On June 11th, Greg Winfree, the Assistant Secretary of the Department of Transportation (DOT), and his team visited Lightning. The objective of the meeting was to begin discussing how the DOT and Lightning could work together to accelerate the mass adoption of electric motorcycles as daily transportation. Lightning presented our electric motorcycle solutions and shared our vision for electric two wheel transportation.
We are looking forward to working with the Department of Transportation and explore ways to contribute to the effort to increase usage of electric transportation. Mr Winfree, a lifelong avid motorcyclist himself, has ridden his personal bikes across the continental United States. During the visit, Mr. Winfree took a test ride on the Lightning superbike during his visit and suggested that our LS-218 might be a great anniversary present from his wife.
