If you live in the United States, you may have missed the announcement made last Thursday, that the world’s fastest all-electric superbike has been unveiled. Making its first appearance at the 2008 NEC Bike Show in the UK , the TTX01 isn’t commercially available yet, but it is street legal (in the UK at least), can do 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 125 mph. The price tag when a limited number are available for purchase by the end of 2009: £20,000 ($30,000).

Want to know how far will you be able to go on a single battery charge, more details? Read on:

Based Off Stock Suzuki Bike
Based on the chassis of a Suzuki GSX750, the TTX01 uses two 43 bhp Agni Lynch electric motors: equivalent to the peak power of a 600cc gasoline powered motorcycle. What’s more, the TTX01 has a an additional motor on the front wheel creating a 2WD motorcycle which gives the bike “achieve significant improvements to handling and roadholding, particularly in wet conditions.” (Gizmag)

Currently the TTX01 has 14 kWh battery packs, but the goal is to have hot swappable 20 kWh batteries which will power the bike at normal road speeds for about 50 miles. Recharge time for the batteries should be under two hours.

For the next six months the TTX01 will be on a promotional tour of Europe, before returning to the UK for the TTX GP race on the Isle of Man next June.

They didn't even shave the exhaust hanger off the passenger peg.
