Damon Hypersport Pro

The first batch of the innovative new Damon Hypersport Pro is reported to have been snapped up in just under four days, prompting the burgeoning company to invest in its production to make the most of its demand.

The Canadian start-up became a talk of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last year when it revealed its electric sportsbike, the Hypersport, which combines high-performance with zero emissions motoring, and throws in some genuinely intriguing innovations as well.

It certainly boasts some eye-catching stats with the equivalent of 200hp and a top speed of 200mph… all while maintaining a range of between 200 and 300 miles. It also features tech that provides 360-degree radar assistance to give riders a full view of their surroundings as they ride, plus a full range of ergonomic adjustment depending on where you are riding.

It doesn’t hurt the sharp design is easy on the eye too.

While it’s not exactly cheap with the flagship Pro coming in at $39,995, prospective buyers have been impressed enough to be placing orders with all models being purchased within four days of pre-sale. While this only equates to 25 models at present, the quick uptake has convinced Damon that the Hypersport Pro deserves to get a mainstream production.

In an interview with Proactive, CEO Jay Giraud says the pre-sold bikes will be shipped to customers in a year and a half, with the Vancouver facility capable of producing up to 1,500 motorcycles per year. It already has plans to double its workforce from 50 to 100 employees.
