UK Airhole electric motorcycle aims to be the fastest in the world

The WMC250EV is a product developed by White Motorcycle Concepts (WMC) of the UK with the goal of being the fastest electric motorcycle in the world.

It will use a powertrain that demonstrates Related information can be found here.
