Finally! An Electric Motorcycle To Take On The Gas Powered Bikes
Meet Chip Yates. We like him because he builds awesome stuff. Like electric motorcycles that can take on gas powered bikes and actually have a shot at beating them. Hallelujah. The first showdown will be held on January 9th 2011 at the California Speedway, Chip will be competing in the WERA Pirelli Sportsman Heavyweight Twins Superbike class along side superbikes like the KTM RC8 and Ducati 1198r.
“Our electric motorcycle will compete head on with real racing superbikes such as the Ducati 1198 and KTM RC8 as well as other established manufacturers, and we expect to work hard to show the world that electric technology can achieve laptime parity with gasoline superbikes,we’re not going on track to make up the numbers; we’re going out to compete in order to raise our game and catch up to these gasoline guys.” Chip Yates
