Lightning’s LS218 is a true electric superbike. It’s clean, it’s green – and it filled Loz’s trousers with steaming lumps of adrenaline.

It’s excess for the sake of excess, like all the best motorcycles are – and it’s beautiful, and Loz very nearly broke it.

Huge thanks to Richard and Jojo Hatfield, and the Lightning Motorcycles team for their patience and assistance. Thanks to Nick Lavars for his accessory kit demonstration and Isaac Rowntree for his very specific trombone skills.
