Mission Motorcycles Makes 150.059 MPH Electric Record @ Bonneville

Posted in Exotics by Me on November 3, 2009

Mission Motors keeps gaining more and more of my respect. Not only do they have an extremely interesting understanding of how to approach the electric motorcycle question, but they also make a damned fast electric motorcycle. Too bad it costs so much.

Worlds First TTXGP in Less Than a Month!

Posted in Exotics, Motorsports by Me on May 14, 2009

The first TTXGP at the Isle of Man kicks off on the 12 of June and I can’t wait! This has the potential to be a über interesting kick in the pants for the two-wheeled alternative energy vehicles, not to mention the alternative energy industry in general. (more…)

The EV-Orr

Lotus EV-0rr

This is the EV-0rr, designed by Xenophia Designs, and developed by Lotus and Evo Design Solutions. If they make a street version of this bike that retails for less than $20,000 this will be the future of motorcycles. For now we will have to make due with drooling over the illustrations. Eventually we’ll be watching it at the TTXGP and then, maybe, riding one. More at Hell for Leather Magazine.

My, What a Lovely Family

I love this bike, in any form. I sat on one at the International Motorcycle Show in January: super comfortable. I want one. I would buy one right now if I had the cash laying around.

Absolutely Beautiful

Watch the ongoing evolution

This used to be a Multstrada, easily Ducati’s ugliest bike. Now it is gorgeous. You can see more here (here for babelized English).

I want this.

If I were to go out and buy a race-replica bike next year, I think it would be this one.
