Damon Motorcycles Electric Superbike can go 200 mph

One of the fastest superbikes

The limited edition Damon Hypersport electric superbike is one of the fastest bikes available on the market. With a top speed of 200 mph, it's faster than the fastest bike from Suzuki - the Hayabusa, which has a top speed of 194 mph.


The 200 HP superbike can go 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds and has a range of more than 200 miles. It takes less than 3 hours to charge its 21.5 kWh battery.

It transforms

The Damon Hypersport is more than just speed and range. It has some pretty neat features as well including the ability to transform between sport mode and commuter mode at the push of a button.


Sport mode is the ideal riding position for high speed rides on the freeway. Commuter mode is for city traffic where there is a lot of stopping and starting.


When you change modes, the Hypersport changes the position of the windshield, handlebars, footrest, and seat. 

It senses danger

With sensors all around, the Hypersport has some sort of spidey sense (you know, like Spiderman). It senses danger from every direction and warns you of it through haptic feedback on the handlebars. So even if you can't see the danger, you'll know that it's there.


There's also an always-on high definition rear-facing camera so you can easily see what's behind you.

Hypersport HS vs Premier

There are two version of the HyperSport: HyperSport HS and HyperSport Premier. Both are pretty much the same except the Premier has higher quality brakes, suspension, swing arm, one-of-a-kind colorway, and a different motor as far as we know. 


The Premier is limited to only 25 units for $39,995 each and it sold out quickly. The HS version is not limited and cost $24,955 each.

Pros

  • Faster than most superbikes
  • Decent 200 mile range
  • Alerts you of danger via haptic feedback
  • Changeable riding position
  • Quiet
  • Less maintenance compared to gasoline bikes
  • Environmentally friendly (zero emission)

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Premier version sold out
  • Charging takes 3 hours vs a minute to fill up a gas tank

Conclusion:

The future may be electric but for it to be true, charging needs to a lot less than an hour. Ideally it should be a few minutes. Or have stations where you can exchange depleted or weak batteries for new ones at a small cost. 


As for the bike itself, it's fast, has good range, and has a pretty cool safety feature that alerts you of danger via haptic feedback on the handlebars. Also, at the push of a button, you can change the riding position to suit your needs.
