ELECTRIC DIRTBIKE????

3 posts in this topic

Anyone see the article on the electric dirtbike in this weeks Cycle News??? I know Scott (the designer and builder) and he is a great guy. He likes to tinker with stuff and his invention does not suprise me.

What do you think??

Hey,

What's the link to that article? Is it available online...I was just thinking about an electric bike the other day. Guess it'll be a while until they can get the horses that the 426 has but could be pretty cool

thanks,

J

If you don't think that electric can be fast then check this out:

Assuming that this page is accurate then the electric motorcycle 1/4 mile record is 9.450 seconds @152.07 mph . Fast indeed!

I'm guessing that getting batteries to hold enough juice for one moto without weighing more than the truck that pulls the trailer is going to be the trick.
