BRD redshift Electric SuperMoto launch party in San Francisco
 
I went to the BRD redshift Electric SuperMoto launch party in San Francisco tonight.

It's a home grown company of just a few guys and this is the prototype. They had about 300 people show up. Charlie Rauseo (Rally Pan Am) was there doing a piece on it for CityBike a local SF Monthly Motorcycle News Paper http://www.citybike.com/site/

They had the bike under wraps until the big unveiling.

When they finally did pull the cover off the bike was swarmed.

watched it run
 
last friday Derek and crew ran the bike on the tarmac at the old Navy base in Alameda
about a block from where I work
no speedo on their bike so they asked me to follow behind to get a sense how fast it is
it pulls away from the KLR up to about 60 ~ 65 and then ran out of steam

theirs is 255 pounds and 40 horse (6.4 power to weight ratio)
mine is 400 pounds and 46 horse (8.7 power to weight ratio)

I recently rode the Zero Motorcycles electric bike.

Even at 320lbs it would pull me down the road at 70mph.....good brakes, decent power.....supposedly runs 60 miles on a charge.

I think the tech is ALMOST there.....if I could ride 120 to 150 miles on a charge.....Id own one of these in a second.
