Video: Quantya electric supermoto in action

Quantya_Supermoto.JPGWe’ve waited eagerly for the Quantya Supermoto ever since we rode the Quantya Strada around my loft last September. Now it’s here and, equipped with a more powerful 48V motor, it’ll hit 69mph, putting it on par with the Zero S. Check out the action video below and look out for the non-ironic use of a star wipe.

    Was I hoping for too much when I thought there was going to be a drag race when the 1098 showed up?

    Wes, do you know where this vidja is from? Its very scenic.

      Looks like Switzerland to me, where Quantya is based.

    Wow! The only thing Zero did wrong is not making the S’ promos nearly this exciting. The Quantya looks supremely sharp and fun. Any word on this one’s range?

    However, Star Wipe: shades of Flanders’ dating video.

    At least these guys got the styling right… I wish Zero would make their sm look as good.

    Is it bad that i want one for the sole reason that it sounds like a TIE-Fighter?

    all i have to say is… WEAK !

    That bike looks quite capable. Or that rider is capable. In any case, a very nice machine. Enjoy all the exposure to ebikes on this website

    Hey just bump it up to 96V and I think you’d be good for about a buck thirty.

    it sounds like a skateboard, which is nice for a skateboard… but not so nice for a motorcycle!

    Seeing that nice stand-up wheelie in the beginning was the first time I actually got a little excited about electric motorcycles.

    It’ll be an interesting future once batteries get more smaller and more powerful.
