MotoCzysz E1pc Wins Zero Emissions Race at the 2010 Isle of Man TT

Rider Mark Millar on the MotoCzysz E1pc has won the  Zero Emissions Race at the 2010 Isle of Man TT.  A much improved result on last years failure to finish by the electric bike and a dazzling performance, and advance, in the general field of E-bikes.

While it is taking time to pull together all the working elements electric bikes are becoming more and more viable as an alternative to the gas guzzling machines we all love.  Handling and speed as demonstrated by the MotoCzysz E1pc during one of the most trying road races in the world seem to be on par with regular sports bikes now, and is testament to the skills of Millar being at one with his ride.  Range is still the crippling factor for E-bikes and that’s something that can only be solved by better battery technology, which is getting there, but not keeping pace with the rest of the motorcycle technology on show.

Below is a video of the Mark Millar’s press conference after his well deserved win and further below is a more in-depth look at the MotoCzysz E1pc as featured in an article earlier this week from Hell For Leather and Popular Science magazines.

This is the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc, a race bike built by a tiny Oregonian company focused on pushing the limits of electric performance to the absolute max. It packs 10 times the battery capacity of a Toyota Prius and 2.5 times the torque of a Ducati 1198 into a package that looks like something out of a 24th-century Thunderdome……..continued at Popular Science or at Hell For Leather
