Lightning LS-218 ????

Post  mtbeerwah on Thu 20 Apr 2017, 11:05 am

Anybody heard of this thing???

A mate showed me a youtube review on this..and I got to say, I think it`s a bit scary.

It`s not the 200hp that would be scary..it`s the 168 FT-LBS (227NM) of torque, that I`m trying to come to terms with.

Wow , pretty impressive ,they have come along way in development, the only drawback ( for a road version ) still seems to be the range .I would imagine even the 100 miles would come down considerably if you're getting stuck into it .

You've put the acid on me Paul now that I don't have any lead in my pencil.
