Model M could put Tesla on two wheels

However, if there’s anything we can do to convince Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk to build the thing, we’re willing to do it.

Codenamed Model M, this electric superbike is the handiwork of London-based digital doodler Jans Slapins. If that name rings a bell, Slapins is the chap who teased us with the weird, lovely, again-completely-unofficial Lamborghini Rat Rod concept last year.

As it’s completely fictional and lives only within Photoshop, we could speculate wildly on the spec of the bike. However, Jans tells us he wanted to keep the electric two-wheeler as real-wheel feasible as possible.

So, like all Teslas, nestled within the aluminium frame is, essentially, a colossal laptop battery, powering an electric motor on the rear wheel.

And we mean colossal. Jans reckons his bike would pack a 150kWh battery pack: the standard Tesla Model S, for comparison, uses a 70kWh power pack.
