These pictures were snapped as Tom Montano lapped Infineon Raceway aboard the 150mph Mission One electric superbike. The bike was undergoing shakedown tests in preparation for its first competitive outing at the TTXGP on June 12. No word on how fast the Mission One was able to lap one of our all-time favorite circuits, but it looks like Tom's getting on it pretty hard -- check out the bobbled tires and fully compressed forks. It must be pretty exciting to wring out a near silent 100lb/ft of torque.
That torque figure is roughly equal to that of the Ducati 1098 R, but
available in full from just 1rpm. And we thought 62.5lb/ft was a lot
when we tested the Zero S electric supermoto, which won't compete with
the Mission One at the Isle of Man.
Still no info on what's hiding beneath the $68,995 Mission One's fully
enclosed fairing. Is it a bespoke frame or one borrowed from an
