Don't miss the opportunity to see Core77 Design Award Transportation Winner, Mission R race their electric superbike this weekend at the MotoGP Red Bull US Grand Prix out at Laguna Seca. Designed by Timothy Prentice of Motonium Design with James Parker on the chassis design and engineering, Steve Rapp will be riding the Mission R in its racing debut.
The heart of the Mission R is an advanced MissionEVT powertrain that packs 141hp and 14.4 kWh of energy storage in a package smaller than a 600cc sportbike. The liquid-cooled AC Induction motor produces 115 ft. lbs. of torque the moment the rider cracks the throttle, rocketing the bike from a standstill to over 160 mph in one gear. Power is managed by the MissionEVT 100kW motor controller, with customizable regenerative braking maps, throttle maps and more. All vehicle and ride data is accessible via WiFi or 3G connections.
