They say that it will race in the Isle of Man.

The technology is exciting but the bike is hideous.

    2. They had a drag racing motorcycle on tv a while back, I forget what show.

      I love the enclosed, square, smooth, almost stealth bomber look of it.

    5. @ColombianMonkey:
      the last thing I want to be on a motorcycle is silent.

      I used to drive a big old loud beast, and still had trouble with people not noticing me. wtf

    6. @Mack: Aren’t you special.

      @tiki god: That’s because loud pipes are pointed BEHIND the motorcycle, so while in motion, cars aren’t any more likely to hear the quiet bike over the loud bike.

    7. Drivers need to see us more than we need them to hear us. As outofocus pointed out, mufflers point behind us and my biggest problem was cars shifting in to my lane. Hubby was broadsided by a driver while sitting at a red light. Threw him 3 lanes over and under an oncoming bus. That was worth a few months in hospital and physical therapy and now he mostly walks properly. He has always used glass packs rather than mufflers, so he certainly wasn’t running silent.

    8. Sierpinski gaskets are not good aesthetic design choices. Put a regular grill on the sides, make it look at least a little more muscle-y.

      Dude that whole bike is a bad design choice. I love electric motors considering they beat the piston engine into a bloody pulp on take off. I mean seriously, why do all electric cars look like shit? It looks like Chris Bangle took some acid and outsourced his designs to some shitty second rate art school.

    11. just looks really uncomfortable anyway, wont be able to see much from those wing mirrors either. not to mention the disturbing lack of pedals, I only see a peg. Hopefully this is just a shitty prototype….

    12. Ugh… this is the soyburger of bikes. My stomach churns at the mere idea of a noiseless, electric bike.

    14. @thelotuseater725: Blame the Gernsback Continuum. It’s still with us, making us pick bad things for concept cars.

      I don’t think it’s only electric cars. I think it’s all ‘concept’ cars. It’s just, sadly, most electrics are still on the drawing board. ๐Ÿ™

    15. KTM an austrian motorcycle producer has also presented their first zero emission bike, it is a dirtbike an will come in 2012. probably this is the future, although I don’t think it will be soon. but for dirt bikes it would be cool because in europe it almoust imposible to drive in the open nature it is forbiten everywherer, mostly because of noise and emissions. but this one IS hideous
