Posted By Lori Zimmer On August 16, 2011 @ 6:31 pm In Green Transportation,Innovation,News | No Comments
Lighting Motorcycles  just raised the bar for green transportation as it shattered the land speed record for electric bikes . Rider Paul Thede clocked in a blazing average of 206.079 miles per hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats, and he said that he hit a top speed of 208.38 mph during his ride. The Southern California Timing Association run beat last year’s 173.388 mph record by a landslide.
Lightning Motorcycles’ latest APS-Ω class electric motorcycle  is its fastest yet. The speed demon is powered by a top of the line 345 Volt 11 kilowatt-hour safe LiFEPo4 nano phosphate battery pack. The streamlined bike’s speed sets it in a class with traditional fuel-powered motorcycles .
