In the spirit of the upcoming South Coast Bike Fest, we thought we would share this quick video on the awesome Lightning LS-218 Motorcycle. This is the worlds fastest production motorcycle. Here is the kicker… It’s electric and the record was set using solar power energy.

This bike really goes to show that anything is possible with solar.

Here is some information about this mean machine.

Lightning LS-218 Motorcycle has designed and produced a Sportbike sure to change the minds of anyone doubting electric motorcycle performance. The LS-218 is the fastest production motorcycle in the world – gas or electric. Retail price starts at $38,888 USD which is roughly R470 000.

The Lightning LS-218 SuperBike is equally suited to track days or weekend rides on your favourite back roads. The Lightning SuperBike became the world’s fastest production electric motorcycle with the SCTA official World Record of 347 Kph (and a best-timed run of 351Kph at Bonneville during Speedweek back in August 2016.

Their SuperBike also holds the world land speed record for the fastest production motorcycle, electric or otherwise. Making it not only the fastest electric bike available but the fastest bike available (period). Oh yeah, did we mention that this record was set using all solar energy? We can do a record-setting run for about $.08. roughly R0,96 cents, you can’t even buy chappie for that.

We would like to end things off by giving a shout out and say a big thanks you to the good people over at Motorbikes News.
