    Not to be dubious, but that's 4.5Gs. I don't see how you'd be able to stay in the saddle. They may have meant 0-100km/h (62mph). That would be 2.8Gs, which is more in the realm of possibility.

    The KillaCycle is a pretty amazing piece of machinery! From their website:
    KillaCycle - World’s Quickest Electric Motorcycle

    - KillaCycle is the quickest and most powerful electric motorcycle in the world. It has over 500 hp and accelerates 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in less than a second!

    - has made the fastest (mph) and quickest (ET) ¼ mile pass ever made by any electric vehicle of any kind (7.824 s @ 168 mph, Pomona, November 2007).

    KillaCycle facts:
    0-60 mph (0-96 km/h): 0.97 seconds
    Acceleration: 2.89 G (almost 3 times free fall)
    ¼ mile: 7.82 seconds @ 168 mph
    Power: over 500 hp
    Battery: 1210 lithium iron nano-phosphateâ„¢ cells from
    A123 Systems
    Battery weight: 200 lbs (90 kg)
    Battery voltage: 374 Volts
    Battery capacity: 9.1 kWh
    Motors: Two DC series motors @ 87 lbs (40 kg) each.
    Controller: Cafe Electric Zilla2k-HV
    Drive: direct chain drive on the rear wheel.
    Total weight of the bike: 653 lbs (296 kg).
    Electricity consumption: 0.6 kWh, worth $0.07 for each run
    down the strip including the burn out. It corresponds
    to 2 ounces (70 ml) of gasoline.
    Charger: Manzanita Micro PFC-50, 12kW power-factor corrected, multi-voltage input
    Tires: M&H Racemaster 10.0/27.0 - 15 MHR-68

    They are in the middle of a refit with a new battery pack using the latest gen A123 cells cutting pack weight in half. They are also transitioning to a new inverter and AC motor in hopes of going even faster.

    Another good one to check out is the White Zombie:
    Welcome to Plasma Boy Racing, home of White Zombie, the world's quickest street legal electric door slammer in the 1/4 mile drag.
    Worlds fastest street legal electric car, 1972 Datsun 1200 w/ 772 ftlbs of torque :) Best run so far <12s on PbA, <11.5s on Li-ion.

    I pulled 2.8 G's once. But I was in the back seat of an F-4e at the time! I cannot imagine a bike doing that!

    In the killacycle youtube, why did the engine sound like a combustion? Or was that my imagination?

    After take off it sounded like an electric.


    Very fast indeed.
