New World and US Landspeed record for electric motorcycle 150kg class
What is even more exciting is that I will be setting these records on a production electric motorcycle, a 2012 Zero S ZF6, which anyone can buy. The bike is slightly modified with a single bar end mirror and a tail chop by Hollywood Electrics. On my first few runs, I plan to set the record using the bikes default settings, straight from the factory. After I have proven the bikes factory settings, I will modify the controller software settings and possibly make some small hardware modifications to see how much power and speed I can really get out of the bike.
From the factory the Zero S should do 88mph on a flat asphalt surface, and with my modifications I have had the bike to 100mph. The salt may slow my speeds down, however, I will do my best to compensate for that slowness by finding and utilizing more untapped power in the bike, hardware or software.
Thank you for your support, and I will be sure to thank each and every one of you personally to express my deepest gratitude for your help in supporting me to make history.
Pending ratification it looks like I set world records for 150kg electric motorcycle class for the kilo and mile at just over 100 and just over 99 respectively as well as the national record for modified electric motorcycle at just over 99mph.
I will be heading home tomorrow morning after I do one more run to try and break the 100 mph mark across the board.
Wish me luck!
