Voxan Motors Wattman Is the Fastest Electric Motorcycle In the World
Like an Electric Land Rocket
A Wild Machine
Rider Max Biaggi and Voxan Motors managed to make history for the Venturi Group’s 20th anniversary. The team set 11 new world speed records at the Châteauroux airfield in France. Yes, 11 records.
Perhaps the most impressive is achievement is the outright top speed, which was 408 km/h or 254 mph.
The team’s most exciting new record includes beating the “partially streamlined electric motorcycle over 300 kilos” record. They did so by achieving a speed of 366.94 km/h or 228.05 mph. This run beats out Ryuji Tsuruta and Mobitec EV-02A who help the record previously.
In accordance with FIM rules, the Voxan Wattman’s speed was measured from a flying start over 1 mile in opposite directions. The final speed for the record books was the average speed of the two runs. In the future, the team will target an average speed during these two runs of 400 km/h or 249 mph.
The team also beat the record for a non-streamlined version of the bike. They managed to remove the fairing and do 349.38 km/h or 217.14 mph.
