blasted through the land speed record for production electric bikes by 30 mph to be crowned the first electric bike to exceed 200 mph. In a 14 August SCTA (Southern California Timing Association)-sanctioned run at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, Lightning—the 2010 land speed record holder—achieved 206.079 mph, topping its 2010 speed of 176 mph. Based on the success of the HVH250, a new powerful HVH410 is now available for heavy duty applications.
