South African company BST has created this spectacular futuristic electric motorcycle named HyperTEK. Power comes from a DHX Hawk electric motor, which is good for 80 kW and a monstrous 120 Nm of instantaneous torque. The electronics allow clutch slip and wheelies and you also get cruise control and a hill-hold feature. There’s a 30-minute quick charge facility and the range is around 300 kilometers.
Needless to say, given what BST do best, the HyperTEK also features dollops of carbon fiber everywhere. This keeps weight down to 205 kilos (450 pounds), an unusually low figure for an electric bike. The monocoque frame is carbon fiber, and so are the fork tubes. The forks have an integrated structure, with the down tubes and triple clamps in one piece.
It’s an extremely ambitious project, but on the other hand, BST is a company with an extremely solid reputation. They plan to start production in around 18 months, and prospective owners will have to cough up $80,000 to park one of these unique rides in their garage. And meanwhile you can check the list of the fastets motorcycles in the world.
