MotoCzysz to launch electric superbike at TTXGP

Published: 08 April 2009

MotoCzysz, the would-be Bimota of USA (big on innovation, light on backing, inextinguishable ambition) is back with a bike it says will lead the 'dawn of the digital superbike'.

You can read full details and see a rendering of what the finished bike will look like in this week's MCN (out 8 April).

The carbon-and-aluminium-framed E1pc boasts a new upgradeable concept which MotoCzysz says will allow owners to boost performance from 600 to 750-levels of performance and beyond in minutes.

The bike will compete in the TTXGP on the Isle of Man on 12 June, the world‚s first zero-emissions race, alongside over 20 other entries.

Its chief US rival is likely to be the Mission One, which boasts a similar level of polish and even greater production-readiness.

Michael Czysz, former 250GP racer and entrepreneur behind the bike, says the E1pc will significantly undercut its dramatically-styled $69,000 rival.

The new bike spells an immediate future of suspended animation for the MotoCzysz C1, the aspiring MotoGP contender which featured a twin-crank, longitudinally-mounted engine, designed to overcome gyroscopic forces created by the engine and quicken steering.

Rule-changes froze the bike out of MotoGP and subsequently WSB and AMA racing too. Full story in this week‚s MCN.
