    Mission Motors launches 150 mph Mission One

    Mission Motors, formerly known by their stealth name of Hum Cycles, has just broken cover and unveiled their electric motorcycle. 150 mph top speed. 150 mile range. Very hot.

    Testimonials scare me. The worst movies aways have people coming out of the theater saying how good it was. Those are the movies to avoid!

    Any mention of how much it weighs? How does it's mass compare to that of a standard sport bike?

    I like this feature:
    Plus, "The Mission One also allows riders to tune their regenerative braking to fit with their riding style. "
