Mission RS, the world’s fastest electric bike, touches 60mph in 3 seconds

Common automotive belief associates fast cars and motorcycles with gas-power. The Mission RS proves otherwise. Crowned the fastest electric motorcycle on the face of this speed-loving planet, the Mission RS is unlike any electric motorcycle we’ve had the privilege to see, ride or hear of before. This one requires no gas-power and uses its energy efficient insides to pump adrenaline through you. With zero emissions and inexpensive maintenance, this motorcycle was developed by San Francisco-based Mission Motors. Sporting a 160 horsepower (120 kW) electric motor that produces 133 pound-feet of torque, the Mission RS is built on the prototype Mission R, known to have left its competitors in the dust at the TTXGP race at Laguna Seca.

Using a 17 kWh li-ion cell capable of recharging in just two hours, this superbike zips ahead at a whopping 150mph and touches the 60mph benchmark in below 3 seconds! The bike is scheduled to hit showrooms soon and has an eye-popping price tag of $60,000. While the Mission RS might seem expensive to the untrained eye, it does work out as an inexpensive way to race ahead in the long run.
