Team MotoCzysz Racing today unveiled the 2013 E1pc racebikes, which will be raced at the Isle of Man TT races this year. “Our team has been quietly preparing bikes, targeting an average lap speed of 176km/h” says Ray Crepeau, General Manager, MotoCzysz. Returning MotoCzysz riders and TT Zero winners, Michael Rutter and Mark Miller are focused on setting new electric class records at the TT this year. “The new bikes look very, very fast and I can’t wait to see what they’ll do,” says Rutter. “Once again, I am truly in awe. For the past four years, the MotoCzysz crew has consistently raised the bar and this year is no exception. I can’t wait to climb on and tackle the mountain course,” adds Miller.

For 2013, Team MotoCzysz has managed to boost the E1pc’s energy levels by 20% without increasing the bike’s weight – a commendable achievement. “2013 is as much about bike handling as it is about energy onboard. Adding range is simple, you add more batteries; but to achieve that without adding weight was an engineering feat,” says MotoCzysz founder and CEO, Michael Czysz. “The 2013 E1pc handling rivals any bike on the mountain, allowing Michael and Mark to easily carve the twisty mountain course faster than ever,” he adds.
