Meet the Hyperfighter, a New Electric Naked Bike With 200 HP and a 146-Mile Range

Damon’s newest electric streetfighter aims to deliver a one-two punch.

The aptly named HyperFighter, which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Tuesday, builds upon the Canadian outfit’s popular first model, the HyperSport, and was designed for a new generation of more eco-conscious bikers.
With a muscular silhouette, the stripped-down two-wheeler appears to pack all the attitude of a classic naked bike—judging by the sole picture Damon provided, at least. Like its predecessor, the emissions-free Hyperfighter is built around Damon’s HyperDrive technology and features an electric powertrain, which also received a CES 2022 Innovation award.

The model that was presented at the gadget-packed technology trade show is the range-topping Hypefighter Colossus. Priced at $35,000, it features a premium bodykit and wheels, along with a 20 kWh battery that promises 200 hp and 148 ft lbs of torque. This reportedly gives the Colossus the ability to zoom from zero to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 170 mph. It can also cover 146 miles on a single charge, according to the bike builder.
“Forget what you know about traditional streetfighters,” Damon’s co-founder and CEO Jay Giraud said in a statement. “Just as HyperSport has done to the sportbike segment, the HyperFighter stands to disrupt the streetfighter category with groundbreaking technology not found on any other bikes.”

Damon’s first e-bike, the Hypersport, was unveiled at CES last January.

Damon also has two other variants in the pipeline. The HyperFighter Unlimited 20 and HyperFighter Unlimited 15, which will set you back $25,000 and $19,000, respectively. The Unlimited 20 has the exact same battery and touted performance specs as the Colossus but is fitted with a standard body kit and wheels. The Unlimited 15, meanwhile, comes equipped with a 15 kWh battery that’s good for 150 horses. This gives the bike, which sports the standard body kit and wheels, the ability to reach 150 mph at full tilt and cover 120 miles per charge.
Each HyperFighter also comes with CoPilot, an advanced 360-degree warning system that uses radar, cameras and sensors to track moving objects and give you better situational awareness, as well as electronic ergonomics that allow you to position the handlebars and windscreen exactly to your liking. To top it off, the trio can also be customized with special body kits and graphics.

“We’ve built an incredible, technologically advanced motorcycle that will appeal to both long-time streetfighter enthusiasts and new riders,” Giraud added.
You can reserve your HyperFighter now with a fully refundable deposit (Colossus for $250 and HyperFighter Unlimited models for just $100) on Damon’s website.

BMW Motorrad’s Futuristic New Electric Bike Concept Has a Rack for Your Skateboard

BMW Motorrad’s Futuristic New Electric Bike Concept Has a Rack for Your Skateboard

The International Motor Show in Germany may not start until next week but that hasn’t stopped BMW Motorrad from unveiling its latest prototype. The futuristic the Concept CE 02 is a hybrid mini-bike aimed at younger riders looking for the next thing in urban mobility.

The automaker’s motorcycle division has tried to create something new with the Concept C 02, which is why you’d be forgiven for not knowing whether it’s a motorcycle or a scooter. It’s smaller and less powerful than the former but more capable and fun than the latter. The brand has tried to take the essential features of both genres, and cram them into a zippy new means for riding around the city emissions free.

Helping you reach your destination quickly is a belt-driven, electric motor that can generate 11 kW of power (or about 15 hp), according to a press release. Thanks to the little powerhouse you can get off to a quick start when the light turns green and hit a top speed of 56 mph. BMW hasn’t said revealed details about the size of the battery, but it’s strong enough to provide 56 miles of range. That should be more than enough to get your through the day in most cities.
The Concept CE 02’s hybrid setup isn’t the only aspect meant to appeal to younger riders (which, in BMW’s eyes, is anyone 16 and up). It’s also been specifically designed with them in mind. Look no further than the rack designed to hold your skateboard. The bike also features a minimalist, cyberpunk design, similar to that of the wild Definition Concept CE 04 scooter. There are two large disc wheels, a front fork, handlebars and a motor—that’s it. Because of this, the vehicle tips the scales at an ultra-light 264 pounds. Electric bikes are usually heavier than their gas-powered siblings because of their battery packs, but this bike weighs 100 pounds less than the lightweight GS 310 GS adventure motorcycle.

Traditionally, a bike like the Concept CE 02 would seem to have little chance of hitting the roads, but we’re not so sure about that anymore. After all, just two months ago BMW unveiled a production version of the sci-fi-inspired Destination CE 04. So, if you’re looking for the middle ground between a motorcycle and scooter, patience might be your best ally.
