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.
