getting back to bikes... 6.94 sec @ 201 mph...
big deal... Since you don't need to be self sufficient and you're using nuclear and coal power plants for power, go the next step - make the bike twice as long, bolt together more rear wheels so you're still two wheeled. You can buy super conducting wire now and chill the motor with liquid helium, use 2 or 3 times as many batteries and you'll go faster. So what if you need a portable cyrogenics plant to run the thing, you don't measure how much power it takes to run it, just the power you can stuff in batteries. Once the rear tire is 3 feet wide you might not need a kick stand anymore.

Thee just is not any comparison to something that makes it's own power. Race cars are the most efficient power generators humans have devised. The vehicles you're posting are incredible rubber band devices...

45Kw DC Brushless motor construction

Impressive motor considering the basic equipment he used.

Can you actually purchase a new one? I can only seem to find the one bike. Interesting machine and a sign of things to come, but if it's a one off, it's not really a production bike. When it comes to modified street bikes, a 500hp + turbo Hyabusa can be built for less. (and not much will keep up with that)

I'm pretty sure that Very Large cargo ship Diesel engines have all race engines beat, they have sub-.30 lb/hp/hr BSFCs. There are probably some land-based coal or natural gas fired boilers that are even more efficient but I don't have data on them.

unlike the Tesla which is the quickest (2.5 sec to 60+) Mass Production vehicle in the world right now... https://www.tesla.com/en_CA/blog/new-te ... edirect=no

both the Lighting and Rimac are low production made to order vehicles right now... http://lightningmotorcycle.com/reserve-now/

thats neat for sure, been looking into the high perf elc power plants to see what possible to buy for a elc conversion...

also seen the 2 fastest cars at Pikes Peak were ELECTRIC too... http://www.autoblog.com/2015/06/28/2015 ... b-results/

I like the home built motor I linked to because it has good proportions for a motorcycle or position in-line with a wheel or axle.

I have built an electric bike and found it to be a lot of fun but too limited on range even with a 1000 watt motor and 48v 24 amp hour battery it is at 50% after only 10 minutes riding.

Next time I will use LiPo batteries (not LiIon) and not less than 10 HP (7500 watts).

I built a Battle bot for my kids that is 8HP (2 motors), it uses LiPo batteries, and works great.

I'll be much more impressed with Tesla when they become a self-supporting company

I think you can forget much of the current stuff soon, that you know now, because of simple cheap leaps of technology, which are under way already. He takes out a lithium pack and replaces it, with something much smaller and lighter.

The same day I saw that video I saw a news story from a major University saying a simple doping of the same material with nitrogen increased the power of that material. by 2 orders of magnitude= 100 times.

Apply the same material from stem to stern, and it might not weigh 25-50 pounds. And all at extremely dirt cheap costs. It can create cheap energy in ways people can not even imagine.

This electric bike is very impressive from an engineering performance numbers standpoint.It is heavy at 500 pounds......... I ride bikes and they are not cars....The thrill is from the mechanics of the machine and how well the rider controls the shifting and so on...Take that away ... a bike becomes just another push the throttle and go.........
As for performance on the street...Currently they are about 20 gas engine production bikes cable of 10 second 1/4 mile times with an expert rider...About 5 of the 20 can dip into the high 9's. About 4 are 600 cc and run mid 10's.. All can exceed 150 MPH and some are near 200 MPH...None of these bikes cost more than $16,000..

I previously thought the same, but them I rode an electric bike.
It is the most enjoyable vehicle I have ever driven.
Not paying attention to the power-band and shifting allows the mind to focus on other things.
The near silence and lack of vibration reminded me of flying in a glider.
It's a different kind of pleasure.

I would like to ride something more powerful.

We all like different things...I don't ride long distance ...I ride for shorter periods and a bike takes me away from the real world with it's overwhelming mechanical presence. It's what my signature just below says....

This VW electric "Bad Boy" just smoked the 8 second record at Pikes Peak (Run what Ya Brung) in 7 minutes, 53 seconds! =D>
