I sense a disturbance in the force.

We’ve come a loooong way folks.  For all the detail go check out the excellent post at Asphalt and Rubber. An all electric motorcycle has finished second against a field of internal combustion engined racebikes.  (literbike v-twin – in the WERA Heavyweight Twins Superbike & Superstock race classes).  The video is interesting.  You can see the great torque characteristics of the bike.  But I find the electric whine tho be like fingernails on a chalkboard.  Earplugs would be mandatory.
