Posted on the 25 April 2014 by Nrjperera @nrjperera

DARPA has invested $100,000 on a tech company called Logos Technologies, to develop this silent hybrid bike. According to Popular Science, the bike will get powered by a hybrid electric/fuel drone engine that can be recharged by using JP 8 (a military jet fuel), diesel, and other fuels. It will also sport the body of RedShift MX off-road all-electric bike.
