2Turpin takes top podium spot at Indy FIM eRoad Racing round for Brammo

Last weekend, Gasoline Alley – the garage area at Indianapolis Motor Speedway – saw some race machines that were just a little bit different from those it's accommodated in the past: the electric motorcycles of the FIM eRoad Racing series. The North American championship saw its second and, apparently, final event of the 2013 season occur at the historic venue as part of the motorcycle Grand Prix weekend that also featured MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3 and AMA Pro Races featuring a field of H

2Bostrom wins first FIM eRoad Racing round for Brammo *UPDATE

After holding two separate electric motorcycle racing championships over the past three years, the FIM ePower and TTXGP championships have finally come together to create one high-level series – the eRoad Racing World Cup – and, it's already started racing. Two weeks ago, the European season first twisted its throttle in Valencia, Spain, while this past weekend saw the North American season kick off at the biggest and baddest motorcycle racing event of the year; MotoGP weekend at Maz

5FIM announces 'first ever' electric motocross race, E-MX, forgets own previous event

Institutional memory can be a funny thing. Sometimes short, sometimes selective, it always makes us wonder just how much effort was put in looking backwards before sending out press releases trumpeting a "first ever" product or event.

15Highly modified Honda CBR1000RR hits 265 mph at Bonneville

While James Hoegh was running his Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat prototype to a record-setting 172.211 miles per hour at the BUB Motorcycle Trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Honda moto tuner Al Lamb was preparing his own attempt on a very different bike. His 400-horsepower Honda CBR1000 is a sit-on – as opposed to lie-down or fully streamlined in which the rider is hidden – but otherwise is about as faired as Hoegh's Confederate is naked.

6Michael Barnes wins joint TTXGP/FIM ePower round on solar power

The eGrandPrix TTXGP and FIM ePower electric motorcycle racing series have, once again, held a joint round at California's fabulous Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in front of the huge crowds assembled for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix. The result? A commanding win for Michael Barnes aboard the solar-powered Barracuda Lightning bike.

AddTTXGP and FIM may hold "joint rounds" and a "unifying" final

The TTXGP and FIM ePower electric motorcycle racing series have both announced their 2011 calenders. Along with an amazing assortment of venues comes news the two organizations may be holding "joint rounds," including a "unifying" season-ending final. This means teams from both series will be competing together on the same track while earning points towards their respective championships. We believe the end goal is to combine the two and form a single super-electric series in 2012.

3FIM e-Power Laguna Seca line up announced

The third installment of the Federation Internationale De Motocyclisme (FIM) e-Power road racing series arrives this weekend at Laguna Seca with the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix. The starting grid is only about eleven deep – there were hopes for a field of 15 – but it promises to be more entertaining than the first e-Power event with the inclusion of a number of "home teams" to root for. In addition to a trio of American efforts that we have previously seen compete in the rival TTXGP ser

16FIM holds first e-Power race - was it a flop?

After flirting with the idea of teaming up with the TTXGP after the inaugural Isle of Man event last summer, the FIM (that's the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme in everyday English French) decided instead to go it alone and hold it's own stinkin' electric motorcycle road racing series. Called the e-Power International Championship, this weekend saw the first event take place just before the LeMans 24 Hour Moto. While we weren't on hand to judge its odiferousness for ourse

As most of you probably know, the 15th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 15) is kicking off in Copenhagen this week to tackle our planet-size environmental problem. With the stakes literally sky high and a tone as serious as a myocardial infarction, what better time and place to hold a multi-day Enduro motocross racing event? None apparently, as the FIM Ride Green Eco Enduro gets geared up to add some life to the proceedings and demonstrate that reducing CO2 emissions doesn't mean th

AddFIM to observe World Environment Day at upcoming Superbike race

Adding fuel to the fire of whether or not racing activities could ever be considered green at all is the fact that the Federation International De Motocyclisme (FIM) will be observing the United Nations Environment Program's World Environment Day, which is on June 5. Considering all of the carbon emissions that will be taking place at Miller Motorsports Park for the upcoming Superbike World Championship race and AMA Superbike race, the planting of six new trees will not overcome the environmenta
