Ricardo Azevedo created the 'T Power H20' which travelled 310 miles on one litre of water

A motorcyclist has has created a motorbike powered by water, with the ability to travel as far as 310 miles on just one litre of water.

Ricardo Azevedo, from Sao Paulo, Brazil, claims the 'T Power H20', as it has been dubbed, can even run on polluted river water.

The bike utilises a single external car battery to produce electricity to separate hydrogen from the water molecules, with the entire process resulting in combustion, which creates energy that powers Azevedo's motorbike.

While riders' wallets would appreciate not having to pay for petrol, the bike could also have a highly positive impact on the environment.

Azevedo said: "The advantage of this motorcycle, which works with the hydrogen that comes from the water, is that the result that comes out of the exhaust is water vapour. This is different from gasoline, which the result is carbon monoxide."

Azevedo reveals the entire process in an online video, which can be seen below, showing how the budding inventor fills the bike with regular bottled water first, but later fills the bike with polluted river water to show that the bike can run on either source.

Check out the video below.
