Key Features of the VECTRIX™ Super Bike:

  • Powerful and fast -- Rapidly accelerates to 125 mph (201 km/h). 1/4-mile (0.40 km) in as little as 12.0 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph.

  • All-electric with zero emissions -- no need for oil or gas, and virtually silent operation. Plugs into any 110V/220V standard outlet and charges battery to 80% capacity in 2.5 hours.

  • Range up to 124 miles (200 km) on a single charge @ 25mph, due to battery pack energy density and our unique regenerative braking technology [depending on speed, rider weight, and driving habits].

  • Patented VECTRIX™ Multi-Function Bidirectional Throttle provides an ergonomically friendly regenerative braking rider interface to maximize range possibilities and provides a slow-speed reverse for greater maneuverability and easy parking.

  • Low Maintenance -- with no oil, no filters, and no clutch your cost of ownership is minimal.

  • Low noise for reduced sound pollution.
