"We are very pleased that the motorcycle ran straight out of the box and we have found good correlation between our CFD (computational fluid dynamics) and the real-world test," says CEO Robert White.
“As expected we have uncovered some small technical elements for development, that we have been able to resolve and confidence is building all the time.”
The bike has a 100kW interim electric powertrain in the testing phase, but will use a 250kW motor when the team attempts to break the speed record at Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni salt flat in 2022.
The current 366.94km/h record was set in November 2020 on a Voxan Wattman ridden by former MotoGP rider Max Biaggi.
Apart from the speed record, the concept machine is very energy efficient. White says it allows you to go much further for the same amount of energy, making a tangible benefit on CO2 reduction.
