Yamaha R1 electric
Lightning Motors' electric motorcycle is powered by lithium ion batteries only. It goes 0 to 60 mph in around 3 seconds, has a top speed of 100 mph and can go about 100 mile before recharging.
The Lightning Lithium bike is based on Tesla electric sports car, which is powered by thousands of batteries; the bike shown uses just 28 batteries. Each battery has a capacity of 3.2 volts, 90 amp-hours and 6.6 pounds. All these batteries together weigh less than the engine and all the parts that were in the original bike and replaced in this electric conversion.
The Lightning Lithium is a prototype; it cost them about $15,000 to convert and developed by Richard Hatfield, a motorcycle enthusiast and a solar panel importer and Todd Kollin.
