Leaders in electric motorcycle technology - including Brammo, KillaCycle, Mission Motors, MotoCzysz and many more - will field purpose-built racing motorcycles to compete for one lap around the famed mountain course. Some accomplished TT racers, including Americans Mark Miller and Tom Montano, have been contracted to ride, and each is hungry to make a mark in the history books as the winner of the world’s first green GP. The machinery looks serious, and if you’ve viewed our exclusive video documenting preliminary testing of the Mission Motors prototype at Infineon Raceway, that machine in particular looks surprisingly fast. How the event will play out, however, is anyone’s guess. Bike builders are playing their cards close, and more than a few electric bike experts doubt that current-technology batteries can even carry enough juice to make it over the mountain and back at anything resembling a competitive speed. With this in mind, the inaugural TTXGP will either be the most important motorcycling event of the next century, or, if none of the bikes complete the lap, a complete debacle. Either way, it’s not to be missed, and we’re going to be there to share the event with you. I’ll be posting updates direct from the event here on this blog and, if all goes well, I’ll even have the opportunity to ride a few of these eMotos myself. Monitor this space for updates.
