Lightning Motorcycles is turning the sportbike world upside down … with electricity.

Lightning Motorcycles 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.

Their innovation and multiple world speed records make Lightning Motorcycles CEO Richard Hatfield very excited about the future.

“We’ve demonstrated that alternatively fueled vehicles can win against current competition with currently available technology. And this ultimately means a ‘win’ for everyone,” he says. “Solar energy-fueled vehicles are not just a theoretical concept to be realized sometime in the distant future. They are a reality today. They can compete head to head with gasoline powered vehicles, without leaving a carbon footprint.” 

The decision to go with solar was an easy one for Hatfield, and he especially enjoys being able to show nay-sayers that the impossible is, in fact, possible.

“Many people have this idea that electric vehicles are not reliable, that the technology is not really viable,” he explains. “Lightning Motorcycles is showing that using alternative energy doesn’t automatically mean you have to compromise.”

Lightning Motorcycle has been involved in researching and manufacturing electric two wheeled transportations (E2W) since 2006. Lightning builds the fastest production motorcycle in the world, has won many road racing competitions and set several world speed records.

Lightning’s solutions have been used in various applications, including fuel cell hybrid electric buses, hybrid cars, electric motorcycles, electric ATV, electric yard trucks for ferrying shipping containers, professional ocean racing yachts, and many other areas.

Their mission is to build electric 2-wheel transportation (E2W) that has superior efficiency, performance, and affordability than current gasoline alternatives. Learn more at
