Sneak Peak: 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc

Dailies, Galleries -


On Tuesday, we gave you the first look at the 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc’s new 200bhp motor. Now here’s a teaser shot of the completed bike. As you can see, its battery pack — now with cells produced by Dow Kokam — radically differs from the individual cells of the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc. Also making its first appearance are the new colors that come with the Segway sponsorship. Of course, a motorcycle capable of lapping the Isle of Man at an average speed over 100mph is about as far removed as you can get from the Gob mobile, but hey, I guess they’re both electric. We’re shooting the bike tomorrow, more then.

While you’re waiting, why don’t you check out our review of the previous bike.

    Easy on the Gob mobile Wes; those things are a bloody marvel of engineering. It’s not Segway’s fault we’re not rational beings.

  • Chris Davis

    What’s Alps doing for MC? Clearly, not the suits.

  • Coreyvwc

    CZysz, he understands aesthetics. Even if they don’t win, they’ll be the best looking losers on the grid.

  • Frosty_spl

    Love this team. Hope they win.

  • dux

    Sorta cool looking. How many MP3′s does it hold?

  • damien

    Please god, let this post be from my tip. I need that Rossi book.

  • Joe

    Segway Racing? That could be interesting, maybe on a go-cart track. I wonder if you could highside one of those things!(A Segway, that is, not the bike.)

  • Anders

    What’s with the display? Will spectators be able to see the displayed battery status or the speed?

  • Thom

    So to play Devils Advocate .

    What is this ? Round Four of unfulfilled promises and broken dreams about to be unleashed upon us by the Wishful Thinking MotoCzysz ?

    Interesting also that Segway is sponsoring the M/C when in fact Segway is deeply into Chapter 11 Bankruptcy . So where are they getting the money ? My Tax Dollars I suppose ?

    Does that seem right to you ?

    • rohorn

      When did Segway file bankruptcy?

      • Brammofan

        This is how rumors are started. I see no indication that Segway filed anything like this.

        • rohorn

          That’s what I thought – thanks.

    • Wes Siler

      Round Four? If I remember correctly, they won last year, then again at Laguna Seca.

      MotoCzysz is financially healthy.

      So you pay “taxes” to a company that makes electric go-peds? I think you’ve been had, my friend.

    I just want them to produce a bike like the one in the new star trek movie.. so sexy.. now make it happen.
