Built by Lightning Motorcycles, San Jose, CA, USA

Shout it from the rooftops: the fastest production motorcycle in the world is American, and it’s electric.  Lightning Motorcycles was founded in 2009 by richard Hatfield, and the “LS-218” is their premier product. It succeeds admirably at the company’s goal of providing superior performance while pushing the boundaries of possibility with electric motorcycles.  Can an e-bike be faster than any other motorcycle? Yes. Can it provide ease of use and an excellent rider experience? Yes. Can it out-perform a traditional sportbike in all ways? Lightning makes that look imminent.
