Voxan’s 367HP Wattman Aims To Set A New Electric Moto Landspeed Record

Jul 6, 2020

Category: Rides

Back in 2013 boutique French motorcycle marque, Voxan Motors unveiled its inaugural electric offering with the Wattman: an ultra-high-performance superbike with 203hp, 150ft-lbs of torque, and a sub-3.4-second 0-60mph time. After further refining the proton-powered two-wheeler over the last 7 years, Venturi — Voxan’s parent company — announced it would be attempting a new electric motorcycle land speed record on a specially-prepared Voxan Wattman with two-time WSBK and four-time 250cc World Champion (and Rossi rival), Max Biaggi at the helm.

And Voxan has now unveiled the final machine that Biaggi will attempt to set this new world record on. Voxan says this specially-prepped, 1,470-cell Wattman generates some 367hp while weighing in a 661lbs. Lightness could be added, though the hefty weight helps increase stability. Chasing the current record of 204.48mph (held by Ryuji Tsuruta on his Mobitec EV-02A racer), Biaggi was originally scheduled to take a crack at the record in June of 2020, but the ongoing pandemic has resulted in the date being pushed back to 2021 on the Salar de Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia. Only time will tell if Biaggi and his Wattman break the 205mph barrier to achieve a new world record. For more info check out the press release linked below.
