Washington, Apr 16 ANI | 8 months ago

The US military has issued a grant for the development of a stealth motorcycle.

According to Defense Tech, the motorcycle's "stealthiness" will be a product of its hybrid-electric engine, which will allow soldiers to drive for long periods on rough terrain while emitting virtually no engine noise.

And according to Logos Technologies Euro" the company responsible for building the engine Euro" this will be the first hybrid-electric dirt bike ever built.

Wade Pulliam, manager of advanced concepts at Logos Technologies, told Defense Tech that the US military has a growing need "to operate small units far from logistical support."

So, he said, it will "increasingly rely on adaptable, efficient technologies like this hybrid-electric motorcycle."

Military officials have also enlisted a company called BRD Motorcycles to help build the bike, which will be used by special operations teams.
