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.
Lightning Motorcycle has partnered with Race Tech for track ready suspension development, and every Lightning SuperBike is factory equipped with track mapping data acquisition. The Lightning Electric SuperBike has a usable freeway speed range of over 100 miles and a combined city and highway EPA range of over 150 miles and a top speed potential of over 218 mph.
„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.”
