Lord Drayson, UK Minister of Science and Technology, took the wraps off the TTXGP exclusive CRP Racing eCRP 1.0 today at the 4th Annual Cleaner Racing Conferance. CRP’s goal is to innovate in the world of motorcycle roadracing and the all electric race bike seems to be a good fit for the company. The eCRP 1.0 dual motor electric drive is based on 2009 TTXGP winning Team Agni X01, while the rest of the bike was designed and built in house by CRP and incorporates 30 years of race proven technological know-how.
CRP Racing does not have plans to field an electric race team but will make the bike available to teams who want to race in the TTXGP. The bike will not be available to teams wishing to run races in the competing FIM ePower Series who has yet to announce a race team entry.
eRace hopefuls now have two options when choosing a turn key solution to electric motorcycle racing. However, the eCRP will not come with a factory support and training option like the TTX02 does. It will be interesting to see how many teams take Mavizen and CRP up on their race package offerings. Just today 666 Road Racing Limited, a carbon race component company out of the UK announced they will field a Mavizen TTX02 in the UK TTXGP series. Who will be the first team to field an eCRP? Stay tuned.
