Mission Motors has announced the very first details on the Mission R, an electric racing superbike that will compete in the TTXGP racing series along with other races, events, and demonstrations.
The Mission R is powered by a liquid-cooled 3-phase AC Induction motor that delivers 141 HP and 115 lb-ft of torque. The power is delivered by a massive 14.4 kWh battery placed beneath its carbon fiber skin. This will allow the bike to hit a top speed of 160 MPH. The MissionEVT 100kW motor controller, with customizable regenerative braking maps and throttle maps, allowing the rider to tune the bike to his or her preferences.
"Mission Motors participated in the historic first Isle of Man TTXGP in 2009. Later that year, we went to the Bonneville Salt Flats and set an AMA Speed Record for electric motorcycles in 2009. With the help of our sponsors, including Texas Instruments and Pectel/Cosworth, we are excited to be returning to the track in 2011 with the phenomenal Mission R. The crucible of the racing circuit is one of the key ways we advance our technology. Pushing the envelope for what is possible with electric drive shapes not only the future of motorsports, but the future of transportation."
