A NEW FRENCH REVOLUTION
VOXAN has today achieved a major revolution in French motorcycle history
with the presentation of an ultra-powerful and upscale machine,
radically innovative in its technology and its architecture: WATTMAN.
Symbolic of VOXAN's revival, the WATTMAN illustrates the new techniques
and stylistic direction of the brand, with avant-garde technologies in
the field of electric mobility and a design that anticipates the shape
of bikes to come.
AN ELECTRIC SHOCK OF 200 HP
With 200 HP and an instantaneous torque of 200Nm up to 10,500 rpm,
WATTMAN is now the world's most powerful electric motorcycle.
Synonymous with new sensations, WATTMAN offers driving pleasure in its
purest form, capable of both lightning acceleration (0-160km/h in 5.9
seconds) and flexibility, thanks to its belt drive electric motor.
VOXAN inaugurates a new motorcycle architecture built around a
motor-battery pack carrier set. The frame is replaced by an ultra-rigid
exoskeleton, integrating all the components of the powertrain. This
results in a very pure motorcycle without a visible technical feature.
To Sacha LAKIC, its designer: "this aluminium exoskeleton which
contains the battery is the motorcycle's signature. You can tell from
this design that it is an electric machine."
RECHARGED IN LESS THAN 30 MN
WATTMAN features an exceptional charging time of 80% in less than 30
minutes thanks to a "COMBO II" socket, the European quick charge
standard. It can also be plugged to a standard household socket, thanks
to its integrated charger.
Its ultra-compact 12.8kWh battery ensures 180 km of range.
Primarily intended for an exclusive international clientele seeking
innovation, WATTMAN will be produced unit-by-unit, upon order, and
hand-assembled in France, at the Solesmes (Sarthe) Electric Vehicle
