World's Most Advanced Electric Motorcycle

This is the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc:
It packs 10 times the battery capacity of a Toyota Prius and 2.5 times the torque of a Ducati 1198 into a package that looks like something out of a 24th-century Thunderdome.
This year’s all-new 2010 E1pc is too--out front, that is, not broken down. During practice this week, it reached a top speed of 140 MPH—besting its closest electric competitor’s 102 MPH. The E1pc also clocked a 94.6 MPH lap, tantalizingly close to the 100 MPH goal. Yes, it completed that lap. But that’s not the amazing thing; the E1pc ran that time while using, on average, less than 40 percent of its throttle and crossed the finish line, according to Czysz, with “plenty in reserve.”
