2011 MotoCzysz E1pc Tests at Jurby

We spent the today at the Jurby course, as teams for the Isle of Man TT came out to the short airfield race track to test their machines before the TT starts in earnest tomorrow with its first races. Among those teams in attendance was MotoCzysz, and the team debuted its 200+ hp 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc for the first time to the public (we brought you a sneak peek yesterday). With Michael Czysz and Michael Rutter both taking laps on the new electric superbike, today was the first time the new E1pc had ever turned a wheel. Photos and more after the jump.

The test was a mixed bag for Czysz, reporting that the 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc handled extremely well and had gobs of power out of the corners, though the team clearly has some teething issues with the electrics and the new front-end suspension system that MotoCzysz has designed for the 2011 machine. The test comprised of only the 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc going around the track, and lasted for maybe a dozen laps. Last we heard, the team was hard at work in the pits getting ready for tomorrow’s first TT Zero practice.
