KillaJoule Three-Wheeled EV Motorcycle Breaks Bonneville Record at 216.5 MPH [Video]
text size: A- A+
The 250 hp KillaJoule averaged a speed of 191.488 mph (306.380 km/h) over the flying mile, with the absolute top speed achieved on the day being an even more impressive 216.505 mph (346.408 km/h). Eva, a University of Denver graduate in engineering, built her bike around a A123 system battery pack and an EVO Electric Ltd. engine.
This piece of news is very promising, since she managed to get within 2.5 mph (4 km/h) of the 219 mph (350 km/h) land speed record held by a conventionally powered internal combustion motorbike. We appreciate her devotement to the cause, and we hope to see her at Pikes Peak, again, as back in 2010 she set a few records there, as well (albeit in a different vehicle).
