Mission One

When I first saw a rendering of the Mission One bike I loved it, I mean it looked like something Luke Skywalker would park outside his bachelour pad, but I felt that there was no way the rendering was going to be translated directly into a finished product. We’ve all seen it many times before, a company that creates a prototype vehicle or rendering that makes your jaw drop when you lay eyes on it only to totally lose the beauty of the original design in the finished showroom floor ready product. This phenomenon has always bothered me a great deal. Why not just produce the vehicle to the same specs as the prototype/rendering? Well, Mission One did exactly that. Already having won multiple design awards as well as having the quickest electric motorcycle currently available on the international market, Mission One has a bright future ahead of it. The current price tag of $68,995 USD will slow some of us down but as production capacity increases the pricing will creep down. Current performance specs for the bike are remarkable in their own right but I have a feeling that if I had one I would park it in my living room and just look at it.

Have these actually started shipping yet? Beautiful bike but I’ll believe it when I see it parked outside Starbucks. Until then they could still drop the ball.
