First Look: Mission One electric motorcycle
Take a gander at the Mission One, the plug-in electric motorcycle from Mission Motors
. With a 150-mile range and a top speed of 150 silent miles per hour, all wrapped up in a Yves Béhar design, the Mission One isn't a crotch rocket—it's a crotch whisper.
In a good way. (I'm not much of a copywriter.)
Price? For the first 50 "Premier Limited Edition Mission One" bikes you'll be dropping $69,000. (Yes.) Availability? Early 2010. Gears? One continuously winding CVT. Recharge time? Look, we're in excitement mode here, not practicality mode. That'll come soon enough. (But I have the answer anyway: 2 hours on 240V; 8 hours on 120V.)
