Welcome Riders to my blog.
Due to the rise of electric motorcycles everywhere, the world and industry are changing into better and more innovative realms. They are surpassing fuel-powered motorcycles in every way possible. Whether it be power, range, agility, racing, etc.
But, most people still believe or think that electric motorcycles can not surpass our traditional gasoline motorcycles. So, this post is dedicated to busting this myth.
Therefore, In this post, I will be discussing a little about electric motorcycles. After which we will be talking about the “Top 5 fastest motorcycles in the world right now!!!.“
Here is the List of the Top 5 Worlds Fastest electric motorcycles in the World:-
In the below table, I have included the most crucial pieces of information like the top speed of the e-bikes and their 0-60 mph measure. These measures are the most important measure to the riders reading the article.
Let’s start the discussion with the world’s fastest e-bike that has surpassed even the Ninja H2R superbike.
|Electric Bike||Top Speed||0-60 mph in seconds|
|Voxan Wattman||283.182 mph (455.737 km/h)||3.4 sec|
|Lightning LS218||218 mph (352 kmph)||2.2 sec|
|Energia Ego+ RS||150 mph (241 kmph)||2.6 sec|
|Damon Hypersport||200 mph (322 kmph)||3 sec|
|Arc Vector||124 mph (200 km/h)||3.1 sec|
Voxan Wattman – World’s Fastest Electric Motorcycle (283 mph)
Voxan Watman is one of the fastest electric motorcycles on the planet right now having a top speed of 283.182 mph (455.737 km/h).
Actually, Voxan Motors initially designed two models for their e-bike one for normal use and another for the one we are talking about here. They were called on-road Wattman and the high-performance Wattman.
The team at Venturi and Voxans facilities in Monaco has designed a special, high-performance version of the Wattman using state-of-the-art technology. And, this piece of machine has also sealed its place in history as the world’s fastest motorcycle on the planet.
Actually, the Voxan Wattman is faster than the Ninja H2R. According to webbikeworld, “With 998cc in-line four supercharged engines, the Ninja H2R can reach the top speed of 400 km/h”.
So, comparing the top speed of a gas power motorcycle vs the electric-powered motorcycle Voxan Wattman won the prize for the world’s fastest bike not only in the e-bike segment but in every segment.
According to Forbes, “ Talking about the 2020 performance of Wattman, it broke no less than 11 world records for electric motorcycles – weighing over 300 kg class, with an average of 366.94 km/h over one mile and an instantaneous speed fo 408 km/h.”
Also, the data I found from Venturi’s official youtube channel says, “With a speed of 456 km/h (283 mph), Max Biaggi and the Voxan Wattman broke 21 world speed records at the Kennedy Space Center. The Voxan Wattman remains the fastest electric motorcycle in the world.”
So, with all the data and facts, “The Voxan Wattman is the world’s fastest electric motorcycle with a top speed of 283.182 mph (455.737 km/h)”.
The Lightning LS218 is the world’s second-fastest electric motorcycle. According to Wikipedia, “With a top speed of 218 mph (351 km/h), the production LS218 is faster than any other street-legal motorcycle, and tops the list of the fastest production motorcycle.”
If you read its name only “Lightning LS218”, here 218 actually represents its top speed of 218mph. There is a little history behind it, In 2012, the crew set a land speed record with an average speed of 215.96 miles per hour that include a 218-mph run – it inspired the model’s name.
According to intelligentliving.co, “LS-218 can easily accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.2 seconds, 0-100 in 5.5 seconds, and it can accelerate from 100 mph to 150 mph in 2 seconds!!
That’s the reason Lighting LS-218 is also the best because it is equipped with a 200 horsepower (150 kW) liquid-cooled Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motor, offering 168 ft-lbs of torque.
But this ridiculously fast motorcycle is not that budget-friendly, as its price ranges from $38,888 – $46,888. But, the company has also built a smaller and cheap version of this series known as “Lightning strike” which was launched in March 2018. It was priced at only $13,000.
Damon Motors are new in the market launched at CES in January 2020 and is based in Canada. It was founded by Jay Giraud, and Dom Kwong – these visionaries decided to change the market completely.
Before I appreciate this Damon’s electric motorcycles and talk about their features, let’s know about their top speed (which is the main motto of this blog).
The Damon Hypersport offer high-performance spec offering a top speed of 200mph (322 km/h). It can accelerate from 0-60 in merely 3 seconds.
