Hand-built in Quebec, the bike has a liquid-cooled AC induction electric motor with a 66 lb-ft of torque that is fully available the moment your hand twitches. You fling forward instantaneously, doing zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds, quicker than a Porsche 718 Cayman.

The motor pulls its energy from a lithium-ion battery pack mounted under the faux fuel tank and sends power through a continuously variable transmission, which means no shifting gears like you would on a conventional motorcycle.
