The world's sexiest electric bike?
24 December 2010 08:00
This is the Mission R electric race bike from US-based Mission Motors. They describe it as: "powerful, intelligent and downright fierce".
The top speed of 160mph is achieved via a 141bhp liquid-cooled 3-phase AC induction motor that puts out 115ftlb of torque.
The billet aluminum and chromoly frame is accompanied by GP-spec. components including Öhlins FGR-000 TTX25 gas-charged forks (with adjustment for preload, ride height, high and low speed compression and rebound) and Marchesini forged magnesium wheels.
Expect to see this bike in next year's TTXGP and IOM TT Zero.
