For the environmentally-minded person on your gift list, we’ve got something to park in the garage beside the Tesla Model S. San Fran-based Mission Motorcycles has been working on its Mission R for a while, and it’s now ready for the public.
Mission’s InifiteDrive powertrain claims an output of 160 hp with a whopping 120 ft-lb. of torque available on the first rpm. According to Mission, this is enough to propel the electric sportbike to a top speed of 150 mph.
For $42,499, you get the 17-kWh battery which Mission claims offers a range of 140 miles while travelling at a highway-worthy speed of 70 mph. The Mission R also qualifies for a $2,500 federal tax break. Of course, you could also put that towards the $2,750 tech package which adds an HD camera, GPS navigator and wireless helmet HUD support.
