RECORDS & AWARDS

I-just-set-a-new-world-record-selfie.

This is how happy I was after a 251.255 mph (404 km/h) run at the Bonneville Salt Flats with pure battery power at Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials on August 30, 2016. The final world record became 248.721 mph (400.278 km/h). That made it the world’s fastest electric motorcycle, the world’s fastest sidecar motorcycle, and the fastest world record for a female motorcycle rider. Since then, someone else has beaten my records for fastest sidecar and fastest female, but I am still holding the record for fastest electric motorcycle. I am determined to take back the other two records; that’s why Green Envy is being built!

Current land speed records

KillaJoule is the world’s fastest electric motorcycle with an official speed record of 248.721 mph (400.278 km/h) in the flying kilometer (FIM record August 2016) and a registered top speed of 270.224 mph (434.9 km/h).

The 248.721 mph record beats all the previous national and international speed records for electric motorcycles. This record is also still the fastest FIM world speed record ever for a female motorcycle rider (although Valerie Thompson holds a national Australian record that exceeds Eva’s record).

Eva holds 14 official national and international speed records with the KillaJoule, and one Guinness World Record.
