Electric Motorcycle Breaks Speed Record, But...
Kevin Clemens' electric motorcycle -- dubbed "The Fabulous Photon Torpedo" -- raced through the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah at 98.7 mph last week.
Clemens' speed was much higher than the previous national record speed of 68.8 mph, but it wasn't fast enough to beat the speeds posted by Purdue University in the altered, partially streamlined class using 150-kilogram (330-pound) electric motorcycles.
Purdue's team, which used a state-of-the-art water-cooled prototype motor, hit between 110 and 115 mph, Clemens said.
