Wattman, the electric motorcycle for speeding world records, arrives in a new version

It comes back, more powerful, lighter. The fastest electric motorcycle in the world Wattman is revisited a year after smashing several speed records on different courses in Châteauroux (Indre). Recording 366.94 km / hour on its odometer, this racing car has been produced since 2013 by Voxan, a French company created in 1995 in Issoire (Puy-de-Dôme) and acquired by Venturi in 2010. It is now based in Monaco .

New Wattman available in two models

For its new version, the Wattman is available in two models: “semi streamlined” and “naked”. Voxan claims that this new version “Has fallen below the 300 kilogram mark, which allows it to compete in the said category”. A new design of the Voxan-Saft battery allowed this weight gain. The power of this new Wattman is increased with a Mercedes EQ powertrain (from Formula E) of 320 kW (against 270 on the previous version).

YOUR INDICES

Produced in only a few copies in the Monaco factory, the Wattmans have only been used for competition since the brand’s takeover. Fans will therefore not be able to ride the fastest motorcycle in the world, unless their name is Max Biaggi…

Since November 15, the new Wattman began its high-speed tests at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, on the runway of NASA. “When the new Wattman is ready, new speed records will be attempted; certainly before the end of the first half of 2022 ”, adds Voxan in its press release.
