Electric motorcycles around the world might not be at the same place as their ICE counterparts, but they are certainly grabbing attention. UK's White Motorcycle Concepts is working on such a product. Christened as WMC250EV, this electric motorcycle is being specifically designed to attempt land speed records.

The design of this electric motorcycle too is very intriguing. It gets a highly aerodynamic efficient V-Air design. The motorcycle has a large duct through the middle of the mainframe. This forces air through it.

The manufacturer claims, it will help with ultra-low drag. It is claimed to reduce the aerodynamic resistance by up to 70% compared to a conventional motorcycle.

The motorcycle is not being prepared for higher-speed runs before it finally appears for the British land speed record in early next year. It will also attempt a higher speed run at Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni salt flats next year.

After that, the company plans to start producing roadgoing versions of the e-motorcycle for mass buyers. The company claims, a roadgoing version of the electric bike will get a majority of the technologies available in the current model. More details are scheduled to be revealed in October this year.
