Voxan, owned by Venturi Automobiles, has introduced a new motorcycle architecture radically looking to the future with an aluminum "exoskeleton" chassis housing integrating all the components of the powertrain. It is accompanied to the rear by a new type of parallelogram-shaped four-link suspension (two dual oscillating arms) that creates an extension of the battery pack towards the rear axle. This horizontality gives the bike stability and elegance. Wattman is engineered in Monaco and made in France.

Powered by the first Voxan electric motor with permanent magnets and liquid cooling, Wattman delivers 200 HP with 200 Nm of instant torque up to 10,500 rpm. It is positioned as the most powerful electric motorcycle ever built, and claims a much higher level of performance in many respects than the best combustion motorcycles. The power is transmitted to ground by a 240mm wide tire, reaching 0-100 KPH in 3.4 seconds and 0-160 KPH in 5.9 seconds. According to Voxan, the Wattman offers new sensations and driving pleasure in its purest form, equally capable of lightning acceleration and flexibility, thanks to its belt drive electric motor.

The Wattman features a charging time to 80% of full charge in less than 30 minutes thanks to a “COMBO II” socket, the European quick charge standard. This is less time than it takes to recharge a mobile phone. It can also be plugged to a standard household socket, anywhere thanks to its integrated charger. Its ultra-compact 12.8kWh battery ensures 180 km of range.

Body specifications include the following: the frame 8includes structural battery packaging and self-supporting motor casing; the front suspension is a 43 mm inverted fork; the rear suspension includes dual swingarms and dual shock absorbers; the rims are carbon 18” diameter; the tires are Michelin Commander II, 130/70/18 in the front and 240/40/18 in the rear; the front brakes are 4 discs (230mm diameter) – 4 piston calipers (Beringer 4D System); and the rear brakes are Disc (230mm diameter) – 2 piston caliper (Beringer).
