Mission R to Enter the 2011 TTXGP
"TTXGP is very pleased to be welcoming Mission Motors back to the TTXGP world racing series," stated Azhar Hussain, CEO of TTXGP. "They are a formidable competitor and the Mission R is a very exciting addition to our grid. The 2011 season promises to be an exciting one with more new teams, fast paced innovation; and the very best in electric performance."
The Mission R packs 14.4 kWh and 141 horsepower in a package smaller than a modern 600cc sportbike. The liquid-cooled 3-phase AC Induction motor creates 115 ft-lbs (156 Nm) of torque at 6,400 rpm, propelling the Mission R to a top speed of over 160 mph (258 km/h) in a singe gear.
The MissionEVT 100kW motor controller comes with customizable regenerative braking maps and throttle maps. The chassis has been designed by James Parker, while Tim Prentice of Motonium was responsible with the design.
"Mission Motors is proud to be a part of the TTXGP racing series. TTXGP has played a consistent and pioneering role in shaping the future of motorsports, and the future of transportation. Mission Motors looks forward to participating in the 2011 motorcycle racing season," said Edward West, Mission Motors Founder. "With the help of our sponsors, including Texas Instruments and Pectel/Cosworth, we are excited to be returning to the track in 2011 with the phenomenal Mission R motorcycle."
"The crucible of the racing circuit is one of the key ways we advance our technology. Pushing the envelope for what is possible with electric drive shapes not only the future of motorsports, but the future of transportation," concluded West.
