Video: Mavizen TTX02 electric superbike - first ride preview

MCN is testing the world's first production electric superbike - the Mavizen TTX02. Watch the video for a little preview showing just how different this bike is to ride. The Mavizen TTX02 uses a complete KTM RC8 superbike rolling chassis, but is powered by two 96V DC Agni 95R electric motors instead of a petrol engine. There’s no clutch, gearbox, exhaust,...

Less talk . . .

How about a direct access URL?

Using flash to download video is really unfriendly for mobile browsing. How about offering a simple link as well for those of us who don't have a PC all the time?

Poor range

The bike looks ok but the range is still very poor, and the price tag is way over the top.

The 30,000 pound price tag will not ecourage people to buy one.

The best electric bike on the market at the moment considering the price as well is still by far the vectrix, without VAT just under 5 grand, with VAT a few quid over.

But you can buy second hand ones and let's hope they bring on line their super bike at a price we can afford.

But again the problem is range, avarage 40 miles is no much, and cold batteries in the winter may make them even less.

Speed is not the issue with electric bikes it's distance, go twenty or so miles and you start having to think about finding an electrical outlet to plug into.

At the very least if they came up with a device that you could recharge the bike rather than having to push the bike when it ran out of power they may get more sales.

It wouldn't need to fully recharge it but as a get you home ie reserve tank to the next power point.

Servicing...

As well as fuel costs I would expect this bike to be much cheaper on servicing - Electric motors and batteries need minimal mantennance compared to Petrol Engines and even the chain should have an easier time - although the bike has a large amount of torque there is no gear changing so ... Also the engine should last forever compared to a petrol engine - wonder what lifteime is expected for the batteries?

Interesting to see what happens if you leave the bike alone but on charge for a couple of months. (e.g. winter).. Petrol engines don't like being left like this much - the oil drains away from the cyclinders and petrol tanks rust etc. Batteries have different problems...
