The WMC250EV has a huge aerodynamic duct that runs centrally through its entire body, which is the main secret to its speed.
This technology is patented under the name of V-Air. Its creator name is Rob White. This talented engineer has devoted more than 25 years of his life to the motor racing industry. During this time, the specialist has developed an excellent understanding of aerodynamic power systems and has successfully applied this knowledge to motorbike construction.
The WMC250EV design allows to dramatically reduce the air resistance. The air literally flies through the “tunnel” around which the bike is built. The pilot's position does not prevent acceleration either. In other models, this factor strongly affects the speed, in this case, its impact is minimized. The WMC250EV’s drag coefficient is only 0,118. By comparison, the fastest serial sports car SSC Tuatara has 0,279.
The motorcycle does not have a front fork, and the mechanics in the control system is replaced in favour of hydraulics. Most of the vehicle components are located under the duct. A pair of 30kW electric motors and two 20kW motors accelerate the all-wheel-drive electric bike, which enables the vehicle to regenerative braking. Due to this factor, engineers rejected a large battery in favour of the 15 kW ⋅-hour model.
The WMC250EV is scheduled to be tested in the UK as early as the end of this year. Rob White believes that the device will be able to accelerate up to 400 km/h. If successful, it will break the world land speed record for motorbikes and electric vehicles. In the future, the V-Air technology may be used to create new models of urban transport.
