Trumpeted by Voxan as being “the most powerful electric motorcycle in the world,” the company’s new model, known as the WATTMAN, certainly has a lot to live up to. Given the specs, though (listed below), it certainly appears to have an arguable claim to the title.

For those unfamiliar with Voxan, the French motorcycle manufacturer has been releasing high-end bikes since back in 1999. It released a number of notable models up until 2009, when it was forced into liquidation, before then being acquired by Venturi Automobiles. The WATTMAN is the first model to be released since being acquired by the new owners.

As you can see in the image, the bike has something of a futuristic look to it — I suppose that will add to the allure for some people? Either way, now let’s talk about the fun stuff…

The WATTMAN, powered by the first Voxan-designed electric motor, possesses an impressive 200 HP with 200 Nm instant torque up to 10,500 rpm. The bike accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.137 mph) in just 3.4 seconds, and possesses a top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph). The range is impressive as well, possessing the capability of traveling as far as 180 km (112 miles) on a single charge.

And recharging doesn’t seem to be much of an issue — an 80% recharge can be achieved in less than half an hour! with the aid of the COMBO II European quick-charge standard.
