Russian "Ghost Rider" Does 100 KM/H on DIY Electric Bike [Video]
This time it's not about the Swedish GR riding at 350 km/h (217 mph) on the highway, or taunting the Police, but a motorcyclist in Moscow riding his DIY electric bike in the Russian capital and reaching speeds in excess of 100 km/h (62 mph) on the open highways of the huge city.
Once more, we're not looking at a $15k Brammo or similar machine: it's a DIY vehicle and the motorcyclist even makes adjustments and refines settings as he rides.
We might believe he's got a back patch reading “Lane Splitting 4 Ever” or something similar on his jacket, if we were to judge by his riding manner, but seeing his machine ride so smooth and elegantly, we're willing to skip this part.
A good example for those looking forward to go electric, even if not the best riding mode out there. Oh, there's one more thing worth mentioning: the silver duct tape on the bike... it just doesn't get any more DIY, does it? Thanks TechVehi.
