White Motorcycle Concepts’ WMC250EV aims to break the electric land speed record for motorbikes, and the current one stands at 254mph. To help it become the fastest, it boasts an all-carbon-fiber body construction over a billet aluminum chassis, complete with a giant hole right in the middle for aerodynamic purposes.
Power comes from four Hacker synchronous electric motors (two up front and the other two in the rear) generating a total of 100 kW (135 hp), drawing juice from a 15kWh battery pack. The goal is to develop a 250-kW (335-hp) powertrain before attempting the land speed record. Suspension wise, there’s Multimatic’s DSSV damper technology, the same one featured in high-performance road cars.
- The model includes a 2-speed gearbox, a first for LEGO Technic motorcycle models, and front and rear suspension for realistic movement
- Features great attention to detail, with attributes from the original, like realistic turning front wheel and front and back disc brakes
- Discover how the gearbox activates the V4-cylinder engine and feel the smooth ride of different driving techniques with the 2-speed action
If you want to demonstrate to the rest of the world that you’ve just invented a new aerodynamic concept that means you can go faster for a given power, the best thing to do is go as fast you can. That’s why we created WMC250EV high-speed demonstrator, the most radical version of this concept, to challenge for the world land speed record. It is electric, as that is the pre-eminent zero emissions power source at the moment, but as the aerodynamic concept provides efficiency benefit, it could just as easily be hydrogen or any other future power source,” said Rob White, White Motorcycle Concepts founder and Chief Executive Officer.
