Mission R Debuts

Mission Motors will unveil the 2011 Mission R, the company’s new all-electric racing superbike at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show on Friday, Dec. 17, 2010.

Members of the media will be the first to witness this new zero-emission superbike, although it will be on display for all motorcycle show attendees through Sunday, Dec. 19, 2010 at the convention center.

The new Mission R will feature their next-generation MissionEVT powertrain that was recently unveiled at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The new high-performance Electric Vehicle Technology was developed for their own electric superbikes as well as other vehicle manufacturers.

The innovative technology includes battery modules, the motor-controller, the motor, and the overarching intelligent software system.

Power dense, energy-dense, and modular; the MissionEVT electric powertrains is stated to be flexible and adaptable enough to fit a wide range of vehicles from scooters to passenger cars, and from full battery electric to gasoline hybrid vehicles.

On the heels of the company’s MissionEVT launch, the California Energy Commission (CEC) awarded Mission Motors a grant to commercialize the new high-performance EV powertrain technology.

The $505,381 grant will be matched by $623,581 in private funding for a total of over $1.1 million that will assist the company with their stated goal of creating the most advanced electric superbike on the racing grid in 2011.

This next-generation electric motorcycle, as well as the latest 2011 motorcycles from Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Harley-Davidson, Can-Am, Star, Ducati, Victory, BMW and Triumph will be in the flesh at the Long Beach Convention Center located at 300 E. Ocean Blvd.
