You have to keep looking or you’ll miss the developments over at Motoczysz. They have new video of the E1 on the dyno, showing a slow roll on that makes 0-120mph in under 11 seconds. According to the blog entry on their site, a more aggressive roll on could have dropped the time by perhaps 2 seconds.
In addition, this first test utilized 75% of our total IOM pack and not at a full state of charge. If all of our estimates are correct, we could have a Digital Superbike with 0-120mph times in the 7 to 8 second range.
0-120 in 7 to 8 seconds? Nice. As Michael points out, this isn’t a drag bike, either, it’s a sportbike. With handling of the Motoczysz probably already well sorted, this should be quite a bike.
The video also shows the battery packs installed on the bike contoured to fit the fairing, the previous video used remote batteries. It’s looking good.
