On the runway used by the Shuttles at Kennedy Space Center, Florida, Max Biaggi broke 21 speed records for electric motorcycles on the Voxan Wattman. HERE you can find the list of all the firsts, while above the video of his record-breaking feat.
The Corsaro sped along the straight at more than 455 km/h, also hitting a peak of 470. All accompanied by the hiss of the electric motor, the same used by Mercedes in Formula E.
