VOXAN TO BREAK THE ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE LAND SPEED RECORD
Following development of the on-road version, the VOXAN WATTMAN – the first ever electric motorcycle “Made in Monaco” – was redesigned to create a high-performance version.
Designed by Sacha LAKIC, the machine will now attempt to set a new world land speed record in the category “electric motorcycles propelled by the action of one wheel in contact with the ground, partially streamlined, under 300 kg”.
Italy’s world motorcycle champion Max BIAGGI has been chosen to spearhead the challenge, riding the VOXAN WATTMAN. In 1994, he set a world land speed record of 164.198 km/h with a FAZI EGRAF, in the same category.
The six-time motorcycle racing world champion Max BIAGGI has been an official ambassador for VENTURI Automobiles since April 2018, and contributes to the group’s expansion by ensuring its representation at major events. Today, the group’s President Gildo PASTOR is renewing his faith in Max BIAGGI by placing the VOXAN WATTMAN in his capable hands.
Powered by the first Voxan electric motor with permanent magnets and liquid cooling, WATTMAN delivers a phenomenal power of 150 kW with 200 Nm instant torque up to 10,500 rpm.
It is positioned as the most powerful electric motorcycle ever built, at a much higher level of performance in many respects than the best combustion motorcycles.
The power is transmitted to earth by a 240 mm wide tyre, reaching 0-100 kph in 3.4 seconds and 0-160 kph in 5.9 seconds.
Synonymous with new sensations, WATTMAN offers driving pleasure in its purest form, equally capable of lightning acceleration and flexibility, thanks to its belt drive electric motor.
With an aluminium “exoskeleton” chassis housing integrating all the components of the powertrain, the VOXAN WATTMAN architecture is radically looking to the future. It is accompanied to the rear by a new type of parallelogram-shaped four-link suspension (two dual oscillating arms) that creates an extension of the battery pack towards the rear axle. This horizontality gives the bike stability and elegance.
« This aluminium housing which encloses the battery is the motorcycle’s signature. You can tell from this design that it is an electric machine. »

The VOXAN features an exceptional charging time of 80% in less than 30 minutes thanks to a “COMBO II” socket, the European quick charge standard.
This is less time than it takes to recharge a mobile phone. It can also be plugged to a standard household socket, anywhere thanks to its integrated charger.
Its ultra-compact 12.8 kWh battery ensures 180 km of range.
