Fastest Electric Motorcycles On The Market Today

Speed. It's the fundamental reason most riders love motorcycles; there's nothing like riding a maximum speed of 150 mph with just only a twist of the throttle. As a result, many electric motorcycle manufacturers today strive to create the fastest, most reliable, and easy-to-ride bikes.

Which are the fastest electric motorcycles on the road? Curious about what performance an electric motor can produce for a motorcycle? You've come to the right place! Read on to see our top choice for 2022.

This list answers your every desire for performance and speed with its rundown of the 11 fastest electric motorcycles available today.

11Harley-Davidson LiveWire

Harley-Davidson LiveWire

180 km/h - 110 mph

The LiveWire, the first Harley-Davidson® electric motorcycle, has the same ability to accelerate as any of the company’s gas-powered models – a hugely important factor in a vehicle purchased often for the thrill and fun of high-powered speed. As a result, it is a great choice for people who want to be environmentally responsible without sacrificing their bike’s performance.

The LiveWire accelerates from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3 seconds. This makes it perform like many of this year’s hypercars cost millions. The LiveWire has a top speed of 110 mph (180 km/h) and can travel up to 146 miles (235 km) on one charge, which is less than $40,000.

193 km/h - 120 mph

The Tarform claims a top speed of 120 mph (193 km/h) from a 41-kW electric motor will give you plenty of high-speed thrills, but the city range of 120 miles (193 km) would suggest that you won’t be able to hang out in the triple digits for very long.

The bike features a 10 kWh battery that can be charged using Level 2 charging with a claimed two-hour charge time (or 0-80% in 50 minutes), but it lacks DC Fast Charging capabilities that are becoming more popular.

9Energica Eva Ribelle

Energica Eva Ribelle

200 km/h - 124mph

The Energica Eva Ribelle is a great bike that can reach speeds of 124 mph and has a range of 249 miles. It also only takes 42 minutes to recharge it to 80% capacity. In addition, the Eva Ribelle has several cool features, including keyless ignition, cruise control, and traction control. Plus, it can zip from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds—one of the fastest electric motorcycles on the market!

8Arc Vector

Arc Vector

200 km/h - 124mph

The Arc Vector is an excellent premium motorcycle and one of the fastest-accelerating road-legal electric bikes on the market. It maxes out at 125 mph and takes less than 3 seconds to reach 60 mph.

The Arc Vector is a great choice for anyone looking for a motorbike that's both powerful and versatile. The Arc Vector has the best battery Samsung has to offer, and it offers several power modes as well as cruise control.

7Zero SR/S, SR/F

Zero SR/S, SR/F

200 km/h - 124mph

Zero Motorcycles makes some of the best electric motorcycles out there and claim to have the longest-ranged motorcycle available today. Newly updated for 2022, the Zero SR and SR/F sportbike and streetfighter can all do 124 mph. And those updates also let them go faster for longer between charges.

The 2022 Zero SR/S Standard and SR/F, each equipped with fairings, start at $20,595 and $20,095, respectively. And both have fully-adjustable Showa suspension and J.Juan brakes. Plus, they're each over 50 pounds lighter than Energica's bikes.

6Evoke 6061

Evoke 6061

230 km/h – 142 mph

The Evoke 6061 is powered by a 120 kW (161 hp) liquid-cooled electric motor that enables it to reach a top speed of up to 230 km/h (142 mph). This makes it faster than leading American electric motorcycles such as the Zero SR/F and the Harley-Davidson LiveWire.

Although it's pricey, the Evoke 6061 is in line with Energica's Italian racing electric motorcycles and slightly above a premium model of Zero's SR/F. And, of course, it’s still cheaper than the infamously expensive Harley-Davidson LiveWire’s $29,799 price tag.

5Energica EGO+ / RS

Energica EGO+ / RS

240 km/h - 150 mph

Energica, a company founded in 2010 by CRP Group, is one of the few high-profile all-electric motorcycle brands. And while some of its bikes appear elsewhere on this list, the #5 fastest street-legal electric motorcycle is an Energica. Specifically, the 150-mph 2022 Energica Ego+ RS Version.

Energica has sharpened its flagship Ego+ electric motorcycle by improving the motor and inverter, making it 22 pounds lighter for 2022. In addition, the company lengthened the maintenance intervals and bumped the battery pack’s gross capacity to 21.5 kWh. As a result, the 169-hp Energica Ego+ has a claimed 261-mile city range and goes 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds.

4Lightning Strike

Lightning Strike

241 km/h - 150 mph

In 2019, California-based Lightning Motorcycles introduced the Strike, a more affordable model with a 120-hp liquid-cooled electric motor and 20 kWh battery. It's capable of reaching a claimed 150 mph, making it the #4 fastest street-legal electric motorcycle.

Lightning Motorcycles also claims that its bike provides a very smooth and comfortable ride while you are powered forward by its 120-hp motor. So if you're looking for an affordable recreational bike to relieve stress, the Lightning Strike might be your best bet.

In addition, the bike's impressive urban range of over 300 miles on a charge or 200 miles on highway driving means it should quell any range anxiety you have about electric bikes.

2Lightning LS-218

Lightning LS-218

351 km/h - 218 mph

The Lightning LS-218, also a superbike designed for speed, is one of the fastest motorcycles in the world. It can reach a staggering 218 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.2 seconds. It held the title of the world's fastest street-legal production electric motorcycle from 2014 to 2020—until 2021, a new model Voxan Wattman dethroned it.

1Voxan Wattman

Voxan Wattman

456 km/h - 283 mph

The Voxan Wattman was designed for speed and has achieved that goal, as it's now the fastest fully electric motorbike in the world. The superbike can reach a top speed of 283 mph—much faster than the second-place competitor Lightning LS-218.

In October 2020, the Voxan Wattman (a new high-performance version), ridden by Max Biaggi, reached a top speed of 456 km/h (283 mph), making it the fastest electric motorcycle ever. In addition, the Voxan Wattman electric motorcycle has established 21 new world speed records, including the one-mile flying start record in the "partially streamlined electric motorcycle under 300 kg" class with a speed of 455.737 km/h and a maximum instantaneous speed of over 470 km/h.
