The UK Minister of Science and Innovation, Lord Drayson took wraps off the Italian CRP eCRP 1.0 electric race bike at the 4th Annual MIA Cleaner Racing Conference at NEC, Birmingham. CRP Racing combined their strong race bike development background with race proven Team Agni electric drive technology to create a bike for teams who want to race in the TTXGP series. At this point the bike is exclusive to TTXGP and not available to race in the FIM ePower Series. CRP has not announced plans to field a race team in TTXGP.

    race proven? I don’t think so.

    There were 6 teams using agni motors. 3 of them finished, 3 of them did not finish….. and they didn’t finish due to the MOTORS failing. From brush failures, to magnets that came loose…. there was a 50% success rate at the race…..

    not sure why everyone is using this agni, for the price, I would expect a higher survival rate.

    Good point. I have done a lot of thinking on that. Many talk about batteries being the weak link. It would seem motors are the weak link. Remember Brammo burnt up the AC motor they ran in thier second bike because they ran it hotter on purpose.

    It seems the logic between the batteries and the motor is the weak link and Lynch’s many years experience got them the win. I hope CRP and Mavizen include all that in their bikes. The design is race proven in TTXGP and the many races Lynch entered before it.

    the reason Agni won, is because Lynch knew that he could only get ~17hp continous out of those motors. Even the teams that knew about the current limits had failures not related to overheating…. like brush issues and magnets coming loose.

    At least Mavizen and CRP are putting them somewhat outboard, so they get proper cooling.

    Maybe its just a quality control issue? Its not like the motor shorted or blew apart.
