Chip Yates is comming to Pikes Peak in June, to set a new electric motorcycle hill-climbing record. His monsterous 240 hp lithium racer is not just gunning for the electric title, but he will be hoping to smash the records set by the ICE bikes, with the advantage of not losing power as he makes the 4,700 elevation over 12 and a half miles!

The bike not only performs, but looks sensational! (see pics below from Autoblog Green/Hell for Leather)

Go! Chip, GO!
