Mission Motorcycles- Now At Select Dealers

Mission Motorcycles are rolling out their R and RS models to select dealerships. The new bikes were introduced on June 3rd, and covered here.

Mission Motors took an easy first place over MotoCzysz, but Michael Czysz was the first to admit it’s him, not the bike. Only one year later, the electric motorcycles are all running about 10 seconds faster than before. Czysz was able to drop a few seconds, but not enough to compete against AMA Pro racer Steve Rapp.

The first practice session was uneventful for most, but Thad Wolff’s Moto Electra motor caught fire, forcing him to ride into the gravel at Turn 4.
