Mission Motors' TTXGP race bike - Click above to enlarge

There's just a few more days until the running of the TTXGP at the Isle of Man. Being that this is the inaugural running of the world's first zero-emissions motorcycle race, it's really impossible to have a clear idea of which teams should be considered front-runners, but there's certainly lots of interest surrounding the machine from Mission Motors. We've seen video of the bike running through a makeshift street course here in the United States that's supposed to emulate the actual race, and we're expecting the team's race bike to be fast.

One thing's for certain: this race bike isn't quite the looker that Mission's upcoming street bike will be. The oversize (presumably to cover an absolutely massive battery pack) and aerodynamically-optimized fairing is surely meant to increase the bike's speed through the mountain course at the Isle of Man, but it doesn't really help the machine's looks any. Naturally, all of that will be forgiven if the team manages to win the race.
