Last week we showed you the . That test, and all previous tests that have been done, were conducted with the batteries not installed into the bike. This week we bring you footage of the electric race bike all gussied up and ready to go with its battery packs on-board.
Seeing the bike take a closer shape to its racing form is certainly a sight in of itself, but what intriuged us was how fast this bike can go. In the video linked after the jump we see the bike clearly hit 120mph. It does this in only 11 seconds. Sandbagging us in this video, the E1pc apparently has more, with MotoCyzsz predicting that the bike can do the 0-120mph test in a mere 7 or 8 seconds. More after the jump
With the batteries now on-board, MotoCzysz was able to deliver the amperage required to obtain the target torque output from the motors within the designed voltage parameters, seeing no appreciable sag. That was the main purpose of the bike’s testing.
In the video, you will see the MotoCzysz E1pc “Digital Superbike” go from 0–120 in less than 11 seconds, and this is with a very slow, 3 second roll on. The fun part about this test is the fact the bike isn’t even in top form yet. The current video is with a bike that utilizes only 75% of the total battery pack, which did not even have a full charge. If all of MotoCzysz’s estimates are correct, the Digital Superbike could do 0-120mph times in the 7 to 8 second range.
The MotoCzysz battery packs are a very integrated and sophisticated solution, which incorporates BMS (battery management system) contoured profile and are fully “hot swap” functioning. They will undoubtedly be the most advanced battery packs at the TT, which puts the E1pc at the top of our watch list at TTXGP.
