Right now, electric bikes are popping up left and right, each claiming to be the best at something, but then again, every manufacturer claims their product is the best.
But one thing Lightning Motorcycles can not only claim, but also attest, is the fact that their LS-218 is the world’s fastest electric bike.
Making its public debut a few days ago at the Quail Motorsport Gathering, the LS-218 is the street legal version of the bike that managed to score 346 km/h at the Bonneville Salt Flats, an achievement properly documented. The era of the gasoline dominance is quickly coming to and end.
In fact, the only downside of the Lightning LS-218 is the relatively low range (161 Km). But considering the fact that it can develop in excess of 200 Hp and 228 nm of torque, we can let that slide. After all, a quick recharge will get the bike back to full in 30 minutes. If you want to place your order now, be ready to spend $38.888, a sum that is quite steep for a bike, but completely justified.
