DAMON HYPERSPORT- Better, Safer, Smarter

The Damon Hypersport comes with the tagline ‘Better, Safer and Smarter‘, and it’s hard not to believe them.

Better

The Damon Hypersport comes with a 200hp electric motor that can do 0-60mph in under 3 seconds with a top speed of over 200 miles per hour. While these numbers are impressive, they are not the reason why we see it as a massive upgrade over conventional superbikes.

Traditionally, motorcycles have always had a single body type. Any changes to the ride dynamics have been limited to the few ride modes that these motorcycles come as default. However, the Hypersport completely blows this out of the water by providing what they call a ‘Shift’ system. What this does is change the geometry of the bike to suit the specificities of the drive. The handlebars, windscreen, seat, and footpegs can all move between four adjustable points, essentially making this sportbike turn into a sport-tourer or even an upright commuter with the push of a button.

Safer

When on roads, Damon claims that the Hypersport will be the ‘safest’ motorcycle to ride. This is achieved thanks to an 360º Advanced Warning System called CoPilot. The system employs a series of sensors including radar and cameras to constantly monitor its vicinity. The oncoming threats are conveyed to the rider by means of haptic feedback on the handlebar and through integrated LED lights on the windscreen.

Smarter

Keeping the bike safe is an advanced AI system that constantly monitors the bike’s internal condition and external environment to provide the best possible solutions.
