FIM creates new series for elelctric Superbike in 2010

FIM Creates Plug-In Series For 2010

The FIM creates a new Series for Electric Motorcycles in 2010

Following the success of the TTXGP race held on the Isle of Man on June 12, the FIM (Fédération
Internationale de Motocyclisme) has decided to create a FIM Series for electric bikes in 2010. This
new FIM Series will be run inside the Road Racing Grand Prix Commission, a great and innovative
project led by Mr Azhar Hussain a UK Entrepreneur founder of the TTXGP. The FIM Series for
electric bikes will provide an international platform for the development of electric bikes and the
technology behind them to be tested in an exciting and challenging way. It aims at driving low-
carbon technological innovation forward, to demonstrate that clean-emission transport technologies
have matured and can be fun, fast and exciting.

This is sweet! I wonder how much one of these suckers will cost. I'm sure they will have to homologate these.
