2016 Victory RR Prototype Electric Bike

AT ISLE OF MAN

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

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.

OUR RIDER


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
