Mission Motorcycles Makes 150.059 MPH Electric Record @ Bonneville

Posted in Exotics by Me on November 3, 2009

Mission Motors keeps gaining more and more of my respect. Not only do they have an extremely interesting understanding of how to approach the electric motorcycle question, but they also make a damned fast electric motorcycle. Too bad it costs so much.

TTXGP Footage

In First Place: Team Agni

Posted in Motorsports by Me on June 12, 2009

Rob Barber, riding Team Agni’s electric GSX-R600, won the first TTXGP at the Isle of Man. He was followed by Thomas Schoenfelder riding for XXL, and Mark Buckley on Brammo’s Enertia TTR. Congratulations Team Agni!

Seven teams competed in the race after the rest failed to qualify or broke down during the race. In the end the race was a little anticlimactic, but I suppose that is to be expected with new technology. Hopefully we’ll see this race again next year with stronger and more teams.

TTXGP Online Broadcast

I am not totally positive that this will work, but this is the best source I have been able to find for a broadcast of the TTXGP. ITV4 in the UK is broadcasting the race at 10:45 GMT. Hopefully they will be webcasting it, too.

(Note: ITV4’s webcast requires Silverlight. Sorry.)

Worlds First TTXGP in Less Than a Month!

The first TTXGP at the Isle of Man kicks off on the 12 of June and I can’t wait! This has the potential to be a über interesting kick in the pants for the two-wheeled alternative energy vehicles, not to mention the alternative energy industry in general. (more…)

The EV-Orr

Posted in Exotics, Motorsports by Me on March 15, 2009

Lotus EV-0rr

This is the EV-0rr, designed by Xenophia Designs, and developed by Lotus and Evo Design Solutions. If they make a street version of this bike that retails for less than $20,000 this will be the future of motorcycles. For now we will have to make due with drooling over the illustrations. Eventually we’ll be watching it at the TTXGP and then, maybe, riding one. More at Hell for Leather Magazine.
