The Hyper Fighter Colossus from Damon Motors, a Canadian startup, flies from zero to 100 kilometres per hour in just three seconds, with no emissions to worry about.
Electric power is quickly establishing itself in the world of speed, and anyone who has any doubts about the propulsion capabilities of a battery versus a conventional engine has plenty of examples to back up their claims. One such bike is Damon Motors’ 2022 Hyper Fighter Colossus electric sports bike, which has piqued the interest of many at the ongoing CES 2022 in Las Vegas.
The HyperFighter Colossus not only appears to be built for speed, but it also has the ability to outrun competitors in a race. The electric sports bike, with a top speed of 273 kmph, is clearly aiming to be a preferred option for those seeking an adrenaline rush without the guilt of emissions.
A 20 kWh battery powers the ultra capable electric sports bike, allowing it to travel 235 kilometres before needing to be recharged. There are 200 horsepower available, and a sprint to 100 kilometres per hour takes only three seconds.
With great speed comes the need for responsible riding, so the HyperFighter Colossus is outfitted with a slew of radars, sensors, and cameras to provide a 360-degree advanced risk warning system. “HyperFighter pays homage to yesterday’s streetfighters while looking to the future with Damon’s legendary safety and performance,” says the press release “Electrek quoted CTO Derek Dorresteyn as saying. “We’ve created an incredible, technologically advanced motorcycle that will appeal to both experienced streetfighter riders and newcomers alike.
All of this, of course, comes at a hefty price tag. The HyperFighter Colossus has a sticker price of $35,000, and pre-orders for customers in the United States are now open. However, there is some good news for those who aren’t quite ready to spend a lot of money on this model. Damon Motors also has two more HyperFighter models in the works. These models are likely to be less capable and have fewer body kits than the Colossus. However, the overall goal is to prioritise performance and safety.
