Damon Takes The Danger Out Of Riding With Its 4G-Linked 200HP Smart Bike

With the rise in electric vehicles and digital smart tech, it’s no surprise to see an ever-growing number of manufacturers and startups introducing new “smart models” that push the envelope of EV performance, safety, and technology. One such outfit is the Vancouver, BC-based electric bike firm, Damon Motorcycles which just unveiled the latest iteration of its Hypersport HS bike at CES 2020.

According to Damon, the Hypersport HS offers sub-3-second 0-60mph times, a 200-mile range, a 200mph top speed, and a claimed power output of 200hp and 147.5 ft-lbs of torque. And while the electric superbike’s claimed raw performance metrics are admittedly impressive, what sets the model apart from other electric motorcycles is its bevy of safety-related tech which includes a collection of sensors, radars, and cameras to scan the environment for potential hazards and alert the rider via haptic feedback in the handlebars. The 4G-connected HS also gets a 6” LED display, an electronically adjustable rider’s triangle that can alter the position rear-sets, clip-ons, and seat to go from a race-tuck to a more commuter-friendly upright stance. Preorders are now being accepted for the Hypersport HS for $24,995, though Damon is also offering a “Premier” edition that’s limited to only 25 units and comes with Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and a single-sided carbon fiber swing-arm.
Reserve: $24,995
