World’s most expensive electric motorcycle costs $100,000
With the world’s prominent enterprises looking to go green, various auto companies have led the way by experimenting with eco-friendly fuel options for their various new vehicles. Though these fuels have various emission levels, there have been a few with virtually zero emissions, the most obvious being electricity. High end vehicles like the Mission One Motorcycle and Roehr range prove that, it indeed is a viable option for powering high-end vehicles. Moving on the same path, Cosmic Motor’s designer Daniel Simon has created what is now the World’s most expensive electric motorbike; The Detonator.
Built on the sidelines of what could be a sister model of the Tron motorbike, this edition features the low-slung chassis design with large wheels on the back and front end. The front end has a 30-inch wheel, where as the rear end gets a 27-incher. The low slung chassis mentioned, is 11.5 feet in length and houses the rather compact engine of the bike, powered by Lithium-Ion batteries. The design borrows a classic theme from low-riding mean machines with the long front end handle to control directions. Speaking of the workings of the 2-wheeler, an hour of plugging in to a 110 volt power outlet, the bike is ready to go for an estimated 80-100 mile journey before it needs another charge. The top speed available on this ‘Green machine’ is around 120 mph.
As for the pricing, it is pegged at $100,000 a piece available from Parker Brother Outlets, or from the Cosmic Motors studio. Currently customers in the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Europe have been the lucky ones to ride this machine, but we might see this elsewhere in the world too. For those who like whacky designs go, we do suggest you read over our coverage of Mavizen’s TTX02 electric bike, which had a built-in web server amongst offerings.
