- Richard Hatfield
CEO, Lightning Motorcycle

problem

The widespread adoption of electric motorcycles has long been hindered by a set of core concerns.

  • Performance is not on par with gas motorcycles
  • Price premium over gas motorcycle
  • Driving distance and range anxiety
  • Extended charging time
  • Limited choices

solution

Over the last 14+ years, Lightning has developed proprietary technologies that were proven in competition to build production bikes using agile design and manufacturing techniques.

Lightning’s technologies are designed to be capable of scaling to meet diverse segments of motorcycle categories from Superbikes, Adventure Bikes, to 250cc equivalents.

Lightning aims to change how motorcycle riders consume energy, all while elevating expectations.

Convenient. Desirable. Affordable.

Leveraging proprietary technologies, Lightning manufactures products aimed to attract consumers based on a superior user experience, accessible performance, and ease of operation for new and experienced riders.

  • Fast charging
  • Enhanced range
  • Some of the best-in-class power

FAST CHARGING

This industry leading feature not only allows for more time spent riding but along with best in class range per kw, addresses range anxiety concerns.

“I want to thank our partner Lightning for their expertise and agility in developing state-of-the-art hardware and software solutions which enabled us to deliver this high-end, ultra-fast charging motorcycle. For the consumer, this means that riders of electric motorcycles with Enevate Technology can now ride all day alongside conventional motorcycles without being left waiting hours at the charger.”
- Robert A. Rango
Enevate CEO

ENHANCED RANGE

  • Utilizing leading edge high energy battery technology, plus Lightning’s proprietary Battery Management System (BMS) and some of the best in class aero design, we aim to achieve industry leading range.
  • Combined with short charge times and some of the best in class range, Lightning e-motorcycles are designed to provide a riding time experience superior to that of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) motorcycles of similar size and class.
  • Freedom to travel is more time for fun.

SOME OF THE BEST-IN-CLASS POWER

  • Proven top speed of 218 mph with 200+ HP (land speed record)
  • This performance leadership technology is applied to all of Lightning’s product offerings
  • In addition, proprietary thermal management system results in further gain in overall battery and system efficiencies
"What really blows my mind is that the LS-218 has the performance to exceed 218 mph at Bonneville, yet at the same time it is an economical bike and enjoyable bike to ride on your daily commute?"
- Paul Thede
CEO at Race Tech, Bonneville record holder

LIGHTWEIGHT

“Weight is the enemy of motorcycles” is the mantra of Lightning engineers. Lightning designs light weight throughout the entire bike system, from lightweight battery pack structure, lightweight chassis, lightweight components, and carbon fiber fairings. With Lightning’s lightweight technology and solution, our customers enjoy better handling, more range, and more acceleration.

LOWER THE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

The headaches of motorcycle ownership, such as keeping up with maintenance, can take the joy out of the ride. Lightning offers a simple, stress-free solution that can change the way you think about motorcycle ownership.

There are 15 tasks you may be able to forever check off your to-do list!

market

600 million motorized two wheelers in the world today and growing*
These are mostly gasoline powered, and have an average life expectancy of 10 years.

Global electric motorcycles industry exceeded 10 million unit annual sales in 2021, an 81% increase over the pre-pandemic 2019.

*Riders Share
Electric adoption worldwide
Most countries in the world have a government policy to electrify transportation. Two-wheelers are already driving the EV transition. The inherent efficiency and affordability of small, two-wheeled EVs mean they could play a vital role in speeding it along.

The growth of Electric Cars paves the way:
- Improving battery technology may increase range and reduce cost.
- Charging infrastructure is becoming ubiquitous. As of November 2022, there are just over 2.3 million charging stations worldwide. The number is expected to surpass 16.83 million by the end of 2028.
- In the USA, there are 49,992 public charging stations installed nationwide.

Increasing strong public awareness and support of environmental issues increases EV adoption.

Who could rule this $100B market?

