The Arc Vector electric motorcycle, capable of hitting a top speed of over 200 kmph, has made its first public appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed alongside other super bikes and performance motorcycles. Arc founder and CEO Mark Truman will be the person who will ride the Vector on the famed hill climb. The Arc Vector has a top speed of over 200 kmph. Goodwood is the ideal place for us to show the Vector to the people for the first time. We've been testing behind the scenes and now the bike is emerging from the shadows. It is the most amazing thing both to ride and behold. Up to 1,50,000 are expected at the Festival of Speed, and I hope they all get a chance to see what we've been working on a unique, all-electric neo cafe racer with all sorts of kit never before seen. Said Mark Truman.
The final production model Vector will be powered by a 399V electric motor that churns out close to 140 bhp and 85 nm of peak torque. It will be a limited edition model and only 355 units will be made for sale.
