Futuristic Technology to Rule the World’s Oldest Motorcycle Race.
Ever since the first running in 1907, the Isle of Man TT has been revered as the world’s most demanding test of both man and machine. Held not on some finely groomed racing circuit but instead on a 37.73-mile loop of public roads that carry competitors up and over Snaefell Mountain, the TT pushes the limits of possibility like no other event. What better place to put cutting-edge electric motorcycle technology to the test?
Victory Racing returns to the Isle of Man in 2016 to compete in the zero-emissions TT Zero racing event, this year with an all-new, all-electric Victory RR racing motorcycle that will be piloted by TT veteran William Dunlop. Now with a more energy-dense battery module and an optimized motor capable of producing 0-60 times under 3 seconds and top speeds in the range of 160mph, the RR is set to deliver an undeniable dose of Modern American Muscle to this very international event.
Just like at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in the USA, Victory Racing participates in the TT Zero to test the latest technology and prove performance, paving the way for new developments that will improve the next generation of Victory production models like the allelectric Victory Empulse TT. Read on to discover more about the new developments for this year.
