It's not nitrous. It's KERS (kinetic energy recovery system). I tried this motorcycle in content creator. I really want this now, haha.

Braking then accelerating with a press of L3 gives you a brief speed boost. Nitrous lasts longer.

Since the KERS system is in the game with the yellow bar, it would be really cool if they can modify it to fit what NoS would play as.

All I wanna know is where does it rank among the other motorcyles in race performance?  And What's its top speed?  Does the top speed rival that of the Bati or Hakuchou?

I just tested this on PS3 Creator which is working offline.

 

It basicly does not do a wheelie, maybe sometimes raises wheel but drops back down right away.

 

Thank you for confirming what I sadly suspected.

 

 

Could this be because of the bike handling changes andnot the bike itself?
*fingers crossed*

 

I highly doubt that, since the current bike issues are all when the bike is in the air and it acts like it's still on the ground.  There's always the possibility that another bug is at play here, but I doubt it.

Anyone notice R* changed the motorcycle physics, you can no longer perform a "stoppie". I was able to before patch.

It's bugged, not changed (thankfully).  There was an issue with BMX bikes not being able to backflip, so Rockstar fixed that.  In the process they broke everything else you can do on any bike.  They're aware of it and have acknowledged on Twitter that they're working on it.

They should seriously update the Turismo with KERS. At least then it would be on par with the Zentorno. + IRL Laferrari also has KERS.

 

PS KERS means cherry in my language, just saiyan.

People are only calling it NOS because that's what everyone was calling it when the effect got hacked last year.

- 'NOS' is a brand name, not an interchangeable description of nitrous oxide.

- the Lectro does not utilise a nitrous system, it uses a kinetic energy recovery system.

Reporting my findings: If you're looking for raw power and speed, the Lectro is seemingly a mid-tier bike. Just tested out the Akuma (top-tier bike in terms of acceleration and only slightly lower top speed than the Bati 801) against the Lectro on the eastern highway from Los Santos to Paleto Bay. Both fully modded. Top speed: The Akuma hits roughly 120 MHP on the in-game speedometer (Online) while the Lectro reaches roughly 115 MHP. The Lectro hits 125 MPH for the short burst of 4 seconds with KERS active and than quickly drops back to 115. When I had finally reached Paleto Bay, my friend was about 2900ft behind (Using the in-game map's measuring ruler).

We did two acceleration tests: one with KERS in use and one without. Both times Akuma had no trouble out-running the Lectro in a 1000ft dash, though, with KERS active, the Lectro seemed to be slightly catching-up to the Akuma but quickly drops back down to it's normal state after the short burst of 4 seconds of KERS.

*For those that don't know how KERS work: The special ability bar from sinlger player appears whenever you get onto the bike. That, of course, is KERS and it lasts for about 4 seconds while giving you increased acceleration and top speed. The catch is, the bar will only fill back up as long as you're not accelerating but still in motion and takes about 6 to 7 seconds to refill.

I hope this helps people give an idea to the kind of performance that the Lectro is caplable of. Personally, I am abit disappointed for a bike that costs three-quarters of a million dollars to buy and one of the last heist vehicles you unlock.

Looks really nice. It's quite similar to Ducati Streetfighter.

I better be able to do stunts 50x as far with that price tag

 
Either this thing doesn't wheelie at all, or I've not seen one real bike rider yet.  Not one of them has pulled a wheelie at high speed.  Surely there's got to be at least one stunter in the world that's made a video!
sadly it doesnt wheelie, almost a deal breaker for me if it didnt have nos

I really hate it when those video titles basically only say "HEIST HEIST HEIST DLC DLC HEIST HEIST GTA V GTA V"

Like yeah, we haven't noticed that before.

  There could still be some hope ..Because when you test drive a vehicle in the creator is has no mods on it .

 

and if you use a stock ruffian doesn't it has trouble doing wheelie as well???    once i put turbo,engine and transmission on my ruffian the wheelies were way better and had more power to pull up ..

 

maybe its the same with the lectro ??? hopefully .
