I have half-wondered when a serious electric motorcycle would come out. I bet off the line it could rip the skin off of your face with all the torque it has.

Once the parts for this kind of bike become more popular and available I wonder how long until someone builds a proper one of these

Huh. Hadn't heard about the zapper KTM.Tell you what; if anybody can pull it off, it's those crazy Austrians. They have a history of being ahead of the curve. Like when they developed the 'linkless' rear single shock, everybody laughed, KTMs won. People quit laughing.

Canoes have sprockets? EDIT: Canoe was deleted, now I look like a shiny happy person. Such is life.
