As electric bike manufacturers continue to arm themselves for this summer’s shootouts on racetracks around the world, MotoCzysz has released video, a photo, and some details about their new 2011 D1-11 VDR D1g1tal Dr1ve motor.
The electric motor may have a strange name, but its performance is nothing to laugh at. It’s supposed to put out over 150 kilowatts or 200 horsepower, and spins to 10,000 rpms, powering the 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc race bike.
The motor is supposed to run more efficiently this year, perhaps partly due to the integrated cooling circuit and gear-driven primary. That efficiency is priceless when managing battery power in order to win a race.
The power output from the new motor sounds impressive, but remember that competitor Chip Yates’s electric machine puts out 240 horsepower. He’s focusing on the Pikes Peak hill climb race, though, while MotoCzysz has their sights set on the upcoming Isle of Man TT.
Want to see the video of MotoCzysz dyno testing their E1pc bike with the new motor? You can view it at their website, but online moto mag Asphalt and Rubber has uploaded it to YouTube. See below.
