So, what happened to the claims of 150 mph? (Ahem, Mission and MotoCzysz.)

I'm not a big believer in electric motorcycles given the current battery technology, but I did get interested in this event, especially since MotoCzysz showed up with such a beautifully-finished bike and the Mission entry didn't look like a SoHo cheese grater (although it did have crappy paint and logos). Unfortunately, the MotoCzysz didn't even make it to the first checkpoint before it expired and the Mission bike only averaged about 76 mph.

When are these people going to learn that making wildly optimistic claims isn't going to fool people into believing that their bike is a viable competitor to current bikes? It just makes them look like charlatans and damages their cause.

Clean emmissions? For a closed coarse race trake never made sence to me. Another reason I'll never agree with the move from two strokes to four strokes in what is now called MotoGp.
