The KillaCycle, ridden by Scotty Pollacheck, made drag racing history AGAIN at Bandimere Speedway October 23rd, 2008. 7.89 s @ 168 MPH is a new official record and makes KillaCycle to the world's quickest electric vehicle of any kind!
The A123 Systems Nanoposphate batteries are changing the entire landscape for electric vehicles, and battery-powered devices in general.

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

Killacycle battery powered drag bike's record-breaking run
The Killacycle broke records at the AHDRA (All Harley Drag Racing
Association) Grand Finale in Las Vegas. Susan, the vidograper, caught
driver Scotty Pollacheck's beautiful burn out and 8.76 second quarter-mile
run. Carefully watch the end of the track when the powerful A123 M1
batteries burn out one of the overloaded motors, sending sparks onto the
track and a ball of glowing plasma high over the right guardrail.

Gomi Style - Electric Motorcycle Conversion
A Honda Rebel motorcycle is converted to a zero emissions electric chopper.
Made the Gomi way, with mostly found and scavenged materials, we make a
street legal commuter bike perfect for San Francisco.
KillaCycle New Record 7.86 @ 169 MPH Bandimere Speedway NEDRA event
Two new Electric Vehicle World Records in one Run!
Here is some video of the Killacycle and The ElectroCat. The Killacycle is
the electric motorcycle that I designed and built the Battery Management
System for. Below is some text that bike owner, Bill Dube' wrote
describing the event:
The KillaCycle has done it again. We broke the _overall_ NEDRA record for
electric's in the 1/4 mile. The KillaCycle is the very fastest and quickest
EV of any sort in the 1/4 mile.
It was a beautiful day at Bandimere Speedway and, as always, the track
conditions were perfect.
The A123Systems battery propelled us into the recordbooks once again.
A123Systems stock raced ahead of the pack on the NASDAQ on Thursday, and
their batteries put us _farther_ ahead of the pack today.
I believe we posted the lowest ET (best time) for any vehicle at the track
today at Bandimere. There was a very well-attended bracket race going on,
and I think the best ET of any of these powerful- purpose-built interal
combustion vehciles was in the low 8's.
In the left lane is Eva Hakansson on her ElectroCat, 100% street-legal in
both the USA and Sweden, set the open NEDRA record for a 48 volt
street-legal motorcycle; 13.249 @ 52.97 MPH. (She selected the 1/8th mile
record, even though her 1/4 mile time was also new record.)
Building VoltZilla The Electric motorcycle "forkencycle"
This is my 1976 Honda CB 550 that i converted to electric. I took an old
Raymond model 20 fork truck and used the guts for my motorcycle. This is
photo video of building the bike, there will be more to come. After
turning in the scrap from the forktruck, I spent $15.61 as of right now,
including the cost of new tires. It covered the cost of almost everything I
bought to make this project happen... "voltzilla" is its name, thanks rob
for the name ... How did u get voltzilla out of killacycle? Haha LOL yahoo
its a ForkenCycle
Google Voltzilla for more info!
201 mph @ 6.94 sec - Lawless OCC Electric Drag Bike & Larry "Spiderman" McBride

(NEDRA) DMC/A3 record run of 6.940 at 201.37 mph making it the first
electric vehicle to break 200 mph in the quarter mile! The 355 volt Rocket
bike was built by Lawless Industries and Orange County Choppers.

Speed Records Killacycle
Subject: Killacycle on 'Rapid Turnover; Speed Records' on the Speed Channel
I just got a call from a friend who was watching the Speed Channel and saw
the Killacycle, the world's fastest electric motorcycle
on the show "Speed Records". If you pause at the exact right moment, you
can see me in there. But what I'm most
proud of is the Battery Management System I designed, developed, and
assembled to handle the A123 Lithium Ion Battery pack. The
pack consists of 990 cells; the _exact_ same cells used in DeWalt's new 36V
Lithium Ion product line. This BMS can be seen on the
Killacycle segment when you see those green LEDs glowing, and later in the
show in the White Zombie segment. Later tonight I'll
post a copy of this video on YouTube (after I finish cleaning up after the
flood). I bet if you search for "Killacycle"
and "Speed Records" you will be able to find it on YouTube.
If you would like to see more, you can look at my web site at
www.Ciciora.com, the motorcycle web site at www.Killacyle.com, or
there are a bunch of videos posted on YouTube.com Just search for
"Killacycle" on YouTube.com. One of my videos I filmed and
uploaded has over a quarter million views, and is the #90 most linked video
of all time under "Autos and Vehicles".
