Yes, that was a working Batpod that just blazed down the street and it was built by the world’s most awesome Dad. He made it for his ten and twelve-year-old sons. He describes it thusly:
An experimental Batpod inspired vehicle with Alltrax AXE 4844 controller running Mars ME0709 electric motor. This is designed and built specially for my two 10 and 12 year old kids. Battery pack consists of 4 lead-acid car batteries giving maximum of 50 volts and top speed is set to around 60km/h (37mph).
Sure, you may be wondering what two kids are doing riding around on a homemade motorcycle contraption with an exposed chain in shorts and Crocs, but that’s because you’re a grown-up. You know darn well those kids don’t care. If they fall and get some horrible scar on their leg, they’ll probably think it’s cool that they got it riding a Batpod.
