Electric motorcycles now offer a viable alternative to their internal combustion engine counterparts thanks to fast-charging models featuring up to 320 km of range.
But a little-known British company wants to make the electric bikes of the future much faster.

To reach the goal, I designed White Motorcycle Concepts A unique prototype that you claim can break the land speed record.
After two years of development, the company unveiled the two-wheel drive, hydraulically powered electric motorcycle.
The current record holder, former world champion Max Biaggi, drove the world’s fastest electric Voxan Wattman motorcycle with a top speed of 408 km/h across two tracks in opposite directions over a flying mile at an average speed of 367 km/h.

As the name of the prototype suggests WMC250EVHe could win at that speed by a huge margin.
The bike features an opening that extends from front to back. This air duct system, dubbed the V-Air, makes it “the most aerodynamically efficient motorcycle in the world, according to its maker.
By pushing air through the middle of the bike rather than around it, the WMC250EV reduces drag by up to 70 percent – according to figures tested at the Horiba MIRA facility in the UK.

The electric drivetrain and battery packs are located on the lower half. The prototype also used a double-arm suspension system.
The rear wheel is driven by chain by two electric motors with a power of 30 kW. Two 20 kW motors power the front wheel. Together, they generate a total of 100 kilowatts, or 134 horsepower.
The bike is powered by a 15 kW lithium-ion battery. Most components are made of either carbon or aluminium.
Although the plan is to bring technology to the masses, this particular concept is entirely tailored to its passenger, Rob White.

White was a motorsport veteran with stints in Formula One, Le Mans Prototype, V8 supercar and World Endurance Championship. Its silhouette has been laser scanned to build the bike’s chassis.
The technology is now being tested by a record bid for British semi-aerodynamic electric motorcycles later this year. It is followed by the world record in 2022.
White believes that a bike that weighs 300 kilograms can achieve a speed of more than 400 kilometers per hour. It has an aerodynamic appearance.
