Have you ever wondered about the future of electric motorcycles? Isle of Man’s electric TT Zero race has to be the pinnacle of the future for electric motorcycles, after you watch this video of the Mugen Shinden Ni lap the Isle, you’ll understand why.
You can read more about the bike and the rider, John McGuinness, riding the Mugen Shinden Ni at the Isle last year on RideApart here.
This is the first time I’ve heard decent audio and seen an onboard cam of this electric superbike and I gotta say I like what I hear.
Imagine for a second your motorbike of the future, remove the gears and rear brake, and just wind on as much speed as you can handle and take off at a rapid, rapid rate.
I think I’d still miss the sound of a combustion engine.
