10 Fastest Street Legal Motorcycles

Lightning LS-218

2 – Lightning LS-218

An electric superbike, the Lightning LS-218 can go up to 218 mph. It gets its power from its IPM liquid cooled 150kw+10,500 rpm electric motor that has an output of 200-hp and 168 ft-lbs of torque. There is a slight catch, though; if you’re traveling at highway speed, the bike can only go about 100 miles on a single charge. That means if you take it up to 218 mph you need to have a charging station handy or you might end up stranded on the side of the road. It’s a little embarrassing to have to call a cab when you are sitting on one of the fastest bikes around so don’t let that happen to you.
