    Making high performance motorcycles and safety don't exactly go hand in hand, at least compared to making safe cars.

    I like the quote on their youtube demo:

    Motorcycles are inherently violently unsafe.

    An electric motorcycle would be 10x that.

    I had an 883 cc Harley-Davidson Sportster. The smallest bike they made.

    Incredible torque.

    Switch that to equivalent electric, and absolutely deadly.
