As compared to their gasoline counterparts, electric motors have near-instant torque and linear power delivery, both important qualities when pushing a motorcycle to the limits of grip. Motherboard recently got to see just how effective the electric RS could be when we were given a demo by a former pro racer around a private race track in upstate New York.
Given the slow growth of the electric vehicle market and resultant charging infrastructure—it’s about as straightforward a chicken-egg scenario as one can get—can high-end electric vehicles break the stalemate? That’s been Tesla’s plan, with a goal of not just building electric cars, but better cars. Mission’s plan is similar—build the best electric bike possible, and those that can afford it won’t have to worry about compromises. For EV builders, it’s important to prove to the market that electric vehicles can compete, something the RS does well. But the huge question is when the technology will trickle down to cheaper models and more potential buyers.

I WANT ONE OF THESE SO BAD. ELECTRIC FTW
There are things that you know you shouldn’t do, I find myself time and time again gravitating towards those things. someone once said its better to regret the things you’ve done rather than the regret the things you would have done. Now… in this particular situation I dont regret what I did, its actually what I should have done that I regret. lending itself to the perfect storm of regret in not doing something, and not doing something I should have done. Pretty confusing?!, basically what this all means is… I shouldn’t have jumped my Ducati Monster. There is a reason why you don’t see a lot of Ducatis flying through space. These Ducs don’t fly.
