Lightning LS218 – the world’s fastest superbike is electric

Lightning’s LS218 is a true electric superbike. It’s clean, it’s green – and it filled Loz’s trousers with steaming lumps of adrenaline. We’ve tested a number of 200-horsepower superbikes, but nothing – NOTHING – accelerates like this thing. It’s excess for the sake of excess, like all the best motorcycles are – and it’s beautiful, and Loz very nearly broke it.
