e Solex World Record
It's incredible if you think about it. Last year, during Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats Open link in a new window, where cars and motorcycles often reach speeds of 200 mph, trying to break some speed record, one vehicle managed to obtain a record, but at a very low speed...

The vehicle was the e-Solex Open link in a new window, an electric SolexBrigitte Bardot on a Solex (a moped), and with the 4 French motorcycle lovers (Gilles Pujol, Franck Figuls, Yann Bruneau and Jean Caillou), the electric Solex managed the world record of 32 kph (19.893 mph).

The reason this is certified as a world record? Because it's the first mass-produced, unmodified, electric motorcycle to try for the record. Before that, the record stood at 0 mph. So now they are in the record books.

I'll bet you that this record will not stand for long.
