Sur-Ron aim for glory in E-Xplorer Championship

1 of 3

Electric off-road firm Sur-Ron will be entering the first-ever FIM E-Xplorer world championship with a modified version of their Storm Bee and backing from reigning British Superbike champions, OMG Racing.

Based on the standard £8495 plug-in machine, which is available as a road-legal bike, mechanics have stripped away the ABS, traction control, and lights to leave a silent assassin that’s ready to tackle off-road tracks across the globe.

The rear brake has been moved from the left bar to a conventional foot control, with K-Tech re-valving the forks and shock.

The discs and pads have also been changed, but the standard frame, 104V 55Ah battery, swingarm, and 30.2bhp motor remain.

Carbon trim completes the aggressive and sporty look. Sur-Ron will also sell bikes to customers in this trim, allowing you to enjoy hours of motocross antics, without upsetting the neighbours.

The machines will be raced under the PCR-e Sur-Ron Factory Racing banner as the official team of Great Britain.

PCR-e is an e-bike dealer and technical centre, which is run by Paul Curran who is also the Team Principal of OMG Racing.  

Racing kicks off on May 13 in Barcelona, before moving to the Swiss mountains on June 23-24. Round three will take place in France on July 29, with the series intended to boost awareness of electric motocross.

It will look to highlight gender equality, with each team having one male and one female rider.
