World’s Fastest EV Motorcycle

At the time of this writing the soon to be released Mission One motorcycle is set to be the fastest mass produced electric powered motorcycle in the world. Just like the bikes themselves, preorders are going fast so you’ll have to sign up now if you want to be an original owner. The website says:

We are now accepting reservations for the Premier Limited Edition of the Mission One, limited to 50 numbered units to be delivered in 2010.

At $68,995 these bikes aren’t cheap but the performance is definitely there, especially when compared to a few other EV bikes we’ve seen recently. The ZERO Motorcycle (pictured below) comes to mind… Rather than just offering a pure road bike as Mission One is doing, the ZERO comes in two flavors of on and off road. Both bikes are limited to 60mph top speed and 60 mile range but the bike only costs around $8,950 after federal tax credits.

That’s not a bad deal, but if you feel the need for speed it might not be enough.

By contrast, the Mission One motorcycle (pictured below) can reach top speeds of 150mph and is capable of traveling 150 miles per charge!

The Mission One Motorcycle is the Tesla Roadster of electric powered bikes with its high pricetag and sexy design. Its racing circuit grade components and Yves Béhar modeling are sure to turn heads. Still one question remains, with its silent speed will will the worlds fastest EV motorcycle also be its most dangerous? or will there be a motor sound synthesizer built in as we have seen on a few performance sports cars?

We contacted Mission One and posed the following question

Mission Motors One Premier Edition

EV Authority: We are doing a story on the Mission One for and have a question for you. Will the bike have some sort of sound synthesizer to enhance the level of safety for its rider? By comparison to louder internal combustion motorcycles the Mission One will not only be small but also silent which makes it exceedingly dangerous.

Are there other safety features that are being added to help protect riders?

Mission One: Thank you for your inquiry about the noise of our motorcycle. To date, no studies have been shown that vehicle sound decreases the frequency of accidents. We take the position that motorcyclist safety is the primary responsibility of the individual rider.

Awareness of their environment and making wise decisions while operating our vehicle or any other is paramount to safe motorcycle riding.
