*Lightning electric motorcycle beats gasoline bikes at Pikes Peak*



Lightning Motorcycles has beaten the best gas motorcycles during the first
5 days of practice at Pike's Peak. Carlin Dunne on Lightning's electric
superbike is 16.044 seconds faster than the second fastest team with French
champion Bruno Langlois on a replica of Carlin Dunne's 2012 record setting
Ducati Multistrade race bike. This is the first time in history that an
electric bike has beaten top gas bike competitors on the same playing
field. For some, this might be a small history, but for Lightning, we see
this as a beginning of a huge change in this world. We want to celebrate
this accomplishment with you.



Richard Hatfield says: “This technology will drive the future of racing.
We always knew what we had in the performance of our electric bikes but it
takes time for the world to comprehend and accept a huge change like this.
It took 50 years for people to accept a car was better transportation than
a horse.  Now here is the top rider in the world at this race, at the top
of his game, putting his seal of approval on us by leaving combustion and
going electric.”

*Lightning At Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show*



Lightning shown case Lightning Superbike and Sport bike at Pacific Coast
Dream Machine show in April. The organizer wrote a nice article about
Lightning.



"... These solar powered bikes aren't just good for the environment—they're
also very kind to the pocketbook.....(Lightning) On the highway, we can go
about 100 miles on just $1.20 worth of electricity," says Hatfield. "Even
at our top speed of over 218 mph, we calculated that we were still
achieving an equivalent of over 50 mpg."....And those are solid,
clean-energy facts we can all get behind."
