KillaCycle electric drag bike

This is what happens when you put two six and a half inch electric motors in a motorcycle, power them with a 1575 amp, 375 volt, 7.5 kW/hr battery pack and head down to the drag strip.

The Killacycle is the world’s quickest electric motorcycle. It is powered by a total of 990 A123 Systems M1 lithium ion cells and has a power output of over 350 horsepower. With a 0 – 100kph time of about 1.4 seconds and a quarter mile time of 8.168 seconds it is an impressive example of the motive power of electricity. Add in the fuel cost of 10 cents per quarter mile run and you have a real winner.
