Lightning is located in 2360 Technology Parkway, Hollister, CA 95023. Lightning’s mission is to build world-class, two-wheel electric transportation with superior efficiency, performance and affordability to current gasoline alternatives. The first challenge was to develop technology that is equal or better than gasoline powered motorcycles. Lightning seeks opportunities to compete to develop and prove our technology and has established it’s dominance by winning the first North American Electric motorcycle road racing championship in 2010. In 2011, Lightning set the land speed record at 215.960 mph(top speed of 218.637 mph) and became the world fastest production electric motorcycle.
Next Lightning integrated the race proven technologies into their customer products – the Lightning LS-218 in 2015 and the Lightning Strike in 2019 which were well received by the market. Lightning is a true technology company with 14 years of developing EV capabilities through competition on both the racetrack and in the product market.
