Gee, that press release is a little over the top when it comes to self-congratulations and adjectives. :rolleyes:

I hope their prototype is that much better than Lightning, Brammo and Zero's production el motos.

They are Italian. :D It should be on par speed wise with the Empulse R and the 2013 Zero S, pretty easily if they kept the 100kW motor. Nothing will touch the power of the $40,000 Lightning, or it's weight. ;)

They are on my short list for an interview after the World Final.
