One of the most exciting moments of the AHDRA drags in Pomona was getting to see the KillaCycle in action. This bike is incredible.  Powered by 186 pounds of Nano-Phosphate batteries, producing an amazing 500 Horsepower!  When the KillaCycle did its burnout, it filled the area with smoke but there was hardly a sound. When the bike took off I couldn't believe my eyes or ears.  The KillaCycle launched like a rocket but didn't make a sound, and then when I saw the time on the board myself and all the folks in the stands were in complete awe - 7.824 at 168.49 MPH!  The KillaCycle is currently the quickest 1/4 mile electric drag bike in the world. This amazing machine only uses about $0.07 worth of electricity for each run and that even includes the burn outs.  The KillaCycle can make ten or more runs without recharging.  When it does need a recharge it only takes about three and a half minutes.  We had the opportunity to speak with the owner and crew chief Bill Dube before and after this historic run.  He is a true inspiration to the motorcycle and automotive industry. For more pictures and details check out his website www.killacycle.com.
