Mission Motors first out of stealth mode, they the slogan “The World’s Electric Production Sportbike”. and a top speed of a 150 mph. It seems logical then, that the would have to back claim up at some point, and that time is now.

week we showed you a simple video entitled: “Electric 160 MPH”. and now we know the story that 160 mph run, and can report the Mission One electric motorcycle is the production electric motorcycle in the with an official land record of 150.059 mph. and more after the jump.

Mission Motors was indeed at the Bub Week motorcycle event at the Salt Flats earlier month. With their fairings ” on the Mission One, Motors was indeed able to the 160 mph mark on a single-pass run. But in to achieve a land speed a return pass must be in order to compensate for any windage may have occurred on the first

Under gusty cross and with poor salt the Mission One achieved an AMA Top Speed with a 150.059 mph two-pass run, under the Bonneville mile. Compare that to the 173 mph run of the Norton NRV588 wonderbike, and you can to better assess the level of that the Mission One is achieving as a prototype.

After shattering the previous electric motorcycle land record, Mission Motors has not opened the door for the electric speed wars (are you this MotoCzysz?), but also a lot of perceptions in the LSR realm. We look to seeing the speed trials in the next year, margarita mix in
