Introducing the 2012 Brutus Electric Motorcycle

Think about the names given to electric cars and electric motorcycles on the market today.

Most, if not all, are a play on the concept of all-electric, zero tailpipe emissions travel.

So when we heard about a team of engineers in Henderson, Nevada who were developing a new electric motorcycle called Brutus 2, we had to investigate.

Retro Styled, Classic Charm

All Electric E-cycle Hits 161 mph Top Speed

All Electric E-cycle Hits 161 mph Top Speed

San Francisco-based Mission Motors unveiled its Mission One electric streetbike prototype last winter. At that time, Product Manager Jeremy Cleland claimed that the bike would achive 150 mph. That was their minimum target.

Cleland himself rode the Mission One prototype to a new AMA electric motorcycle speed record of 150.059 mph at the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats on September 1, 2009. This record speed represents the average of two flying passes through Bonneville’s mile-long speed trap. The Mission One’s highest one-way speed recorded at that event was 161 mph.

Beijing, China — Electric bikes have, in the past, been known for their lack of onboard storage — the only items available were messenger bags, or an open basket.

Ryan McGinley has designed the Amur Leopard, a prototype electric bike that will debut on the streets of Beijing. The Leopard is an electric bike with built-in storage under the seat for a laptop, briefcase, or a six-pack of your beverage of choice.

The Amur Leopard bike also has a “navigational/communication” device built into the steering panel.
