Mission Motors Will Race 2011 Season On The New Mission R

Mission Motors quietly announced on their website plans to race the 2011 season but they have not named events or a specific electric race series. They also show the silhouette of the new Mission R. There are no details of the bike beyond the picture and we are left wondering if the bike will use the Mission EVT drivetrain they announced yesterday at SEMA.

Mission writes on their website:

The racing circuit is the proving ground for Mission technology. Our customized Mission race bikes carry the same advanced electric powertrain found in our production motorcycles. Mission’s Motorsports Team will compete in races throughout the 2011 Season. Through a commitment to success on the track, the Mission Racing team aims to set the mark for electric performance.

Hit the break for more pictures and everything I can gather from the picture…

The picture shows a much more streamlined body and a much smaller overall package than the original Mission One. You can also make out an oddly oriented rear shock, with the top of the shock mounted well back from the bottom. I’m assuming they have implemented some type of unique linkage or shock tuning wizardry but it’s all guesses at this point. Stay tuned for more details.

Below is a picture of the Mission One, now called the Mission One PLE (Premier Limited Edition).

    batteries seem arcane in this day in age. who if any at all are exploring stored enertia? magnet tec for instance has made great progress in recent years ie. maglev. although maglev trains use electricity to boost magnitivity for propulsion. less energy is required to move the train than to power the lights in the passenger area. based on the maglev power to propulsion ratio it is my hypothesis that stored enertia is the next rational step for modern transportation. a simple example would be the 1980’s evil kenevil stunt bike toy. this is stored inertia in its purest sense. so combining alternator/generator electricity fuled magnets with the proper amount of weight to produce torque could create an engine that never stops. infinate aplications are possible. imagine a car engine that runs all night and creates surplus energy to supliment household needs. essentially the oposite of a smart or green car. this idea has plagued my brain for years and if you have any thaughts please respond.
