Around the Isle of Man with the MotoCzysz E1pc motoczysz e1pc tt zero winner 1 560x393

The Isle of Man TT organizers have released some on-board footage of the TT Zero winning 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc. Other than the impressive speed from the electric sportbike, what’s really noticeable about this video is the wind noise. The subject of electric motorcycles lacking the exhaust note normally associated with motorcycles has been hashed out numerous times before, but watching this video reminds us of a comment that Michael Czysz once made to us about how electric motorcycles were like sailboats.

Once you get out to the open water, and turn off your motor it transforms the experience into something else. We imagine that must have crossed rider Mark Miller’s mind at some point…before he quickly had to train his attention on the rapidly approaching street course. Check the video out after the jump.

    Thrilling.

    Like watching paint dry.

    Andrew – What if it is body paint?

    Another comparison besides the sailboat is the sound of silent flight from gliders.

    The electric advancements are great, but I’d also like to see more information about the front-end. Isn’t this the 1st time a non-tele front-end has won a major race since the Britten?
