Default "Holy s##t!" – the amazing Zero SR electric motorcycle blows our minds

http://www.gizmag.com/zero-sr-2014-e...st-ride/32015/
Quote:
It's been about three years since we last tested one of Zero Motorcycles' electric bikes, and in that time, the company has been very busy. Compared to the 2011 Zero S, the 2014 Zero SR has between 200-400 percent more everything – riding this bike was an absolutely shocking progress report on the state of the art. The SR represents a liminal moment in motorcycling. We may look back in years to come and see this as the first time an electric motorcycle stood shoulder to shoulder with petrol powered bikes, and made them feel like yesterday's heroes.

Came across this on Slashdot.org...

He might be a quack. But, on the hand, he might be onto something.

I'm going to give him $100 USD for his experiment. Possibly worthless, but possibly worthwhile.

And, hell, I pay about that much per month for only one of my servers.

P.S. He knows how to handle himself debating the physics before many very knowledgeable people....

Who has time for boring "work intensive" stuff like that when one is furiously MMORPGing, TwitTweeting and facePalling?

No. At least according to Wikipedia.

12 are American. 41 are from other countries.