No obvious leader today… Why not Lightning?

"Keeping up with the best Kawasaki has to offer is a monumental step forward for electric motorcycles…What the electric motorcycle industry needs is more emotion. It needs things that leave you at loss for words."
Zack Court

    Richard Hatfield, CEO of Lightning Motorcycle,...

    Richard Hatfield, CEO of Lightning Motorcycle, is featured in a recent Podcast. Here is a sneak peek:

    “Lightning’s solutions use DC-DC converters that have high power density, high efficiency, and a small footprint”, said Hatfield. Lightning designed their drive system to reduce weight while not compromising strength, reliability, or thermal management. Additionally Lightning conducted extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling to optimize range and efficiency. “….[Above] is one of the reasons why we are achieving high-speed records. Everything we learn about making a motorcycle more efficient means we can use a smaller battery pack and a more affordable drive system providing the same performance and longer range”, said Hatfield.

    Hatfield then concluded this interview: “I see a time in the future where petrol motorcycles will be collected as great historical pieces, whereas the typical motorcycles will be electric. I don’t think that the future is that far away”.

    Additional to our technologies, we have a highly experienced and talented core team. For example, our head of SW was an early Apple employee who led the creation of iCloud. Our team is dedicated and committed to delivering value to Lightning’s customers and our investors.

    The capital we are raising will help us to make affordable products without compromising performance. To do this, we will need capital to invest in tooling (forging/casting/injection modeling) to reduce BOM cost and increase assembly speed to fill more demand.

    This investment will help us grow, stay focused, and ultimately be able to meet hundreds and maybe tens thousands of demands. We believe we’re in the middle of a huge transition where a large number of 2-wheelers will be electric in the not to distance future.

    What Sets Lightning Apart? Second, Lightning Keep Evolving the Technology.

    When Lightning was founded, we believed that electric motorcycles had to provide performance that equaled or exceeded what the best ICE motorcycles provided to convince riders to go electric. However, back then lithium batteries and electric drive systems were still in their infancy so Lightning had to develop the technology to meet the challenge of providing a better rider experience.

    Lightning’s innovative and passionate engineering team addressed these challenges by making our bikes lighter, more agile, more powerful, and developed software to optimize the rider experience. Innovation is a commitment, and it is an on-going and continuous effort in Lightning.

    As the world adapts to accept more electric vehicles, there’s no better time to invest in this booming industry. The time is now to invest in Electric Vehicles, like Lightning Motorcycles.

    What sets Lightning apart? First Lightning has a different strategy and goals.

    According to Richard Hatfield, CEO of Lightning, “Achieving high performance with best riding experience goal required dedicating a lot of time to develop technology to create that experience. If you look at range, for example, it was a challenge initially to build a bike that could deliver 100 miles at 70 miles an hour. Our top bikes now will go over 170 miles at 70 miles an hour and recharge to 80 percent in 10 minutes. We credit it to our legacy of setting world records and winning racing championships, and the fact that we do our engineering in-house which allows agile integration of the best new technology from our ecosystem of cutting-edge battery companies, aerodynamics and power electronics resources.”

     In-house know-how and Lightning modular technology platform are the foundation of Lightning product.

    In the recent motorcycle article by Auto Influence, it described Lightning strategy is different from others, “Lightning took a different path and focused on demonstrating the performance of its machines, with the LS-218 taking first place in the 2013 Pikes Peak hill climb against gasoline motorcycles before becoming available for purchase in 2014.” Lightning has built in-house capabilities and vertically integrated modular system as the platforms to build our products. In the long run, we believe that is a better strategy over sourcing based strategy.

    Here is why you should invest in Lightning:

    1. Significant progress made: making 2 product lines in the USA and 3 new products in pipeline.
    2. Large and growing market : There are 8M motorcycles registered in USA and about 600M in the world.
    3. Highly experienced leadership – leaders and advisors with combined 100+ years of experience in building and growing technology companies
