Podcast 163: Lightning Motorcycle’s Founder & CEO Richard Hatfield

The future is here, the future is now. I know we keep saying this with every electric motorcycle we talk about, but we saved the best for last. This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Richard Hatfield, founder and CEO of Lightning Motors. The Lightning LS-218 is an electric superbike that has set records at Bonneville Salt Flats and Pikes Peak. This bike is making amazing numbers in speed, horsepower and torque. We talk with Richard about the awesome bikes he had growing up, and how he decided to build the worlds fastest production motorcycle. We are also joined by Loz Blain of New Atlas who test rode the bike and lived to tell the tale. Read the article and watch the video. It’s worth it.
With Liza, Zach, Nak, Kat, Isaac, Electric Terry, Emma, Richard, Loz, Douglas, Charley, Micah, Michael and the peanut gallery.
