MotoCzysz E1pc: Michael Czysz’s battery-powered superbike is ready to take on the IoM


The MotoCzysz E1pc 'digital superbike' shows the way ahead for high performance battery-powered motorcycles. Suddenly, the future doesn't look so bad after all...

The MotoCzysz E1pc is all set to race in the TTXGP, which is scheduled for the 12th of June, at the Isle of Man. ‘In less than 24 hours I leave to go to the biggest race of my life, not because it is the largest, not because it is the fastest but because it will be the first time a MotoCzysz motorcycle will compete in an FIM sanctioned event,’ says Michael Czysz on his blog.

With its lithium-ion battery packs and three electric motors, the MotoCzysz E1pc ‘digital superbike’ can accelerate from zero to 192km/h in around 7-8 seconds, which really is quite phenomenal. ‘A motorcycle that is unlike anything I have ever ridden. No gas, no oil, no clutch, no need to even warm up the engine – no engine. Gone is the age old ritual of rhythmical throttle blips that can audible seduce a motorcyclist into a pre ride trance – now your bike waits for you. Enter what may be the next big thing in motorcycles; invisible, nearly silent and magically linear power,’ says Mr Czysz.

We must say we are intrigued by the MotoCzysz E1pc. It looks good, goes fast and even sounds cool… in a different sort of way. ‘The digital superbike, like your computer, has ‘open architecture’ and can be upgraded and reconfigured. This is definitely an industry first and may be a major paradigm shift in the way people buy and own motorcycles,’ says Michael. Hmm… maybe the future of fast motorcycles is not going to be so bad after all…!

This guy has more sack and imagination than 99% of the planet...any failure he is willing to first experience and then accept would force that 99% to commit suicide. Failure for him leads to the next opportunity to correct.

E1pc, Awesome bike...Very well done! This is the future for bikes and cars and it shows that the US can do it. I hope this racing technology succeeds to something that can be used by regular bike fans and charged at home at the end of a good days ride.

And it was created in PORTLAND!

I love it and would love to be a part of the company...
