Voxan Wattman, Probably the Most Awesome Electric Motorcycle of the Planet

The first thing which came into my mind when I saw the new Voxan electric motorcycle was to choose a photo and simply post it, without any commentary. However, the Wattman Voxan unveiled hours ago in Paris is simply too cool to deprive you of some interesting details.

First of all, we're looking at a 200 hp bike which comes with a liqiud-cooled permanent magnet motor putting no less than 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque at your disposal... at all times!

Wattman dashes from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds and from 0 to 100 mph (160 km/h) in 5.9 seconds. Carbon wheels and belt drive, the new Voxan comes with an exoskeleton which contains the battery, motor and cooling systems.

All is smooth and perfectly integrated, from the lights to the digital dash, and from the chunky 240mm Pirelli Commander II rear tire.

The bike rools with four 230mm front rotors squeezed by 4D Beringer calipers and a 230mm in the rear. Add in a 43mm USD fork, dual swingarm with dual horizontal shocks to keep thins rolling smoothly up to 170 km/h (105.6 mph).

The 12.8kWh battery ensures 180 km (under 112 miles) of range, and it will charge to 80% in 30 minutes. The Wattman weighs in at 350 kg (772.6 lbs) and has a 1,705mm (67.1") wheelbase.

Price and availability are yet unknown but if Sasha Lakic decides to actually sell these, I guess it's going to be a "shut up and take my money" deal.

So the era of electric powercruiser begins...
