Finally.. a ebike fast enough to keep up with interstate commuting traffic!  ;D

Seriously though, I liked the graphic overlay. the blue line smoothly goes up and around, making the rate of acceleration very clear.

200+ MPH, crazy fast.

It's like flying, but with more traction.  And none of that Z-axis complexity.

Lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Diginow SCv2 changed my SR from a fun ride to primary transport.

2014 Zero SR, accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1 NiMH. 2001 Honda Helix.

It's wild how linear the acceleration is all the way up to 150mph/160mph.

Hmm, I'm seeing it but it's my account.  I have to figure out if google photos can be used for public access I guess.  It seems all the hosting sites are requiring $$ to allow third-party hosting.

they can be public for free, you just have to use the "share" link instead of your private url.

It's a street-legal 2004 Hayabusa with stock bodywork (mirrors are removed per regs and the aftermarket fender is permitted).  Remy HVH250 motor, Rinehart Motion Systems PM100DXR controller, Lonestar "Sleeper" cells.  It's a fairly straightforward conversioin with steel subframe onto which the motor and batteries are mounted.  Weight is about the same as a stocker, useful range is probably 30 miles.  I think the aero is pretty good as I was able to close off all the radiator and airbox openings.  Small radiators to cool the motor and controller are in the back.

If you don't mind me asking what is the voltage and battery size for this beast.