So, I will place Damon Hypersport’s motorcycle 3rd in the world’s fastest electric motorcycle in this list. Damon has 4 different models lined up with little specs change.
The Damon Premier and Hypersport (HS) have a top speed of 200 mph and a range of 200 miles. But, the price difference is there Damon Premier costs MSRP $40,000 and Hypersport costs $28,000.
Apart from these models, Damon has introduced two other budget-friendly models Damon SX and SE which costs MSRP $24,000 and $19,000 respectively.
The core difference is Damon SX has a top speed of 155 mph and a combined range of 150 miles while Damon SE has got a little compromise on the specs as its price.
The SE model of Damon has a top speed of 120 mph and a combined range of 108 miles which is not bad but I think they should lower the price a little.
Leaving aside these models, the real electric superbike from Damon is Premier and Hypersport. Damon motorcycles are known as the world’s smartest and safest all-electric motorcycles.
Damon Hypersport is powered with 200hp of power along with the 200Nm of torque that is capable to push it to reach the top speed of 200 mph (322 kmph). This electric superbike can deliver a range of 322 km on a single charge and you can expect a better range in city areas.
These electric superbikes are equipped with Damon’s shift system that electronically adjusts the riding position on the go which is done by moving the footpegs and the handlebars. With this, riders have the choice of opting for any riding position either sporty or comfortable positions.
The feature that made the Damon motorcycle known as the “tesla of Motorcycle” is the feature of the Co-pilot system. The model is shown in the video below:-
The Damon Hypersport got a co-pilot system, it builds a 360-degree safety net in order to predict hazards and warn the riders up ahead. You can see this in the video above clearly.
So, Damon Hypersport is the smartest and safest motorcycle in this list apart from being in the top 3 in terms of speed.
Energia Ego+ RS
Italian manufacturers have always been famous for their ability to combine elegant and attractive designs and advanced technology with the desire for maximum performance.
For several years now Energia Ego born in the same Italian city as the famous Vespa scooters have been at the forefront of the ranking of the most powerful and sophisticated electric motorcycles on the streets all over the world.
The Energia Ego+ RS is equipped with a synchronous oil-cooled motor with permanent magnets. It provides a peak power of 126 kW – 171 Hp and has a torque of 222 Nm.
With this power and torque, Energia Ego+ RS can reach a top speed of 150 mph (240 km/h). And, the acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0 – 60 mph) takes only 2.6 sec.
With this, The Engeria Ego Plus RS secures the fourth position of being the world’s fastest electric motorcycle.
The Energia has two models manufactured one is Energia Ego+ and Energia Ego+ RS. The only key difference between these models is the acceleration time of 0-100 km/h. The Energia Ego took 2.8 sec and the later version is faster by 2 sec by acceleration 0 -60 mph in 2.6 sec.
Well, I don’t think that it matters for the end user whose only need is to go from A to B (Work from home or vice versa).
Coming to the final electric motorcycle that holds the capability to come under the “Top 5 fastest electric motorcycles” is Arc Vector. It is one of the smartest and most futuristic electric motorcycles in the market featuring top-class technology.
The Arc vector produces 133 horsepower and 109 ft/lbs torque produced by its motor and 399 V battery pack. With this power and torque, the Arc vector can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and have a top speed of 200 km/h.
The weight of this e-bike is 220 kg and changing time is considerably low, it only takes 40 mins for a full charge.
Now, let’s talk a little about the Arc Vector technology that makes it the smartest and most innovative electric motorcycle in the market.
Arc Vector is the only motorcycle equipped with Human Machine Interface (HMI) also known as “the Angel Edition program”. it is a unique Arc pilot system that delivers a transformational riding experience, providing you with feedback and notifications, keeping your journey safe.
They have partnered with Hedon to develop the bespoke Arc Zenith helmet and facilitate the HUD in helmets. They are working on their body armor, and smart helmets, to enhance the riding experience and safety of the riders.
Arc Vector comes in the list of the “top 5 worlds fastest electric motorcycles” having a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph).
I created this blog post for those riders who have always been skeptical about the electric motorcycle not producing enough performance. So, if you have read this blog post completely then you would have got to know the real data.
Electric bikes had been built and experimented upon at least 10 years ago from now. And these e-bikes have come a long way and will rule the market in the upcoming time. It is just a matter of time before these electric motorcycles become budget friendly for end-consumers. Thanks for reading the article have a safe ride!!!
