The long, rambling journey of Mission Electric – formerly Mission Motorcycles, formerly Mission Motors, originally Hum Cycles – has come to a quiet end with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.
Mission Motorcycles is not Mission Motors. We say that off the start to avoid confusion about what follows. Mission Motors was started in San Francisco a few years back after exploding from its stealth cocoon, known as Hum Cycles. Mission Motorcycles was started much more recently by three gentlemen – Mark Seeger, Vincent Ip, and Andrew Ng – and partners symbiotically with Mission Motors for its technology. Ok, got that?
