Mission unveils 160mph electric racer

The sexiest zero emission motorcycle ever?

US ZERO EMISSION company Mission Motorcycles has just unveiled their latest racer: the Mission R.

With a claimed power output of 140bhp and a reported top speed of 160mph, Mission says the R is the most 'advanced electric racing motorcycle in the world.'

The liquid-cooled AC Induction motor produces 115 ft. lbs. of torque, via the MissionEVT 100kW motor controller, complete with customisable regenerative braking maps, throttle maps and more. All vehicle and ride data is accessible via WiFi or 3G connections.

Pricing and availability for the custom-made machine has yet to be announced.

Bit of a knuckle-biter, eh?
