"World's fastest electric motorcycle" uses radical big hole technology
By Loz Blain  June 24, 2021


There's no motorcycle on the planet like this one. British company
White Motorcycle Concepts (WMC) has put land speed record holders on
notice with a 2WD, hydraulically hub-steered electric motorcycle,
designed around a giant hole. The company says the WMC250EV should be
capable of more than 250 mph (402 km/h) thanks to a massive 69 percent
reduction in drag.
White's plan is to prove the technology with an electric land speed
record, and then roll it out into the electric streetbike market. To
that end, he's patented the "V-Air" big-hole technology
internationally, and hopes he can bring something similar – albeit
nowhere near as extreme or personally tailored – to the street.

The idea is that the innovative venturi hole produces extreme
reduction in air resistance and, in turn, for street use this should
produce longer range, or smaller batteries, or increased speed, or a
combination of these benefits,
