The Voxan Wattman was made to break records, and on the morning of Oct. 31, it did just that. Italian rider Max Biaggi rode the bike at the Chateauroux airfield in France, breaking existing global records and setting 11 new ones. Designed by Monegasque electric motorcycle company Voxan, the Voxman Wattman is, in fact, three different bikes in standard, partly streamlined and streamlined form.
The bike runs on a 15.9kWh battery that provides 317kW (425hp) of raw power, with dry ice being used to absorb the resultant heat and cool the bike. Instead of a front brake or a parachute, the Voxman Wattman relies on a rear brake and run-off time to slow down. The Voxan team originally intended to break the world record for the fastest electric motorcycle back in July at the Salar de Uyuni salt flat located in Bolivia. However, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the team postponed its efforts until next year.
The record the team was aiming to reach was a top speed of at least 330 kmh (205 mph). While this would beat the previous record of 327 km/h set by Japanese rider Ryuji Tsuruta on the Motibec electric motorcycle, it still fell short of reaching the top speed of 218 mph set by Lightning Motorcycles L2-218 electric bike at the Bonneville Salt Flats in the United States. Fortunately, the Voxman team was able to adjust their timeline to late October, resulting in Biaggi’s record-breaking run in France where he broke five world records and set six new ones.
During his many runs at the Chateauroux airfield found in France, Biaggi achieved a top speed of 408 kmh (254 mph). He broke the record for the “partly streamlined electric motorcycle exceeding 300 kilos,” achieving a maximum speed of 366.94 kmh (228.05 mph) on the semi-streamlined Voxan Wattman and beating records previously set by the Mobitec and Lightning LS 218 electric motorcycles. This race was executed from a flying start over the course of a mile (1.6km) in two opposite directions, as per FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme) rules.
Biaggi, who is a six-time motorcycle racing world champion, also bagged the record for the streamlined Voxan Wattman after reaching a top speed of 349.38 (217.14 mph). He and his team also set new records for a quarter mile on the partially streamlined bike with a flying start, a quarter mile on the nonstreamlined bike with a flying start, and one mile on the partially streamlined bike with a flying start among others, achieving 11 world records in total.
