BUB: Mission Motors Does 160 MPH at Bonneville Mission Motors Mission One Bonneville salt flats Bub Week 560x314

Looking to back up their claim as the fastest electric motorcycle in the world, Mission Motors was also in attendance at this year’s Bub Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Shod in their streamlined fairings from the TTXGP, the Mission One reportedly averaged 160 mph through the timed mile. Check after the jump for a video of their run down the salt.

More information on the run as we get it, but this would seem to be confirmed by Mission Motor’s tweet, “Off to do some high speed testing today at a top secret location. Should be fun.” sent two weeks ago.
