Lightning Motorcycles

Lightning Motors was founded in 2006 by Richard Hatfield who after 25 years building a financial company decided to combine his passion for motorcycles with his commitment to the environment. In 1995, Richard was invited to be the driver for an electric Porsche race team dedicated to winning a national electric vehicle road race championship. At that time, the battery technology didn’t provide enough energy density, but the electric Porsche provided a glimpse into the possibilities of electric vehicle technology and ignited Richard’s interest.  As a lifelong motorcyclist Richard believed that the lighter weight and aerodynamics of 2-wheel vehicles was better suited to the energy density of batteries. This was the beginning of Lightning Motors Corporation and Richard’s quest to achieve parity with internal combustion engine motorcycles.
