ION – electric sportbike prototype is as cool as it looks

Posted on by 1

Tom Miceli is a dedicated and hard working young man, who recently presented his own electric motorcycle at the Southern Energy and Environment Expo 2009. Tom has a BS degree in Industrial Design from the Appalachian State University in the US and the electric sportbike, that he designed and constructed in a single semester, features an 84-volt lithium-ion battery, which powers a three-phase AC motor that produces 105 lb feet of torque and 46 hp. The batteries offer the ION a 60-mile range, while the top speed is an estimated 80 mph.

After showing his creation to an impressed audience, Tom took the ION for a test ride, so here’s the video from the event.


It looks good this electric bike and it goes ok too.
