The Electric Motorcycle Community Mourns The Loss Of Matthew Dieckmann


Matt Dieckmann (light blue shirt) in the TTXGP Infineon Winners Circle

Matthew Dieckmann, founder of Electric Race Bikes passed away yesterday as a result of traffic accident while riding his electric motorcycle.

Many in the electric motorcycle community knew Matt through his TTXGP and e-Power race efforts and notable successes. His Electric Race Bikes team took 3rd place at the TTXGP season opener at Infineon Raceway and continued to impress through out the season with acts of good will, strong determination and solid performances. There is a great tribute to Matthew on eGrandPrix.com including some great pics of Matt and his bike.

Matt’s presence in the electric motorcycle world will be greatly missed. RIP Matt. Our thoughts go out to the Electric Race Bikes team and Matt’s family and friends.

A fund for Matt‘s funeral expenses has been set up if you would like to give financial help to Matt’s family.

    Between this and the death of 13-year-old racer Peter Lenz at Indy last weekend, it’s a terrible reminder that anything can happen at any time on the track or on the street. RIP Matt.

    It’s been a sobering week for sure. This was tough to write with my thoughts drifting to people close to me who have been injured or killed on a bike. Tough road ahead for family and friends.

    Motorsports also lost Chase, Damian and Mats of US Highland recently in a plane crash. Any time the human body moves past running speed there is a risk of serious injury. Matt was doing what he loved and the risks he took made the world a better place.
