In 2009 Mission Motors had all the attention with big claims about an electric superbike, and following the same game plan as Tesla Motors. They took their superbike to the 2009 TTXGP, completed practice rounds, but flubbed big time in the race. The company did later create a more reliable superbike and set lap-speed records at Laguna Seca International Raceway that still stand 6 years later.
