Mission-RS

$60,000, 160bhp, 120lb/ft. Remember the Mission R? It’s now called the Mission RS and it has a headlight. There’s plans for a cheaper, $30,000 model to follow. Wired has the scoop.

    Soooo Mission Motorcycles ≠ Mission Motors?

    Brings back fond memories of the time Skadamo and got to ride the Mission One back in 2010.

    So who wants to do a Kickstarter to buy one and proceed to take turns dogging it??

    Seriously though, the amount of breakthrough this thing has is crazy. I watched the Mission R tear up Laguna Seca a few years ago after the Moto GP race and it was amazing to see it do what it was doing. The quite whine compared to the GP machines was obviously night and day, but when you hear the rider scrape knee puck the whole way around the corner as he is going as fast as some of the AMA guys over any sound of an engine, that just messes with your mind. For them to come out and sell one, if it is near to what I witnessed that day, is just awesome. $60K is steep, but the low production numbers and amount of competitiveness it offers is well worth the price. Hopefully we get to see it ridden hard in the canyons with a nice review to follow once it does hit the streets.
