Shock­ing RG250

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

Aussie Tony Cast­ley’s Suzuki RG250 is no or­di­nary MK3 Gamma. It’s got no ex­pan­sion cham­bers, it doesn’t smoke, and it won’t come on pipe at 8000rpm. But it is faster off the line than a stock RG thanks to its elec­tric out-run­ner mo­tor, pow­ered by 120 lithium iron phos­phate cells. Tony built it as a bike to ride to work – the range is 70kms – and it weighs only 5kgs more than stan­dard, so han­dling is still sweet. See more at https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng­w­mo­zo­qvns

Do Aussies dream of elec­tric stro­kers?
