Zero Motorcycles and Hollywood Electrics Race at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb [Video]
The two announced they will team up and enter several electric motorcycles in the PPIHC race, both stock and modified. We're so looking forward to see the modded ones: it's been more than 4 yeas since Hollywood Electrics has been authorized as a dealer and workshop for Zero bikes, and is also the #1 seller, so things are going to be really interesting.
Zero and Hollywood Electrics will send Aaron Frank, Jeremiah Johnson, Brandon Nozaki Miller, Jeff Clark, and Nathan Barker to race at the PPIHC, all riders with extensive experience aboard both classic and electric motorcycles, too.
The PPIHC is one of the most revered proving grounds for motorcycles and these races date as far as 90 years back. The circuit is 12.42 miles long (just under 20 km) and has no less than 156 turns. To get a better picture about what racing at the Pikes Peak is like, here's a Ducati completing the race in less than 10 minutes, after the jump. Will Zeros beat this? We'll find out on June 30.
