The View From the World's Fastest Electric Motorcycle

Chip Yates! The name oozes "adrenaline freak," doesn't it? Or maybe "a capella group alumni chairman." Regardless, the SWIGZ team's driver recently pushed a 241HP electric bike to 190MPH from a standing start in under 30 seconds—and strapped a camera to his helmet to prove it.


It's an unofficial record for an electric motorcycle, and while I wish the video gave us a bit more of a view, well, I guess I'll forgive Yates for not rubbernecking at those speeds. [Engadget]
