As sleek and sexy as an electric motorcycle gets these days.

Take a gander at the Mission One, the plug-in electric motorcycle from Mission Motors. With a 150-mile range and a top speed of 150 silent miles per hour, all wrapped up in a Yves Béhar design, the Mission One isn’t a crotch rocket-it’s a crotch whisper (in a good way).
