About the “KillaJoule” electric motorcycle

About the KillaJoule

You will see a lot about KillaJoule on this website, so I should give it a proper introduction. KillaJoule is the world’s fastest electric motorcycle with a top speed of 270 mph (434 km/h) so far. It is built by me with the help of my husband, great industry partners, and whole bunch of other people. While it is definitely a team effort, about 80 % of the blood, sweat, tears, and hours in the KillaJoule are mine. The only purpose of this 19 ft. (5.6 meter), 400 horsepower, sleek motorcycle is to show that eco-friendly can be fast and sexy.
