Competing directly with TTXGP winners Agni and the bike from the TTXGP organizers, the Mavizen TTX02, MotoCzysz has developed a plug-and-play electric powertrain that develops 100bhp and 250lb/ft. Those figures give the MotoCzysz Electric D1g1tal Dr1ve a performance advantage over both the above, but the system is also the only in the world to feature the ability to hot swap batteries. Available with or without batteries, the package includes the MotoCzysz E1pc's suitcase chassis that's capable of accepting virtually any swingarm from an existing literbike and a front-end of the user's choosing. Prices start at $24,500 without the 10kWh Lithium Polymer batteries and $42,500 with them, but Czysz is offering the first 15 customers a $10,000 discount on that price.
As a further split between TTXGP and Czysz, Michael plans to race in the Isle of Man's TT Zero event in June, where he'll hopefully have more luck than his DNF there last year. >
Here's the press release:
MotoCzysz Electric D1g1tal Dr1ve System
MotoCzysz announces the most integrated electric drive available. The first product from a family of integrated drives being developed by MotoCzysz is designed and engineered specifically for high performance electric motorcycles. The eDD system integrates advanced technologies with new proprietary industry first solutions. For individuals, teams and companies interested in building a high performance electric motorcycle, the new MotoCzysz D1g1tal Dr1ve system is the most advanced integrated electric drive system available.
MotoCzysz offers the eMoto2 solution: MotoCzysz
power, your imagination
Class leading, electric drive systems are rapidly moving beyond the resources available to individuals and small teams, but the vision and ability to build a next generation e motorcycle has not. With the MotoCzysz eDD system an individual or team can use their imagination and build a highly competitive proprietary race bike or utilize parts from a donor bike to build the electric motorcycle of their dreams.
The MotoCzysz LQ (liquid cooled) IPM (internal permanent magnet) 75kW/100hp electric motor is one of the highest torque/density motors in the industry (250+ft/lbs/340+Nm continuous 77lbs/35kg). The IPM solution generates more torque while being more efficient than any comparably sized AC induction motor. The MotoCzysz patent pending cooling system elevates the motor's nominal power output closer to the motor's peak power output. The MotoCzysz motor can deliver a continuous 75kW (100hp) and is 93% efficient under continuous heavy load (140C). The motor is available to accommodate either right or left hand chain drive.
The MotoCzysz LQ 240V 85kW Controller is specifically optimized for the motor, in both function and packaging. Accepting 240V and 350+ amps the sealed Controller contains ALL the high voltage components and plugs directly into the motor, resulting in a nearly completely wireless (high voltage) system. The Controller receives battery motor and rider command data and adjusts current accordingly. The Controller software has multiple embedded maps for setting or customizing functions like torque contouring and overall power settings.
MotoCzysz is currently the only EV manufacturer utilizing a functioning 'hot swap' battery solution and the MotoCzysz eDD system incorporates the latest generation. The new D1g1tal battery pack utilizes high density, high discharge LiPo (Lithium Polymer) cells. Each pack is embedded with monitoring capability that sends vital data wirelessly via IR (infrared) to a DVMS (d1g1tal Vehicle Management System) and ultimately to the Controller. Additionally, each battery pack houses an LED display that indicates the overall pack as well as individual cell group data.
Each MotoCzysz (patent pending) D1g1tal Battery pack weighs less than 18lbs and effortlessly "snaps" into the "suitcase" chassis. The "suitcase" holds 8 battery packs for a total ESS (energy storage system) of 10kWh.
MotoCzysz has designed the "suitcase" chassis to optimize the ESS mass location and vehicle's overall on board energy density. The chassis accommodates virtually any modern double sided swingarm from a 1,000cc motorcycle. The suitcase also ships with a matching top plate for the mounting/fabrication of a new or existing front end.

Fill the Grid
In an effort to support and assist electric racing around the world, MotoCzysz and their partners have developed the "Fill the Grid" program. The first 15 teams to purchase an eDD systems for competition will receive a $10,000 MotoCzysz sponsorship. The sponsorship reduces the cost of the complete eDD system to $32,500. We believe in and support electric solutions as a way to preserve what is very important to us-RACING.
Be a MotoCzysz factory supported team and Fill the Grid.
