Stealth Motorcycle for Special Forces being Tested (PHOTOS+VIDEO)

An off-road stealth motorbike is currently being fielded for use by U.S. Special Forces.

The MMX, created by Zero Motorcycles, sports a nearly silent powertrain and is completely electric. It also has full blackout capabilities, wiring for infared lighting systems and keyless ignition for super-quick starts.

β€œIt was a very rewarding experience for the Zero team to go through such an exacting development process. The military needed a very specific set of core features on the MMX, and we were incredibly thankful to work side-by-side with them to deliver such a unique product,” said Abe Askenazi, Chief Technology Officer for Zero Motorcycles.

The bike’s low profile look is completed by a matte black finish, and with no intake or exhaust, the off-roader can operate when submerged up to one meter. Two modular batteries provide more than two-hours of riding time per charge.
