Motoczysz E1pc - Click above for an image gallery

Finally, speculation on the appearance of the Motoczysz E1pc can end as the fledgling American motorcycle maker has released an official set of pictures of the machine that will be taking on the rest of the field at the upcoming TTXGP zero-emission eGrandPrix motorcycle race at the Isle of Man. Things are shaping up largely as we would have expected, with the E1pc sharing its basic layout and look – including the innovative front suspension design – with Michael Czysz's earlier race bike, the C1, which never actually made it to a MotoGP race.

Such a fate appears highly unlikely for the E1pc, and Czysz is understandably excited to see one of his two-wheelers hit the track in actual competition. In a post on the Motoczysz official blog, Czysz says, "In less than 24 hours I leave to go to the biggest race of my life, not because it is the largest, not because it is the fastest but because it will be the first time a MotoCzysz motorcycle will compete in an FIM sanctioned event."

As far as we're concerned, he has a right to be proud of his team's accomplishment. Looking over the pictures of the E1pc, we can see that there are three motors (one spins backwards) and 10 battery modules that appear to be swappable in relatively easy fashion. Perhaps the geekiest bit (in a good way, of course) is the iPhone directly in front of the rider acting as the electric bike's dash. Check out the photo gallery below for more, and be sure to click past the break for a short video of the bike in action.

      Stunning machine. Full purpose built racer. I love it. The lessons we learn at the track always make life on the road much easier.

      Is this an iPhone/IPod touch that I see on photo #2?

        Is reading the article just too boring these days? I mean, it is 3 paragraphs, but still...

        ".... Perhaps the geekiest bit (in a good way, of course) is the iPhone directly in front of the rider acting as the electric bike's dash. ..."

        Yep, another case of "Post first, think second". Sorry for the noise...
        Awesome bike. So pretty...

      "..I won't repeat this too often now.."

      Oh yes you will, gorr. You never stop doing so!

      Like a robot whose programming has gone a bit wonky and cant stop itself repeating gobbledegook all over cyberspace for eternity.

        Haha... Yeah, my thoughts exactly. His thoughts are all over the place.

        People ask "why?"...... well, because we can and because its fun.... and no one else is doing it.... and like gas stuff, we're always looking to make it better, faster. This is just another "engine" and another "source of fuel".... Its a completely untapped market for a new race and new game.

        They didn't build it for a commuter, they built it to win races.

      Nice bike for close racing circuit. Where the energy come from ? How long to make 60 000 miles on the road without waiting more then 5 minutes at a time to recharge ? Will high financial circles attack this compagny with false goverment recall campains like they do with any green small start-up compagnies ? Is this site and tesla own by high financial subsidized regulated circles ? Do they sell this bike with a 12 feets electrical cord ? Where do we put the electric 12 feets cord when we ride ? Where do we sit while recharging for 4 hours or more while travelling from los-angeles to las vegas ?

      I think that it's maybe a good bike to race on close-loop race circuits. Yes for the zealous it can be recharged by winds day and nights, nuclear, coal, natural gas, tidal, geothermal, solar panels all of which are costly, polluting and own and operated by the same susidized over-regulated high financial circles.

      I won't repeat this too often now, put a green devise on sale near where i live for cash money, this message is mainly for new start up compagnies wanting to make a sale. Forgot for all the time the petrol resellers named gm, toyota, volks, caterpillar, prath and whitney, nuclear international association of a-black-hole, vatican and allah and mormons, general peoples, corporate artists including cinema, videos and musics including heavy metal like slayer or metallica and the beatles, copernic, einstein, etc.
      All these folks are junior at best. They stopped entertaining us long time ago and now they feel empty and are indeed empties. No one voice what is energy as good as me. Everyone, 100% of peoples 100% of the time will try to convince you that energy is limited and costly. This is a death wish, that's all. Energy has always been illimited and will remain unlimited and non polluting from now up to year 10 000 000 000 000. The folks trying to convince that there is limited supply of energy are soaking up energy of others, why do like bush and rockfeller ? yes they are rich financially but look at them, only zombies talk and work for them. Actually almost everyone is looking for a religion to heal themself. Energy was the ancient name for religion but i changed it just before the realease of the bible 6 000 years ago. This term was too painful memory for the peoples. Don't be surprised to only read kind of stupid wishs of any sort here in this site about energy, they come from deeply depressed minds.

      Ford, gm, honda, toyota have ruined you car dream, they selled the recipe to taxmoney peoples, that's why now cars are only for lease of gimmick credit tricks. Taxmoney ends with starvation for everyones because it's based on pure negativity and lack of new energy( practical ideas called an invention).

      The sound it makes is incredible (in other videos linked to that one).

      I don't know if it was being pushed to the limit in that video, but I did expect it to be a little faster. Then again, it is hard to gauge when the camera is on a gasoline powered super sport bike.

      And again another annoying post from Gorr :( Nice to see that Motoczysz came back with again an innovating bike!
