One-hundred miles-per-hour – that’s the record-breaking speed a group from Purdue hopes to achieve for an electric motorcycle.

Dr. John Sullivan, professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, enlisted the help of students to create an electric motorcycle. He says they used an existing frame, but modified it with an electric motor and batteries.

They will get an official measure of their top speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
