Thanks to great strides made by companies such as Tesla and GM, the future of transport is undeniably green and electric. One common misconception is that electric-powered vehicles can't match up to their gasoline buddies. The newly revealed Voxan Wattman electric motorcycle busts that myth.

Unveiled at the Paris Motorcycle Show, the Wattman has 200 horsepower with 147.5 pound-feet of torque, which earns it the title of world's most powerful electric motorcycle. Voxan claims the electric motorcycle can get a range of 111 miles on its electric battery, too.

Want speed? Of course you do. There's no such thing as slow motorcycle, is there? The aluminum and carbon fiber electric bike has a top speed of 105.6 miles per hour and can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds and to to 99.42 miles per hour in 5.9 seconds.

The Wattman is also quick in another department: charging time. The 12.8kWh lithium battery can charge up to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes using a standard "Combo II" European charger.

Pricing hasn't been revealed for the Wattman, but if we were to guess, we'd probably say the 771-pound motorcycle will cost somewhere between expensive and really expensive, considering each bike is hand-made in France.
