Updated: 19 November 2014

An Italian firm with GP racing and domestic championship-winning experience has launched a new TTXGP electric racer – and it’s revealed here for the first time.

CRP Racing’s eCRP 1.0 is the first e-racer to come out of Italy, and builds on over 30 years of racing experience in 125 and 250GPs and engineering partnerships with MotoGP, F1, WRC and NASCAR.

The 110mph machine will be available to TTXGP teams next year for a base price of 30,000 Euros, with technical assistance part of the package.

The firm says the eCRP 1.0, is a pure racing bike, untroubled by the compromises suffered by machines aspiring to a roadgoing production future, with easy handling and sensitivity to chassis adjustment to the fore.

CRP is the leading two-stroke tuning firm in Italy, winning the Road Racing Italian Championship and Honda Trophy in 2007 and 2009.

The eCRP 1.0 will be officially launched at the (MIA) event Cleaner Racing Conference at the NEC in January.
