eCRP 1.4 Electric Racebike Unveiled

As we previously reported, CRP Racing announced it will unveil the eCRP 1.4 zero-emission electric racebike at the Bobino Club in Milan, Italy. And so it did, announcing the eco-friendly workhorse will compete in the FIM e-Power and TTXGP with Alessandro Brannetti (# 44).

The eCRP 1.4 uses a lithium-polymer 7.4Kw/h battery module to power dual DC motors. It can reach a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph) and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds with 120 Nm (89 lb.ft.) of torque at 100%.

The 2011 workhorse is distinguished by a datalogger that can record the values from sensors for front and rear suspensions and throttle position. It is also able to measure volts / amps into and out of the controller, and monitor the temperature of the motors (updated in 2011) and controller.

All this data will be integrated with the GPS that records speed, acceleration and trajectory in real-time, with the objective of increasing the rider’s and team’s ability to be effective in practice and at the race.

CRP Racing has chosen the stage of the Bobino Club in the heart of Milan to announce the imminent opening of the 2011 season and to publicly unveil the eCRP 1.4.

“The team’s accomplishments have generated substantial interest and support in Italy and abroad; especially in the U.S., where fans are waiting with great enthusiasm for the arrival of the first modern electric motorbike that we can proudly say, was made in Italy,” the company explains in a statement. “The sustainable mobility project will see the creation of a 100% electric super sport motorbike which will be previewed at EICMA, the international two-wheel exhibition.”
