The events took place on the 30th, 31st of October and the 1st of November at Châteauroux airfield in France. In total, Biaggi and the team have scooped a total of eleven world speed records, posting an outright top speed of 254mph in the process!

After a day of setting up the bike, Biaggi managed to achieve the “partially streamlined electric motorcycle over 300 kilos” record with a speed of 228.05mph, beating the previous record by 24.05mph.

Speaking of the records, Biaggi said:

“When Gildo Pastor, the President of the Venturi Group, approached me about this project, I was curious, very motivated, and at the same time a little uncertain. Having said that, right after our first meeting, I quickly realised that, like Gildo, his teams were driven by an incredible belief and determination. They told me “we came close to 600 km/h (373 mph) on four wheels, and now we want to flirt with 400 km/h (249 mph) on two wheels, nothing’s going to stop us!” These records make me a happy man! I’m proud of the team and delighted to bring these titles back to Monaco!”

The power behind the records came from a fairly unusual source, in the form of the electric motors and control systems from the AMG Mercedes Formula E car’s powertrain.

technology is upgrading day by day, we can imagine flying motorcycles in the future as we see in the movie named 2050. I am not sure if these types of vehicles produce carbon dioxide or not. I don't have too much interest in bikes but my younger brother very crazy about superbikes, and he has one of them, I am Helen, an academic writer at
