Electric drag bike breaks 324 kmph record
Ever heard of an electric bike going at a speed of 324 kmph? It’s true! The astonishing part is that the bike reached this top speed in 6.94 seconds from a standing start. The Lawless Electric Rocket drag bike entered the record books once again with its top motorcycle drag racer Larry “Spiderman” McBride at the Virginia Motorsports Park near Petersburg, Virginia. Lawless Industries and Orange County Choppers found the answer to make this bike more powerful in a newly-designed 355V/14.2kWh Li-ion battery pack weighing in at 121 kg and packing 1,350 bhp that was built by Derek Barger of High Tech Systems. The bike features an electric DC Drive System, a 13-inch diameter, 36-volt GE motor with a peak output of about 1,000 bhp built by NEDRA veteran Dennis Berube and a 4,000 amp Zilla 4K EHV motor controller designed and built by Otmar Ebenhoech.
