That thing sounds super sweet. I really wish someone would step up and give us a feasible electric motorcycle with 150 hp that is capable of decent range (400 miles would be nice, but 200 would be acceptable) for less than $20K. I would never buy one, but like having a girlfriend while being married, it is always a nice option to think about.

Default Re: Recharging?

Not such a big deal, prob'ly...



They're discharging them for maybe 12 seconds, including burnout. So what if it takes an hour to jam them back up?



The latest Car & Driver has an article about electric drags. The lead "character" has an old Datsun with siamesed forklift motors.



They say the weirdest part is that there is no noise, except the tires.

And I STILL haven't heard anything from him that indicates (or doesn't) that he's a real person.

According to Gizmag.com, range is 7 runs (2 miles) and recharge time is 10 minutes.


So with 100 times the battery mass, you'd get 200 miles between 17-hour recharges. Still some development work to be done I'd say.
