The Mission R electric superbike by Mission Motors is one of those motorcycles that looks great by itself in a photo, and then looks even better once you see it in person. Up-close it is easier to appreciate the finer details that went into making the Mission R, like the all-carbon “fuel tank” and battery enclosure, the chrome-moly trellis frame, and of course the single-piece billet aluminum swingarm that was produced by Speedymoto. Machined down to single-sided perfection, Speedymoto started the Mission R’s swingarm from a single piece of aluminum billet that weighed 80 lbs, while the finished product weighs only 18.8 lbs with the slider for the chain tensioner/wheelbase adjuster installed.
