MotoCzysz 100HP Plug’nPlay e-Powertrain

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

MotoCzysz has developed a plug-and-play electric motorcycle powertrain called the Electric D1g1tal Dr1ve (eDD) claiming 100 hp and 250lb/ft of torque. With figures like those, the new e-motor has a distinct performance advantage over rival offerings from companies such as Agni (last year’s TTXGP winner) and Mavizen (TTXGP founder Azhar Hussain’s outfit). Added to that is the fact that it is currently the only in e-racer powerplant in  the world to feature hot swappable batteries. The eDD, a.k.a. “the suitcase”  houses  a proprietary controller, motor, and 8 batteries. MotoCzysz will be using the eDD on their 2010 E1pc D1g1tal Superbike, which they’ve entered into the 2010 Isle of Man TT Zero, and in an effort to help fill the grid they’re offering the game changing e-powertrain to other teams as well.

Available with or without batteries MotoCzysz’s suitcase chassis has been designed to be highly adaptable and allow modular motorcycle construction. The eDD can be mated with virtually any existing litrebike swingarm and front end of the user’s choosing.

As further incentive to e-racer privateers, MotoCzysz is offering a $10,000 sponsorship to the first 15 teams to purchase an eDD system,  reducing the cost of the complete suitcase with batteries from $42,500 to $32,500 (USD). A batteryless eDD can also be had for $25,000.
