Mission Motor Company reveals its high perfomance electric motorcycle, the One

There are some electric motorcycles for sale in the world, but the Mission One must be the first high performance two-wheel vehicle to be produced in the world. Designed by Yves Béhar, it is able to achieve impressive numbers, such as 240 km/h of top speed and 240 km of range. All that only on electricity.

There are still some important numbers missing, such as 0 to 100 km/h time and weight, but the motorcycle is already amazing for what it proposes to deliver, or else, performance with no gas emission. Torque, which is fully available at any rev speed, is 156 Nm. Full charge of the batteries can be achieved in two hours in a 220V outlet. In a 110V outlet, this time is multiplied by four and reaches eight hours.

The first Mission One units will be part of a special series called Limited Edition. Each will bear a price tag of US$ 68,995. It may seem too much for a two-wheel vehicle, but Mission One features some of the best parts in the motorcycle market, such as Ohlins suspensions, Marchesini wheel rims and Brembo brakes. Besides, of course, the electric engine with no gearbox.
