
Riding is the same as for a conventional e-bike. Switch on the fuel cell and drive automatically kicks in if the peddle sensor detects that you need additional power. Even in case you should run out of fuel (after more than 100 km) you can always ride on without the auxiliary drive.

Quick refill and long range
The H2 Bike has a long range (100 km) and a short refuelling window of just a few minutes. Refuelling the bike doesn’t require visiting a filling station. You can do it easily at home in your garage with a mobile gas package including a Linde hydrogen GENIE cylinder.

Zero emissions with hydrogen from green sources
The Linde H2 bike runs on renewable hydrogen, made from electrolysis or biomass. Therefore it has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than conventional e-bikes.
