I don’t know if you guys remember, but the Killacycle (an all electric motorcycle) broke on the scene last year when it’s owner crashed it outside of the Wired Nextfest here in LA (you can see it after the ‘leap’).  In the end of it all, as stupid as the owner looked, and as entertaining as it was to watch, they reaped some good awareness out of it.  Today, they’re back and this time there’s no follies, just records.  The Killacycle was the first electric vehicle to achieve an under 8 second quarter mile, and today they upped the anty with a 7.89 second run.  Additionally, they reached a new top speed of 174.05 mph.

Watching the video of its driver taking off just looks sick!  I wonder if his brain smashes into the back of his head?
