Electric motorcycles now offer a practical alternative to their internal combustion counterparts thanks to quick charging models that boast up to 200 miles of urban range. But, a little-known British company wants to make future e-motorbikes much faster. To get there, White Motorcycle Concepts built a unique prototype that it claims can smash a land speed record.

A quick glance at the concept immediately tells you why it stands out: The bike features a hole that runs from the front to the back. This duct system, dubbed “V-Air,” makes it the most “aerodynamically efficient motorcycle in the world,” according
