It seems that Ukraine-based Delfast Motors were not satisfied with just one record so they have gone ahead and made another one.
The record pertains to travel on an electric bike which seems to be the new and upcoming trend for people. This week, Delfast set a new speed record at Bonneville Speed Week with an electric motorcycle.
This Prime e-bike was introduced to the world in 2017. Just when it was inaugurated, it hit the Kiev Velodrome to set the Guinness World Record for the “greatest distance by electric bicycle, single charge” of 228.066 miles (367.037 km).
This famous electric bike that is being discussed everywhere now and has generated quite the hype for itself is a Delfast-Dnepr electric motorcycle. It was specifically designed and manufactured for the race at Bonneville Speed Week 2021. It set a record in the omega A category of the motorcycle speed record. In 2018, it reached the speed of 104.78 mph (168.62 km/h) at Bonneville.
Delfast now has exclusive ownership rights over Dnepr and has made a few changes in the model and its system. These changes include an updated controller, a synchro motor with a peak power of 100 kW (134 hp), a traction inverter that outputs at up to 1,000 Hz (for a motor speed of 5,500 rpm), and a 22,000 mAh battery bank. This battery bank allegedly provides a supply of an inverter voltage of about 800 volts.
In 2018, Champion racer Serhii Malyk had ridden the bike. This weekend, he was able to set a new record by achieving a speed of 107.2 mph (172.52 km/h). people are waiting for another record to be made in the Speed Week of 2022.
