SilentHawk - hybrid motorcycle in development for US military



DARPA Funds SilentHawk Military Hybrid-Electric Motorcycle Prototype: UPDATED

This is quite interesting. Alta Motors (formerly BRD Motorcycles) is using an existing EV dirtbike they have and slapping on a small genset to it to make a hybrid motorcycle. It'll have ~50 miles of range, and the genset can run on numerous fuels for versatility. Its also 2wd.
