    Jay Leno reviews the Mission-R

    See the 18-minute video here: http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/14/m...-in-to-jay-le/

    Not only does Jay check the bike over, but he also rides it for 24 miles on the street.

    "Our whole idea with this was to make 'motorcycle 2.0'... Our whole design mantra with this bike is to, appreciate; get better with time... We've designed the battery module to come right out, and when we sell a new one, with a battery pack that is twice as powerful, twice as light, wheatever, drop a new one in. Not only will you get the benefits of a new battery, the motor is actually much more powerful than 160 hp." Mark Seeger, President of Mission Motorcycles.

    Not too many details in this video of the new RS model, but good to see that Mission Motorcycles is now available for purchase. Hope to see these bikes on the street and competing on the local track soon.

    Jay's closing comment, "It's the future; what can I say?" How about, "Sold!"?

    In Australia, the only place you will see them in use is on the track, cause they aren't ADR compliant
