Hayabusa with an Electric Motor

This Suzuki Hayabusa was built to drag race and competes in the 200 volt class. The motorcycle weighs 164 kg (361 lb) and is powered by an electric motor from a forklift. The team has modified the electric motor to increase output to 200 horsepower on a custom controller. The combination resulted in a 9.3 sec quarter-mile (not filmed).
