Hmmm, the Utraviolette seems affordable relatively speaking

Ultraviolette F99 is the electric superbike youíve never heard of, but desperately need in your life

Itís ok, we forgive you for perhaps not knowing of Indian electric motorcycle maker Ultraviolette. After all, it currently only has one machine in the early stages of production, the F77, which is currently only available in its home country of India.

However, the brand has big ambitions to conquer Europe, where the F77 will arrive next year, as well as North American and Asian markets. And, to signal its intent, it took a stand at this yearís EICMA motorcycle show - Milanís annual festival of two-wheeled exotica that took place earlier this month.

On that very stand sat the F99, which takes Ultraviolette's electric motorcycle learnings and turns the dial up to 11. Topline figures look like this: a 265km/h (165mph) top speed, 90kW (120hp) total power output, 178kg overall weight, and a 0-62mph dash in just 3 seconds.

Look at it. The aviation-inspired aerodynamics have been pinched from fighter jets and employed to ensure the F99 remains glued to a race circuit, but also make it look about as menacing as high-performance machines get.
