The Monaco-based builder took a partially-streamlined, 367 horsepower version of its Wattman bike to the Châteauroux Airfield in France on the weekend of Oct 31-Nov 1 and sent motorcycle racing great Max Biaggi down the runway on it.

Biaggi rode to a top peak speed of 254 mph while completing two runs in opposite directions over a flying mile that averaged out to 228 mph to set a new record, beating the previous mark of 204 英里每小时. He then did it again without the super-sleek bodywork to set an unstreamlined record of 217 英里每小时.

Along the way, Biaggi broke and established new records in various categories that included the standing-start quarter-mile and 1 kilometer, all certified by the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme).

Buoyed by the results, Voxan has now set the goal of hitting 249 英里每小时, which is a nice round 400 kilometers per hour.

The production Voxan is limited to 203 生命值.
