Race organizers for the upcoming TTXGP zero-emissions motorcycle race commissioned an electric motorcycle prototype called the TTX01 late last year to show what kind of potential exists in alternative motorcycle designs, and it appears to be doing exactly that.
After taking the machine to Circuit Zolder in Belgium, a couple of professional racers had some interesting things to say about the all-electric motorcycle and definitely seem to have come away impressed, despite the fact that the bike had recently sustained a bit of damage and was therefore down about 30% on power.
Click past the break to watch the video – trust us, you won't regret it. We're becoming more and more impressed by the amazing sound that these electric bikes manage to put out. Seriously, the TTX01 sounds like some sort of crazed swarm of locusts or something, which really makes us wish the video didn't feature that irritating musical soundtrack.
*Update: Proving wishes really do come true, the irritating musical soundtrack has now been removed.
