Superlight Electric Wolf Is an Apex Predator



Every electric racing motorcycle we’ve seen so far has suffered from one major problem: Physics.

They’re all perfectly capable of transforming electrons into motive power. And some, like Chip Yates’ 190.6-mph beast, are blindingly quick. But in their pursuit of powertrain innovation, the people building these machines have overlooked, if not forgotten, what’s made internal-combustion-engine motorcycles so successful: Less weight equals more performance.

Michael Uhlarik hasn’t forgotten that. He’s embraced it. The Amarok P1 that the Canadian motorcycle designer unveiled today weighs just 325 pounds. That’s firmly in Moto GP race bike territory and almost half what Yates’ 585-pound behemoth weighs.

600 Pound bike is a heavy bike dude... while shaving off 200 pounds off a bike that makes a lil less power i think is a huge improvement.. maybe electric bikes are really the future.

600 lbs bikes vs 380 lbs bike with not that much less of power... power to weight ratio!

now i wonder if those 600lbs bikes shed weight with the same power cells house much power would they be making at that point! crazy numbers!
