Ben Felten is the world’s fastest blind man on a motorcycle!

In March 2018, Ben established a new world motorcycle land speed record of 266.716 kph (165.730 mph) on his Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R. Watch the record here.

Former MotoGP racer Kevin Magee guided Ben down the track using an analogue radio. Magee and Paul Simpson, radio communications technician supported Ben to achieve his life long dream.

The Blind Speed Kawasaki team will compete at Speed Week 2020 and also challenge the record at the FIM World Speed Trials Australia event held on a salt lake in outback South Australia.
