In 2013, LS 218 electric sports bike from Lightning motorcycle corporation beat the gasoline counterparts with the top speed of 218 mph. It was a historical win for electric motorcycle industry and for the team at Lightning motorcycle.

The new Lightning Strike's production is based on three principles. The first one is the development of the best technology in the world. Second is proving the superiority in technology through competition. The third and last principle is reducing the cost of producing the technology to make it affordable.

Design and aerodynamics

The design of the Lightning Strike blends elements such as track readiness, daily commuting, and comfort. The most important ingredient of the blend is the aerodynamics. The extensive wind tunnel testing lead to the most aerodynamic electric motorcycle with a 30% reduction in aerodynamic drag. As a result, the Lightning Strike shows significant improvement in highway range.

Furthermore, the Lightning Strike significantly resembles the LS 218. The styling has more compactness when we compare the two designs. The significant focus on rider triangle geometry results in comfortable riding stance. It also feels like its a natural extension of the rider. Overall, its a most dynamic package when it comes to electric sports motorcycle.
