Lightning Motorcycles announced the official launch of the all-new Lightning Strike, a fully electric motorcycle. Strike’s design is intended to blend elements of track-ready performance, daily rideability and comfort, as well as aerodynamic efficiency to extend range at higher speeds. With a sportbike esthetic, Strike shares clear design DNA with the LS-218 halo bike in a slightly more compact package. Ergonomic focus on rider triangle geometry positions the seat, handlebars and footpegs to make Strike feel like a natural extension of the rider.
Based on architecture and innovation developed with the Lightning LS-218 Superbike, Strike is engineered for the track but designed for the street. Strike’s fully liquid cooled AC induction motor is capable of producing 90 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque in the standard version of Strike and 120 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque in Strike Carbon Edition configuration. The standard Strike has a top speed of 135 mph while Strike Carbon Edition pushes its top speed to 150 mph.
Strike Carbon Edition is the ultimate version of Strike. True to its name, Strike Carbon Edition features full carbon fiber bodywork handcrafted at Lightning’s in-house carbon studio. Strike Carbon Edition is also fully configured with 120 horsepower, 180 lb-ft torque motor, 20 kWh battery and Level 3 DC fast charging as standard.
