Watch the record run at 241.901 mph that made KillaJoule the world’s fastest electric motorcycle and the world’s fastest sidecar motorcycle of any kind (including internal combustion). It is the first time in over 100 years that an electric vehicle has taken an overall speed record for a vehicle type (the last time was in 1899 when the world’s fastest car was electric).
