AddMichael Rutter wins third TT Zero, makes it four in a row for MotoCzysz *UPDATE

Michael Rutter has just won his third SES TT Zero, giving MotoCzysz it's fourth-in-a-row victory in the electric motorcycle race on the Isle of Man. But it was close. Damn close. One-point-six-seconds close. In the end, after months of engineering effort, the top spot on the podium – the only position that really matters to these guys – came down to which team was willing to take the most risk.

Add2013 TT Zero proving to be a MotoCzysz vs Mugen showdown [w/video]

Right now, ten teams are encamped on the Isle of Man during this TT motorcycle racing season with the goal of proving the worth of the electric racing motorcycles they've brought with them. With all three qualifying sessions now complete, markers have now been laid down and the shape of the 2013 edition of the TT Zero is becoming clear. Much like last year, the race on Wednesday looks like it's down to a shootout between Michael Rutter on the thoroughly updated 2013 MotoCzysz E1pc (pictured at r

Add2012 TT ZERO action, start to finish

Fans of electric motorsport generally have a hard time finding decent event coverage. Typically, it's not offered on TV, and video gleaned from the internet usually comes from either fans or individual teams and often lacks the professional production values we are accustomed to. Now, however, and possibly for a limited time only, footage from Britain's ITV 4 featuring the 2012 TT Zero is available to watch online.

AddRutter breaks electric ton for MotoCzysz at 2012 TT Zero

The electric ton, she is broken. The magical 100 mile per hour lap speed was shattered during the SES TT Zero when Michael Rutter officially completed a circuit of the Isle of Man's 37.73-mile Snaefell mountain course at an average 104.056 mph aboard the 2012 edition of the Team Segway MotoCzysz E1pc. Besides securing a place in history, Rutter and MotoCzysz also collected a check for £10,000 ($15,490 U.S. at today's rates).

AddMotoCzysz reveals 2012 E1pc with Kardashian-inspired butt

We are astonished. No, not because Team Segway MotoCzysz has just revealed its 2012 version of the E1pc and it looks pretty amazing. We expected that. Rather, we are somewhat stunned that the cultural impact of certain aspects of Kim and Khloe Kardashian's um, prominent physical attributes has just expanded into the geeky green world of electric motorcycle racing. More on that in a moment.

AddMotoCzysz wins race, Brammo wins North American championship in multi-continental TTXGP

While you might have passed last weekend throwing shrimps on the barbie, the people involved with the TTXGP electric motorcycle racing series were busy. Like, three-races-on three-continents busy. To sum up the action; Team Segway Racing MotoCzysz dominated the final event on the North American TTXGP calender while Brammo put together enough points to become season champion, Münch Racing handily won in Sweden and Voltron vanquished all at the TTXGP/eFX event in Australia.

AddMotoczysz most excellent video of E1pc electric motocycles racing the TT Zero

No hyperbole. This is the coolest electric motorcycle racing footage ever.

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
