At Virginia Motorsports Park last week, Larry “Spiderman” McBride took the Lawless EV Racing Rocket [2] drag racing [3] bike [4] to a new world electric drag racing record of 7.246 seconds while reaching a speed of 185.46 miles per hour. The 1,610-horsepower bike rode straight to the top of the National Electric Drag Racing’s standings, proving once again that electric bikes [5] can have serious chops.

There isn’t much else to say, except that you need to watch the video above to get a sense of just how fast Spidey got the Lawless Racing Rocket off the line. Immediate torque from an electric motor [6] is truly something to behold.
