Pikes Peak electric bike

I wonder what the torque #'s are.
Oh, and check out the umbrella girl!

It's like having your bike in stealth mode. Soooo quiet!

Whatever the torque, electric motors produce maximum torque as soon as they start spinning... 1 rpm on up.

As for the umbrella girl... I don't think he needs a paddock stand.

For the record, literally, Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima finally broke the 10 minute barrier last Sunday in a 910hp mid engine Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special with a time of 9:51.278. That's a Suzuki car with 4 wheels by the way.

Nobuhiro is 61 years old, and he's no Dani Pedrosa, stature wise. Score one for us old guys.

That's exactly the reason I'd like to know the output. The silent, seamless rush of thrust must be very intoxicating.

Where can I get one of those? I want one!

Yes. As I can see 61 clearly from where I'm at.

Don`t forget too that the electric bike would suffer no loss of power as a result of the rising altitude. Considering a naturally aspired engine loses about 3% for every thousand feet of elevation, the impact begins to add up as you get nearer to the top..... A not insignificant factor to be sure.....
