Let's see how it fairs at IOMTT next year.
Until then - - no credibility above a smart car - which is actually a stupid car.

Until I see John McGuinness or Guy Martin even look in the direction of it, it belongs in Jay Leno's garage with all the other weirdass .

This whole concept is an affront to the almighty combustion engine and I hate it.
IMO. You are just being closed minded. And you probably have NO basis to make that conclusion. As far as I'm concerned you have no idea what your talking about.


There was another video I watched where they raced in the E-Series of Laguna Seca. Their qualifying time would have put them in 5th of the 600cc class race. And was only 10 seconds slower that the GP bikes. Im going to say that if any bad GP rider was on that bike... It would be pretty competitive.

John mcguinness has raced on electric sportbikes...

While I do love combustion engines, electric motors are impressive and eventually their performance will surpass combustion engine packages.

Go to track 21, then go to K1...then tell me electric motors don't compare.

You can hate all you want but the performance is there. Range and price is the only thing stopping these electric bikes. An electric bike beat the gas powered ones at Pikes Peak. I'll always love traditional motors for the variety and the sound. I wonder how the motorcycle world would change if electric motorcycles caught on? You probably wouldn't need to buy another bike ever unless you wanted a different style. Your electric ZX-10 could be a 300, 600 or a 1000 just by adjusting the electric motor.
