Morris Motorcycles prepares for TTXGP with one bike, one rider and 100 owners
The Swedish team will start its journey with the very hot Mavizen TTX02. As loyal readers know, this 130 mile-per-hour-capable machine uses the best bits of the race-winning Team Agni bike nestled within a KTM frame and runs on Linux. Sporting the team colors will be a woman who is herself, out of the ordinary. Annie Seel is quite at home on two wheels having tackled a number of Dakar Rallies, Mount Everest (I kid you not) and even rode last year's Eco Enduro in Denmark. The other important component in this mix is the crowdsourced ownership. Since putting out an open call for investors, Morris Motorcycles now has one hundred people holding a piece of the pie. Whether the result will be a case of too many cooks or a recipe for success remains to be seen but one thing is for certain, watching their effort unfold will be interesting.
