CRP Racing's eCRP 1.4 – Click above to watch video after the jump

CRP Racing is rejoining the TTXGP and FIM ePower Championship parties this 2011 season and have taken the wraps off the eCRP 1.4 that Alessandro Brannetti will pilot for the factory team. The evolution of last year's TTXGP Euro championship-winning 1.2, the new machine will also be available for others to rent as part of the company's "Fly and Drive" program. The Italian-flavored electric superbike seems to come with everything you need to get your race-winning mojo workin', including a tutor.

The 1.4 boasts twin Agni motors within its cast aluminium frame good for 52 kW (69.73 horsepower) and can hit speeds of 220 km/h (136.7 miles per hour) with the 8.9 kWh battery configuration. It can compete strongly for 40 km (25 miles) on a charge. Along with top-end components, it also features a datalogger and sensors with built-in GPS and regulation maps. Hit the jump for a promotional clip touting the bike as well as a bonus video telling the dramatic story of the team's 2nd-place finish at the TTXGP world Championship at Albacete.

      That is a very expensive bike. Conservatively, the battery alone would cost $3k. I doubt they are planning on selling these on the mass market. Pretty sweet though.

      Cool... so when will it come stateside? The Brammo Empulse is currently king for street legal e-bikes here, but I'm not digging the naked look on it...

        Me neither. I prefer a full-bodied sports bike. Plus, Brammo would get some additional mileage with an aerodynamic body kit. Should be an option at least. Their designers have strange tastes...
