    "Although details are scant, the civilian-market-inspired UM-1, or Urban Moto, is said to capable of speeds of up to 100km/h (around 62mph), producing 15kw of power with a range of 150 kilometres. The bike also uses a chain drive and is said to weigh between 165kg and 245kg.

    Even fewer details are available on the militant-looking SM-1, however the firm do claim a top speed of 90km/h, as well as a battery life of 150km.

    Using a brushless DC motor with water cooling, there is also a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, hydraulic shock and upside down forks.

    Is the body made of Duroplast? Does it have the get up and go to pass a horse drawn cart? Does is come with a case of stoic resignation and a longing for the good old times spent under the Hammer and Sickle? I'm only ask cause it looks like this thing came straigh out of 1960s Motherland.

    “However, RBC reported that Ivanova was unable to name any specific advantages that the CV-1 had over a Tesla.”

    Can’t say I’m surprised.

    It's funny, from one angle it has some really cool lines, and from another, the worst ever. That's talent.
