Mission Motors has finally taken the wraps off its Mission R electric race bike last month. The bike features a 14.4 kWh battery pack and a 3-phace AC induction motor that makes 100 kW and 115 pound feet of torque from 0 to 6500 rpm. The Mission R is capable of reaching a top speed of 160 mph and has regenative braking. Taking lessons learned from the Misison One, Mission Motors has built the Mission R from the ground-up, and tapped some well known names to help the company make this striking motorcycle.

The chassis of the Misison R was designed by James Parker, who explains his work: „In designing an electric motorcycle, geometries and packages need to be very much analogous to those in a ‘conventional’ motorcycle, but the components are very different. Since the electric components need to work with, and fit within relatively conventional geometries and packages, there is a lot of re-thinking to do.”
