Electric motorcycles are not as mainstream as other bikes and because of that they don’t as much attention as gas powered motorcycles. Just because they don’t receive as much attention doesn’t mean they aren’t as good as other bikes. In fact some of these electric bikes are pretty damn impressive. Take for example, the Lightning LS-218, a motorcycle which is not only fast for an electric bike, but also just plain fast. It produces 200 horsepower and 168 ft/lbs of torque, putting it right up there with best of the gas powered liter bikes. The fact that it is powered by electric motors means it has almost instant torque which gives it an advantage over gas bikes. This is probably the reason why it won the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb motorcycle class. I can’t wait for the chance to ride one of these things.
That is sooo crazy. More crazyness in the next video below!
