I kind of feel bad for the guy.

Then again, 0-60 in less than a second and no gear at all?

I hope he's okay.

Good going sporto. No helmet, no safety gear and one motorcycle that can go from 0 - 60mph in .97 seconds.

First he takes an age to tell us how quick the thing is, 0-60 on 0.9 secs, 400 hp, $40,000 invested.....blah blah, then smokes it with no safety gear on. Even the venue didn't look appropriate.
That was a "look Ma no hands' moment for sure.
Glad he didn't die but not a lot of sympathy here I'm afraid.

I'm glad he's okay.

After watching that I just sat here with my mouth open for a few seconds. I hope they look for his judgment module while he's in the hospital.

This guy is a shoo-in for next year's Darwin Awards.

Let's see:
* 600+ lb motorcycle - check
* 12" rear slick - check
* 400HP motor - check
* No gear - check
* Throttle WFO - check

What could possibly go wrong?

You have to remove yourself from the gene pool (dead or sterile) to get a Darwin.

40,000$ to 50,000$ invested in the bike. Not a penny left to buy a good helmet.


Bet that smoke smells awfull, like a overheating power tool.

He's really lucky to be alive-- glad he's OK---

Toreador Pants, dammit! Especially when the camera's rolling.

And he really needs to change the name to something besides "Killacycle," don't you think? Headache emoticon

Killacycle? Obviously Mr Dube is not head of Marketing & Research at his bustling endeavor, or is he? If the accident is any indication he probably is head guy and big bananna.

What intrigued me was the mention of the batteries. Does anyone know more about these batteries and will they potentially be the next wave for the electric car/hybrid?

Famous last words,

Ok... is 0 - 60 in .97 sec even realistic? 400HP? I'm no MC genius but that's some serious stuff. Accelerating 600 lb of bike and 200 lb of passenger like that takes some serious ....doo doo!
