This hybrid motorcycle could be the US military’s new special-ops workhorse. And maybe, just maybe, it’ll also be available to civilians.
The project is being undertaken in a partnership between BRD Motorcycles in California and Logos Technologies in Virginia with a grant from DARPA. The project is based on BRD’s Redshift MX (pictured)—an all-#electric motorcycle BRD described as a barely-street-legal motocross racer. It weighs just 250 lbs. Its liquid-cooled electric motor produces 25 hp and an additional 15 hp in 10-second bursts. Top speed is 70 mph, and range tops out at about 50 miles.
