Killacycle OLD WORLD RECORD 8.168@155MPH. 0-60 Mph 0.9seconds.
See linked video for the NEW ELECTRIC VEHICLE WORLD RECORD by Killacycle 7.82 @ 168 MPH
Now running 1210 A123 M1 Nanophosphate Li-Ion battery cells that produce 500 hp (up from the previous record set with 990 A123 M1 cells and 350 hp)
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 $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms.

KillaCycle - New World Record !!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
KillaCycle New Record 7.86 @ 169 MPH Bandimere Speedway NEDRA 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 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 bext ET of any of these powerful- purpose-built interal
combustion vehciles was in the low 8's.
Notice Eva Hakansson in the left lane on her ElectroCat. While the
KillaCycle was busy setting the "unlimited" drag bike NEDRA record, Eva was
busy setting the 48 volt division street-legal NEDRA record.
The Killacycle & Scotty Pollacheck 7.82 @ 168 MPH
This weekend at the AHDRA (All Harley Drag Racing Association) California
Nationals Scotty Pollacheck bested his own existing world record of 8.08
sec @ 163 mph with a 7.82 sec @ 168 mph on the A123 Systems Killacycle
Electric Dragbike. Owner Bill Dube' has finally reached his quest of
breaking the 7 second barrier. Go to Killacycle.com and/or NEDRA.com for
more information on this record breaking machine!
Killacycle New World Record 155 MPH!
See what 990 www.A123systems.com cells can do! Last run on March 31st 2007
at Firebird speedway in AZ. This is the fastest and quickest 1/4 mile run
of _any_ electric vehicle on the planet! All 60 foot times were less than

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2
speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct
drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current,
these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used
this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit
of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric
cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more
information regarding this bolt in drive train, please visit

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!
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".
