A similar dispute happened when the first cars started getting faster than horses...

I'm a bike guy ....and when my internal combustion engine runs low on fuel I pull into a gas station...3 minutes later it's good for few hours of riding ............

Same statement was probably said:
Pikes peak is not a good example, the change in the air density top to bottom is only going to skew a result towards the carburetor cars (when fuel injection showed up).

It's just what new technology dose, it hurts but true.

Interesting, to some, but not relevant to the Engine Tech section. If you don't love all that encompasses engines, sight, sound, smell, performance, perhaps another forum would better suit your needs.

What difference does it make how fast the electric bike is, it's still electric. No matter what you build steam, electric, IC engine, jet, rocket, someone has always built something faster or is about to.

It's 495 pounds and $38 grand by press release,I'll wait til I see a store bought production test before I buy any stock.

Not that is has any soul to speak of,nor range.
Nor is gas going anywhere this century.
Half the costs in the petro industry are taxes,half the savings in EVs are derived from subsidies.When Uncle Sugar finds out he can tax EV fill-ups he will.
Did I mention it has no soul?

I wonder what a V4 2 stroke using modern technology would put out?I know it would weigh half that weight.And sound better.

Cool find though,definitely relevant.

Hopefully I'll still get one in my lifetime...

Lack of engine sound is big bummer though... just like girls, loud bikes are more fun when in action...

the electric turbine motor sound is there/a non issue, naturally its just not as loud as gas but/and can be amplified for those who need it. Formula E teams have been testing diffrent versions

i like the diffrent elc turbine sounds...

No, I understand..... I can hold my 60 HP modified vintage Triumph bike engine with 50 miles worth of fuel 100 mph of fuel in my arms ( about 110 pounds)...And that's old technology...Electric vehicles are always tied into the electric grid when recharging......They are always on a leash so to speak...

Solar cells or not the vehicle is down for a time while recharging...And a roof of photo cells is very expensive and actually put out very little power so the charging time will be quite long...
There is no free lunch with electric or internal combustion...
