Lightning LS-218 E-Superbike | WILD FILE

Here is the actual LS-218 that Carlin Dunne rode to win the 2013 Pikes Peak motorcycle hill climb on display at the recent Hollywood premiere of On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter. The new documentary includes race footage of the Lightning.

While Harley-Davidson will spend this season carting Project LiveWire prototypes around the country to collect consumer input in advance of any actual production, California electric vehicle innovator Richard Hatfield expects to sell the first production version of his awesome LS-218 electric superbike ( ). Based on the motorcycle Carlin Dunne used to win the 2013 Pikes Peak motorcycle hill climb, beating the fastest gas-powered bike, a Ducati Multistrada, by more than 20 seconds, the 495-pound LS-218 is claimed to be the fastest production motorcycle ever sold, making in excess of 200 hp and an astounding 168 pound-feet of torque, with a top speed well beyond 200 mph. With performance specs like that, the base price of $38,888 seems more than reasonable.
