Damon recently unveiled its new all-electric streetfighter motorcycle, which it had long warned us about. Canadian start-up’s new creation is called HyperFighter and is based on the HyperSport model which was unveiled in 2020 and features impressive features.
HyperFighter is a sharp streetfighter that will be released in three versions: the Unlimited 15, the Unlimited 20 and the top Colossus.
In all three cases we find monocoque chassis and the powerful HyperDrive drive unit with the performance of course differing. In the standard Unlimited 15 version the power is at 150 hp, while in both the Unlimited 20 and the top Colossus it is 200 hp.
The Colossus, which will be produced in just 100 copies, comes with Ohlins suspensions, one-way scissors, Brembo brakes and special wheels. The torque according to the manufacturer is at 200 Nm and the performance explosive: final that exceeds 270 km/h and 0-100 km/h in less than three seconds.
In terms of range, according to Damon, it is at 235 km thanks to the 20 kWh battery. Charging up to 80% on a fast charger takes just 45 minutes, while in a domestic outlet it will take 9 hours to charge up to 90%.
And all this is accompanied by a state-of-the-art electronics suite that aims at optimal driver safety and which includes, among other things, the Co-Pilot system that combines radars and 360-degree cameras. The system is supported by a 5G network and artificial intelligence…
HyperFighter prices start in the U.S. from $19,000 for the Unlimited 15 version, go up to $25,000 for the Unlimited 20 and go up to $35,000 for the limited-production Colossus.
Soon Damon Motorcycles’ products will also come to Europe with Dino Mariutti taking over as head of the brand’s European operations.
“The European market is a huge opportunity for Damon and we aim to be at the forefront of electrification, technology and safety,” said the company’s co-founder and CEO, Jay Giraud speaking to Businesswire, adding: “We expect to see more demand in Europe for Damon’s motorcycles compared to the orders we have in North America. With the European market in a rapid transition to electrification, we are confident that this large continent will be a dominant market for Damon.“
