The new Voxan Wattman is the world’s most powerful electric motorcycle – and it may just be the greenest adrenaline rush on the road. The bike can reach 60 mph in only 3.4 seconds, it’s capable of hitting over 100 mph. The superbike’s 12.8kWh battery pack can re-charge in about half an hour, and it plugs into any standard European socket.

The Voxan Wattman is engineered in Monaco and built in France. Weighing in at 350 kg, the sleek bike can travel 180 km (about 111 miles) on a single charge. Its belt-drive electric motor is liquid cooled, and it incorporates permanent magnets. Able to deliver 200 HP, the bike blows past stereotypes of boring electric vehicles.

The Wattman is primarily a concept bike, and it has already made a name for itself at the Paris Motorcycle Show. Voxan has plans to hand-build the Wattman on an order-by-order basis, but the company has not stated whether they will ever go into expanded production. While no price is currently listed, the world’s fastest electric motorcycle may well have the world’s heftiest price tag. Still, it’s encouraging to see that when it comes to pure power, it pays to go electric.

    Pathetic. There are now over 5 companies in the USA with over 100 mph electric motorcycles. The Voxan does not even qualify as a beginner’s street bike. Try looking at what North America is producing before thinking too deeply about a French/Monaco two wheeled cordless electric…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cX-_eB8nkk…..or…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WypZvsIj8-k…And above all, at 350 kg (771 pounds?) that thing is a mobile paperweight! There are elec mc’s out there that are under $20k with a spare batt for nearly 150 miles range.

    Ok, i am hanging out for a Electric Motorcycle that doesn’t cost more than 20K, and can go for at least 300km.

    There is a issue here, and it goes back to designing for the market. Here we have a big company used to designing road bikes for faster speed.

    What most people want is a practical cycle that is cost effective and can travel at or just above the speed limit to do your daily commute and do a few errands.

    then again speed is fun. :)
