Lightning Motorcycles has broken the land speed record for the fastest electric motorcycle.
After running their test this past weekend, Lightning Motorcycles set the record at a top speed of 208.386 mph.
Lightning Motorcycles is a team led by Race-Tech’s Paul Thede, a veteran of the Salt Flats. He was the one who rode the bike and established the speed record at 335 km / h.
Thede thus became one of 65 who managed to exceed the speed of 320 km / h at Bonneville. However, he is the only one to have done so on an electric bike.
