Lightning Motorcycle has designed and produced a Sportbike sure to change the minds of anyone doubting electric motorcycle performance. The LS-218 is the fastest production motorcycle in the world – gas or electric. Retail price starts at $38,888 USD.
The Lightning SuperBike became the world’s fastest production electric motorcycle with the SCTA official World Record of 215.960 mph and a best timed run of 218.637 mph at Bonneville during Speedweek in August.
„There’s been, basically, ten years of development of electric motorcycles compared to a hundred years of evolution of internal combustion engine bikes,” said Lightning Motorcycles Founder and CEO. „I think we’re at the beginning of where these could go.”
