Futuristic Technology to Rule the World’s Oldest Motorcycle Race.

Victory Motorcycles will race at the iconic International Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) event on Victory electric race prototype motorcycles piloted by William Dunlop and Lee Johnston.

Competing in the Isle of Man TT electric class marks the first time that Victory Motorcycles has entered a professional motorcycle-racing event in Europe and raced an electric motorcycle.

The annual International Isle of Man TT, raced on the Irish Sea Island, is one of the most demanding races in the world. The SES TT Zero Challenge class event for electric motorcycles is a one-lap race round the island’s 37.73 mile Mountain Course scheduled for Wednesday, June 10, 2015.

The Victory Racing prototype electric race bike features a dedicated electric racing motor and power cells as well as highly sophisticated electric controls to maximize top power, power delivery, and durability under racing conditions. Victory engineers have further refined the electronics and chassis for the upcoming race with private test sessions in North America.

WILLIAM DUNLOP

The Dunlop name is synonymous with dominance at the Isle of Man TT. Son of Robert, brother of Michael, and nephew of legendary TT racer Joey, William Dunlop has himself stood on the podium at the TT no less than five times—though his best finish to date is second place. The Northern Irish racer is hoping to take his first win in this year’s TT Zero aboard the Victory RR.

Parker, the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, is providing the race-proven, high performance GVM PMAC motors for both machines. “Parker is thrilled to be involved with Victory Motorcycles in this historic event with these talented riders. We look forward to working with Victory® to develop high performance powertrains for electric motorcycles.“ www.parker.com/hev
