217-horsepower electric motorcycle

https://newatlas.com/curtiss-hades-e...orcycle/60641/

No mention of how many minutes or miles it gets per battery charge.

for a measly $100,000 you can own one.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks the battery pack looks like a dingus.

The designer of this disaster, J.T. Nesbitt is the same one who designs the ugly azz bikes for Confederate Motorcycles, more high priced toys for the garage or for people with more money than brains. Their bikes are fugly.

Drop 3 0s off the price & I could figure out something to cover it up with.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Compared to most other electrics I've seen that bike doesn't look so bad. Just like most electric cars. Why do they also have to be so ugly? The Prius comes to mind.

Even the Chinese have more class when designing an electric motorcycle. What do you think? It looks familiar doesn't it? I want one of these.
