Energica goes drag racing
« on: April 18, 2015, 08:16:19 AM »

Well, this is impressive (assuming that it hasn't been staged to achieve the desired results):

Interesting to watch!

I have found very strange the little boost the energica had against the P85D... just like the  controller is limiting the current under a given RPM and then BOOM ! full current explode and run that motor WOT....

Doc - I think that's more like the P85D is very quick to 30-40 mph then slows after. Relative frame of reference!

The Zero is less than two seconds slower than the Energica. I suspect this is not a quarter mile length, and I'm suspicious of the HP4 result.. Impressive wins nonetheless.

It's a nice looking bike but 584 pounds? Less battery capacity and range than the non-PT SR? $34,000? I'll bet it's not a whole lot quicker than the SR either. No thanks.

In truth it was a 0 to 100km/have and everything it is real. The problem with the hp4 is to handle a really powerful ICE engine on an extremely light bike.
That trial was the best of the day for the hp4 and was with launch control off. With launch control on the result was even worst for the BMW.
