After has disappeared for a good number of years, Voxan has decided to reenter in the “race” of motorcycle manufacturers. Therefore it developed an entire new motorcycle which has all it needs to take your breath away.
The new bike was designed by Sasha Lakic, is entirely electric and has managed to take everybody by surprise when it made its debut at the Paris Motorcycle Show on December 2nd.
It is called the Wattman and currently is the fastest electric motorcycle available on the open market.
This electric beauty weighs 350 kg and at its heart lies an electric motor with permanent magnets and liquid cooling, that puts out a maximum power of 200 HP with 200 Nm of instant torque up to 10,500 rpm. This power is enough to send you to 100 kmph in only 3.4 seconds which is fairly impressive for an electric motorcycle.
Another impressive thing is the motorcycle’s architecture, as the new Wattman features an innovative exoskeleton which contains the battery, motor and cooling systems. You also get carbon wheels, a 240mm Pirelli Commander II rear tire and a 12.8kWh battery that can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes.
