Lightning Motorcycle World's Fastest Electric SuperBike- Bonneville 2011
Run 6 of 6. This was a "video run" as the camera was right in front of Paul's face. We had some side wind (notice the bike is leaning) but the camera was angled a bit so it looks worse than it was. Paul's previous run was faster at 218.6 mph and is the first electric motorcycle to go over 200 mph. Check out the black and orange markers on the sides of the track. They are 1/4 mile apart. By the way we used 18 cents of electricity on this run and were getting the equivalent of over 50 mpg at over 200 mph. The amount of energy in the batteries would allow over 100 miles of range at normal highway speeds (not 200+).
