Ronnie Renner Likes Electric Bikes

Network A has been following the adventures of professional Freestyle Motocross rider Ronnie Renner as he travels the world. It turns out Renner is a big electric motorcycle enthusiast. KTM offers him a chance to fly to their headquarters in Austria to check out their Freeride E. The Freeride E is essentially an electric version of a 250cc motocross bike making 30 hp peak and 62 foot-pounds of all rpm torque from its 300 volt AC motor. The dry technical specs aren’t impressive by gasoline engine standards, but the bike definitely moves in the hands of Ronnie:

Ronnie also is a US dealer for Stealth Electric Bikes. He bought one to ride around his neighborhood for fun and liked it so much that he started importing them. The Stealth Bomber he’s riding in this video has a 9 speed sequential transmission and a power output of 6 horsepower.

Off Season Two – Tuerck’d

Network A’s series about Ryan Tuerck continues with this rather artistically done drift video. Ryan drifts his 1JZ powered S13 up a scenic mountain road which we get to see from a variety of camera angles. He hinted in one of his Q&A videos that he might be swapping the LSx for a turbo inline-6 for Formula D next year. Either that or I was reading too far into it.
