The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas saw the world premiere of the new Damon HyperFighter Colossus. A electric supernaked derived from the HyperSport sports version with impressive performance and very high quality components.
However, along with the presentation of this really interesting motorcycle, the Canadian company has another surprise in store. In fact, the Unlimited versions were also presented, two supernaked models that will complete the range and are designed to be produced in series and with different powers.
Aesthetically, both the Colossus and Unlimited are based on the same design as their sportier sister, the Demon Hypersport. The first it has a grille with latest generation LED headlights and a yellow fairing with tribal-style graphics, while in the other two versions the colors gray for version 15) and black (for Unlimited 20) are used as the only basis for “coloring” the bike

Mechanically all three models use the HyperDrive electric motor but with different powers. Both the Both the Colossus and the Unlimited 20 are capable of generating 200PS of power and 200Nm of torque , achieving “thermal engine” performance such as sprinting from 0 to 100 km / h in three seconds or reaching a top speed of 273 km / h. The Unlimited 15, for its part, has 150 HP of power and 200 Nm of torque, with which it reaches 100 km / h from a standstill in 3 seconds while the maximum speed “drops” to 241 km / h.

Autonomy also varies depending on the model chosen. Therefore, the Colossus and the Unlimited 20 will be able to travel up to 235 kilometers on the combined motorway / city cycle when the batteries are fully charged while the Unlimited 15 stops after 193 kilometers. For an 80% charge, the three models will take 45 minutes with a quick charger. It goes without saying that without the latter for a recharge it could take up to 15 hours.
Damon HyperFighter Colossus, also better in the chassis
But the differences don’t stop there. In the cycling part, the Colossus has better materials, both for the suspensions and for the brake group, which are signed by Öhlins and Brembo respectively. It also makes use of a single-sided rear swingarm while in the Unlimited versions a double swingarm is applied.
What the three share are the wheelbase, the height of the saddle from the ground and the tires. The latter are mounted on rims from 17 inches and the measures are 120/70/17 for the front ones and 200/55/17 for the rear ones. As for the wheelbase, it remains at 1,448 mm, while the saddle height from the ground is 813 mm.
Electronic devices are shared across all three models. The first of this is the CoPilot, an integrated security system that uses sensors and two 360º cameras with 1080P resolution , capable of alerting the driver visually (through an image on the center console), acoustically and via vibrations, of a possible risk of impact.
There will also be Shift technology, a gadget that allows you to change the settings of the handlebar, screen and footpegs via an electronic device to make driving more suited to your style . To all this we must add the traction control, the different driving modes, the handbrake or wireless connectivity with which it is possible to receive software updates via OTA, and a mobile application to observe the routes made with the motorcycles.
The company has already announced that the Damon HyperFighter Colossus will be sold at a price of 35,000 US dollars, (approximately 31,000 euros at current exchange rates), with a production limited to 100 units.
Unlimited 20 and Unlimited 15 versions they will be able to count on a massive production and their selling price to the public will amount respectively to 25,000 and 19,000 dollars (approximately 18,500 and 14,000 euros). For all those interested, orders are already open on the company website.
