Max Biaggi's challenge of breaking the speed record for electric motorcycles, riding the powerful Voxan Wattman, has bee postponed to a later date.
It was supposed to take place in July on the salt flat of Uyuni in Bolivia. The "Corsair", who had already reached an "electric" record in the beginning of his career with Fabio Fazi's Violent Violet, would have driven the electric torpedo that the Monegasque group, Venturi, produces under the Voxan brand: a 200 horsepower vehicle with a 200 Nm torque.
"The development teams responsible for the Voxan Wattman motorcycle, which have just completed their initial tests on the track, are now confined to their homes. The health and safety of my teams is fundamental and, in light of the current health emergency, I have put necessary measures in place," Gildo Pastor, president of the Venturi Group, explained. "All my staff, whether connected to Venturi North America ( Columbus, Ohio) or the headquarters in Munich, now work from home. We'll establish a new schedule of operations as soon as the health emergency permits, and we'll announce the new operative provisions for this project, which is personally very important to me."
