KillaCycle™ is the quickest electric motorcycle in the world.
It has over 500 HP and accelerates 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in less than one second!

The secret of KillaCycle? – The batteries!
The powerful A123 Systems nano-phosphate™ battery cells are what makes the KillaCycle go as fast as it does! The same battery cells are found in heavy duty cordless hand tools.

If you think about it, the KillaCycle is just a giant cordless drill with wheels!


• is the quickest electric motorcycle in the world.

• has since 1999 continuously set and broken its own world records.
