The KillaCycle electric drag bike

Here are some pictures of the KillaCycle, an electric drag bike owned and designed by Bill Dube’.

Described as “giant cordless drill with wheels”, the 350 horsepower that drives the KillaCycle comes from 990 Lithium Ion cells, the same type of batteries that run your cell phone and laptop computer.

According to the KillaCycle website…

It is currently the quickest 1/4 mile electric drag bike in the world. Recently driver Scott Pollacheck did a record 8.168 second @ 155.78 MPH run at Firebird Raceway in Arizona.

Here is some video of the KillaCycle in action. Listen to the sound it makes as it takes off.
