The latest issue of Hot Rod just came, and on page 33 is a feature on KillaCycle. We mentioned KillaCycle a couple months ago after it was listed in a Yahoo! discussion group's top 12 electric-vehicle milestones for 2006. But it's nice to see this electric-powered bike get noticed in the preeminent speed and technology publication. KillaCycle, owned by Bill Dube, is powered by a pair of 6.7-inch motors with 374 volts of juice coming from A123 Systems lithium ion cells. The bike can make six full runs on one charge. Check out the video to see KillaCycle and rider Scott Pollacheck stop the clocks at the dragstrip in 8.76 seconds with a trap speed of 152 mph.
