Meet The Hyperfighter — A New Electric Naked Bike
The range-topper can also cover 234km on a single charge.
Damon’s newest electric streetfighter aims to deliver a one-two punch.
The aptly named HyperFighter, which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Tuesday, builds upon the Canadian outfit’s popular first model, the HyperSport, and was designed for a new generation of more eco-conscious bikers.
With a muscular silhouette, the stripped-down two-wheeler appears to pack all the attitude of a classic naked bike—judging by the sole picture Damon provided, at least. Like its predecessor, the emissions-free Hyperfighter is built around Damon’s HyperDrive technology and features an electric powertrain, which also received a CES 2022 Innovation award.
The model that was presented at the gadget-packed technology trade show is the range-topping Hypefighter Colossus. Priced at around $48,000, it features a premium bodykit and wheels, along with a 20 kWh battery that promises 149kW and 200Nm of torque. This reportedly gives the Colossus the ability to zoom from zero to 100km/h in less than 3 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 270km/h. It can also cover 234km on a single charge, according to the bike builder.
“Forget what you know about traditional streetfighters,” Damon’s co-founder and CEO Jay Giraud said in a statement. “Just as HyperSport has done to the sportbike segment, the HyperFighter stands to disrupt the streetfighter category with groundbreaking technology not found on any other bikes.”
Damon also has two other variants in the pipeline. The HyperFighter Unlimited 20 and HyperFighter Unlimited 15, which will set you back approx. $34,600 and $26,300, respectively. The Unlimited 20 has the exact same battery and touted performance specs as the Colossus but is fitted with a standard body kit and wheels. The Unlimited 15, meanwhile, comes equipped with a 15 kWh battery that’s good for 111kW. This gives the bike, which sports the standard body kit and wheels, the ability to reach 240km/h at full tilt and cover 193km per charge.
Each HyperFighter also comes with CoPilot, an advanced 360-degree warning system that uses radar, cameras and sensors to track moving objects and give you better situational awareness, as well as electronic ergonomics that allow you to position the handlebars and windscreen exactly to your liking. To top it off, the trio can also be customized with special body kits and graphics.
“We’ve built an incredible, technologically advanced motorcycle that will appeal to both long-time streetfighter enthusiasts and new riders,” Giraud added.
You can reserve your HyperFighter now with a fully refundable deposit (Colossus for $250 and HyperFighter Unlimited models for just $100) on Damon’s website.
