The Lightning motorcycle will have a street bike soon

Lightning Hits The Streets

Lightning Motorcycles has THE electric sport bike that will change your mind. If this sounds too wild of a claim the latest test drive and reviews certainly hails this bike as a winner, both on track and on the street.

Richard Hatfield, CEO and founder of Lightning Motorcycles whom I’ve had the privilege to meet in the past is quick to say that electric sport bike will change the minds of anyone who rides one. The Lightning is not only the fastest motorcycle you’ll probably ride, but according to Troy Siahaan on Motorcycle, it is the most performance he’s seen on any bikes, gasoline included. That is high praise indeed. I will have an interview with Richard coming up soon but in the meantime, enjoy his latest talk with CNN.

Those who doubt electric vehicles, EV in general have never driven one. Unfortunately, many never get to experience the thrill of the 100% available torque an electric motor has to offer on a motorcycle. The electric revolution will come through the electric motorcycle that much is sure.

Lightning Hits The Streets. Great news from Lightning, after six years of developing, tweaking and wiping out competition in the electric motorcycle race world, Lightning will market its production street bike soon. Based on its race bike, this bike promises nothing short of impressive performance. The street legal Lightning will have exactly the same internals as the race bike.

Would you rather I pull a price out of my magic trick hat from thin air? Sorry, there was no price at the time of publishing. Bad Commentarism!
