Lightning Takes Land Speed Record

In a cryptic comment fromt the Lightning Facebook page, it seems Lightning has kicked the Land Speed Record for Production Motorcycles this past weekend.

You read that right.  Production Motorcycles.  Not Production Electric, bitches, but Production MOTORCYCLES.

They’ve been updating their page with some more details since then, along with a photo gallery.  Here’s the page.

Even cooler, they did it charging up with solar power, via SMA Inverted.  Read all about that here.

Here’s the charging array:

Team: SMA / Lightning Motorcycles. 

Pilot: Jim Hoogerhyde
El Mirage Dry Lake Bed, California.
Course: 1.3 miles. 
Speed: 189mph.

Awesome.
