    1/8th mile 7.0sec 1/4 mile 11.15 trap speed 110mph , ET ok but trap speed a bit slow, so indicates the Volt has good Torque but a bit low on HP

    Not surprising though....  That Swedish super-car that starts with "K" uses electric motors on each wheel to get its awesome acceleration!

    Only experience I have is with MTN E Bikes but I peddle them & they only help to about 25kph & if you co faster than that, it's all under your own steam.
    but the more assistance you use the quicker the battery drains.
    with the Volt it is all battery powered no assistance, but I've no idea what range they have. And I would expect they are more for short rides. But I don't know anything about them, but draining the battery fully in 1/4 of a mile , does not sound right, unless they fitted a smaller Battery to get weight off it just for this pass? the rider was a lady & looks small, so as power to weight plays a big part?

    Not sure what a "volt" is, last i remember it was a Chevy electric car .

    Here is the world record run for an electric drag bike (set  back in 2012),...... very boring compared to top fuel !!

    Keeping on a drag racing theme, this is a good story for any drag racing fans who remember "big daddy" Don Garlits .

    Might have called it wrong? It is the Electric Bike Harley now have in line up. so a production street registered & the record is probably just comparing times & speeds of the Harley product people have, done on one to date.

    No worries but they will use a lot more battery power , when you ride them faster. so range would get shorter & I'd expect if power down low, a full recharge would take at least four hours. ( so a group of them would drink a lot of coffee on a long run! )

    thanks.

    I'm sure someone will buy an electric Harley. just will be interesting to see some on the road & talk to people who ride them.
    but for me I like motors, that use fuel.
