The KillaJoule has been frequently covered in media since its debut at the salt flats in 2010. If you have an article that isn’t posted here, I’d love to get a copy so I can include it.
Nice write-up in Rider Magazine about the exhibition at Petersen Automotive Museum: https://ridermagazine.com/2022/04/11/petersen-automotive-museum-exhibit-to-feature-custom-electric-motorcycles/

“Eva – snabbast i världen!”, May 2018
Nice article by Peo Kjellström. They say you can’t become a prophet in your own hometown, but perhaps you actually can? After almost 10 years of racing, and 7 years of holding world records, Swedish media has discovered me. While I am a licensed private pilot both in the USA and in New Zealand, it is a bit of an exaggeration to say that I have my own airplane. I can rent one if I want to go somewhere, and Bill was building an airplane when we met, but we sold the half-built airplane and the engine to buy a race trailer.
“Batteries Included—KillaJoule, the World’s Fastest Electric Motorbike”, April 10, 2017
Very nice article by Roopinder Tara. He particularly enjoyed being squeezed into the KillaJoule and having the seat belts tightened until he couldn’t breath anymore. (The Eva and KillaJoule “dog-n-pony-show” includes sitting in the KillaJoule – if you are small enough… 😉 ) Read the full article HERE.
