Sources have been hinting that MotoCzysz had two bikes in the works for the upcoming TT Zero, and now we’ve gotten confirmation from the Portland, Oregon company that it will indeed be fielding two bikes at the Isle of Man TT. As with the past two years, Mark Miller will be at the helm of the MotoCzysz machine, but this year he will be joined by Michael Rutter on the second Czysz bike.
Mark Miller rode the MotoCzysz E1pc to victory last year during the TT Zero, while Rutter was a solid Top 10 contender in the Superbike, Superstock, and Senior TT classes. Though the Englishman has won 27 BSB Championship races, and competed in both MotoGP and World Superbike, this will be Rutter’s first foray into electric motorcycle racing.
Details are sketchy on MotoCzysz’s 2011 bike, though we imagine describing it as harder, better, faster, stronger wouldn’t be stretching reality too far. The news that MotoCzysz will have two bikes at the Isle of Man is certainly interesting, as the Oregonian company is clearly gunning for the 100mph mark, and the outright win.
Idle speculation on our part here at A&R would be that one bike will be a standard track/road course machine, while the other would be purpose-built for TT duty. We’ll have to wait and see if our hypothesis is correct, but you can be certain Michael Czysz is keen on keeping his TT Zero record intact.
