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.
