Ten electric motorbikes to look forward to in 2022

Ten electric motorbikes to look forward to in 2022

Damon HyperSport

This Canadian brand may not have the coolest moniker (unless you’re a real fan of the 1996 Formula 1 World champion…), but we’re not sure anyone will care when it finally starts selling the 200hp, 200mph HyperSport Premier. Sure, it’ll set you back around £30,000, but Damon promises it’ll also make a more upright naked version, as well as models with less power such as the $17,000 HyperSport SE. We wonder if the shiny gloss-finished models will be followed by a matt Damon?

And if you think that’s impressive (the HyperSport, not our Damon puns), check out the forthcoming Damon HyperFighter

Energica Eva Ribelle

Italian supernaked bikes are usually powered by thirsty V4 engines, offer neighbourhood-deafening soundtracks and carry Ducati or Aprilia badges, but Energica is aiming to show how electric power can also give you 170hp thrills. The Eva Ribelle certainly looks the part, and comes with Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes. Notably, it also features DC fast charging and a battery that’s good for at least 123 miles.
